Trends in San Diego this February
Philanthropy, whale watching, music, and more!
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 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
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.
Owners and operators of Noble Experiment, Neighborhood, Craft & Commerce, and Soda & Swine
We’d pay good money to see Arsalun Tafazoli bust a move.
Publisher of San Diego Magazine
Our editorial meetings would be much cooler if conducted on center stage.
Papa Doug Manchester
If only for the pure drama it would bring.
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.
