Anyone tried the "new" Sab E Lee on Linda Vista Rd. next to Dunkin' Donuts?

Every. Single. Time.

Las Cuatro Milpas hot sauce?

I'm at Mary's for 90 seconds at about 0630-0700 on select Saturdays and Sundays on the way to the swap.

Hate coffee, never sit and sip that stuff.

Maybe see you there!

Nah, I'd get beat up over there.

I've learned long ago the canary's job is the least desirable in any coal mine.

It is my largely unshared belief the current "Craft Beer Sensation" is an emperor without clothing.

I further believe the product differential is so small it must be shored up by extreme marketing tactics, in particular names like "My Mama's Morning Breath IPA" or "Socrates' Hemlock IPA".

This rational determination has not kept hordes of the great unwashed from elevating these products to a status well beyond their natural position in the beverage marketplace. A position that I believe lies more in fetish than actual value.

Thus, Fetish Beer.

Some disagree with me.

I'll happily accept reasonable evidence the Fetish Beer fad is anything greater than just that.

Bring on the flights.

This was just posted on Vintage San Diego's FB page- pretty cool if you're into that sort of thing.

I realize BC has not yet heard of FB.

"That would be great BUT I think most of us would want to kick your ass first before cocktails.."

But, once we got over that hurdle, a meet might be pleasent.

As long as there's no loud music, TV screens, Fetish Beer, screaming WooHoos or sub-standard food.

Ah!

You are correct, ECB not West Main.

Was Magnolia Mulvaneys the Country Western iteration of Mulvaney's?

Who's familiar with 'old' San Diego restaurants?

Probably not.

As I'm far younger than you, I was not allowed access to SpeedeeMart.

We did ride bikes to Monte Vista Ranch where there was a Coke machine in the stables into which a good portion of my lawnmowing money went.

I was not.

Our family fled EC in 1971.

Our family was insufficiently posh to enjoy neither Mt. Helix (Fuerte Farms) nor a restaurant for pancakes (we can get pancakes at home!)

Yes Krishna Mulvaneys was I believe shortened to Mulvaneys, and there may have been a perfectly good Springfield in EC, but I wouldn't know.

However.

The Name Family did occasionally enjoy a Sunday morning drive thru the donut shop on West Main Street with the crazy motorized four-dot sign.

Mulvaneys in Santee.

Springfield in Kearny Mesa- I worked at a nearby car dealership.

I remember this a little differently- I believe Butcher Shop took over the Springfield space?

Solare - Tasting Menus

Call Solare and ask for Randy (owner) or Petra, they understand hospitality very well, and I'm confident they'd be happy to help.

Chianina.

But I consider ourselves fortunate that Honk chooses to write so much and so well, so I didn't want to pick nits with him.

Solare - Tasting Menus

Nope. Just asked for a tasting menu and was offered 4-8 courses.

We also paired wine, which was good.

I skipped the seafood extravaganza- one of the few of its type I've regretted missing.

Not that I could see.

And that's all that matters.

Oh- almost forgot.

NO MUSIC in the main dining area.

None.

Just quiet conversation- hushed and peaceful.

Solare - Tasting Menus

Ok!

Made it there last night, and yes, it's as good as HerrHonkman claims.

Go there. It was a Saturday evening and there were too many empty tables- it's undiscovered and unappreciated so far.

Ours was a 5 course tasting (we, more civilized than Honk, sat at a table) and only one of our courses match what Honky had- so they are truly making this up on the fly.

Go there.

And those publications create "best of" lists generated by polling, which results in the "most popular" which is often something less than the "best".

Yours is great.

Except for the "BBQ".

And the pizza.
