Welcome to Wednesday Wonders – San Diego. This week we will be visiting Southern California. Come with me on a virtual tour of my San Diego high, middle and low favorites! Taking notes is highly recommended so you know where to go when we can go!
High Wonders – San Diego
Starting with San Diego Highs! Altitude Sky Lounge located in the heart of downtown San Diego. Rising 22 stories above San Diego’s historic Gaslamp Quarter.
Altitude Sky Lounge is a rooftop bar with an amazing Happy Hour and an equally amazing view. Sunset Happy Hour Specials. $7 Premium Well Cocktails. $5 Domestic Draft Beers. 1/2 off Artisan Flatbread Monday through Friday 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm.
Looking for more than an amazing Sunset. The Altitude Sky Lounge can offer an elegantly catered experience or an intimate cocktail party. A highlight of things to do in San Diego with breathtaking nightlife destination. Custom menus, bottle service and panoramic views make this a must see place. The rooftop bar offers views of Coronado Island, Coronado Bridge, Point Loma and San Diego Harbor. Bring your camera and share your photos, I’m a little home sick at the moment. For views, menus and more check out their website at www.altitudeskylounge.com or click here.
Middle wonders – San Diego
What do Wonder Bread and one of the top craft breweries in San Diego have in common? Mission Brewery is located in the old Wonder Bread Factory. Located at 1441 L Street, otherwise known as the East Village.
It is the only location where all Mission Brewery beer is brewed, bottled, canned and kegged. Mission Brewery was originally established in 1913, but the brewery went out of business during prohibition. The brewery, bread factory, was later reestablished in 2007. It now has over 50 National and International awards proving their beer is here to stay. With so many amazing choices I highly recommen ordering their tasting flight. I discovered Dark Seas was my favorite, but the Blueberry Blonde was a contender.
Interested in a tour and a tasting? Mission Brewery offers tours and tastings Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at 2:00 pm and 4:00 pm. The tour includes 5 tasters with an amazing grain to glass experience. Tours fill up quickly so I recommend booking yours early. Let me know which beer was your favorite, or if you loved them all!
