In today’s Happy Half Hour, hosts Erin Chambers Smith and Troy Johnson, along with producer Archana Ram are chatting about restaurant news, like a new cocktail shop in North Park and a collaboration between Regents Pizzeria and Mastiff Sausage Company that will benefit the charity No Kid Hungry. Plus, we tell you why you have to visit Polite Provisions before Christmas.

Today’s guest is Stephen Kurpinsky, spirits and beer director at Level2, the hip cocktail-focused bar at George’s at the Cove. He’s telling us about his new project that involves developing drinks based on San Diego neighborhoods, like an OB cocktail with hemp.
