George’s at the Cove
Very simply, George’s at the Cove is for people who believe in enjoying the San Diego lifestyle to its fullest. And that includes a great meal. If you want to experience innovative, contemporary food at its peak of freshness, a memorable evening awaits at California Modern, featuring an ever-changing menu from one of San Diego’s most admired chefs, Trey Foshee. If you’re in the mood for a casual bistro menu and the region’s best rooftop dining, try the Ocean Terrace upstairs. And George’s Bar, on the middle level, offers a relaxed setting where the indoors and outdoors flow together.

This year we started local, then made our way to Los Angeles for some amazing meals. Read More »
My wife, Paula, and I are drawn to the unusual in our travel tastes. Part of our joy in this process is observing how other cultures exist around the world. In the past we have visited many countries including India, Bhutan, Cambodia, Peru, Laos, Zimbabwe and Namibia. What all these destinations have in common is that they are profoundly different from life here in the U.S. All these past adventures led us to choose Morocco as a part of a broader trip to Europe this past May.
