The Right Brew

What a fun issue we have this month! Coffee and beer here – two of my favorites. We hope you enjoy our round-up on some of the best spots to get your daily buzz – coffee is so much more than a drink…it’s a connection. Meeting an old friend, celebrating family, a new client that could be growth for your business or just a moment of zen to start your day.

It has been a long anticipated opening – Viewpoint Brewing brings Good Beer to Del Mar starting this summer and we take an in-depth look at this amazing space. Food, fun and local beer…welcome to Del Mar! My family and I have already been to Viewpoint many times and we love the atmosphere, the beer and the food. I recommend you try the wings with the rub.

One of my absolute favorite places to grab a cocktail after a long day is L’Auberge Del Mar. The ambiance, the staff and the view are all world-class. The amazing bar staff shared with us some of their cocktail recipes from their ever-rotating cocktail menu.

Finally – the countdown clocks are getting closer to 00:00:00 for the highly anticipated Breeders’ Cup World Championships. We welcome this event next month but all month-long, people and the town will be gearing up. The week prior to the races is the Breeders’ Cup Festival with many events taking place throughout town and at the special event space called the Barn at the Beach which will be constructed at Powerhouse Park. This is an exciting time, Del Mar!

See you around town,
