Trip Report Quick trip to San Diego

Jump to last reply

I just got back from a quick business trip to San Diego.

Flew out Wed September 12 from Hartford. It was a non-eventful flight through Minneapolis. Got into Lindbergh and got my bag. Was surprised how much construction is going on and it was chaos making my way to the shuttle bus to Avis. Got through it and got my rental car fairly quickly.

Immediately drove to the Gaslamp District. Walked around for a little while eventually having a few drinks at Dick's Last Resort before heading to Petco Park for the Padres game. I really enjoy Petco and have been to numerous games. It was a close fought win for the Padres. I enjoyed a couple of beers here. Sat 3 rows off of the field behind the Cardinals bullpen.

After the game, I headed to Kansas City Barbeque for dinner. This is where they filmed the bar scenes for Top Gun. Decent dinner and really enjoyed some of the artifacts.

Headed to my hotel after the game and checked in, I always stay at the Bay CLub as we get a great rate and its a great location.

Worked all day Thursday. The weather was extremely hot all week so it was brutal to be outside. I met a former coworker for dinner at Brigantines on Shelter Island for Happy Hour. Great beer selection and amazing fish tacos.

After dinner, I headed back ro the hotel as the Doobie Brothers were playing at Humphreys. I got a great spot on the patio at the Bay CLub and listened to the entire concert. Lots of fun

Worked a half day Friday then went to the Zoo. Not usually one to head to Zoos late in the day, I wasnt sure what to expect. I immediately did the bus tour and enjoyed this. Then took the Sky Ride to the back of the Zoo and the Polar Bears. The 2 of them were wrestling and a lot of fun to watch. I then followed a path back towards the front through Elephant Odyssey. Really enjoy this new exhibit. SInce it was extremely hot, I took my time knowing I was not going to see the whole zoo. Got back to the front and went over to the reptiles. After this I split as it was getting too hot. Headed back to the hotel and changed.

Headed to the Fish Market for dinner. This is a must for me in San Diego. Got a table out on the patio over looking the harbor. Got some great pictures of sunsets over the Aircraft Carriers. Had the Crab and Artichoke DIp for an appetizer. Then I had the Fijian Yellowtail Tuna for dinner. Excellent meal and one of my favorites. Sat here for a while due to location and atmosphere.

Flew back Saturday with non-eventful flights through Minneapolis.

Bay Club is a great hotel. They have renovated all of their rooms over the past few years and is in a great location. The buffet is free in the mornings and always replenished quickly. All of the employees are great and willing to help.
