San Diego Happy Half Hour Podcast: Episode 108

Lola 55 opens in the East Village, a new weekly market debuts by the bay, and Cowboy Star’s Angie Weber drops by with Wagyu beef jerky


Published:

In today’s episode of the Happy Half Hour, Erin, Troy and Archana are discussing Lola 55’s opening in the East Village, a new Mexican restaurant in Coronado, authentic Filipino in Miramar, and Lane Field Park Markets, the new weekly market on downtown’s North Harbor Drive featuring food, drink, and art.

In the guest seat we have Angie Weber, co-owner of Cowboy Star Restaurant and Butcher Shop. She talks to us about how she and her husband never intended to open a steakhouse, the lengths they go to get good quality meat (it involves animal science expert Temple Grandin), and their latest venture—beef jerky. Plus, she gives us the scoop on changes coming to the restaurant.

Today’s hot topic is about what it takes (or how little it takes) to call an item “organic.”

We end with Two People/$50, including Mitch’s Seafood, Venissimo Cheese, Hanna’s Gourmet, Harvest by The Patio, Cucina Sorella, Beshock Ramen, Lotus Thai, and Pamela’s Kitchen Table.

And did you hear? San Diego Magazine has launched its Insiders club, offering exclusive discounts at editor-picked restaurants, bars, spas, and more for just $10 per month. That’s right—it’ll cost you less than happy hour.

This week we are sponsored by the San Diego Symphony. It's not too late to experience San Diego's best concert venue, Bayside Summer Nights. The summer season concludes with the 1812 Tchaikovsky Spectacular with fireworks! Enjoy your picnic, great music, a beautiful setting, and fireworks over the bay to say goodbye to Summer in style. Tickets at sandiegosymphony.org.
