3 Neighborhood Tasting Tours Not to Miss This Week
Explore restaurants and breweries in Point Loma, Hillcrest, and along Morena Blvd
April 14: Taste of Hillcrest
As San Diegans, many of us live in a neighborhood that fits our own lifestyle (surfers by the beach, foodies in Little Italy, beer drinkers in North Park), and we generally don't venture too far outside of it. Neighborhood tasting tours are a great way to get to know a different part of the city and take in its food and drink offerings. This week, no fewer than three 'hoods are offering samples from local eateries and breweries. Lace up those walking shoes and start exploring!
