San Diego Happy Half Hour Podcast: Episode 27

An iconic bayside restaurant closes, Karl Strauss Brewing Company expands, and the founder of “LinkedIn for the restaurant industry” stops by


Published:

On today’s Happy Half Hour, hosts Erin Chambers Smith and Troy Johnson along with producer Archana Ram share the latest in dining and drinking news, like buzz about Slater’s 50/50 rebranding and more locations due in 2017. Plus, after serving 22 million patrons at its Port location, Anthony’s Fish Grotto will close at the end of the month. We also chat about Karl Strauss’s expansion and what you can expect at their new downtown L.A. Outpost.

And what would a happy hour podcast be without drinks? We’re sipping on Eppig Brewing’s collaboration with San Diego-based post rock/metal band Weight of the Sun (disclaimer: our producer David Martin is the lead vocalist). And calendar alert! The Weight of the Sun IPA will be flowing next Saturday, January 14, at Beerfish to celebrate the band’s new album, Vermont.

Plus Cody Barbo, founder of the San Diego-based start-up Industry chats with us about why he launched this LinkedIn-style site for people in the hospitality field and how he’s secured $2.5 million in fundraising.

We also talk Small Bites, including a great date night restaurant, the best things we ate this month, including a tip about cow tongue and chicken hearts. Trust us, they’re delicious.
