Spotlight on 30th St.

The 30th St. corridor running through central San Diego is known for its wonderfully quirky and interesting independent restaurants and bars. How better to publicize what's happening in the area than with a website and blog. The new site is 30thstreet.org.

So, what's up? Just starting in January is a monthly event called 30th on 30th. The Linkery's Jay Porter explains that on the 30th of each month -- okay, it'll be on the 28th in February -- various restaurants and bars on or near 30th St. will offer specials, such as a feature appetizer for $2. Participating restaurants this month include Alchemy, The Station, The Linkery, Urban Solace, The Whistle Stop, Ritual Tavern, Jayne's Gastropub, and Sea Rocket Bistro.

Also on the website is information about who's serving local craft brew and cask conditioned ale, which places have sunny patios, who serves lunch or late nite eats or breakfast. It's a great micro resource for a very popular up-and-coming neighborhood.
