San Diego Happy Half Hour Podcast: Episode 40

OB Surf Lodge opens, Omar Passons talks “shopping with our values,” and the US Grant Hotel dishes on its upcoming Easter buffet



Published:

In today’s HHH, we’re coming at you from the newly renovated US Grant Hotel, where we talk about their upcoming Easter Champagne Brunch Buffet on April 16. Executive Chef Mark Kropczynski dishes on ingredients choices—like whether it’s fair game to serve rabbit on Easter.

In the day’s dining news, hosts Erin Chambers Smith and Troy Johnson along with producer Archana Ram talk about the debut of Bud’s Louisiana Express in the East Village and OB Surf Lodge’s waterfront location.

Joining us as our special guest is Omar Passons, a lawyer, community leader, candidate for San Diego County Supervisor, and self-proclaimed foodie. We talk wages in the craft beer industry, creating an “ethical scorecard” for local businesses, and how we can protect our city’s food systems.

He chimes in about the new legislation set for San Diego breweries and the food trucks that sometimes work with them.

And we end with recommendations for Two People/$50, including Spicy City, Barbusa, Salud, and Level2 at George’s at the Cove.
