A: Via twitter from pro-user & Gogobot advocate from San Francisco, Rhia Reyes @lehea1212!
Q: What inspires you to use Gogobot on a regular basis?
A: I enjoy reading the reviews & day-dreaming as I look through the amazing postcards. I love getting exposed to restaurants that I’ve never heard of. Yup, I’m a total foodie!
Q: What San Diego spots (in the following categories) would you recommend to a tourist/out-of-towner?
A1: JRDN at Tower23, you’re practically on the beach! I love their ceviche tacos, burgers and raspberry mojitos!
A2: The Park Hyatt Aviara Resort in Carlsbad, classy, all-inclusive resort, nice for a quiet, relaxing weekend!
A3: Balboa Park, the architecture and history is so rich. Wonderful museums, trails, and festivals are held at Balboa Park. I still continue to find new nooks and crannies when I’m exploring.
A4: Del Mar, away from the main drag on 15th street. Great surf spot, sand is fairly clean and not so crowded.
Q5: Night Out?
A5: Fluxx, this club always impresses. They push the envelope with constant theme changes often and they offer great entertainment (or eye candy ;).
Q6: First Date?
A6: Little Italy is a great place for a first date! You can start the evening with cocktails or wine at the many restaurants, head to another charming spot for dinner with classic dim lighting, and then head to a family-owned shop for dessert. It’s romantic, and full of culture.
A7: Garnet Street in Pacific Beach, a lot of local businesses and fun boutiques!
