1. Mr. Nice Guy
Madison on Park has made cannabis cocktails a thing. Don’t expect to get high drinking Mr. Nice Guy —it’s merely flavored with non-psychoactive cannabidiol oil. But what a killer twist to a mezcal cocktail made with matcha, pineapple, coconut milk and lime.
2. The Walker
Local group Bird Bath got miniature for the simple yet damn near perfect retro video concept for their jangly pop tune The Walker. Another band worth watching for fans of singer Gary Hankins.
3. Salt & Whiskey
Horton Grand Hotel refashioned its bar and restaurant into the single concept Salt & Whiskey, boasting over 600 whiskies and a bevy of delicious cocktails. Honestly, we’d visit the Gaslamp’s most elegant destination for its vintage charm, regardless what’s pouring!
4. Soi 30th
North Park got a tasty new Thai spot this month. In addition to great rice, noodle, and curry dishes, the place offers unique fusion twists like a Thai Burger involving coconut milk! Even better, check out the rad art work!
5. Crushing It
Our favorite Cohort Collective cohorts Carly Ealey and Christopher Konecki teamed up on this sizzling mural at Park and J Street. Catch Carly live-painting a new permanent mural at the Del Mar Fairgrounds during Kaaboo in September!
