The Public House, La Jolla Celebrates 4 Years!

January 17, 2015 Leave a comment


Are you a beer lover? A burger lover?

Well The Public House, La Jolla, more than meets those expectations!

This hidden gem is located in Downtown La Jolla, in San Diego, in a remodeled historic house from 1904, making it quite charming.

With a rotating 35+ beers on tap, and an ever growing bottle list of around 400 beers, this spot is a craft beer lover’s dream!  Can’t afford a trip to Belgium?  You can take a tour of it through the pages of Belgian beers they have available!  From a world scale, to a local scale, The Public House has you covered!   They are even sister to local brewery, Acoustic Ales Brewing Experiment!

But the fun doesn’t stop there.

Their burgers will leave you wanting more, and at the same time, not wanting more:  Burgers are stacked with toppings atop a half pound patty, that will leave your stomachs so full.  And there is a variety of delicious styles to try, that you couldn’t possibly try all in one sitting.  From spicy to simple, from top grade Angus Beef to exotic meats you’ve never even thought of trying in a burger before!  Example?  Aside from Bison, Lamb, and New Zealand Kobe being on the regular menu, they will surprise you with special burgers such as Elk, Venison, Rabbit, Alligator, Camel, Kangaroo, and more!!!   Definitely for those with an adventurous palate!!  Tuesdays are a great time to try their burgers too, with a 2 for 1 Happy Hour on select burgers.  Or, try one of their many appetizers at half off on Wednesday through Friday from 3-6pm!

At the end of this month, The Public House will be celebrating it’s 4 year anniversary, from January 29th-February 1st.   They will be tapping some pretty cool stuff including Goose Island’s “Bourbon County Stout” & “Bourbon County Barley Wine”.

We will keep you updated, for more to come!!

So stop in for the fun: where great people, great food, and great BEER exist!!!

Ever dreamt about living a luxurious life? From exotic cars to private jets and beautiful get aways? You might not have the time or means to make it a lifestyle but how about for a weekend or even just a day? At Symbolic Concierge you can do just that. Or, want to find the perfect way to purpose to your girlfriend? They have a great package for that, as well as packages from birthdays to bachelor parties, to anniversaries. From personal experience, I took a day to see what this company is all about and found myself aboard a beautiful mega yacht and then after being a-cruise for a couple hours, flying over beautiful San Diego on a private helicopter that took off from this yacht. Seeing the Pacific sunset in this setting was one of the best moment of my simple life. The customer service is exquisite as well.

“It’s About Time” – Give to V.O.I.C.E.S.

December 12, 2009 Leave a comment

Ever wonder what happens to foster kids once they reach 18?

Here’s a quick glimpse of some previous statistics:
-65%  find themselves without a place to live
-by the age of 19, only 57% will have received a high school diploma or GED
-less than 50% are employed 2.5-4 years after leaving foster care
-56% are reported using hard drugs
-50% suffer from chronic health conditions
-” Over 70% of all California State Penitentiary inmates have spent time in the foster care system.”
(These and more statistics can be found on the V.O.I.C.E.S. website.)

V.O.I.C.E.S., which stands for Voice Our Individual Choices for Emancipation Support, was founded in November of 2005, and has been helping these youth find jobs, homes, and helping them during their transition out of foster care.
To continue to help these youth however, V.O.I.C.E.S. needs your help.  $15,000 must be raised by the end of this year!

Watch this video, then learn a little more about V.O.I.C.E.S. and what they do for these youth, and how you can help.

V.O.I.C.E.S. Mission statement: “V.O.I.C.E.S. is a community based organization that exists to empower, love, and support under-served Napa County youth transitioning from systems of care.” 

V.O.I.C.E.S. also has a new center in Sonoma, located in Santa Rosa, CA, which opened its doors in April 2009 as an expansion of V.O.I.C.E.S Napa.
“V.O.I.C.E.S. Sonoma exists to provide a supportive, safe, and non-judgemental community where transition-aged youth from all systems of care can utilize peer based resources, feel connected, and build a foundation for their futures.” (Mission statement of V.O.I.C.E.S. Sonoma).

Pipe Dreams Hookah Lounge, the new spot in Corona, CA! – Updates

August 17, 2009 7 comments

*Updates at bottom*

Let’s face it, you’re in Corona on a Wednesday night, maybe even a Friday night, and just can’t find anything to do. This is Corona, what is there to do other than go to the movies or T.G.I.Friday’s? And come on, that gets old after awhile.

Well Corona has what it has been waiting for!

The new kick-it spot, coming to you soon!  PIPE DREAMS Hookah Shop

Currently, while awaiting the grand opening, there are promotion nights, to give you a feel of what to expect. 

As soon as you walk in you see the first of many paintings on the walls. Every wall has something different. From graffiti to that tattoo look.  There are many artists that have contributed to the artwork.  You won’t find any hookah shop designed like this place.  When you walk in there is the front you will notice to the left FML clothing line products pinned up to the wall. As you walk through the hall to the right, the first door is the main room. Equipped with big projector screens and futon sofas everywhere, you are set to kick back and enjoy yourself while you smoke some hookah. The music selection is great from Transplants to Lil John, to much more, that you will never fall asleep.

Continuing past the main room, the next door to your right is the V.I.P. Lounge.  Become a regular, or be a homie, and you could be chillen in here with your buds.  You will find another projector screen, more seating, a stripper pole, and it is said to have a pool table coming as well.  It’s a little more private for you and your friends if you don’t want to deal with other Corona folk.   Don’t be afraid to even wonder over to where the bathrooms are.  Take a look in the mirror between the two restrooms and notice the wall that is behind you…I won’t spoil it, go check it out yourself!

Now let’s get down to why you came here other than to kick it: the hookah.  Tobacco is provided by the Fantasia Hookah company, and you will find yourself choosing from many different flavors of some of the freshest hookah tobacco and hydro.  What hookah shop sells hydro?  You must try hydro at least once on one of your visits, you won’t be disappointed.  With quirky names like “Sweet Virgin” to just your normal flavors like raspberry lemonade, you’ll definately find a flavor to your tongues liking.  The hookahs hit really well, and the coal people are very efficient at meeting your coal needs.  It does not take long for your hookahs to come out either, unlike other places where you are waiting sometimes fifteen minutes before anything is brought to you. 

During promotion nights, hookahs are $10 each, and $5 for refills.  After opening expect hookahs to go up to $12, but it is still the same price, better quality, better service, than any other hookah shop you’ll go to.

Wi-Fi is supposed to be available too, so if ya feel like really hanging out for awhile, bring in your laptop, or need to study but need that hookah break, you are set.

Oh and if you are lucky, you will find the awesome owner, Josh, or Chuckie as he often goes by, jamming on his drumset in the little spare room located next to the V.I.P. Lounge.  You can’t miss him, he’s a tall white boy covered in tattoos.  And what is a cool place without cool owners? You will also see the other owner, Amanda walking around everyday. These two have worked very hard to open this place up, and dealing with different issues the city throws at them every week, are determined to open shop as soon as possible.

Look at August for the grand opening folks.  Expect to see a stunt show by some Rough Ryders/Stunt Farm, which your lovely owner Josh was also a part of.

So spread the news, and if you have time, just swing by the shop and check it out.  Or you can go to their site:

The day has come! Friday, August 21st comes the grand opening of Pipe Dreams!
Expect the pool table that is already up, as well as two stripper poles and black lights. VIP room is done and being rented out already, so get your spots today!
Carpet has been torn out, and floors painted, the final look change you probably did not expect.
Expect something spectacular for the grand opening. Something along the lines of stunt riders, members of bands you all love, and of course great hookah.
So gather your friends and plan on being at Pipe Dreams on Friday night! It’ll be the most epic night ever!
