Bacon has managed to establish quite the cult-like following, adding an odd but delicious twist to everyday foods. From chocolate covered bacon to bacon ice cream, this food item has become the new “must have” ingredient. This year, locals and visitors can celebrate its greasy goodness at the Big Bite Bacon Fest at the San Diego Fair.

On July 5th, guests will have the chance to taste all sorts of bacon dishes at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. There are two separate tasting events, the first from noon to 3 pm and the second 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm. This event is expecting bacon dishes from up to 40 restaurants and celebrity cooks from the San Diego area and further afield. The beer offerings are coming from about 30 different breweries in the San Diego and Southern California region.

Tickets are available for advance purchase and on the day of the event. General admission tickets include unlimited bacon dish samples and the visitors’ choice of 10 samples of beer that are 3 ounces each. Advance tickets for general admission are $55, while general admission tickets the day of the event are $65. VIP ticket holders get everything available to general admission guests, and they are allowed into the event an hour earlier and have special seating during the event. The cost of these advance VIP tickets is $75 with an additional $10 added for purchases on the day of the event. Piglet and Sober Pig tickets range in price from $45 to $75, depending on the date they are purchased. Piglets and Sober Pigs get the same wonderful selection of bacon featured food, but the ticket does not include the beer samples as they are catered towards the kids and designated drivers in the group.

Other exciting activities at the tasting include interesting bacon-themed games, promising fun for the whole family. Gear up for the 2014 Bacon Fest by booking your hotel near San Diego Bay in Downtown, a great place for post-festival pork dishes.

Guide to Main Street in North Park

marina-inn-north-park-blog

North Park in San Diego went from a run-down residential district to an urban haven for trend setters, young families and professionals alike. The community has been spruced up throughout the years but still hold onto its small town charm, rejecting fast food outlets and similar modern chain stores. North Park is known for revamping old businesses and turning them into something magnificent. For example, the oldest surviving fire station in San Diego – located in North Park – has been transformed and now holds a gym, multiple boutiques, a craft beer tasting room and a wine bar!

North Park Main Street is a Business Improvement District (BID) located northeast of downtown San Diego with one boundary being Balboa Park and the hotels near Balboa Park San Diego. Balboa Park is considered to be the largest urban cultural park in America, which includes several museums and the famous San Diego Zoo. The goal of the BID is to bring new life and vitality to the district and to inspire the owners to restore and maintain the historic and cultural atmosphere.

Most of the main attractions are within a few blocks of 30th Street, which is a very walkable 2.5 mile area. Since the shops usually don’t open until midday, you can spend the earlier hours at the confectionery known as Eclipse Chocolate with its delicious chocolates, delightful coffee creations and eclectic brunch menu.

At lunchtime you might want to try the Carnitas’ Snack Shack with its pork-tastic delicacies or Station Tavern & Burgers, a burger and suds joint.

Later, kindly stop by the trendy new joint called Polite Provisions with cocktails in a bar styled as a pharmacy and soda fountain; or try craft beers and pizza at the uniquely-named Blind Lady Ale House. For dinner, dine at the English-style Jaynes Gastropub for foodie-friendly fare.

The boutiques are amazing. Make Good showcases handmade goods by more than 130 San Diego and Tijuana artisans. Bad Madge & Company and Progress feature vintage and resale furniture and other items including gifts. Junc Life & Style offers Colorado gifts, clothing and home accessories. Graffiti Beach Indie Boutique carries unusual eco-friendly products made in California, such as jewelry made from recycled drum cymbals and bamboo sunglass frames!

For a full day of food, fun and shopping, head to Main Street in North Park. Before heading out on your fun San Diego vacation, book a room at one of the city’s top San Diego Downtown hotels near Little Italy so that you can explore two of the area’s trendiest towns located within 5 miles of each other.

Make Your Own Gaslamp Pub Crawl

marina-pub-crawl-blog

The sixteen and a half block development in downtown San Diego dates back to the mid 1800s when it was the center of “off color” entertainment for sailors and fisherman. Today, the large number of historic buildings have been restored and re-purposed as restaurants, shops and bars. The Gaslamp Quarter has San Diego’s largest concentration of bars, and it’s the ideal place to experience the world famous San Diego nightlife.

You can design your own pub crawl, and experience the best of the Gaslamp all day long. Book your cheap downtown San Diego hotel and be sure to hit up these five bars when planning your DIY Downtown pub crawl:

Need an eye opener? The Star Bar at 423 E Street opens at 6 AM. Often referred to as “the best dive bar in San Diego,” the Star Bar has cheap pours and busy pool tables. The friendly bartenders accept cash only, but there is an ATM on site. This is a great place to talk to bar regulars with colorful stories of “the good ‘ol days.”

The Taste and Thirst probably has the earliest happy hour in San Diego, with bottomless mimosas until 2 PM and a delicious breakfast menu. Their more traditional happy hour runs from 3 PM to 8 PM with half price drinks and half off selected appetizers.

Dick’s Last Resort will provide you with a bar experience like no other. A 3PM – 6PM daily happy hour brings great prices on appetizers, select bottles and drafts. Try the deep fried alligator bites or a bucket of wings. Dick’s, located at 345 5th Avenue, is not for the sensitive type. Servers and staff are known to playfully pick on customers, throw straws and wait tables with sarcastic sense of humor in tow.

A favorite with locals, Hennessey’s at 708 4th Avenue, has a happy hour that runs from 4 PM to 7 PM. A $5 bill can get customers well drinks, wine by the glass, jumbo drafts and their famous Irish coffee. Appetizers are only $5 as well, and they offer a great selection of Buffalo chicken bites, Teriyaki chicken skewers, and meatball sliders. If you’re hungry later, swing back to this location as Hennessey’s has the only kitchen in the Gaslamp open until 1 AM.

Wrap up the night with tequila, tacos, and tunes at La Puerta, at 546 4th Avenue, open until 2 AM daily. Hand crafted cocktails with the freshest ingredients and juices are the pride of La Puerta, and they take the same approach and pride with their food menu which includes street tacos, tortas, burritos, and their very special “Surf and Turf fries.”

No matter your taste in food, beverages, or entertainment, a do-it-yourself pub crawl will give you an insider’s experience of San Diego nightlife. You can either map out your destinations in advance or start at your cheap San Diego convention center hotel and work your way north through Downtown’s 4th and 5th avenues.

For a cheap hotel located near downtown San Diego nightlife, call Marina Inn & Suites at 1-800-571-2933. We offer AAA, AARP and military discounts and have pet-friendly room options for your furry travel companions.

An Insider’s Guide to the 2014 San Diego County Fair

marina-inn-SD-county-fair-blog

Beginning on June 7 and running for nearly a month, the San Diego County Fair delights Southern Californians and visitors alike – and has been an annual attraction since the 1880s. Beginning as a strictly agricultural exhibition space, the fair had different names and locations until settling in at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, where it has remained since 1936.

While plenty of animal and commercial exhibits remain, the emphasis at the Del Mar Fairgrounds is on entertainment, fun and food. The theme this year is “The Fab Fair”, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Beatles arriving in America.

Read these tips to make your San Diego County Fair experience more enjoyable and don’t wait to schedule your stay at one of the cheap hotels in downtown San Diego.

Ticketing

Daily passes are available for purchase at the fairgrounds and several San Diego area merchants offer discount coupons on specific days. A pass for the entire run of the fair is an economical buy for enthusiasts, and the $24 ticket is available at area Albertson’s grocery stores. Children under 5 are always free, and the 6-12 age group gets free admission on two Tuesdays. There are many other deals and discounts offered which can be viewed at sdfair.com.

Parking

Public transportation via train or bus means you don’t have to hassle with driving, but if you take the car, ample parking is available at the grounds for $10. Insiders know that free parking with a complimentary shuttle is located at Torrey Pines High School, MiraCosta College in Cardiff, and the Horsepark on El Camino Real in Del Mar.

Music and Entertainment

The fair is full of musical acts and entertainers from morning until night, including bands of national note as well as amateur talent competitions. Many of the shows including some of the biggest acts are free with your fair admission. A complete line up of the entertainment scheduled is viewable online at the fair’s website.

Food, Food, Food

One of the best things of any fair, and it’s no exception here, is the broad selection of fun and unique fair foods. No matter your taste of budget, you’ll find plenty of food and beverage options at the fair. Be sure to bring money for your favorite fried foods, ice cream, turkey legs and cotton candy.

Just for the Kids

There are many games and competitions geared towards children, who are admitted free on two Tuesdays: June 24 and July 1. Popular food stands will be selling reduced size kids’ portions at discounts this year and you can also look for “Kids Meal Deals” signs throughout the fair for other targeted refreshments. Family Funfield, located in the infield area of the track, has special exhibits, entertainment and attractions that are family-oriented.

Services

A host of services are designed to make your visit more enjoyable including picnic areas, ATMs, information booths, stroller and wheel chair rental, and a lost and found.

Directions

From the South, take Interstate 5 (the San Diego Freeway) twenty miles north of downtown until you reach the Via de la Valle exit, turning left on Via de la Valle until you reach Jimmy Durante Boulevard, where you will take another left. Follow the signs and parking personnel from that point.

Make transportation and accommodations easy by grabbing a cheap hotel near San Diego airport. Marina Inn and Suites is a top and trusted budget inn located near freeway access to the fairgrounds, top local attractions and of course, the San Diego Airport.

Last Minute Tips for the San Diego Health & Fitness Expo

marina-inn-healthfitness-blog

The San Diego Health & Fitness Expo will take place May 30 and 31 at the San Diego Convention Center. The two day event will be packed with over 80 exhibitors and demonstrations designed to enhance your healthy life. The expo is put on in conjunction with the San Diego Rock n’ Roll Marathon, which kicks off at 6:15 AM on Sunday, June 1. Expect downtown San Diego delays as over 30,000 pairs of jogging shoe clad feet swarm the streets along with road closures which will surely impact driving conditions on race day. For a complete list of road and freeway closures visit the race website at runrocknroll.competitor.com. A surefire way to beat the traffic is to make reservations at one of the city’s cheap San Diego convention center hotels.

Once visitors make it into the Expo inside the San Diego Convention Center, they’ll be treated to a vast array of health-inspired fun. Products on display will include the very latest in running shoes, athletic apparel, health and nutrition products and much more.

Speakers and Demonstrations

Every 30 minutes on Friday and Saturday, starting at 12:30 PM on Friday, and 10 AM Saturday, expo attendees will be able to meet and hear from some of America’s running champions, including past winners of the Boston Marathon and staff from Competitor Magazine. World class marathoners will explain ways to find a balance with family life and the grueling training the marathoners undergo.

Before and After the Expo

With the convention center’s location in San Diego’s famous Gaslamp Quarter – consisting of 16 blocks of restored historical buildings housing restaurants, shops, and nightspots – you might consider extending your vacation in San Diego to include some of the nearby sights, attractions and nightlife. There are plenty of cheap hotels in downtown San Diego offering extended stay discounts
Just need to relax? On the bayside of the convention center, you’ll find the Embarcadero Marina Park South complete with bike and hiking paths, exercise stations, picnic tables, gazebos, concessions stand and a fishing pier.

Hours, Tickets, Parking

Doors to the fit expo open at 11 a.m. on Friday, and 9 a.m. on Saturday, with early entry available to “TourPass” purchasers, otherwise admission to the expo is free.

Parking at the convention center is $15; however, alternative parking locations are available throughout downtown San Diego in nearby parking garages for a similar fee.

As traffic to and around the convention center is expected to be congested both days during the expo, San Diego public transportation can make your day less stressful. The San Diego Trolley has two stops on the Green Line located directly in front of the convention center. There are also plenty of taxi cabs and pedicabs available downtown to help you navigate San Diego streets.

 

There’s no need for transportation if you booked a room at Marina Inn, located less than two miles from the San Diego Convention Center. Our cheap San Diego marathon hotel is the perfect race day getaway, located walking distance to everything in Downtown San Diego and we offer all hotel guests a free buffet breakfast every morning.
