Episode 53: mediUSA Reduction Kits with Christopher Miles
"I'm so excited to introduce today's guest. Christopher Miles is the senior manager for clinical services at many USA he's trained as an occupational therapist and a certified in both limping Dima and wound-care. He has been working with patients to assist in managing chronic Dima for over eighteen years and currently his role as managing a team of clinical educators for many USA and also completing clinical education to direct hospital systems national and International Conferences Hi Christopher. Welcome to the PODCAST. Thank you so much, Betty I'm excited club join your pot cow. I am so excited to talk to you about the reduction kit. So many of my patients in the clinic won a single garment that can do it. All is the reduction kit, their answer. You know I wish that there was a magic pill for lengthy Dima. I've been working Olympia for a long time and I think everyone spent hunting for that I. Wish I could say the reduction kit will do everything I'm not gonna I'm not GonNa say that it can but it certainly can do lot. It's a phenomenal bandaged replacement system. So. Can you tell us how the product came to be and what inspired it? Absolutely. I would love to and it's always a great story share. So the reduction Kit is part of the circuit product line The cirque aid product line has been around for over fifty years in a way it was inspired. It was actually invented by a individual who was trying to find a solution to help his wife who suffered from chronic limping Dima. Anti came up with this idea when he was at the San Diego Zoo he noticed that drafts are very tall yet for some reason, they never have swelling in they're very skinny legs. In the reason they don't have swelling in their legs is because their skin is inelastic it won't stretch. It doesn't have the ability to give to excess pressure or fluid. So there's no swelling or. So we've that. Concept he wanted to create a garment that didn't stretch because up to that point all compression garments had been made out of elastic that we're very stretchy. So key. The first inelastic product actually a very crude on product that he designed was actually out of leather belts. But over time he designed and created the circuit blind, which is the combination of an inelastic product with inner juxtapose spans to allow patients to automatically adjust and apply their compression.

Dodgers vs. Padres is the new high-stakes rivalry MLB needed

And we're coming down to the last 10 games of a wild wild year. That's why I shouldn't have to say so. I may put it another way. Like if you've ever been to a music festival, then you know how there are multiple bands to play at the same time, but on different stages, right? So the headliners get the realestate. The artists who were printed up in a smaller fought on the flyer our summer off to the side playing with smaller crowd, But if you've ever been to a music festival, you know that the smaller bands off to the side sometimes put on the better show. Sometimes you want to be off to the side and you want to see what's going on over there. Last night, I could make the argument the Dodgers and Padres put on a better show than the NFL doubleheader. When they were playing back to back on the main stage. If you have not been paying attention, then maybe you did not know last night was in fact. An unstoppable force meeting an immovable object. The unstoppable force Now are the red hot Slam Diego Padres. They welcomed the immovable object. The seven time defending NL West Champ L. A Dodgers to Petco Park.

Nelson lament matched him the entire way, though, halfway through that game, we were watching an old school pitchersduel. Their courage was barely getting the better off. And then things went from somewhat respectful and cordial to extremely chippy with a single swing in the bottom of the sixth.

Ari Welcome to the show. Are welcomed address. It's such a pleasure to have you here with us today. To be here. Thank you so much. So I believe you were actually in your late twenties. When you start at advance style I, think you started in two thousand eight. So you were not in still are not exactly a member of the you know the stylist set over sixty. that. You've taken as your muses. Can you tell us a little bit about the origin story of advance style and how you came to create this wonderful what started as a blog I always had an interesting clothing in that came from spending so much time with my grandmother bloom. Who is my best friend and like the most magical thing that I can imagine doing was going through her wardrobe and seeing her caftans, addresses and old hats and gloves in going through the bureau drawers. Seeing, the vintage rhinestone jewelry and I think because I was so connected to her she was my best friend that each one of these items kind of held a special power to me and. I learned early on that you can transform your mood with clothing. We we played a lot. You know in her closet at night where my grandfathers had closed schools. And you know dressing up was really a joy for me and a way to kind of a certain might individuality and my creativity because I always felt a bit different when I was younger than everyone else and so it was a way for me to like own the difference in owned Strangeness Weirdness Eccentricity and I used to flip through my grandmother scrapbooks in see images. Of Her and her family members dressed up in the nineteen thirties forties in Iowa in although they didn't have a lot of money everybody had szeged elegance or she's great has gloves and I was really struck by these images and we watch movies together in when I was really young I started to draw pictures of my grandmother and her friends and some times even imaginary older. Women with really wonderful style. So this was kind of the roots of the project and then I went away to college my grandma with wasn't feeling very well, and so I went back and forth from San Diego my hometown to Seattle where I'm going to college studying art history I would help my grandmother and when she passed away in two thousand and eight I really had. So much grieving to do I mean it's the biggest loss I'd ever experienced. But I also knew that I needed to do something that celebrated you know our relationship kind of continued this connection that had that was so deep and profound, and when I was really young, my grandmother told me that I should move to New York if I wanted to do something creative she had. Studied at College in late thirties, early forties and became a librarian, and she always talk to me about the style on the streets in the creativity. So when I moved to New York in two, thousand eight after my grandmother passed away I started to see all these incredible women on the streets of New York. City in wanted a way to connect with that kind of energy. Again in also deal with the loss of my grandmother. So I was about healing and then I realized that these images that I was taking have the power to shift other people's perspectives on getting older.
Why Pioneering Journalist Maria Hinojosa Put Herself in the Story
"Maria I loved the Book A. So, good I told you. I was texting with you I devoured it and I want to jump in in the middle. You tell a story about writing a television script for Walter Cronkite what was the assignment? It's a juicy story. So I love 'cause nobody's asked me about this one yet short story is that I am the first Latina hired NPR. And then very quickly I'm like. This feels weird and I go and work for a Latino public radio in Spanish and San Diego and I experienced. Deep my cheese more there, and so I end up working kind of miraculously back in New York at CBS News in the Radio Department. And, I was doing fill in work the summer, and then I was asked to stay on through the end of December to produce a segment from Walter cronkite they asked me to write his end of the year commentary. And so. I was terribly nervous as a Latina journalism in the mainstream and being the first I was terrified most of the time. I write this piece and I go in I, show it to my boss Norman and Norman Light Me Norman hired me. But he saw this piece he said, Walter Cronkite is not going to read this and I was like no, he's like because it sounds like you wrote it. And I can't remember if he said and you're a little bit of an angry Latina I, don't think we talked in that way but it was almost like as he didn't have to say it he was like because it sounds like you wrote. and. I said well. Let's take it down to the FISHBOWL and have one of the evening news writer writers, read it and see what they think. Something just said. Stand up for yourself. You really hard. You actually worked on this you talk to other journalists. This shit is good. and. You're angry in this piece because every American should be angry at what is happening in the United States of America in the year nineteen, eighty seven. and. So I said, let's onto the fishbowl the people who edit the evening news with Dan Rather. We walk toward the writers who did not know me and he's again this is good. Yeah he'll read it. Yeah change this one word. and My boss had to eat his words eat pro as it were and I was like damn and so the point of the story is that as journalists of color as journalists conscience. When we are the first or one of the few in many newsrooms. We have to battle for ourselves. The way we see the world as journalists is as valid as Walter cronkite sway of seeing the world or Katie couric or Dan Rather we're journalists just like them. There are so many pivot points on your journey from intern to staff producer to on air from Spanish English. Is there one moment that stands out to you as the moment where your career to turn and where you really started to set out on your journey as a journalist? Well, look to decide basically that you're going to walk away from a steady Gig because you want to become a correspondent, you want to try to become on air that was pretty risky move and I feel like I did that in one of those moments where I was like you just have to do this. Like there are no Latinas. There are no Latina voices out there. And you have done radio, you have a voice, you know how to use it Noah. So that was a turning point. I think when CNN recruited me, that was another moment. It was very scary because I had never done television much less live television. But to answer your question, I feel like it really like. Like really came to fruition once I moved into doing now on PBS, which was long form investigative close to sixty minutes in terms of its style and production and deep investigative, and that led me to then doing documentaries and led to the front line which happened at the same time that I created my own company football media and I just WANNA shout out. The book. News for all the people which is was written by Juan Gonzalez and Joe Tories once I read that book I was like, okay. All of this suffering of being a journalist, a Latina you know woman of Color Immigrant. All of this is there is a reason why and it is because you have a responsibility to be part of this long arc. Of Responsible Journalism in the United States. You right I had heard rumblings at NPR some folks that I got too close to stories. I know all about you and your agenda one of my editors a nice middle aged white guy said to me agenda I said, what are you talking about? Maria come on you and you're Latino agenda. How did you respond in that moment? I said so does that mean that you've got a white guys agenda and he was like, no, it's not the same thing and I was like the same thing I'm able to tell you those moments because they were few and far between when I was just like ski is. Key you know like the same in Mexico is style plateau. SAMANCOR will plateau no one mass when I would just like suddenly rip something out and just be like that. But a lot of the times as you know, you're mostly just like dodging dodging you're doing a we've you're doing another we've and then sometimes you're just like a skin nope Wilma's I'm GonNa answer back. I hope that a lot of journalists read this book journalists because. You do have to be incredibly strong willed, and I would hope that they understand that this is not a job it is in fact, a mission that we're lucky enough to love. We need them.
Padres take two wins against Giants in doubleheader
"What an afternoon on. Sunday. For the padres they sweep a doubleheader from the giants and extend their winning streak to seven consecutive games. The padres will finish twenty twenty over five hundred for the first time. Since twenty ten s San, Diego moved to thirty one and seventeen with a couple of very impressive wins on Sunday afternoon six nothing in game one by my cleven jer three, one in game two behind some clutch hitting three relievers. Behind Garrett Richards and the padres absolutely rolling into their huge series this upcoming week against the La Dodgers. This is the wrap up show with John for and Jim. Russell. If you're not following us on social media, please do that at twitter at John Shaffer at Jim Russell.

Yeah. A couple days off may have actually helped team to be honest with you and they got to sweep today. Kinda like. Easy I to me it did it to me. It felt like there's no doubt in my mind that not only the Padres, the better team, but they're going to win these games. They're gonNA to find a way to win in the second game there, and then the first game I tweet this out after the third inning, I'll like this feels like clovinger I'm just GonNa go seven complete this game type outing for him and which he did he went seven. Felt Kinda effortless almost when you look at the box score complete game seven strikeouts only one walk only giving up two hits like that's the Mike Levin show that this team traded for and who they hope they get in the postseason is a guy that's going to give you seven innings going to not allow any runs couple couple hits given up. strikeout seven plus only walk one it was it was his best as a padre so far and couldn't have come at a better time. And then game to like it was you know giant scored I there but to me I was like, all right. You know I felt that they were gonNA come back and win that game somehow, and it wasn't pretty will myers at a home run. But other than that the other ones they scored wasn't pretty how they did it but still they got the job done and their bullpen. John, this is a strength of the team. Now it's incredible because it's been nine days. So the first twenty, three games of the year, the padres bullpen was six point four, eight, the last twenty, three games coming into today two, point, seven five and the bullpen today two and two third innings of one hit no run baseball Tim Hills now three. Now he was the winning pitcher in game two drew pomeranz not allowed to run JIM this year and fifteen scoreless innings and Trevor Rosenthal was able to work around two out error committed by Fernando Totti's junior. To Work School. seventh-inning for his tenth save and third with the chargers. If there's one thing we saw over the course of these two games and maybe over the seven game winning streak is that Fernando Totti's junior is a human. You know he wasn't GonNa hit three fifty all year. He wasn't GonNa hit thirty five home runs and sixty games you know he For the first time, maybe as a professional at the big league level actually slumping, he's one for fifteen. Now, in his last five games, the Patriots won all of those games. So that's the good news.
Giants, Padres to play DH after false positive
"Giants and Padres were going to play a double header today as the words came out about midnight last night. That the test that had looked like a positive test on Friday night was perhaps false positive, and the Giants had a couple of negative tests after that, and MLB and the Giants and everyone else got together and decided that it's safe enough. To play a double header today of the Giants and the San Diego Padres.

And it's up on a mountain above Pala Mesa resort and it's a small little winery it but it's just really cool because their view is just gorgeous. You can sit on the patio. have some wine taken the view and if you WanNa see the whole week in there you can actually rent out. The House has a swimming pool in summertime.

I wanted to just move in there. We also have a tap room. Mm That is prohibition Berry so the actual brewery is in Vista but they did open at taproom in Fabric Series To to get prohibition and Beers there and that is right on main street.

They do tap takeovers every other Friday and they they hope they have a ton of local beers and wines available as well. It's just a cool. Who'll little place it's it's in the original firehouse?

It's barbecue in beer recently. And they are going to local lines. It's okay There were some other wineries that you had told me about before. Yes two thirds the vineyard one to four which is really awesome at Christmas mistimed. They open up for. I WANNA see about a month and a half or so. They still Christmas trees. And then you can also go. They do bonfires every night. We'll have live music. Dick you can have glasses of wine will have food trucks. So it's really kind of an event to get your Christmas tree and the place is just like so adorable. They saw you saying vineyard. One twenty four is only open for those six weeks or whatever so generally asked only open for six weeks. I did notice that they do other events as well. I just started falling among these book to find out when they when they're going to open the winery but when it is open. It's so much fun to go but Christmas time is really fun. My husband and I always go at least a couple times a year. We get bottled pulled up. Hang out by the The bonfire with our friends. We have Myrtle creek. We have the toasted oak. We Have Beach House and then we have FARC winery in which is actually probably the largest winery in fallback and they are in distribution. So you can actually buy their widens locally at places like Albertson's and then we also have constitutionists awesomeness which is owned by a lovely couple making Susan and they open up their home for their winery. You join the wine club you can go up there. It's actually up above up fallbrook in kind of like the Rocky Mountain area. So it's really rural gorgeous. Home that overlooks this big canyon with their vineyards and their wine China's great to about a bar or any other bars that you still there if you're into dive bars. We have the best device are it's called the red eye and it. It is religious up to its name. I think every time I've been there we have stayed in closes in with. Oh Gosh has has got of your own to you. But it's just you're straight up. They don't take credit cards. You ought to have cash law of locals hang out there. There's a lot of retired tired marines and military the hang out there. They have really good bands on the weekend denouncing. Dj Kariuki all the things that dive barbed should have. Oh Okay Salon hiking. I imagined you know this is pretty rural. It's definitely not by the ocean. I'm you know how long it takes you to the ocean about a half hour but our okay. I think you're an avid hiker imagined with a hiking nagazine that you might take a little bit So what do you think about the hiking places to go so in my husband and I moved from Ocean side we were. We were hikers in surfers. And we live by the beach so that we can start off and it was always my dream to move to Falkirk since there's little kid 'cause I just love Rothfield but what really pushed over the edge to move. There was the Santa Margarita River trail. which is if you do the whole trail? You've been actually win eleven mile loop and it runs along the Santa Margarita River which is a role river it flows year round. It is obsolete beautiful all your hiking through three hundred year old oak canopies. There are deer down. There are beavers in the river. There are a bunch of endangered fish. There are a blue herons. There are tons of Hawks in all kinds of birds. There's a severe SUV. You're obviously but I'm getting out of your into wildlife. There's a ton of a ton of wildlife down others hotel in bobcats mountain lions. It's just stunning. So so we would drive from oceanside once once once a week ish and we would hike the river and so my husband being a really big server said if I could find a house that we can walk to you that we could buy three walk to the trails that he would consider it so I did and we bought it and we moved to fallbrook. It's been about ten years now dot trail At least once a week it's dog friendliest. You can bring your dogs in the summertime. It's really nice because he bought the water in the trees as a little bit cooler. We also have Mountain which is it's a very. It's a pretty short hike. The whole loop is only about five miles but you're going up about twelve hundred feet in violent hap- since really steep so it's a great hike for training so if you WANNA get in shape that's a really good one to do. Once a week. We have a couple preserves ars that are managed by fabric land conservancy and there are a little bit shorter. Hikes are also equally beautiful with lots of oak trees and Sycamore Trees. And they're those preserved our great for kids so you can do short little milder and get out into nature and still experience at all. All the trails are dog friendly. uh-huh in fallbrook on a leash. They're just all stunning. They're all beautiful. Where would you start if I wanted to come out and go on that trail by the river where I start? How do I get there so to get to the childhood for the Santa Margarita River you would take deludes road which is right off of mission road and you're going to head north and there's GonNa be a wine you're gonNA stay to the right and that just takes you right to the dry so it's probably only never actually gauged it? How how far town? But it's it's it's not that far I would say maybe two miles out of town to get to the the chill had and are there signs and directions could easy to find. It's easy to find. There's nobody there no signs but if you just google it it's easy you can or you could probably they just put it right into your navigation. It'll take you there. It's a real popular trail There's so many wonderful things I mean. It sounds like just a ton of history. I mean Avocados data. Of course. That's fun in those festivals and some little quaint shops. Are there little antique shops. Or something down to. Yeah Faubourg downtown. There's quite a few the anti shops that have really fun. Unique a things for sale in them a lot of the residents a lot of people that moved to fall volver artists because artists. One that that rule fueling the quietness and they end up opening shops downtown to be able to eh display their superfund lines so there there's there's all kinds of antique shops in the community is centered around artists to you like why earlier we have the our wine bite. That's the walk. We have lots of little art studios downtown onto you where you can see. Local People's paintings and different kinds of exhibitions in that kind of thing. So I can't wait to explore Default work a few times ever. It's been a long time so this is really exciting. So yeah and the Chamber of Commerce has really good out helping visitors visitor down there too so you can only stop in the chamber. It's Ri- on Main Street She's amazing she. She knows everything there is to know about fabric and she loves it. Probably more than I do Possible yeah she's great so before we end this podcast. I need to point out that there's been one big change group town. Coffee Coffee has new ownership and now it's called coffee. corks and cuisine. Of course this only happened a few days after we recorded this episode assode but it does remind me to tell you about the show notes that are posted on things to do in San Diego Dot. US I take the time to link every place that we talk about to the web page or to some information so that you can easily find the hours and location etc and they actually do this for myself as well because a lot of times. I'm so inspired by these guests that I'm going to these locations and I sometimes forget all the places that were mentioned so I look up the show notes and try and figure out where I want to go based on the show notes. If you have a particular part of town or part of the city in San Diego County that you want to know more about feel free to drop me a line or if you've enjoyed the podcast look to know about that..

"Welcome to things to do in San Diego. I'm your host Suri Manelli and today I'm really excited about fallbrook and our guest is Jamie purring. Tin The owner of hide off magazine and hike it off clothing. She's an avid hiker and she told us about some of the most amazing places to hike the Santa Margarita River which is incredibly beautiful and incredibly diverse verse with a three hundred year old canopy so whereas fallbrook in relation to San Diego. It's the north most city in San Diego. cownie money on the fifteen before you hit temecula and it's on the backside of oceanside so it's not exactly coastal but it's not east county either and and what's really fascinating about fallbrook is it's got several wineries. It's really small friendly town. A lot of artists is there. So you're gonNA find a lot of those little tiny shops galleries teacups antics. Things like that There's a little bit of history there. There used to be a train. There's no longer train but they're used to train. The goes went through there in the eighteen hundreds and so there's a lot of history about that and there's also a gem and the mineral museum which is really fascinating. There's some other unique things but we'll wait to let Jamie tell us about that in the interview one more thing to know about the show. Is that neither my guest nor I get compensated in any way for any of the places that we talk about on the podcast. And that's so important to me because I want it to remain authentic as if you were talking to a friend. Who's in that town and they're telling you all the really cool places to go? The the way I do get compensated is if you go to things to do in San Diego Dot. US You can find a link for Patriot on. And I always appreciate it when people send me need those Patriot donations that helps inspire me to keep going with the show and I might on occasion also put some affiliate links in the show notes. But just know anytime I do that. Not only are they clearly labeled but I'm only putting in affiliate links that I think are appropriate and that would help you like if it was for booking hotels or concert tickets or or whatnot anyway. My purpose for the show is for you to have the best day ever in in San Diego and so here we go with Jamie talking about fallbrook. What's tall famous for farmers for Avocado cottage? So we're actually known as the avocado capital of the world. I don't know how true that is but I love to think that it is true So we have lots of farms to very rural community. Lots of Avocados. And we're getting a lot of grape growing as well for wine grapes so it's a pretty rural part of the county I and it's really beautiful. and the weather's just awesome involve break. There's a few festivals what what are the festivals that they're known for them while our biggest festival that were known for Awards Avocado Festival and that takes place every year. In April we have about one hundred twenty thousand people that come out for the day and it's it's just a lot of fun. There's a log avocado stuff so there's guacamole contest. There's dressing avocado contest. There's you can buy all kinds of avocado type hype things whether they're edible. Avocado Shakes Fried Avocados or things made out of avocado itself. So Avocado would bulls all that. So it's really just away from town to get together and invite hundred twenty thousand of our closest friends and celebrate avocado everything that we can use them for and and then there's another. I think you mentioned that there was also a second kind of festival there. Third with what other festivals are there similar to our local festivals. We have a what is called wine in a bite and that is where local businesses in the downtown area pair up with restaurants and wineries and it's a walking type festival. Will you walk from business to business where you'll get a little piece of food and it's paired with wine from a local winery. The chamnber handles that also just launched a new one that is populism bruce so seem similar concept instead of wine in food it's beer and in different various forms of potatoes. So let's talk a little little bit more to give our listeners an idea of whether or not they want to come to fallbrook to stay or just make it a day trip. So can you tell people about outlined the transportation safety and then we'll go into where they would stay since fall workers rule those not the a lot of public transportation and the downtown area is very walkable so you can walk in shop. All the shops down there and get to quite a few of the restaurants but as far as accommodations. I always recommend when I have friends visiting. If they're not staying with me to look at AIRBNB so there's a ton of really cute little airbnb that are available. While some are on avocado farms. Some are on ranches. So you're really looking for a place to get away. That's rule and kind of quiet and slow definitely definitely check out Work if they wanted to go downtown. How far would it take Helen's it take you to get to downtown from Fallbrook Dunton Gun Ted Kennedy. It's about well with a traffic so without traffic. It's about forty five minutes with traffic Republican. We got an hour and a half. Yeah it's way up there. I mean it's Kinda surprising that it still San Diego County yet and we don't have traffic in Faubourg so you can escape the traffic and come forward. There's traffic it might be because there's like a flock of wild peacocks. Crossing the road or something. They have to wait for but That's about it. And then what else is fall were close to. I know it's close to Basel. which is another rural town? Yeah so farmers really close the bonds will it's close to the backside of oceanside and it's also close to Temecula so fabric is a good place to come and stay at your planning on Wayne Teaching as well as you can kind of experience both both the rural aspect of fallbrook and then wine tasting getting into Macula. Let's start with the museums. There's the gem and Mineral Society that event to with the kids. Yeah the Gem Mineral Society is really fun. If you're into you know crystals or any kind of rocks it's really great for kids So you can go in there and learn a lot about that sort of thing but they also have a glow on the dark room so there's minerals that glow in the dark so it's really fun to kind of go check that out and see them under black light in an experience that definitely a good kids place my kids just they think they spent like an hour in their shopping at things. Yeah Great Place and the General Society also hosts their own little festivals. A couple times a year as well which you can get that information on our website and it's waving kinda go buy buy stuff from that and people come with all their different rocks walks in minerals and gems is your second museum there or is there something else that was interesting. Wasn't there something. We have the historical society the former Kostoric society is basically geared geared toward the history of Albert put fabric was a big train depot. Back in the day so so it was built that attribute depots bill eighteen eighty two Basically was a stop on the way from San Diego. That train shot continued tenure up the Santa Margarita River which is river valley that we have here in fallbrook and out into Temecula the tracks themselves have been washed out a couple of times and and repaired and so because of that because of the train coming through here is really a big reason of why Farkas even here it has to do with a lot the history. The train was finally closed in nineteen eighty one and the train depot itself was torn down. That's where our sheriff station is now but the Warehouse House next to the Sheriff's Station is art center. And that is one of the original buildings. Supposedly the historical society talks all about that. There's historical artifacts in Nair with train. Stop and tons of photos is just a really neat place to go. If you're a trained buff the historical society also has installed An old caboose right in on Main Street in downtown and so it's really cool with your kids will not I love it. I've taken my picture in front of a million sometimes but It's just a fun little quirky thing just like how Faubourg is you know funding quirky but eventually that is going to be the future railroad wrote Heritage Park. So that's part of it in the works so I want to point out the irony. So it's a real root tumble. You cannot get there by train not anymore. Ah Make sure that that I can totally see somebody. Misunderstanding us in like trying to figure out how to get the train. Yeah I know so. The train was shut down in one thousand nine hundred eighty in. What was the last train to come through fall break okay? Although there is a legend that you can still hear the train's Horn in town And have you heard it. I have not okay enough to downtown to Europe. There's a lot of locals that's where that that they can still hear it. That's interesting Hebrew coffee places because it seems like some of these rural towns have like a more of those mom and POPs so we have two that are privately owned. They're both equally adorable in equally. Have great copy Brick town is right on main street. And it's just great to go. There's Cubal charity consider up front. It's really cozy inside and it's actually connected to a wine bar now so it's in the morning and get your copy in the evening Lots lots of local wine and then we also have former coffee company which is just off main street and it's really cute little cottage and it just feels when you walk. It just feels like a cute little coffee place in there will really cozy okay. Let's talk about restaurants. There's not too many but I know that you've got if you favorites. She said yard so I have two of my favorites and their pull equally awesome. So I'm not going to see which one is my favorite but once you stop in west West and small town They're both family owned and the food is incredible. Small town of specially focuses a lot on local goal food. I know that's been popular for a long time. But they really live by so they have these mushroom tacos that are unseen and I went in a couple weeks. They didn't have them only because they couldn't get the mushrooms locally so they didn't just go buy them from somewhere else in the tacos It forced me to try something else which was great because everything. There's just amazingly good and the owners of the type that you walk in. And they give you cog in there. Thank you for coming back. So it's it's just an awesome locally to go eat beat my husband. I usually go there on Friday night. Date night they do serve local wines and local beers and they do some events as well so I know they're doing a really Nice Valentine's Day dinner that's a four five course. Wine paired dinner dot com stuff and then.

"Sharing mentally and today I'm with Angelique Ingram. Angelique is a life coach. And she's writing her first book so thanks Angelique. Thank you for having me anything else you WANNA.

Yeah and I love slaughter beach and so for those who've never been to San Diego or even slow on a beach let's give our audience a description of what they could expect Spector how they would feel being here. What what this place is about? Yes Lana beach is a great beach community. It's very small very intimate and facing a very very safe. You know there's never any real issues that go on in this in this community. It's a great spot for people who just want to relax kick-back maybe enjoy some music. A Nice dinner do some shopping go down the beach read a book. You know it's very it's a great Turestski spot as a lot of our terrorist. Come out here. People who know of it a lot of people know Hoya Coronado and places like that. The Salang impeach doesn't really get a whole lot of sure as them but I mean I wouldn't say that Solana beach is very quiet. It is It's very walkable bowl. You could easily take the train and pretty much walked the whole downtown. And it's really. I think better known for like the design district rights are upscale artsy. I would say I think that there's really out sense of family here in Homey Louis. Oh that's what we love about it here. It's not like a very large and it's got a lot of you know big buildings with lots of office space and that's not what you really find a long beach is very lucky. In that sense for transportation I would always. I would take the train if if you don't have a car rider it would. It'd be pretty easy to do that. Very easy from downtown San Diego No from ocean side the Northern County. And then if you WANNA stay here it's probably a little bit expensive just because it is a upscale beach community but you said that there's a few places that your friends have said that you really like yeah there's tons of AIRBNB which are great but there is a couple of hotels and that we have here we have the Marriott courtyard which which is just recently been renovated And a lot of our friends like to stay there they love it. They're never have any issues and the Holiday Inn as well which is a smaller Holiday Inn. But it's a lovely little hotel that is also an option and we mentioned that shopping is really really big hero. Yeah we love our C.. Dress designed district. Yes this one. I mean it's just one St. It's not like it's gigantic. Although there you said that there was a shop that you wanted to shout out because it's like getting the street yes it's down Towards the five more and it's an Islamic Beach Plaza shopping center there's a marshalls and places like that Chimera but there's a little bit take their that used to be on stage dressed trespass they've moved recently and it's called wax and whimsy and it's a great spot to like a gift to others clothing in there there's candles and things like like that is just a level spot there and I always like to give a shout out to them because they don't get noticed. Yeah Yeah so then. Speaking of Cedras were some of the stores that you like personally. Though some of the stars that I like front. Maples is a great little shop very audible audible clothing retail for women and for children. She's been there for a long time. I was named grandmother. I believe shoes as well.

"diego" Discussed on Things To Do In San Diego Podcast
"It's a pretty a fun place and they've got you know Kinda like garage door type things that go up so it feels a little bit open air. I love that. That's a really big San Diego County thing especially in the North North County Carlsbad and it was like the open this garage door. And there's like a bar on either side of that garage door and that's exactly how bolt is set up and then bottled craft if you want to taste a lot of different beers from different places. That's a fun spot to go because you can. Just they've got a bunch on on top then you can even And then they have different bottles goals and a lot of them local and different. Just different things you can taste. I really like going there. Because they have different hard Kombucha's so which is fine for me since I'm gluten intolerant. So let's talk about some restaurants. What are your favorite things around here? Well obviously being a little Italy Italian given so I think we'll get there in a minute and I'll kind of give you just some some standard other other options and then we'll we'll make Italian it's on category. Have a bad sounds good Melina Hall Great Place for family. Four if you WANNA watch a game. They've got really big. TV's has been always loves that and they also shuffleboard inside and they have a really very menu they do have pizza on the menu which is Great Eight But they have awesome salads appetizers. Good cocktails beer. It's A. They have tons of seating there always decorate really cool for the holidays too so Nolita the halls kind of like a go to for for my husband and our friends so some other options would be if you went to see more of a date night. Wouldn't say it's a place for kids is cloak and pedal has it's like Sushi Asian fusion definitely higher end. I would say has almost a New York vibe to it. So it's unexpected. They've got this incredible cherry tree in the middle of it. Like the whole place is a work of art and good cocktails good Sushi and different types of appetizer. So definitely If you're into if you're coming coming from east coast and you like later night or you want that kind of herb. Very urban vibe I would say pedals. A great option crack. Shack is an awesome awesome family friendly very casual place. They've also got outside games and things like that but that's very it's mostly chicken there. I've Gotten I. I don't only chicken but I've had different salads there and they're they've always been really great and I think it was started by somebody who was Richard blaze that sounds rights and they've got a crack check that just opened in the last year or two Peninsula Nita's and I went to and I loved it. I was really impressed with it yet. It's kind of a fun atmosphere. It's like I like how they have all the games and it just feels like you can really hang out there. Definitely feel definitely has a very nice viper hanging out. It's awesome for kids and if you go by there on a Thursday or Friday night there's just like tons of kids there and it seems like in a great place to have her family's one insider tip that at least two on behalf of my husband that he tells everyone who third thinking of going to crack check. He says get on their instagram account. And if you see something you think looks good. Just show it to the person WHO's working and say I want that because he says the menu the way it's display doesn't do the food justice so look at what you want on their instagram. And tell the the person who's taking your order. That's what you want on on their instagram. Any other restaurants. I would say if you want Brunch Queenstown. Public House is a great option. They also have a great happy hour. And if you haven't had any food intolerances or ah I wouldn't say necessarily picky eaters but people maybe you're on a special diet or something cafe. Gratitude is super accommodating and has lots of gluten friendly options majority of the items on our menu are Vegan if not all of them so just a great place and they're all they always ask at the beginning. Just anyone have any food intolerances or allergies. And they're careful to. I was really surprised I finally went to. I had heard about this place for years and finally went down there. I was surprised how huge it was too. Yeah and just. There's this fun or lateness about it. It's interesting place. It is and the food was really good. I've never had a bad meal there. So I'm like smoothies and desserts that are all like you know gluten free and all sorts of thing and even my parents who like I said I'm born and raised in the Midwest and so my parents have more of a mid West Palette for sure and they've been very pleasantly surprised every time I've taken them there even though some of the stuff on the menu might sound a little very California. They've all they've always loved it what they've had they're so all right so you said that while we are in little Italy's probably should talk about Italian. Yes and I suppose I'll start with my very favorite place that I'm partial to is. Civic is my very favorite spot i Emma Talian and so I don't know I appreciate that a lot of their way SAF is also Italian talion One time I went there and our waiter was from the same region that my family's from and it was cool. Sean you picture so it was really great experience. The home make their their pasta. They have gluten free options. There never had bill. They're either an. It's an awesome experience. If you want a little more it it's not a I wouldn't call it a casual spot but it has amore casual by than some of the other restaurants in the area if you want more kind of an upscale vibe Benko does a great option. I've gone to been Koto three or four times and I have to say it's one of my favorite Italian place. I was knocked over my how good it was really good the homemade pasta and just they just do things a little differently Definitely definitely the chef is from Milan. I believe yeah. Yeah which makes sense that it has that feel because the different If you've ever been to Italy I would say Civil has more of like a Florentin vibe and Ben Koto would definitely be Milan like the fashion capital. And everything's a little more fancy there and for is a little more it just I wouldn't call it gritties out the right word but like home cooking homeys. I've been to Italy. We went for our honeymoon and I can tell a difference between like you you go to Italy. It's like just the food tastes different somehow. And that's when I went to Bunko. That was what was blowing my mind going. Wow this really reminds me of Italy yes breath totally for so. I can't wait to try US CIPPICO. Nineteen twenty eight. I've got to try that. Maybe even today yeah all right so we can get into new bars or yeah I guess Pars our next all right so I will give you a range of options here. So one of favourite. They don't know if you'd find it easily. Online is false idol. It's a speakeasy style. But if you've ever been speakeasy sale bar it's you know it's it's more exclusive like you gotTa tell there's no sign for it however once you get in the field is not the same as any other speakeasy I've ever been to it has They take like they have a lot of runs and they have a very tropical. Feel at almost feels like you're in rainforest cafe and they have like a waterfall back in there. But it's in the back of craft and Commerce homer which is another great Barr option which is has a very woodsy field offices if your grandfather's home or something and then you you know if you mentioned to the hostess that you WanNa go back to fall silo. They'll take your name if they of space or whatever and when you go back and just like a totally different world the way you just came from which is a really interesting missing experience. So I think that's what I'm loving about seeing all these speakeasy come you know. Come to town. There's several of them. We've been to two of them. I I think that that's the cool thing about them is that they're hidden. And so you have to like be in the know in order to go and usually something. That's out in front and then to get into the speakeasy or in Carlsbad. There's one where you have to knock on the door a certain knack and you have to have a certain passer. I look through and right so so there you go. You're in the know. Now all you gotTa do is there's there's uh-huh a hosted stand right when you walk in to craft in commerce and you can let them know that you'd like to go to false idols. So I imagine easier earlier is easier to get into probably so now probably so. I've been several times. I just can't quite remember what you know what time it was a Water Front Grille waterfront bar and grill It's I think it's Burn San Diego. I think it was I had done some research before we got on this podcast and it said Nineteen thirty three institution that outlasted the waterfront but it still draws crowd coats and they're yeah draw draws huge crowds and personally. I'm always quite surprised by the large crowds at draws. Because I mean the drinks are just fine. It's like what you'd get it a wedding but it is a sight to see that. It's like the Super Bowl bar that everyone still goes to so If you're if you want that or you just don't really you just want to vodka soda or a beer great place to go great especially for happy hour. Yeah play fund music usually like Friday night. It's a lot of throwbacks and things like that. So it's a win. One thing I want to mention is Margaritas. Your San Diego. Maybe have a taste for Mexican food. King and Queen Cantina is an awesome spot for good Mexican awesome. Happy Hour is good. Margarita's that's go to and then another place as that I might mention. It's not necessarily bars but maybe a great way to kind of end and evening out would be stern. Hey Desserts now that is really famous here. It is extraordinary. Very it's almost like there's no words for it because it's six two ordinary it's it's all there in the name it is extraordinary desert however was not in the name of that they also have breakfast lunch and dinner menu which are also amazing but absolutely unbelievable desserts. Yes gluten free options yes vegan options. Yes on the pricier end but trust me. It's it's extraordinary. You should stop there if you're coming to San Diego. You're going to be a little Italy checkout extraordinary desert. Okay so is there any other desert places that you'd recommend yes. Yeah so if you went in July auto I would check out It's called Boboy and they actually have two locations now one of them being in the Piazza and it's in what's called a little Italy Food Hall which I'll just take a moment to mention is a great place to check out especially if you're traveling traveling with a large group that everybody can get what they want and then you can all kind of bring reconveyance it together either outside or inside great place to go And Bobby is in there. They have one location. That's in there with a slightly limited menu and they have another location on Kettner. which each has their you know their full menu do a lot of seasonal flavors of July? And it's amazing. They was originated in the Hoya and now they've just opened these two additional locations and it's awesome they have my husband's favorite is Mediterraneo. And I liked that one but I. I really love to do the Vegan dark chocolate and and they're pursues awesome so definitely check it out if your energy Lada And then Papa Lecco is another place that has got Giuliano and coffee really fun but it reminds me a lot of Italy. Italy where you walk in and you know you see like the cases with like sandwiches and pastries and things. It feels very much like we were blown away. We've only been to a handful of places in all of little Italy. And Papa was one of the first. We had a station here for our anniversary. And so we went in there and we had breakfast and the breakfast was phenomenal. Not they did such a great job. Yep and then my husband loves Italian coffee. Of course but the other thing they're croissants. Oh Gosh there almond filled croissant is like one of the the things that I could just die for the they have a whole range of patients. It really has very much like you feel when you're exactly how it goes some place to check out as well and that's right in the heart of everything as well. I think it's Cedar Street. And then I know we've Kinda taught music but just to recap seems like a lot of the bars at night have a little bit of music. Rights go very far not many silent bars. Yup Italy. You certainly don't need to go far to find find great music and the other thing. Is that waterfront park or write down near the harbour to within walking distance should there tend to be a lot of music festivals. So if you're into that Kinda anything I know there's one coming up we're recording this November. There's one coming up relatively soon. That's kind of more like a reggae type music. So if you're into music festivals check out which ones might becoming to the little Italy area in could spend you know three or four days hanging around here. Well I love Italy and thank you so much for all your help. I'm really excited to explore more more of little Italy. I thought I knew a lot and now realizing how many places I've missed so please subscribe and if you go things to do in San Diego Dot.

"diego" Discussed on Things To Do In San Diego Podcast
"Thanks for joining us. This is Sherry Bonelli. I'm your host and this is things to do in San Diego and today with my guest and Marie Rose Thank you Marie. Thanks for having me and tell me a little bit about yourself. I'm a brand strategist. So help coaches consultants and experts. who want to grow their businesses specifically online? I help them to clarify their message. and to grow online in a way that's aligned with author vision and feels really good to them and serves their audience. So have you today because I know you work in little Italy. Although at the moment you're still love living in we're in east village village but my husband and I we've been frequent fans of the APP zillow for about three years. Now just trying to find the right place at the right time. It's you know it's that's likely going to be happening sooner than later. So what is it that you like about little Italy that you would wanna live here I really we love just the energy of the area specifically I like it's generally really clean on your super close to the bay so I love that it has the relax San San Diego Vibes still but it is still very high energy and it's not. There are a lot of tourists that come to the little Italy area eh but it's not like a touristy area if that makes sense it's there's still a lot of people who live right around here and so you almost don't know who's a local and who's a tourist wrist my husband. I joked that sometimes you could tell the tourists by what they're wearing or if they're like looking at him out trying to point things but it's not a tourist area per se so how wiz transportation here. What would you recommend people? They're going to Come here on vacation. They're gonNA come here on vacation if they want to. Stay specifically like downtown town. I would say. Don't you run A car. It's one very very close to the airport. That's also one of my favorite things about living downtown. It's ten minutes less than go to the airport. So you could easily get an uber or lift for less than probably less than ten dollars here and then if you plan to hang around downtown town a great option is just to rideshare wherever he planned to go or if you're open to scooters with their scooters maybe there's tons of scooter scooters and they've done they've really tried to contain them as well so they're not like Lang- everywhere they have scooter parking spots now and Honestly won't let you close out unless you park in one of those scooter parking parking spots and then And so you're also not at risk O of like if you're on the sidewalk you're not gonna get hit necessarily hit by scooters. I mean no guarantees. But they've widened the lanes here downtown to accommodate for more people riding scooters. So how do they charge for the scooters. 'cause I haven't quite done it yet and I wasn't quite sure you know. I think it's an APP that you get on your phone. So there is some of the popular ones are like bird and line and then now lift and I think Uber. There's there's four five six different kinds hindes so you download the APP of your choice and then you put your credit card information and just like you would with getting an uber lift right and then you pay based on the distance that you're going however we have noticed recently that we think they may be charging flat rates. I Pacific distances. But we haven't really looked so that. How much would that be if you're going downtown to little Italy so little? Italy is technically considered downtown. Bite if you're going to like we're all the tall buildings are I guess You know I don't know more like core Columbia area to three dollars. Oh it's the most the most expensive ivory paid from my place to little Italy. which is maybe it's like a mile is five dollars okay? And that's I think they were testing out some of those slap fees at the time so and so then. The train is right here to right the coaster. The coasters right here so you can. It's really easy to get up to North County. I just took the coaster actually for the first time I've been here for years. Moved here from the Midwest by been here for years and That was the first time I took. The coach was last weekend and it was so easy I mean from here to Sauna. Beach was less than a half an hour and we honestly were like. Oh we're here already so easy and a great ride and fun because you're able to see the ocean for a lot of in. It's Nice so if you're driving driving down from somewhere else how was parking here. Parking can be rough. And maybe you even want to speak to this little bit because you just found parking. I mean a lot of times. I'm either ridesharing or get dropped off at the office or walking. I have to say it's it's usually difficult. I've been to little Italy about three or four times in the last month and a half and every time I'm like oh no I've got to try and find parking. There are parking lots and I know that you had said that if you go downtown more that there's a lot bigger lots and is your to find the parking garage. Take those scooter or something over here right right so you almost are better off just finding a great parking surrounding area. That's you know less than a mile out and then just either getting a scooter or having nice walk through the the bright side is it's a great place to walk around. Yes so lots to see and I will say that to find street parking. I just experimented with this yesterday morning. Might a friend for coffee at seven. Forty five a M right here. Aaron literally like the Center right in front of the Piazza which will talk about it. I mean I'm sure and there was some street parking like to our parking so in the morning not so bad once it gets to be about ten eleven. Am All the way into the evening. Pretty tough how about hotels or our places to stay. What would you recommend so kind of depends on budget and the amount of people staying? So if you're a large family that's coming I would really recommend looking in a neighboring neighborhood. One great one being bankers health hell so bankers will still very very walkable from little Italy. My parents just recently came out to visit and they stayed and loved it they were. They stayed in Bangor Hill and walked through. I will say one thing to be mindful of if you're super super light sleeper is page two reviews of wherever GONNA say whether it's AIRBNB or the hotel about how loud the airplanes are because little Italy is so close to the airport. Airplanes fly overhead. So something just be mindful of my parents. They stayed in Bakersville literally right on the flight path. So you know. Clean was literally landing like less than a quarter mile from where they were and it says flying overhead and they said that they were woken up to the first two mornings around six. Am and then after that they slept right through it. So bring your plugs s S. at the you don't mind that but bankers will have a lot of airbnb options. That would be awesome for larger families. If you're saying just a few nights and you want a more of a hotel experience there's Hotel Republica I think it's I think it's Republica and then brand new one. That's names already escaped me. Even though I just a sociopath both the Sofia Sofia's anymore downtown I do not have had People that I know staying there and it is. It's nice and it's it's a very close walking distance. It's another one that there's a brand new one that just got built and it starts with a C. O.. We'll put that in the show. Yeah we'll put it in the show and but they've got a lot of different great amenities. I've walked AH. I've not had anyone that I know of have stayed there but I've walked past it multiple times and seen the amenities and it looks very nice and I think fairly typical all one hundred hundred twenty dollars maybe up higher towards the weekend type of rates so are there places to stay in little Italy or is it just more expensive is what you're saying I'm can be more expensive and especially if you're going to airbnb route is it's going to be more expensive. Because a lot of them are larger condos that you'd be renting in Bakers Hill. They're more options ends airbnb wise. And I've done research on this with my parents before so I've seen it. They're just don't tend to be quite as many and a lot of buildings in little Italy. It seems like maybe have restrictions Chins on being able to Airbnb your place. So Bankers Hill is going to be a good option. If you want to go to airbnb route or maybe you're traveling with a larger group and you want more of a house that I can probably find something like that and Bakers Hill much more easily than you would be able to find for a little Italy little in little Italy. Though there are several hotels that are nice. He's fairly affordable. It just depends if you're you know if you've got four kids and trying to sleep everybody it can get that can price can increase pretty quickly. Okay and binker so you would say that. That's pretty safe. Oh yeah okay. Great how about shopping. What would you say the shopping is like round here? Lots of local boutiques and really great kind of art. SEGER shops around here. You're not gonNA find any big box stores and little Italy that's for sure That would be more mission valley area but in little Italy lots of great boutiques firth fashion and even home decor things like that on. There's a few little touristy shops that are around but I'd say the majority is really local local business owners to Cuba boutiques great places to get gifts and then Live music I know live. Music is such a big deal and it seems like you know the way. The Piazza here is that. Tell me all about the live music and let me let let me out bridge the gap here. 'cause I definitely should have mentioned when we asked about shopping. I didn't know if we would get to this later. But the farmer's market every Saturday is huge. It's like what people know little Italy for is is the Machado and it's I think it spans four maybe five blocks. I should know this come almost every single weekend and there are also lots of great local vendors beyond just food related things. So there's food you could come to eat. You could come to shop to make something to eat. You could come to shop for all sorts of different goods. I think the ring that I'm wearing is from From the farmers market so they've got all sorts of different goods and lots of music they have live music on almost every block during during the farmers market. which is amazing and then on Saturday evenings in the Piazza the majority of Saturday evenings they also have live music and other nights throughout the week but I know Oh pretty consistently they have live music? And the Piazza that's free. You just come and hang out and it's awesome and then music box if you want more of like a concert type of field music boxes. Oxygen Really Great Intimates Concert venue that that tends to attract a lot of I wouldn't say bigger bigger name but you know people need to hear on the radio. So how close is it to water being here right on basically on the water. I think I've ever actually seen the I mean I guess I have driven down the highway but like what is there right by the water. Anything Waterfront Park would be something that's right by the water and that's a great place if you got kids and they want to. They need to burn off some energy Waterfront Park is really great for that. There's an awesome playground and it's just very relaxing area so that that is right up against the Harbor Arbor. If you want more of like you WanNa spend a day at the beach you really close to you bet ten minute drive from Coronado or about a ten to fifteen minute drive live from like Pacific beach or somewhere that you could get those of each day. You're not gonNA necessarily be able to have a beach day right and little Italy but you are right on the the the base cell so this is exactly the reason why we have guests on the show. I'm in San Diego but I'm forty five minutes away so when I get down here I have no idea what's going on Yup all right. so how `Bout wineries and breweries would you like so as you know kind of what we were chatting before I mentioned. I'm not the best for beer because I am gluten intolerant but but I do have some reference points for that but I'll chat line I because that's actually going to tonight. CARUTH sellers is my favorite place. They've got A winegarden here in little. It'll it'll have three different locations throughout San Diego but they have a wine garden location in little Italy so the wineries located up North County but they have this. You know it's tasting room field but they've got this great garden. Venue that super relaxing. Great date spot. Or if you're coming with you know like a couple's trip great spot to go. There's also oh an wine house which is really awesome like intimate cute. I would call it like it's very cute. It's feels like your in house there and then poly or polly they wind company Not sure you pronounce. That has more of kind of a modern upscale. Feel to it where they've got this nice rooftop seating and that's also a great replace. That tends to be really popular like Saturday afternoons all right and so then breweries. Your husband goes to the Burris. Yes well I've been with him plenty of times So ballast point is right. Here so bows point is San Diego based so that's a given and I've been there plenty times. They have like little private outside lied. Patio cubbies almost if you put your VIP at a club. But it doesn't feel like that but kind of like that. Where I've been there? People had birthday parties. And they've I don't know if they've rented or just claimed that in advance so it's kind of Nice but they have outdoor area indoor area full menu. Everything they do have wine if you're not into beer. So which is what I had. So but then there's also bolt brewery which tends to be really popular. I have not personally been there but it's always happening over there so zoom..

"Camping. But you're right on the on the beach and we'll you're up high unlike kind of the cliff overlooking the water but then they have steps down that you can go to the beach. It's really great super-safe. The kids just run round ride their bikes all around really fun. We tend to go with you know lots of families and you have to book your campground sites at least six months in advance. So it's Har- it's it's it's hard because it's a very desirable campground. So you'd have to book your sites at least six months in advance however we have found that. Sometimes there's like last minute cancellations and so you can book something more last minute but usually it'll we'll just be from one night if you WANNA do. Weekends are really popular. So we're going this weekend. Which is Veterans Day weekend and it's was really popular weekends so we had to book way back six months ago and we booked for Thursday night Friday night Saturday night Sunday night and that way I think since we were starting on the Thursday we were all able to get sites because we could go the whole time instead of just waiting till Friday because if you wait till the Friday a a lot of places are booked already because people already booked on Thursdays? Yeah but it's really fund camping. How expensive is it? Oh it's not that much at all. Oh I don't I don't even know what it is. We'll look it up and put it on the way I've show notes and things to do in San Diego Dot. US and it's really important that you take a look at the show notes because sometimes tend to talk so fast about things and if you're not familiar with the area you'll have no idea where we're talking about so I point all of that out and put maps there and all sorts of things that's helpful because is yes. I know that there was something else that you're talking about that I used to do with the kids concerts in the park. Oh yes during the summer. We are so lucky in Carlsbad. It's bad because we have concerts in the.

"Host and today. I am with Whitney Ebert. And Whitney is a schoolteacher. Here third grade third grade but she also is one of the inventors of the Blimey box her and her husband. So I'll how put some information on that on the website but in a nutshell the blimey box is really cool thing for kindergarten through. Maybe third graders and it's kind of like if you imagine the escape room but in a box for the kids it'll keep them busy at dinner. So that was kind of how I met Whitney and I just I thought it was so amazing what she created. So welcome Whitney. Hi thanks for helping us today. We're GONNA talk about coastal Carlsbad and we're GonNa talk about the area Well we're also GONNA talk about kids and things to do with kids because I know that there's so many people that go to legal land and then after legal and they're like okay. Where can we go? What else is can we do? And you know something that appeals to appearance as well as the kids yes exactly let's start talking about Carlsbad and Coastal Carlsbad. If you had to describe it it in three phrases or three words what would you say well in kind of the area of Carlsbad that we're talking about today I would definitely say it's cheeks right along the coast very casual law and family friendly. What would you say about transportation? Like how bad is perking on the coast. And what would you do for transportation. Well it depends on what time of year you're here if it's in the summer. Parking is atrocious. And it's really bad especially downtown in the village where there's all the shops in by the beach is is parking is really bad so I would recommend either bring getting here super early in the morning or what's really cool is we do have a train station right downtown. Carlsbad in the village And that's awesome so if you're staying somewhere coastal are coming in from la or downtown San Diego. It's just just an easy stop right on the train in the summer. Parking's bad but the rest of the year parking's pretty good shopping shopping. Well we have a few miles in Carlsbad. We have the outlet mall which is pretty popular with some good stories. We have the shops at Carlsbad. which is a mall? That's kind of a work in progress. Progressive Does have a movie theater which is really Nice in new riegel movie theater and a lot of restaurants but they're still working on getting more stores in there but it's in easy place to take kids because it's never crowded ever so you can always go there as far as the outlet mall. I like about that is. It's right there by legal land right by legal and yes and it's ripped out a flower fields and the flower fields are fun to put on the outlet malls or right there. Lots of good stores. They're fun shopping. And there's one more hint if you ever are here during Fourth of July if you stand right above the flower fields like right on that street that goes to Legoland yes the best place to so watch fireworks you get like maybe ten or twelve different fireworks that you can see you can go. You can see all the way down to point Loma and all the way up until like maybe even past castaways inside you get such an incredible display. That's awesome. What do you think about hiking in parks? I think he'd you guys do a lot of hiking. Do we love to hike around here and there's some really nice easy hike so that even the kids can can hike themselves. We have a dog so we like to look for dog friendly hiking. Oh we'll go down to a bad keates lagoon which is a little bit farther South Carlsbad and it's really easy. I mean even my two year old can walk on these little paths author really flat. It just really pretty down there. They have a little nature reserve and they have a right along a golf course and so you can see Vr Golf. Of course it's really pretty and then we also go over to calibrate hills and it's a little bit more hilly. There are some like a water thing. They're like little man-made Lake or something but it's not as pretty there but it's at least a little bit more heike and my son who's six. He can hike that really easily and my daughter can do part of it but then I have to put her on my back for for part of it as well both of them you can take dogs on leashes so it's really nice. You also told me earlier about Hidden Canyon and I've never been there and you even the locals don't know Oh yeah. So Hidden Canyon is just a little. It's just a little park and playground it's off of Carlsbad village alleged drive and it's east of Alchemy Arou- just a little bit east of El Camino and you go down this little area and it's this little park down there and it's kind of tucked away. It's really nice. A great play structure lots of grass and it is kind of hidden in an especially with young kids. It's like one of those parks where it just feels all kind of tucked away and and closed it in so that it's just a great place to you could just let the kids run around and play. It's awesome one of the things I really love about. Carl's better all these little hidden museum. They're not the huge museums like in Balboa Park but their museums that I swear most of my neighbors don't even know exist. Do you have any of your favorites. If you're yes yes we do. My son is in love with the Museum of making music and he absolutely loves going to that museum and it's really great because he can really interactive for him. He can push lots of buttons here. About how all these different instruments throughout history made noise and what kind of music they make back and it takes him through the history of music and instruments and then at the end. There's like this grey area that super interactive and he compla- lots of different instruments. They have get guitar and drums all sorts of different things that he can be hands on with and he'll spend thirty. He minutes just playing all these different instruments and interacting with them and so he absolutely loves going there so we try to take him like we go there at least six times a year. Because it's one of his favorites and it's right by legal and it's like right in our backyard so it's nice that that it's so close we don't have to be going down to Belo Park all the time and we can just go to some great museums ray here when when my kids were little. We did the same and we couldn't get the kids out of there because you know they'd spend thirty minutes is playing guitar thirty minutes playing drums and then there would be the next instrument and it was nice because they didn't kick you out and it wasn't that dizzy. No yes it's always pretty calm and quiet in there and it's right right next to legal land yes and the gift shop is really cool to get her son. Always get something. There's a tour that I know. Both of us have been dying to take their kids to and ourselves and one day. We'll get to it to of chocolate as I have some friends that have done the tour. We're and they said it's awesome and so. Let's definitely on our checklist. Like we want to go visit there and so twenty years ago. Were there about right. Before Michael all started to our chocolate I met him. He's really an amazing chef as well as a as doing chocolates and he said I want and back then he was an events need us. I want to be known for the chocolate. And the surfing. And so now he's officially in Carlsbad and gives these really amazing tourists and that's somewhat somewhat recent because twenty years ago fifteen years ago. They didn't do that. Yeah no I mean because we see as chocolate the chocolate everywhere and it's so good so I'm just like oh I can't believe it's right in our neighborhood that we can go visit and taste it slam excited and two hours felt C. H. U. A.. And that's for plantation that's in Venezuela this way love and we've got to talk more about the beaches in the lagoon. So what would you like to talk. Shows love that we have we do have amazing beaches in Carlsbad. I'm a little bit biased. But I think I mean we just have amazing beaches. Because they're big and there's lots of and and they're you don't feel cramped. I know some of the beaches down in Southern and farther down south in San Diego a little bit tight and cramped we have some really great beaches in Carlsbad. We also have one of our favorite little places is. There's a lagoon that we go to and we really to this ligament because with my daughter who's two sometimes the waves the regular beaches can be a little bit big and and so at the lagoon. It's a say never pronounce it right. AGUA AGUA ahead. Yoda yes Agua lagoon. They have there's this little beach and and it's with sand. It's dog friendly. which is awesome for us? You can bring your dog on a leash and you can just set up at the beach and it's all sandy. There's no waves and the kids. You can just kind of play in the sand they can. You know splash in the water. There's no swimming but my kids. Don't they just go and get to their knees and build sand castles and play around and they absolutely love it. So it's one of our favorite little beaches to go to and it's tucked away and I grew up in Carlsbad and I didn't even know about this until I was an adult did you. You told me that you guys do jet skiing pedal or somebody knows their new paddle boarding but we bring our own. We bring our own paddleboard. So it's different. There's another place that's a little bit farther. Are there west on the lagoon that I think you can rent things to go but we bring our own and we can launch from this beach and it's right at the end of a street called bayshore drive and it's just just you go down park and there's bayshore drive and it takes you down to this little coldest AC and you can drop off your staff and then you just walk right down to the beach each and it's very it's just a gem. We go there with our friends a lot. I never knew about that. Oh that's I grew up here and I never even knew it existed and now we go. It's one of our number one beaches here so I want to explain a little bit about the lagoons because I think it can be confusing because there's two lagoons yes. Do you want to explain it since you've been in Carlsbad and you're on the coast more so the league in that we were just talking about that. Heavy owned Agua lagoon. That's more than North North Carlsbad..

"And so they're probably GONNA be so you'll be seeing their beer around around town quite a bit booze brothers. The my favorite thing about blues brother's booths brothers is another one. That's in the Vista. The Business Park. I love the way they decorated. It feels like a gigantic living room but they also have an outside area with a stage where they sometimes sometimes have bands. They have outdoor bar. Sometimes they opened up that and then they will bring in food and have the people outside intense serving being the food or they'll have a food truck booth brothers. Pretty good pretty good beer. Oh yeah most of these. There's so many places here that are just in industrial L. spaces and they're all pretty much. Everyone of them has has at least good beer in many very good beer did they vary in what they're like inside. A lot of them are pretty plain and they just have have a tasting bar in among their brewery equipment. Pretty much But Blues Brother's is something extra where they yeah just got couches and and the yeah the outdoor area with a stage. So it's really nice place more of hanging out than the other ones. This is also place that you could bring your dog even if you don't like beer here it's a it's a great place just to hang out that'll make yes. This is a this is a lesser known. One that's one of my favorites and it's cool because it's got a theme. He minutes a basic gaming magic the gathering and dungeons and dragons and they have the walls are covered with the game cards and they serve tasters on on wooden battleaxes and things like that. The beer is great. And it's just a fun place to hang out. They even do gaming on certain weeknights. Let's talk about bars and restaurants so one of the bigger areas for restaurants and and their brand new restaurants that have just gone in. It's right there at Presi. PRESI ranch Casero tonkery. Oh yeah great place. That's one of our favorite of the all the new places that are popping up in it's You know there's no shortage of Toco shops around here but this one is way elevated above the other ones all made in house including the tortillas and really great quality food but it's really nice inside inside it's very modern and airy and it's a bar where you can have its inside half of its outside probably the best part of it is the outdoor area. Because it's really comfortable seating. They have all these pillows they have all of these little fire pits that are almost like individual fire pits and it overlooks the whole bracy ranch area. So it's it's fun to sit out there. It's it's a great time. They're open later than most of the places Panini Kebab bad grill also just opened up. Yep Nice Middle Eastern place although they they will do more American style sandwiches as well Really Nice inside inside. Also a combination of indoor and outdoor seating and elevated food. It was really just really kind of interesting and good good and very very fresh about Sushi. Where would you recommend Toyama Sushi which is near the Carlsbad Library and the The Costa Coffee Roasting there are tons of Sushi places around but this one one of our favorites Sushi's great and We especially like they're happy hour. I believe it goes three thirty to five thirty. Where where most of the Sushi is fifty eighty percent off? Okay Beach Plum Cafe what I love about beach plum cafe this is in the vans. Dove Library area is that it's authen tastic breakfast place but they also serve lunch. Just everything is so fresh. I I think that that's like you know. The overwhelming theme of all the new restaurants popping being up is either farm-to-table or just super fresh also owned by the same people. That Own Beach Cafe is Tinley which is more casual. It would be more of a place that you would take kids. You stand in line order your food sit down and they bring it to you but like just even the French fries for example incredible credible French fries and then they have ten different sauces. That you can choose from Chins is going to be kind of right across the street on El Camino real and that's probably our favourite Chinese place. We've tried dozens and dozens of Chinese places in North County. And we think that that that chinses probably the best one on this district is another favorite of ours. This district is in the bracy ranch shopping area casual somewhat somewhat cast. Yeah little little small place that specializes in seafood. You know they'll do everything from you. Know fish and chips type stuff. But then they also will do fish tacos and pokey bowls and things like that so in real good quality if you're looking for good tacos or something called attack. Oh Barr this is going to be a little bit further out. This is over LAS Pozas and San Marcos Boulevard. And we just like it because it's super fresh you can sit there and watch them make the tortillas and everything just just a great place for street Tacos and all sorts of other Mexicans. Yeah this one I mean this one Reminds is you little more More like properly Mexican where caseros great and we love that to Taco bars. Just more of what you would expect which you know across the border. And they'll do the tacos Alpa store their third replace all right. Churchill Churchill's has been one of our favorite places says for at least twenty five years. A huge beer selection their food. I mean it's typical bar food fish and chips and curries. He's yeah it's it's really I think you know one of the premier probably the best beer bar in North County and one it certainly one of the best ones in the entire entire county. It's it's just a classic just the they get some really interesting beer and their Primarily from all around California but also from around the world and they have trivia nights about once a month. So can't wait for that curry and more. There are an awful lot of Indian places around but I think this one's kind of a level above the The other ones in the area they You know it's all you know Y- buffets or anything like that. It's all fresh made and just I don't it just it just just the quality is what makes me wanNA come back there. Her right and one more To restaurants more breakfast places than anything else else mama cats. This is one of my favorites. It's on San Marcos Boulevard in in San Marcos and what I love about at this place is this is probably the best eggs benedict I've ever had and we have tried several in everywhere San Francisco. You name it where they were always voted did the best and I swear Mama. Cats does better than any of them. They're they're definitely our favorite breakfast place after having other favorites as soon as we discovered this one. It's like wow there way beyond and the other interesting thing about this place is it's more of a destination. They've done some interesting things with it. They are so crowded and so busy. They opened up a gift shop and the gift shops really cool local craftspeople artisans. That put their stuff on consignment. There they've got a place for some games games like cornhole in front and they're just trying to keep people occupied they even put in a Barista station so that you could have your coffee or tea or whatever while you're waiting eating but those weights can get long can easily be an hour so you either want to get there really really early or later on can of after the big breakfast rush and and they do also do lunch and then another place for breakfast is donuts now. Usually we are not that into donuts. But we've got three three kids that love donuts on special occasions we will go to foster's donuts. That's off of San Marcos Boulevard in Rancho Santa Fe and I have to say out of all the the donut places that we have tried including crispy cream. We think that this one is definitely the best place does not look like much. It's a hole in the wall. They have these guys have been doing this for for decades and you know really good quality all the time and just just great donuts They the only take cash so be before warned and then let's talk a little bit about music. There are a few places appear North County that you might find some music doc. There's GonNa be a lot more and we'll talk about those another episodes to but old California Coffee House a few days a week. They will have some live music and then Aztec brewing aspect. Brewing is over there. Off of Sycamore and La Morada close to some of the other places we mentioned the To plink winery twisted horn. Yeah and supposedly. They've got such a music scene going on a friend of mine. WHO's a touring musician said that he knows of five people that have been picked up from there to do national tours because bands will go there and look talent? So that's it. We have done our our best to cover parts of Kosta and a little bit of San.

"Welcome to things to do in San Diego. I'm your host Sherri Manelli and today my guests will be my husband Ron Manila. Because we're going to be talking about an area that's really special to me because it's near where we live. It's a little crazy as it's not focused on exactly one town. It's kind of in the middle of several towns Lacoste Southeast Carlsbad Self Vista and West San Marcos is the area that we're covering today and just reminder. I want you to have the best day ever in San Diego County and so to keep keep the authentic neither my guest nor I are ever paid or compensated for any of the places we mentioned on the podcast. There are no sponsors and and I just want to talk about places that we really love and my guests are I are passionate about. So what's the catch. I am setting up a Patriot account. And if you'd like to donate I would so appreciate that because it does take time to do this podcast and if you go to the website I might have affiliate links but those are going to be clearly labeled able or laid out I would only do affiliate links for places that I feel like that product or service is something that I would personally by for for. Today's show you might want to take a look at the map on things to do in San Diego Dot. US to Orient Yourself. This area is North San Diego County. The epicenter honor. Where we're talking about is around Palam Airport Road and melrose which is about five miles? Inland from the ocean I guess if I had to describe grabbed the area I would say it's extremely family oriented as well as dog friendly people love their dogs appear and loved to take him everywhere. It's also very very safe. It's comfortable and beautiful. So who would this not before I would say if you're on the younger side and you're looking to party. Ah You're looking for more action. You'd WanNa go downtown but if you have kids this is really a great location visit and stay. Were about twelve minutes from legal land. It's really family oriented area. So let's talk about where to stay. If you're looking for hotel you can find quite quite a few down Palomar airport road around L. Forte. That'll be about five miles inland but a great place to stay because it's so close to a whole bunch of grocery stores like trader. Joe's stater brothers and sprouts and it's very close to a lot of restaurants and bars and even a few breweries. It's also only about ten minutes from Lego Lance. So if you're looking for something that's a little less crowded. It's definitely a good alternative additive. If you're looking for something very fancy and expensive. The Omni Look Hasta resort is world famous. They have tennis tournaments in golf tournaments. There that are broadcast all over the world. It's right there Lacoste Avenue and Alchemy. `real the rooms will be very expensive. But they've got all sorts of amenities. It's a luxury hotel. The swimming pools with all the water slides are magnificent. There is a lot of boutique. Shopping at La- CASTA resort. There's also the world famous choper center and there's several really great restaurants fronts. There's also the possibility of staying in an AIRBNB. And there's quite a few that are listed on Airbnb site around Lacoste Kosta and South Carlsbad Spurs transportation. In this area. You will always find plenty of parking. It's definitely place is to drive. There's little to no public transportation so if you don't have a car what you can do. Is You can take the coaster train and go. Oh Two points idea station and then take a lifter an uber. What about shopping in Carlsbad? There's not a lot of shopping in the area. I'm about got to talk about with all the restaurants and bars and breweries and whatnot. Most of the shopping you would wanna go towards the one on one highway as you drive down at. There's lots of little boutiques but there is the outlet mall and the Outlet Mall is close to the five and Pelham report road. There are some other small shops around. One of my personal favorites is uptown cheapskate. And you'll find that at we call it the Dove Library abry area. There's a Vaughn's shopping center and that's it Oh Camino real and Osceola parkway there's also quite a bit of shopping at at the forum and the forum is at K. Barcelona and I'll Camino real. That's a pretty big lifestyle l.. I Guess Strip Mall. I don't know what you would call it. The apple store is there the Jimbo's natural food as well as big toy store. Japan does but there's a lot of other Bucci clothing stores as well and then there's La Kosta the Omni lasta resort and there's there's several very fancy places in there to shop. You probably don't expect to find museums in Carlsbad. There's actually quite wait a few cool ones. I'm not GonNa talk about all of them in this episode. Because we have another episode coming up with Whitney where she talks about what to do after Lego land one of the museums that I'm really fond of. And if you have somebody in your family who loves motors news and mechanical things. Then they need to go to the craftsmanship museum. The Craftsmanship Museum is at ten million dollars museum hidden in a Business Business Park. You would never find it unless you knew the exact address. It's not even open all weekend. It's finally open on Saturdays. From nine to one it is absolutely incredible with the miniatures and replicas they have volunteers that are so excited and passionate tonette too great place to go they ask for just a donation. It's definitely worth going and you can spend hours there if you have little. Oh kids I don't know that I would take them because you're not allowed to touch a lot of things and so that might be a problem. Another museum is a Gemmological Institute of America and the Gemmological Institute. It's world famous. There are people that come from all over the world and I'm shocked at how many people in Carlsbad I bet have no idea that it's they're not only that but they have a museum and they have exhibit that come so in order to see the museum and either take like a guided or self guided tour. You have to make reservations in advance because of the high security definitely if you love gems and rocks. It's worth going. They have a huge library. So if there's any kind of research that you're trying to do you can find your answers there as well another place. That's I suppose kind of a museum Liam. I don't know that I would classify it as such is the Leo Korea ranch. If you're into old westerns you might have heard of Pancho from the Cisco Kid Kit from the fifties. Well Leo Correo was Poncho. He had a long acting career and he wanted a working ranch and he would bring his friends. Sometimes Clark Gable. Other famous people would show up at Leo Korea ranch and so now it was given to the city of Carlsbad and they give tours. You can get though sent to give you a tour or you can just wander around another thing that we like to do there. is we like to get an APP for geocaching take go look for things. It's just kinda fun and especially when the kids were little but one thing that you'll notice about. Leo Korea Rant is that there are about forty peacocks. Yes and the peacocks. Are there because they used to have rattlesnakes and they would bring in the peacock's because the peacocks would eat the rattlesnakes it's a fun place to go. Oh you can get them to turn on a ten or fifteen minute movie so you can learn about Lou crews life and they've got a little gift shop. It's just a cute. I think it's twenty seven Acre place to hang out bring a picnic. They've got lots of picnic. Benches parts of it are very picturesque. So you can take some pictures there as well now. You also have to make sure that you check with them and make sure they're open. They do so many weddings and other big events there that they sometimes closed down early early especially on weekends. Talk about coffee houses. I love coffee houses because I like to go there and do my work and hang out and and there's some really nice ones the first one that I would recommend is lacoste. Roasting Lacoste roasting is in that vence and library strip mall. That I talked about earlier. LA- Castro singers right next to uptown cheapskate. which is a great place to go shopping and I love it because not only do they do? They're roasting there. They bring in really nice tease. They've got a nice bit of bakery goods pastries there. You can sit sit inside or outside. It's just a really comfortable place for people. Watching and relaxing got very comfortable furniture outside. It's really nice. I I also like old California coffeehouse and that's in restaurant row so if you go down Pelham our airport road all the way down until it turns into San Marcos Boulevard. So I would say it's probably seven miles from the coast. I Love Old California coffeehouse because it's so o'cl Arctic. They have really good food there. They even have to Lotto to start a great place to sit and have a nice tea or a coffee. And then finally a Pete's coffee I usually don't recommend chains. But what I like about. Pete's coffee is the location. Pete's coffee is right there. At presi ranch Presi ranches off of Gateway Costa Forte off of Palomar Airport road. It's a huge shopping shopping center. Three grocery stores around there many restaurants and many are really excellent and a few bars pete's coffee. She is situated right there next to trader Joe's and next to the park and the park for bracy ranch has a Gazebo Abo- and some fountains. There's a ton of roses but it's just so beautifully maintained it's a nice place to sit there on the patio patio and just people watch and with our nice weather. It's pretty much great year round all right now. It's time to talk about brees bars restaurants food and have ron here. My husband thinks Ron for helping me on this part. Of course all right. Let's talk about wineries because there's some some shockingly good wineries in Carlsbad and San Marcos that you would never guess were here One of my favorites is to plank. which which is just in a tiny industrial park in Vista? It's right off of Sycamore and La Mirada. Excellent wine. They bring it in they bring in the grapes and they do all of the processing for it. Make the wine in house and I think it definitely deserves a shout. Yeah absolutely it's a great quality. Polity wine they they source from all sorts of places and the winemaker really knows what he's doing so it's just great great stuff in a nice nice tasting room there. Yeah the tasting awesome closes at eight but if you get your butt in the doorway before eight you can stay. There's another winery. Leffler Fleur is in San Marcos. Like a uh not too far off San Marcos Boulevard near the LAS Pozas exited gives a highway seventy eight and It's another one really nice. People great wine Industrial Park doesn't doesn't look like much but it's a it's nice. It's good good wine. Good Times yeah and what I like about. Both of these places is that they they have painting nights to plank is going to start having it weekly on Saturday night where you can go paint and have a glass of wine and flora. I'm not sure they're scheduled so take a look at their website website. Let's try not wine or beer twisted horn. Yeah this is. This is a great place They specialize in hard cider and mead. Mead is is wine made with honey instead of grapes. Just really something different especially loved the decider. They do the traditional varieties plus they have a whole bunch of wants at add fruit and spices and all that and they always have something different in the winter. They do mulled CIDER. So it's warm with spices and everything and so great stuff steph. Curry's so we're only going to cover about three of them because in other episodes will probably cover other ones Carlsbad. Brewing is one of the newer places that opened up so immensely popular. We were there only a few weeks after they opened great food. And they're not even they decided not to even have one of those grand openings because they were already too popular. I think it's going to get more and more popular and I also If you WANNA quite dinner at this is not the place to go. It's very loud because it's one huge tall room.

"Welcome to things to do in San Diego I'm your host Sherri Manelli and today my guests will be my husband Ron Manila because we're going to be talking about an area that's really special to me because it's near where we live it's a little crazy as it's not focused on exactly one town it's kind of in the middle of several towns lacoste southeast Carlsbad Self Vista and West San Marcos is the area that we're covering today and just a reminder I want you to have the best day ever in San Diego County and so to keep keep the authentic neither my guest nor I are ever paid or compensated for any of the places we mentioned on the podcast there are no sponsors and and I just want to talk about places that we really love and my guests are I R- passionate about so what's the catch I am setting up a Patriot account and if you'd like to donate I would so appreciate that because it does take time to do this podcast and if you go to the website I might have affiliate links but those are going to be clearly labeled able or laid out I would only do affiliate links for places that I feel like that product or service is something that I would personally by for for today's show you might want to take a look at the map on things to do in San Diego Dot us to Orient Yourself this area is North San Diego County the epicenter honor where we're talking about is around Palam Airport Road and melrose which is about five miles inland from the ocean I guess if I had to describe grabbed the area I would say it's extremely family oriented as well as dog friendly people love their dogs appear and loved to take him everywhere it's also very very safe it's comfortable and beautiful so who would this not before I would say if you're on the younger side and you're looking to party ah you're looking for more action you'd WanNa go downtown but if you have kids this is really a great location visit and stay were about twelve minutes from legal land it's really family oriented area so let's talk about where to stay if you're looking for hotel you can find quite quite a few down Palomar Airport road around L. Forte that'll be about five miles inland but a great place to stay because it's so close to a whole bunch of grocery stores like trader Joe's stater brothers and sprouts and it's very close to a lot of restaurants and bars and even a few breweries it's also only about ten minutes from Lego Lance so if you're looking for something that's a little less crowded it's definitely a good alternative additive if you're looking for something very fancy and expensive the Omni Look Hasta resort is world famous they have tennis tournaments and golf tournaments there that are broadcast all over the world it's right there Lacoste Avenue and alchemy `real the rooms will be very expensive but they've got all sorts of amenities it's a luxury hotel the swimming pools with all the water slides are magnificent. There is a lot of boutique shopping at La- CASTA resort there's also the world famous choper center and there's several really great restaurants fronts there's also the possibility of staying in an AIRBNB and there's quite a few that are listed on Airbnb site around Lacoste Kosta and South Carlsbad Spurs transportation in this area you will always find plenty of parking it's definitely a place is to drive there's little to no public transportation so if you don't have a car what you can do is you can take the coaster train and go oh two points idea station and then take a lifter an uber what about shopping in Carlsbad there's not a lot of shopping in the area I'm about got to talk about with all the restaurants and bars and breweries and whatnot most of the shopping you would wanna go towards the one on one highway as you drive down at there's lots of little boutiques but there is the outlet mall and the outlet mall is close to the five and Pelham report road there are some other small shops around one of my personal favorites is uptown cheapskate and you'll find that at we call it the Dove Library Abry area there's a Vaughn's shopping center and that's it L. Camino real and Osceola parkway there's also quite a bit of shopping at at the forum and the forum is at K. Barcelona and I'll Camino real that's a pretty big lifestyle L. I guess Strip mall I don't know what you would call it the apple store is there the Jimbo's natural food as well as big toy store Japan does but there's a lot of other Bucci clothing stores as well and then there's La Kosta the Omni luster resort and there's there's several very fancy places in there to shop you probably don't expect to find museums in Carlsbad there's actually quite wait a few cool ones I'm not GonNa talk about all of them in this episode because we have another episode coming up with Whitney where she talks about what to do after Lego land one of the museums that I'm really fond of and if you have somebody in your family who loves motors news and mechanical things then they need to go to the craftsmanship museum the Craftsmanship Museum is at ten million dollars museum hidden in a business business park you would never find it unless you knew the exact address it's not even open all weekend it's finally open on Saturdays from nine to one it is absolutely incredible with the miniatures and replicas they have volunteers that are so excited and passionate tonette too great place to go they ask for just a donation it's definitely worth going and you can spend hours there if you have little oh kids I don't know that I would take them because you're not allowed to touch a lot of things and so that might be a problem. Another museum is a Gemmological Institute of America and the Gemmological Institute it's world famous there are people that come from all over the world and I'm shocked at how many people in Carlsbad I bet have no idea that it's they're not only that but they have a museum and they have exhibit that come so in order to see the museum and either take like a guided or self guided tour you have to make reservations in advance because of the high security definitely if you love gems and rocks it's worth going they have a huge library so if there's any kind of research that you're trying to do you can find your answers there as well another place that's I suppose kind of a museum Liam I don't know that I would classify it as such is the Leo Korea ranch if you're into old westerns you might have heard of Pancho from the Cisco Kid Kit from the fifties well Leo Correo was Poncho he had a long acting career and he wanted a working ranch and he would bring his friends sometimes Clark Gable other famous people would show up at Leo Korea ranch and so now it was given to the city of Carlsbad and they give tours you can get though sent to give you a tour or you can just wander around another thing that we like to do there is we like to get an APP for geocaching take go look for things it's just kinda fun and especially when the kids were little but one thing that you'll notice about Leo Korea rant is that there are about forty peacocks yes and the peacocks are there because they used to have rattlesnakes and they would bring in the peacock's Kaz the peacocks would eat the rattlesnakes it's a fun place to go oh you can get them to turn on a ten or fifteen minute movie so you can learn about Lou crews life and they've got a little gift shop it's just a cute I think it's twenty seven Acre place to hang out bring a picnic they've got lots of picnic benches parts of it are very picturesque so you can take some pictures there as well now you also have to make sure that you check with them and make sure they're open they do so many weddings and other big events there that they sometimes closed down early early especially on weekends talk about coffee houses I love coffee houses because I like to go there and do my work and hang out and and there's some really nice ones the first one that I would recommend is Lacoste Roasting Lacoste roasting is in that vence and library Strip mall that I talked about earlier La- Castro singers right next to uptown cheapskate which is a great place to go shopping and I love it because not only do they do they're roasting there they bring in really nice tease they've got a nice bit of bakery goods pastries there you can sit sit inside or outside it's just a really comfortable place for people watching and relaxing got very comfortable furniture outside it's really nice I I also like old California coffeehouse and that's in restaurant row so if you go down Pelham our airport road all the way down until it turns into San Marcos Boulevard so I would say it's probably seven miles from the coast I love old California coffeehouse because it's so o'cl Arctic they have really good food there they even have to lotto to start a great place to sit and have a nice tea or a coffee and then finally a Pete's coffee I usually don't recommend chains but what I like about Pete's coffee is the location Pete's coffee is right there at Presi ranch Presi ranches off of Gateway Costa Forte off of Palomar road. It's a huge shopping shopping center three grocery stores around there many restaurants and many are really excellent and a few bars Pete's coffee she is situated right there next to trader Joe's and next to the park and the park for bracy ranch has a Gazebo Abo- and some fountains there's a ton of roses but it's just so beautifully maintained it's a nice place to sit there on the patio patio and just people watch and with our nice weather it's pretty much great year round all right now it's time to talk about brees bars restaurants food and have ron here my husband thinks Ron for helping me on this part of course all right let's talk about wineries because there's some some shockingly good wineries in Carlsbad and San Marcos that you would never guess were here One of my favorites is to plank which which is just in a tiny industrial park in Vista it's right off of Sycamore and La Mirada excellent wine they bring it in they bring in the grapes and they do all of the processing for it make the wine in house and I think it definitely deserves a shout yeah absolutely it's a great quality quality wine they they source from all sorts of places and the winemaker really knows what he's doing so it's just great great stuff in a nice nice tasting room there yeah the tasting awesome closes at eight but if you get your butt in the doorway before eight you can stay there's another winery leffler fleur is in San Marcos like a uh not too far off San Marcos boulevard near the LAS Pozas exits a highway seventy eight and it's another one really nice people great wine industrial park doesn't doesn't look like much but it's a it's nice it's good good wine good times yeah and what I like about both of these places is that they they have painting nights to plank is going to start having it weekly on Saturday night where you can go paint and have a glass of wine and flora I'm not sure they're scheduled so take a look at their website website let's try not wine or beer twisted horn yeah this is this is a great place They specialize in hard cider and mead mead is is wine made with honey instead of grapes just really something different especially loved the decider they do the traditional varieties plus they have a whole bunch of wants at add fruit and spices and all that and they always have something different in the winter they do mulled cider. So it's warm with spices and everything and so great stuff steph curry's so we're only going to cover about three of them because in other episodes will probably cover other ones Carlsbad brewing is one of the newer places that opened up so immensely popular we were there only a few weeks after they opened great food and they're not even they they decided not to even have one of those grand openings because they were already too popular I think it's going to get more and more popular and I also if you WANNA quite dinner at this is not the place to go it's very loud because it's one.
"diego" Discussed on Things To Do In San Diego Podcast
"All right welcome to things to do in San Diego I'm your host Sherri Manelli and today with Dina Sharpe she's a friend of mine who lives in oceanside and she's also a realtor so if you need a realtor in oceanside come look her up on my show notes welcome Dina day ever in oceanside so let's start by talking about the vibe of oceanside to let people know whether or not this is a place that they'd really WanNa come visit her ah excellent so we my family has been coming to oceanside for years and years and years and then my husband and I just reload here from Arizona I know a lot Onis come out here every year and oceanside has changed drastically it is now even more family friendly there are tons more places to eat and hang out and it really it's not like they've done a massive cleanup even though they may well have done we never saw that 'cause we stayed beachfront but it's just really a neat place families that is maybe a little bit quieter than calls bad even though I should retract that because that's going to change really in 'cause they just changing up how oceanside is viewed amongst Californian southern Californians they're just making a lot more user friendly easier to walk and like I said all these restaurants that are coming in just make a really pleasurable destination so more on the VIBE it's different than you would find like La Hoya and Omar I think so I mean I love those places of course they're gorgeous and just really neat little towns oceanside is bigger more beach and I think a little bit more family friendly I don't know you see just as many families in the summer so right that's not a good indication but it is it's a lot more relaxed its much shorts and tee shirt year round you know you can go anywhere in jeans not that I think you can't in La Hoya oil more or somewhere like that but it's a lot more relaxed up here I think you'd have a little bit more working class here because you've got the marines that are just to the north that's right now we bought Camp Pendleton so huge military nation a lot of marines live off base they live in oceanside as well that's right and I do want to say it used to be rough in oceanside like ten fifteen years ago it's changed got so it's really becoming nice it's probably one of the last places it can really buy yes close to the beach talking to the real estate yeah may the Realtor Paul absolutely the it is quote unquote still affordable I understand southern California prices at different from the rest of the country but as far as so callous it really is one of the last places for sure okay let's talk about the safety the transportation and hotels here okay so transportation there is a huge each train station down there in oceanside which you can get up to L. A. Area on the metrolink but you can also take the coast of south we've done this a lot because you can park right there by the station for free and get on this train which takes the best of an hour but it's gorgeous you go all the way down the coastline and it's super easy often then you can walk right you can do little Italy downtown this stops all the way along Solano all that kind of stuff but really really user friendly easy reasons bull you can get a bucket load of people on there that way you don't have to worry about parking in downtown so that's that there are buses not the person to ours uh I'm afraid I see them all the time but I'm not sure I mean I'm sure they're all over I've just not used them the parking isn't too bad in oceanside does she if you get up from the beach just a little bit like around the Civic Center there is a Cop Hawk at the library and civic center so that's the main mode but that's typically southern cal near as well everyone's driving as far as staying there awesome hotels around but speaking from personal experience we would always rent somewhere so I do airbnb or just do listen to post and rental of either a flat like an apartment or a house and there are tons of Thurs absolutely it's a he huge part of the industry here is tourism and it's good they're good and you can see all the pictures and you can have somebody go and facetime and walk around so you know exactly what you'll get thing so let's talk about the beaches Yuccas that's where oceanside zone for two yes it is should have looked this up because it's a major perma piece but stretch of beach at oceanside I believe is the largest in the whole of San Diego County so it's a really big stretch of beach and we have the peer which my husband loves the Pierre he should talk about the pair there's this lovely Pelican House ben gets fed by one of the merchants and at the very end is Ruby's Dina which is absolutely iconic for your diner experience you can sit there and look out in the ocean it really is fun the beach has around the Perez well a bunch of little restaurants and you can rent by and trikes and all those kind of things the beach is also quite deep you know so on probably the busy this weekend which is July the fourth packed but you don't feel like a sardine because it's really large all the way from the harbor all the way down now that's the I would take the train or get an Uber or lift APP certifying -solutely that is the busiest we can we've ever seen it we had friends and family and on and don't get me wrong we will fine we had fun but there was traffic jams how that's a nice way to put it and we will find it just longtime it probably took double the amount of time to get down there than it would ordinarily agree absolutely there is a farmer's market and a son asset market to an A. described though every Thursday around civic center which is also right by the library there is a farmer's market in the morning and it's at market at night and I believe that is year round now I'm not sure what happens if those days of Christmas thanksgiving Thanksgiving's obviously on Thursday but if Chris lands on that day but these are really fun tons of food trucks tons of local produce close all kinds of things it's very casual the produce I think is amazing because it's local I was like to buy that way anyway so that's always really nice again you can park at the library Arri to get that that's poking around as well so it's not so such a big deal but you know in the summer it's a little bit more popular because tourists come out as well and go and help themselves as well if they have a place where they can cook but they can buy fresh bread that's another one French bread and herbs and jams and it's just really it's just a really neat market it's out in the open it's very safe very safe and then the the sunset one again the food trucks sunset I went and did some research on the market I I asked that Info desk there's just curious because there were so many food vendors I just couldn't even count them all while turns out there's eighty Oh and there's another hundred and twenty eight hundred two hundred twenty either come of the other vendors as well so it is a huge every desert you could ever want to it's fabulous and eight for picky kids and everybody wants to go a different role I love that yeah they will want something different so they can all have it there is ridiculous and it's good food two yeah yeah and it's fun isn't it it's a fun vibe it's a really great thing to do on a Thursday night absolutely how about breakfast let's talk about breakfast so breakfast it's places they're all a feud on chill plenty more but we haven't we've only lived here a few months so not that many but up here further up on mission and El Camino is a place old oceanside bakery which is very their desert case is huge full of fresh pastries and cakes and bread things in a class I mean I'm kidding you not when you look on their site it's the truth and you go see it and the the workmanship in each of these things is phenomenal as well I do not work for them we just go that quite often it's closed and it's really good breakfast excellent that I couldn't recommend enough and also the coffee drinks because I know a lot of you want to just go and have a coffee and maybe a pastry there is the petit medalla madeline that is on the highway that's I think it's on you or civic center and highway that's really good and lovely as well not GonNa talk too much about the food because I just did that they will do an excellent job of that not too hard to get in you know I mean I think especially if you don't go to the major busiest times you know like between eight and ten on a holiday during the holidays ben that's totally fine the beach break cafe is that's not only breakfast that feeds into lunch as well but that tax point hooper popular really popular because it's bigger you know you can get bigger parties in there so that's also on the highway on the coast highway wall that goes into coffee to coffee in Italy where would you recommend absolutely any of those black rock is also that's a chain but excellent I'm really picky with T. so veiled to a really good job I'm Swami's is another one that do breakfast brunch and lunch there's usually a q. out a dual in the summer but it goes really quickly don't be dismayed if you see that it you'll get in it's fine you order at the front and go find somewhere to sit and it's a he huge restaurant as well there's a couple of I think on the highway with the one in oceanside is really quite large and they've got the seating on the street so you can sit and people watch which is always really mm-hmm as well I think you'd mentioned some other coffee places to me before too oh yeah the the Banana Dang Banana Tang I'm a bread so I say that yeah that's a fun place that smoothies and coffees and teas that's really good very popular because it has the banana sign and then also clearview coffee again I think you just go to really good choice out here anymore I really do I think the days of kind of a Rubbish Cup of coffee is gone because the competition is so extreme Mary so you pretty sorted on that you can do just fine any other places for food okay food is one of the up and coming places things in oceanside the one of the most popular and we've been tons of times is L. T. H. which stands for local tap house which I know will feed into the raise that we're talking about afterwards but they do full menu they do brunches the weekend they do their bottomless mimosas their food is exceptional it is just always good they change up the menu they try and do farm-to-table they really care about it it's a fun fun restaurant they have the screens but you don't have the the the sports screaming at you necessarily can still watch the games I don't know I watch football American football regular football as well but it's just kind of Nice and our in baseball time that's up there so you can watch it without hearing and still have a conversation with your party really fun place I think but if you have out of town guests who want you know California fair whatever that means but you know that doesn't just mean sprouts and Avocado on a burger that means a mirror bland and that's like tack Os and that kind of the South Sobar very casual very fun now that they do turn up the noise on the game so if you actually want to hear what's going on so Monday night is busy during football time and they encourage that they do tackle specials and beer specials and stuff but that's a really really fun place and really reasonable and very kid friendly they've got tables outside as well so you can get away from the noise echoes some of those restaurant wants but those of two favorites birthdays and stuff like that for us we do the pig the flying pig they have a couple of places but the one on the on the coast highway is a little bit more like they did just do some revamping of the restaurant but that is exceptional little bit nicer dining maybe date night out of town guests that you may WanNa impress a little bit then menu is extensive extraordinary it's just really really good not huge but definitely go there bar is really good they do the classic tales but they'll they'll have specials going on their wine list is really good and.
"diego" Discussed on Things To Do In San Diego Podcast
"Locum two things to do in San Diego I'm your host Sherri Manelli he and today we're focusing mostly on North Park I say mostly because we also cover a few places that are probably into south park or normal heights there are several small neighborhoods that can convert in that area so North Park is just a few miles northeast of downtown take a look at our map on things to do in San Diego Dot EU ass you'll get a better sense of where it's located in this episode Sr James and Julian sinks and they'll get a virtual tour of the area will cover the vied parking hotels burris ars restaurants shopping and music I picked Jane's Jer Lean to help me because they lived in that area for about ten years and I know that they're both really passionate foodies and they're honest and they know what they like down there so they gave us plenty of ideas just so you know neither of my guests nor hi are paid all the places that we recommend on the show are places that we are recommending because we love them so there is oh compensation I want this information to be real and authentic so here we go with the show can you tell me little bit about North Park like how safe it is where it is and what else is around it North Park if you like food and ear and not like a massive party scene I would say north parks the way to go if you're just visiting a downtown's always people watching and can get pretty wild but if you want good food good drinks I would say North Park Place yeah no if you're visiting has safe would you say the area around North Park North Park is kinda like any other just outside of downtown city you know you'll come across your homeless people and stuff like that but for the most part it's safe I've never had any issues really walking around at night or anything like that so it's fairly safe everything's really mostly on one St Thirtieth Street is is basically all up and down Thirtieth Street from South Park to north car- everything's kind of connected North Clark is fairly small but it's a bunch of little areas jam packed into one so there's South Park North Park than that goes in to normal height and all of that is kind of linked together where would you recommend people stay there's not a lot of hotel there's a couple none that I would really recommend other than Lafayette off I is is a an older Classic Hotel that's really really nice other than that it's a bunch of motels I would say it's more air airbnb North Park the kind of place to go shopping there's very little shopping it's mostly restaurant there's a cool store called pigment I know that they've opened a couple of other stores in other areas it's kind of a the kind of plants and stationary and pretty cool little store from their old bookstores there's Marietta Antique store here and there are mixed in but for the most most part there's it's it's mostly food and drink parking there is absolute really no parking there's Uber and lift and taxis the trolleys do not come down there if you have a designated driver it's that kind of the way to go and you just park in when an and in the residential areas if you can find parking on busy it's it's it can be almost impossible on Wednesday nights there's a group of breweries in little restaurant it's I ain't there's a total of seven all night they have a bus that goes to all seven of those restaurants in brewery and bars I some paid parking structures there's like one parking structure it's pretty big Parkin thirtieth and university I would I would suggest is like it's if you're aiming this podcast for people who are like staying in downtown area I think the best way to get there the only take like do left or uber as far as like you know coming down from its Anita's people that are not early tell me a little bit about the beer scene I'm I'm a big beer guy though honestly you could probably oh two one brewery night for probably a good two or three weeks now ever go to the same brewery so the end there's always new ones popping up they actually do have a couple of beer tours they have saw they have one that's on one of those big pedal bike cars that fit I I think if it's fake ten or fifteen people on it everyone pedals and there's there's one person taking it off you on the tour steers so you get a workout and you get to drink what are your top three favorite breweries top three favorite one would be belching beaver then there would be modern times and then second chances always a good one too and those are all within while everything's within walking distance but you could everything is probably a three minute walk the in the past me and some friends have done like a a South Park North Park pub walk Beerwah doc or brewery and we'd go to we always had plan twelve but we never made it that many brewing there's a home brewer is right there on El Qom boulevard which is an end of a one stop shop if you enjoy brewing and they actually have a tap room where they have their own beers on tap if you ever had a question about brewing or different types of beers that's where you would go jail you can go in and try just about every type of beer so they have sours and they can tell you everything about them and how to make them and everything so that's a pretty cool fun place to go if you ever wanted to learn about brewing but as far as on top of that go there's there's fall growing there's a big there's bilking beaver rip current Second Chance North Gear Company Mike Hass Modern Times South Park growing there's just the do could just keep going and going and they're all good and they're all past all the time where would you go for food to the burris tend to have food none of those really have food and there's one rip current that has a restaurant attached to them but none of them really have food there if you're the big into just a tap house that has good decent bar food my favorite would have to be Hamilton's tavern which always has probably around forty beers on tap with a insane bottle list that that you'll just they have beers that you won't find anywhere else normal bar food but it's actually done pretty good they have a full kitchen and they'll have like Monday nights is they do like fried chicken sandwiches for the Monday night football game they have this amazing thing called second Saturday which I don't know if we want to put that out into the public but here goes so every second Saturday of the mountains they have a chapter Geico ver- which normally pairs with food normally always pairs with food but they'll bring in a full tap list of a certain brewery and then there resident chefs his name is might will make a full like four course meal and the meals is completely free so you don't pay for any of the food and it's always well done are one of my favorite ones was they had Maui brewing and they had all of their the Maui Beers and they had sucks Ling pig that a couple of other Hawaiian dishes that were just amazing and everything's free so normally they let you go through one time and then just so everyone gets them they'll go ahead and let let you come through if you want more again afterwards after everyone's can they're on their their own share and then it's always they'll have one really special cast that they do five dollars clients which is the it's something you won't ever see and if you do see it it's more like eight to ten dollars a pint if you're not into beer what else can you get there on there there's actually a cider place that is there also just south of belching beaver it is called Bo VACs which is really good they make all of their siders in house it's it's pretty amazing if you WanNa Kinda stay away from the beers but still get something you know Britney bear and something crispin has some good alcohol cont and seven grand which is if you enjoy whiskey it's a whiskey bar they have a couple of around there's one of La but this old speakeasy vibe yeah are there any other cool bars in the area Coin op which is a bar that has tons of video game inside and end outdoor games outside is there a wine tasting places down there the couple different wine tasting at classes there's it's called sips and it's the card based one where you put up some cash on a card and then you yeah and can you it's anywhere from ten cents a little sip a dollar tip so you can you can actually taste creedy expensive wines for pretty cheap so it's it's like you push the button once you get a little out you just gotTa be careful there because Guillermo and he can go real quick if you find when you likes especially if it's more unexpansive one there's actually an urban winery they're called Negoti John that actually makes all the wine in house and all the barrels are there and a bottle there they they crush the grapes there they pretty much everything there there's some really good wine what other kinds of food are there there's about any type of food whether it's quick and easy or sit down fancy it's all in regards there's some of the best tie we think yeah baen tie is very good Thai place you have to get there early or is this the James or you just call it in also you have to like keep calling them till the they cut because they're always busy though it's very small I think there's what maybe three tables inside four tables inside and Ford newly maybe four tables outside for six tables outside the main drag there's called Park Park Avenue Arkan Adams Avenue Yeah so on that street you could literally a tie food Vegan's Food Pizza Mediterranean food food Mexican Italian and everything yeah they have it's a good and actually there's the breakfast place there nick sandwiches and the sandwiches the lady who works in the liquor stores this Middle Eastern lady there's the lefties verges yes it may it may not live up to your standards but left these Chicago Pizza is is a pretty decent deep dish pizza play ace they they they do a pretty good deep dish it's one of the only places around here that around North Park San Diego that I think does assaults relied deep dish pizza are there's some there's some good pizza places down in North Park to pizzeria Bruno at so those are both very good I would say it's more like Italy style kind of Billions Cecilia thing so salient thing pretty decent that's a teacher Bruno and Luigi or more of a down restaurant full pizza how about Mexican food what would you recommend in North Pars I like those their city tacos there's Cantina may well it has they have an amazing happy hour you're five dollar Margaritas and I think they have a plate of three tacos three street Tacos for seven dollars or something like that those are they're really good tacos not not not to mention their Margaritas are really good to Mae Chai think they have a couple of hundred different deke he was on the wall along with MMA scowls ensuring a Tequila and Miscou mood that's where you'd go what kind of fine dining can you find in north park if you want more late we're fine dining there's the contro who can make a lot of their dishes with Kartik crack which if you don't know what that is is an amazing try chipsets made up in North County you may go up drive up every day and they bring a whole bunch of a bunch of slabs of tip down and they make a lot of their dishes with that if you go all the way down by modern times there's underbelly for Rahman and kind of an Asian flare things and then across the street is fairly fancy when you get into smoking goat and wonder North those are all places that are top notch and tiger tiger also that's kind of the more north

"At very young age he goes to Naples essentially because they're the only team that will by him but Napoli Naples are the poorest city probably in Europe probably the highest murder rate and crime rate in Europe and high up there in the world massive kind of Comoro gang warfare going on at the time. They've never won anything and they get the most expensive player in the world. Naples is full of streetwise characters and GEICO GEICO finds his element. He finds the city that made for really and he does incredibly well with the team and he brings the team up to the championship. The only time they've won they've never won before foil and they've never won since that's why he becomes elevated as the good like character. We're talking with US capacity about his new documentary. Diego America people who are supporters of England would remember probably very unfortunately the hand of God goal in one thousand nine hundred six World Cup clearance Camara Donna with shorten the hi. I'm Donna celebrating and the polls going to be given but what people forget in that game the other goal he scored which is considered one of the greatest goals in the history of professional soccer aw it's in the film that to love and hate and to know jiggle `Maradona is to see those goals and you know everything about it yeah in way football. There's a saying in England and it's a game of two halves and so the film is about a two sides of the Eggo in many ways. It's about the beauty and it's about achieve. He's he's a genius. He's a devil and the whole thing about him is his character as these two sides to him and you need one to have the other. You can't basically separate him. You know you've got this. He's a really loving friendly guy really really lovely sense of humor but he's got an incredible darkness through personality as well and so yeah the idea of that match really he's achieved the law in his career but that game against England is a reason why he's loved and hated there is obviously tremendous amounts of footage of Diego Maradona a plane football or we call it. Do It do it. Do is cool football but there's also archival footage that you have in this film that makes the movie. How did you come upon this footage. Who collected it? And where did you find it. In the process of making this documentary somebody got in touch saying there is footage out there that we have gone John Potentially access to filmed by to Argentinian cameramen who were hired by Diego Maradona's agent in one thousand nine hundred eighty one when he's really young and this guy I thought Maradona is GonNa be a star so I'm going to film it starts filming him with two cameramen who follow him from Buenos Aires through Bacelona. They go to Naples on the Pitch Hitch of the pitch. They're in the car when he's traveling. They're the guys filming him arriving at Annapolis Stadium that amazing footage when he's walking into the Coliseum. The cameraman got fired never got paid. It probably went off with the tapes one hour outside of Naples. There's this guy with a room full of you. Matic yourself video format for natives u matic tapes of Maradona have never it'd been seen before how many hours hundreds of hours my producer kind of went through and he came up the number five hundred but it could be seven hundred half of the footage we found out set of Naples news then we realized there's more it wasn't all this and then we had to figure out who's good and we found Diego. Maradona's ex wife had it in a trunk in their apartment in Buenos Aires said shots shots in the film where he gets out of a car and reverse show we found on the other side road in Buenos Aires. So what does that give you as a filmmaker. If you're trying to reveal some version of a mirror Donna that's not known I would say that the onset in these films we've we've sent a amy and we Maradonna is. I love to kind of study them. When I'm doing the research I'm looking at it is I'm looking at here face shape their body shape and trying to guess what year resists were what period of the life when they happy when they smiling. When is the light go from there is what happened? Something's gone wrong. They're lying and you can see what a tells are and so me what the footage gives. You is the opportunity and the way all of my films have been made is to stay in the president at that particular moment in time to follow the characters and to see their faces and really the audience can just understand a story by looking at them because you're seeing the real kind of on on an unfettered version of them. This isn't material that was shot. Even though the idea was to make a movie is not the kind of social media of now where people go back and look at their phone and satellite away away my face looks delete this was shot and forgotten about so he's thirty years old thirty five years old footage some of it and you're looking at it and you gain. He's ignoring the camera sin as naturalism realism to him even though he's one of the most famous people so that's what I'm trying to do is trying to get a naturalism characters to show the story and then to give you the context through the voices the interviews I do to understand what's going on people who I think no Maradona have this image and it's a visual image in their mind of him as overweight struggling with addiction and yet. There's a period when he's playing in Naples where he is as fit as any athlete on the field he was the best. There's no denying denying it. What what he would say is just imagine how good it could have been if I had trained like everyone else had kind of that level of professionalism but that wasn't him. I mean that's the the important thing about this film. A lot of people know the ending they know he became a beast and he had a cocaine problem and various other things. What I'm interested in is the journey of where were they before you know the version of the egg on you've not seen or you don't know about that's not on twitter or on instagram but actually the soccer player when he was at his key prime prime years when he became the best player in world what he achieved even though he has a massive presence in an ego he was an incredible team player and took a not a great. Argentina team and they won the World Cup and he took a very ordinary Napoli team and beat the strongest teams in Europe and the world at a time which would northern Italian teams richest teams in the world at the time. There's there's footage toward the end of the movie about Maradona very present day and it's it's difficult to watch to see what has become of him when you were thinking about how you wanted to end the movie and what what Maradona might take away from the film. What was it that you were focusing on. I mean it's a real challenge because he's the one of the reasons for doing the film was it was very different to Tamie. They tragically died very young spoke to a lot of people or biographies and Writers and people who've spent time moving saying the minute. You presented a publisher on a minute. You send you know this is the film that I've made about him. Something will happen tomorrow way. Just turns your home movie upside down so my aim was to try and make a film that deals with him but also gives you the essence of his life in his journey and hints at who he became later when you think of Diego Maradona. You don't think of someone who looks a bit lonely a bit lost but actually you realize a lot of these athletes. A lot of people become famous in the end. I just just wanted to be home with his mom. You know he just he's. UC's is a lost child but he covers it up with all matches. Mo- you know being controversial and being angry and doing things but actually underneath is still a kid has not yet we've tried. I met him five or six times when he was living in Dubai. That's where did the interviews and as we were completing. Fleeting the film I tried to go to show it to him and that's when his team he decided to leave Dubai and stop traveling the world and he was at the World Cup and I thought that's not a good time to show you this and then he moved to Mexico when he was coaching and Sinoloa and he's only just WanNa sorry so in the next couple of weeks. Planets go to Buenos Aires to show to him achieved Capote as his new documentary is called Diego Maradona Assif. Thanks for coming on the show. Thank you great spirit here the documentary Diego Maradona debuts tonight on HBO up next on the frame the new album from Gaby Moreno and we bid farewell to Jessye Norman..
