Well, That Was Awkward

A nightmare on University Avenue

The Elfin Forest, Questhaven and satanic ritual spots are no match for terrors in North Park

By Ryan Bradford
Craig Oliver was the first person I approached to show me genuinely scary places in San Diego. I'm not talking about touristy haunts like The Whaley House or the Hotel Del, but places of legend that don't require an admission fee, places that people go out of their way to avoid.

A ‘real’ Mormon’s reaction to ‘The Book of Mormon’

Spooky hell, urine baptisms and other memories exorcised by the Broadway play

By Ryan Bradford
A real Mormon. The term seared in the part of my brain that hasn't been contaminated by vices, the section that will persevere no matter how much nudity, booze and horror I cram in there.

Craft beer and loathing

Trying to prove my worth with the boozy elite at the Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Festival

By Ryan Bradford
I like beer as much as the next functioning alcoholic, but sometimes San Diego's craft scene feels like the veiny blob at the end of Akira—encompassing and swallowing everything in its path.
