Home to the San Diego Padres, Gaslamp's PETCO Park is one of the most distinctive features in downtown San Diego. Concrete walls separate the rest of the city from it's major league baseball players, where every summer hundreds of fans from all over the country come out to show their support for the blue and gold (officially "sand"). Just outside the massive doors are some of Gaslamp's most lively bars and nightclubs, perfect for before or after game drinks, while inside fans nosh on Friar Franks, beer and peanuts. In true San Diego fashion, the cheap seats offer up families and big parties grass seats, while kayakers can often be spotted catching the wide screen from the adjacent ocean.

The newest addition to downtown San Diego is Quality Social, an upscale bar and restaurant that serves both drinks and locally grown dishes late into the evening. Right in the heart of San Diego's Gaslamp district, the venue offers outdoor seating for the summer months and an expansive space filled with two bars, booths and a VIP room. Unique entrees fill the menu that serves up everything from hot dogs and grilled cheese to hamburgers with fried eggs and Portuguese fish. While it tries to steer clear of the typical upscale bar in downtown, most notably without a cover charge, Quality Social still maintains an upscale feature ideal for downtown lovers.

If you want to experience a piece of Italy, look no where else in San Diego than Mama Mia's - owned by local Italians, this Pacific Beach treasure was once a local secret and has since expanded to the area's favorite Italian destination. Upon entering you'll be greeted by a loud and boistorous crew of "fresh off the boat" Italians who loved food just as much as you do. Owned and operated by the husband and wife - the husband who will greet you with a warm Italian welcome while the wife works away in the kitchen - is just the local flavor Pacific Beach needs more of. From fresh pastas of ravioli, lasagna- a small corkage fee for bringing in your own bottle, salads and meat entrees, you'll never leave without a fresh feeling of Italy.
