Oldie and newbies

Let our Hit List guide your nighttime activities

By Alex Zaragoza
It’s always exciting when a new bar or nightclub opens. Even though our old stand-by bars fit like the worn-out pajama pants we’ve had since college, those same pajamas sometimes make us look like a slob.

Beer me a cool evening

Let our Hit List guide your nighttime activities

By Alex Zaragoza
CityBeat headquarters is not air-conditioned. The sweltering heat leads us sweaty staffers to daydream about swimming in refreshing pools, drinking pints of frosty beer and writing our stories with our pants off in front of a fan in the privacy of our homes.

A little razzle-jazzle

Let our Hit List guide your nighttime activities

By Alex Zaragoza
San Diego’s jazz scene is surprisingly poppin’. I say “surprisingly” because whenever I think of jazz, or, rather, good jazz, I imagine it happening in cool underground nightclubs full of cigarette smoke and old men drinking scotch.

Come on, get happy

Let our Hit List guide your nighttime activities

By Alex Zaragoza
I know that it’s all about craft or vintage cocktails nowadays. Cocktail snobs get a big ol’ boner drinking a concoction made from a recipe found in a book printed in 1845.

Fiesta time

Let our Hit List guide your nighttime activities

By Alex Zaragoza
