Growing up, some of my favorite memories of my father were in the backyard, grilling out on endless Summer nights – not a care in the world, enjoying a freshly prepared meal with friends in the neighborhood. A steady stream of family would come by for some conversation and to unwind. This month, we celebrate that same spirit with our Men’s Issue…of course, even though the focus is on the guys, it is my wife’s attention to detail and finding great local stories to share that brings this month to life.
We hope you enjoy this month’s issue as we feature an amazing backyard adventure into barbecue. We discover the old fashioned barber shop, just like where my father took me as a boy, is alive and well at V’s. No Men’s Issue would be complete without a look at our local beer scene and where you can stop in to kick back with a brew. Plus, we get to know one of our newer friends and neighbors here in town – Bunny from Made In Earth in the Del Mar Plaza.
Remember to check out our Father’s Day gift idea guide this month and you don’t have to wait until Father’s Day to enjoy some of the best golfing in the world, right here in our backyard, as we spotlight some of the premium private country clubs in North County as well as some of the most exclusive resort hotel courses that will make you feel a world away even though you are minutes from home.
Here’s to Summer – It’s been a busy Spring as you can see from all the events we recap for you to start our June issue. Fair season is upon us again and there is so much to see and do this month. We hope to see you at the Del Mar Village Summer Solstice coming up soon!
A few of my favorite things I am looking forward to this June:
Spending time with my daughter Sidney and playing golf at some of our beautiful courses here in Del Mar.
Hanging out with my son Sam, checking out cars at fun events. More pictures in the recaps in our Good Times.
Enjoying weekends with my family and friends, grilling in the backyard, prepping some of the recipes from this issue!
