Today I want to let you in on a little secret called, “Golden Hill.” While most of you out there have heard of South Park by now, you may not know that that neighborhood plus the surrounding area all used to be known as “Golden Hill.” By now though, little pockets have began to identify themselves and Golden Hill has now become more established on it’s own. If walkability is important to you, than look no further. From the Starbucks on the corner of Broadway and 28th, which also hosts a Saturday Farmer’s Market, to your local coffee house, Krakatoa which sits right next door to one of San Diego’s landmarks, “Turf Club.” Or maybe strolling the park with views of downtown at Golden Hill Park and grabbing a slide of New York style pizza from Luigi’s is more your thing, you have all the options!

Another crafter brewery has opened up in North Park, this time on El Cajon Blvd., which in my opinion is the last major area to become a part of the new North Park. The hip North Park. The property values are going through the roof North Park! According to Uptown News, Barn Brewery, located at 2850 El Cajon Blvd., Suite 3, is now open and pouring their newly crated craft beers for thirsty locals. Barn Brewery is a project involving David Baker, a local real estate developer and craft beer enthusiast, who has teamed up with Chris Finch and Jennifer Alexander. Finch, who is the brewer over at Barn, is also the proprietor and brewer at Poorhouse Brewing Company located on 30th Street. Finch brings 20-plus years of brewing experience to the team’s new venture. “We wanted to share our love of craft beer and create a communal space that felt familiar yet entirely unique,” Alexander said. “Good neighbors, good friends and good beer in a welcoming environment. We had been looking for the right space, and the Barn just organically presented itself at the right time.” With a name like Barn Brewery, the vibe is just what you might expect. Exposed wood beam rafters stretch overhead while guests are invited to sit beside a cozy brick fireplace. In a city like San Diego, evenings where a fireplace might be

My son and I have been keeping our eye on the new developments at the corner of 30tb and Upas in North Park for over a year now. He, for the construction trucks constantly going in and out, and myself for the anticipation of new eateries going into an already stacked area of goodness. The community of North Park has more now to offer than ever before, and if you haven’t spent much time south of University, now is the time. The breakdown, provided by Sarah’s blog, will guide you through the many options. While the entire span of 30th Street from Alchemy in South Park to Jayne’s Gastropub in University Heights offers an unbelievable array of quality local choices, my little corner at 30th and Upas features an impressive mix of restaurants and bars within a few hundred yards of each other. Alexander’s on 30th, a classic modern Italian restaurant with a casual elegance and great salads, baked pastas, and dense pizzas for dinner. Their new Summer Sundays brunch-lunch menu includes fennel sausage hash with Italian roasted potatoes and $1 micheladas. The kids like drawing with crayons on the paper tablecloths, and we all enjoy sitting on the patio area outside.
