San Diego’s not just sandy eggos

Anyone in the know realizes the best of most everything is in San Diego proper, not the outskirts. But I will say I’m really glad to see URBANIST guide return for a 2nd print issue. For those unfamiliar to the name and game, it’s a handy fold out guide to SD’s hippest restaurants, boutiques, galleries, salons, bars and nightlife (heavily focused on the independent spots). And I’m huge on that because independent business owners are the people loving their work and working their love the hardest. The guide’s also perfect for visitors looking to avoid the tourist traps and even as a local I always find out about a few cool places I’ve overlooked.
