I cut my teeth in the restaurant business in SD, managed a high end full service restaurant/night club in the gas lamp district. I had a nice cottage in Mission Bay, it was 4 houses down from the Boardwalk. Talk about a never ending party. My only complaint is the never ending supply of bums. I can't tell you how many times one would come up to my house as we were grilling out asking for food or waking up to find one sleeping in my hammock in the front yard(if you can call it that, lol)
So yeah San Diego rocks, the bums not so much.
That's why I always laugh at the idiot bums you see in Cleveland or Gary, IN. Just panhandle enough cash to make it to San Diego and you are set, bum style.
