His Favorite Things:

”The Eastern Prospector at Craft and Commerce: lemon juice, bitters, honey, and bourbon—you’re welcome.” 675 W Beech Street, Little Italy

"Asaf Avidan is an incredible singer/songwriter, born in Israel, and sounds like a cross between Amy Winehouse and Bob Dylan, but in a good way.” asafavidanmusic.com

“Everyone loves colorful socks and Stance is certainly that, but they’re also really high quality as well.” $10–$18,

“The folks at Urt are local watermen that do a lot more than t-shirts, but they do t-shirts really well. Soft, comfortable, stylish... and they even print a tide chart on the inside, so you’ll never get caught unprepared.” Big Urt tee, $26,

“I was never really a jeans guy growing up because they were never all that comfortable. Then my wife bought me a pair that cost more than $30 and I was hooked.”


“No stringer and made with carbon fiber. Mannkine Surfboards are the lightest, strongest, most responsive board you’ll ever surf… just don’t ask me to explain the technology.” Price varies, incideblanks.com

“Whether you’re trying to get out of the doghouse or get to third base, flowers from ROOT 75 will do the trick.” 845 Orange Avenue, Coronado
