Who is Slo Mo?

Posted by Thepacificbeach.com on Friday, October 3, 2014,
Every resident knows of Slow ("Slo") Mo in Pacific Beach. He is that graceful rollerblader who always wears a blue tank or shirt. He skates to classical music out loud and does slow motion. However, not everyone knows that he was a doctor who lived in a North Carolina. He is divorced and has grown kids and now lives simply and does what he loves all day. Check out our facebook to see the full video of his interview: https://facebook.com/thepacificbeach. It is inspiring.

Moondoggies is no more and it feels like an end of an era

Posted by ThePacificBeach.com on Sunday, March 2, 2014, In : Pub Crawls 
I had a lot of memories at Moondoggies. It was one of my go to spots when I was 21 years old and a senior at SDSU. I associate Moondoggies with my college years and the few years after it. Well, it's now closed and new businesses like Duck Dive prosper and take more of the market share. Who can blame them? They have great food and sit really close to the water. 

To me, it feels like it's an end to my era. I am no longer that 20 something year old and those memories are only in mind with no phy...

Labor Day weekend at Typhoon Saloon in Pacific Beach

Posted by ThePacificBeach.com on Sunday, September 8, 2013, In : Pub Crawls 
I went to Typhoon Saloon in Pacific Beach for Labor Day weekend with 16 other people. We wanted to do some catching up with our friends so we decided to meet at 7pm there. There was a lot of room for us and the place was quiet enough for us to hear each other without yelling. The clubbing crowd doesn't come until 10pm. A lot of people don't know this but Typhoon Saloon also serves Fred's menu so if you want more TV screens and a more casual eating room, go there. We ended up staying until pas...

There will always be the 30 something year old crowd in Pacific Beach. We don't want to grow up.

Posted by ThePacificBeach.com on Thursday, August 29, 2013,
The first time I moved to Pacific Beach, I was 23 years old. I graduated from SDSU the year prior and finally had the money from a full time job to really go out at the bars and live it up. I went to a lot of happy hours and a lot of late night bars for the next few years. It was really hard to save money when you're going out all the time and the bars were only steps away from my door but who cares?

Back then, I remember that I would run into 30 something year olds and wonder what were they t...

California Kebab & Beer Garden in Pacific Beach (great beach view)

Posted by ThePacificBeach.com on Sunday, June 3, 2012,
We went to the newly opened California Kebab & Beer Garden in Pacific Beach last night and we were so impressed. The very first time I went to the Promenade shopping center was when I was a teenager eating Hawaiian food on the rooftop. Eight years later, this place is now a very cool place to drink and eat kebabs. Our plate of food included sirloin, salmon and shrimp kebabs. We got free tasters before we bought the beers we wanted and enjoyed the view of the ocean with some great friends.

Mission Bay Pet Salon & Wash - Cass St. - Great place to wash your dog

Posted by ThePacificBeach.com on Friday, February 24, 2012,
pacific beach We have a dog and he loves going to dog parks and Fiesta Island to meet and wrestle with other dogs. Every time we do take him to Fiesta Island to play, he gets really dirty from the water and dirt. We always have to give him a wash after that.

We really like to take Bernie, our half chow chow, half Australian shepherd, to Mission Bay Pet Salon & Wash to get him washed. It's self-service but they have all the shampoos and equipment there that helps keep your pets calm and still while you was...

Getting parking tickets in Pacific Beach is $52.50 now

Posted by ThePacificBeach.com on Wednesday, February 1, 2012,
This is the second time in the last 1.5 months that I've gotten a parking ticket. I pretty much dumped $105 down the drain, now that it costs $52.50 for one now.

I've lived in PB on and off for 5 years and I've probably paid 4 times to the city for this. Outrageous for being a PB resident. That would be 4 nights out of fun gone! Beware guys. Watch out for the signs. They will get you. I wish there could be a limit or cap if you live here so that I don't hit the $500's some day as my total loss.

Tourism Etiquette for Pacific Beach from your local resident

Posted by ThePacificBeach.com on Monday, January 9, 2012,
Pacific Beach is known to have a lot of visitors, tourists to be exact, visiting us every day. What pains me is when they are very rude or have no respect for residents who actually LIVE here and are a part of their experience.

Not everyone who walks around in PB is a tourist but there is a lot. I'm a native San Diegan and Pacific Beach is my home. Here are some suggested etiquette, if you don't mind reading on.

1. Please don't make fun of 'Slo Mo'. He is our favorite rollerblader who blades t...

Pet-friendly restaurants in Pacific Beach (PB)

Posted by ThePacificBeach.com on Monday, August 22, 2011, In : pet friendly 
Pacific Beach is a place where there are sunny skies and beautiful restaurants to dine at. However, not all restaurants are pet-friendly. You wish they would be as pets play such a great part in our lives. Here are my favorite places to bring my puppy:

976 Cafe - You can bring the dog if you're eating outside. They'll bring the menu to you on the weekends. They have a lot of trees and you'll see that other people bring their dogs here too. They are known for great coffee, salads, breakfast and...

Things about Pacific Beach bars that are different from other cities.

Posted by ThePacificBeach.com on Monday, April 25, 2011,
A lot of visitors come here and they get shocked about San Diego and mainly about Pacific Beach bars and how the nightlife operates here.

Here are some things to be prepared for if this is your first time traveling to Pacific Beach.

1. Bars close early here. San Diego is not allowed to serve alcohol and operate with people with drinks after 2am so they usually try to get everybody out around 1:30 am and last call is earlier than that. I know, early. People always get so surprised because San Di...

Here's the top bars to go to watch the Aztec games in Pacific Beach
