FOOD: Salt & Cleaver

Great newish eatery in Hillcrest that fills a certain niche in the San Diego culinary scene. Sausage. Delicious, juicy, flavorful sausage. It makes perfect sense why there haven't really been many brat places in the past, considering our city's love of all things 'healthy.' Nevertheless, I'm sure this place will find a happy home as a refreshing alternative to the mighty burger. Salt & Cleaver is very German, down to the decor, which is sleek, geometric, and very clean. We really don't even need to mention a very satisfying beer selection (you can't be a half-decent SD restaurant without it!) A great choice for a casual bite before seeing a film at the Landmark. We will definitely be visiting this place a lot more when the weather cools down.


MUST WATCH/LISTEN: Ruby the Rabbitfoot - Coffee & Honey

The only way to survive this heat is to aim any and all fans at your face, pour yourself a glass of lemonade, and watch and listen to this video.

Coffee & Honey : Ruby the Rabbitfoot from ruby rabbitfoot on Vimeo.

This video does a remarkably impressive job of depicting exactly how my body and mind feel in this oppressive heat.  I'll have this on repeat until Autumn, and perhaps well beyond...
