Hillcrest San Diego

3754 5th Avenue, San Diego, CA, United States
7 reviews

Aside from being LGBT-friendly, I love Hillcrest because it is one of the more walkable neighborhoods in San Diego. One could easily get there from Balboa Park and see many local boutiques and restaurants.

    Billed as a wine bar this place has a little bit of everything. Half the place has sandwhiches and cakes and then on the other side there is a bar. They do brunch on the weekends and are always PACKED on Sundays.

    The popcorn was delicious because they had amazing seasoning. I poured that stuff on like there was no tomorrow. I think they had RANCH flavoring, PARMESAN flavoring, JALAPENO flavoring, and two others. The guy I went with didn't want to try any of it. But I went to town on them and the BUTTER and trying all that flavoring was ...

    When I got there it was around 7 pm on a Wednesday and there were a few dozen people. It was a very chill atmosphere. Our group was in the pool table corner and everyone else sat around the bar area. Amanda G bought me a gin and tonic. It was only $2 that night! Some nice pre-party mingling and ...

    Mint Shoes

    1 review

    Mint is a big hit with this guy. I know shoes, and have a great love for them. Shoes are just damn sexy. No two ways about it. It's really about the shoes and the watch. What can you know about someone from just their shoes... and... their watch? A lot I contend. Call me old school, fine, but it's ...

    The zoo is pretty neat. It is located on the north / west side of Balboa Park. Little kids and big kids love the zoo. October is kids month and I think kids get in for free. The zoo is very hilly and there is lots of walking. It can get quite warm in the summer, so it is best ...

    After driving all over San Diego looking for the top mid-century modern furniture shop, Atomic Bazaar was one of our faves. Inhabiting the vintage Egyptian Theatre, this friendly reseller has value-priced pieces if you're a Danish Modern design freak. Don't see what you're looking for? Ask to see if they maybe have it in stock at the off-site warehouse. High ...

    One of the advantages of living in San Diego is UCSD research. There are four locations to get the Early Test, which can detect HIV infection as early as one week after exposure. While tradition HIV testing like the Rapid Test detects HIV by detecting antibodies, the Early Test detects infection by detecting the virus. One can get both tests ...

    Because I'm a terrible parallel parker, I go to events and dates way head of time and have to find ways to amuse myself. I amused myself for an hour or so in this store. I flipped through gardening books. Looked at nick-nacks (candles, soaps, plants, fountains, household decorations/decor, etc.). It's not your normal hardware store. It's a HILLCREST hardware ...

    I love taking Corepower classes; the Hillcrest studio is not the biggest but it has fantastic teachers and parking isn't at tough as some other locations. The classes offered are for all levels. Membership is a huge perk for savings if you are an avid yogi, plus you can visit any studio in San Diego (there are many!). If you ...

    We came here on a whim because we didn't feel like leaving San Diego yet to go back to the OC. Parking was a bit difficult, since there was Earth Day fair going on at Balboa Park next door but we eventually found one close by :) We didn't do the indoor tour and had fun walking around the gardens ...
