This week we got to take a tour of Fresco Pizzeria in Torrey Highlands community just off the 56. Fresco is a New York Style Pizzeria with some great pizza, appetizers and even better happy hour. It also has a great patio where kids can play and adults can enjoy their food and drink. It has been a big part of the community for many years as they are involved in a lot of school fundraisers and charities. The manager Brannon, gave us a quick tour of the restaurant and even let us taste a few new dishes that hit the menu.
The Merge 56 Project was unanimously approved by San Diego City Council today. The project has been in the works for many years and has gone through many changes but today the project received praise from government officials and the public (at least most of the public😉)
The project hopes to begin construction this year with a completion date in either 2020-2021. As I get more concrete information I will pass it on.
The center will contain a mix of restaurants, retail, movie theatre and grocery store in addition to residential housing and office space. It will be a walkable vibrant shopping center as opposed to your typical big-box shopping centers that have been slowly dying in my opinion.
The project will also connect Camino Del Sur to the neighborhood of Park Village.
Carmel Mountain preschool is located in Rancho Penasquitos which is a Suburb located about 25 mins north of downtown San Diego. It's also where my son Aiden goes to preschool. When we first moved to the area we toured many preschools and we were quickly impressed with everything the school had to offer. They put a large emphasis on the outdoor classroom which really keeps the kids engaged and excited about learning.
I had the pleasure of interviewing Virginia Morrison, Renaissance Woman, at Second Chance Beer Company in Carmel Mountain Ranch. She tells us a little about where the name comes from and what makes Second Chance different from the many other breweries in San Diego. It's not just a name for them, it's a mission!
Last month I got the opportunity to interview Heather Ross, Operations Manager, at Breakfast Republic in Pacific Highlands Ranch. We had some great food and even better coffee. If you haven't made a trip there yet, I highly recommend checking it out as it's a welcome addition to the area.
Highlighting the Torrey Meadows Park in the San Diego neighborhood of Torrey Highlands. The park is located on Torrey Meadows Drive just behind Westview High School. The park was delayed about 5 months due to the rains we had over the winter.
