Trends in San Diego this February

Philanthropy, whale watching, music, and more!


Philanthropy By the #s

A shout-out to the cool things nonprofits are doing in our city


Students have pledged to live drug-free through San Diego-based nonprofit Natural High, now working with Cassadee Pope, first-place winner on NBC’s The Voice.


Meals donated to Feed America by local startup mogl.com via its Meal for a Meal program (one meal for every $20 users spend at restos).


Auto loans that United Way of San Diego County and the Leichtag Foundation will fund to peeps with not-so-fabulous credit. One of the first: Fred Martinez, a homeless veteran turned working student and dad. Way to go, Fred!

The Next Big Thing

Luxury Whale Watching

All aboard mega catamaran yachts, like the brand-new 60-foot Adventuress. You and 47 of your friends can join Captain Ken, who, in addition to steering the boat, happens to be a naturalist and advisor for the California Gray Whale Coalition. Cool factor: The boat has a 75-bottle wine locker. (That would be for one looong yacht ride.) adventuress.us



Sustaining our sushi habit

Chef Rob Ruiz made Harney Sushi San Diego’s first sushi restaurant to use 100 percent sustainable seafood. We hope other restos will follow suit, as all edible fish will supposedly be gonzo by the year 2048.
Read our interivew
with Ruiz and chime in on this hot topic.


Whole FoodsNow Open

Whole Foods at Flower Hill

The Del Mar store opens February 27, with a bar and restaurant. We can't wait to get our hands on the live sea urchins, the tri-milk samplers (three-cheese snack trays), Gigandes bean spreads, and flavored ricotta dips and tortas.
Plus: Watch for yummy changes in the La Jolla and Hillcrest stores.


Save the Music

The beloved Anthology supper club closed last month. We hear it would take about $5 million to buy and reopen. Here’s five people we think should do it.

The Jacobs Brothers
Hoteliers, philanthropists
With their deep pockets, we could see big name bookings like Tony Bennett and Wynton Marsalis selling out at top dollar, making more room for indie acts in between.

Consortium Holdings
Owners and operators of Noble Experiment, Neighborhood, Craft & Commerce, and Soda & Swine
We’d pay good money to see Arsalun Tafazoli bust a move.

Jim Fitzpatrick
Publisher of San Diego Magazine
Our editorial meetings would be much cooler if conducted on center stage.

Papa Doug Manchester
Hotelier, publisher
If only for the pure drama it would bring.

Miles McPherson
Pastor, The Rock Church
He could easily raise enough money, and a rousing Gospel brunch would be just the ticket to pack the house on Sundays.
