As the economy begins to mend, Peninsula residents are beginning to venture out more to take advantage of the host of offerings Point Loma and Old Town San Diego businesses are eager to serve up. You might be looking for the best deal on those pesky insurance rates or perhaps you’re in the market for that perfect piece of jewelry for that special person in your life. You may be looking for the right company to take care of your air-conditioning needs this hot summer or to get some relief from a chiropractor who can give some much-needed attention to your aching back. Perhaps you’re seeking a quiet spot for a sunset margarita where you can observe the passing boats in peace as the setting sun eases into the horizon. Or maybe you’re on the hunt for cool museums and new educational opportunities for the family and kids. Need some flashy new sunglasses or some down time with a long, relaxing massage? From the serenity of Shelter Island to the pristine beauty of Point Loma and from the magic of the Midway District to the rich, historic vibe of Old Town and the impressive shopping and cultural diversity of Liberty Station, the choices are practically endless. Point Loma, with its iconic peninsula finger dipping into the Pacific, is home to a wealth of fabulous homespun eateries, fine-dining establishments, services of every kind, food sources offering healthful products and values, and sumptuous wine bars to cap off a relaxing evening together. Liberty Station, once the site of the sprawling, venerable Naval Training Center, is fast becoming San Diego’s hottest mecca for arts, entertainment, culture, science and shopping, packing an extensive array of shops, markets and restaurants all into a single community. Nearby Shelter Island, with its incredible bay views and stunning downtown panoramas, boasts some of the finest and most beautiful waterside hotels and restaurants in San Diego, along with cottage shops offering up cool maritime merchandise and knick-

knacks. In the Midway District, you’ll discover everything from mechanic needs to mouth-watering barbeque offerings, cozy cafés with themes you won’t find elsewhere in San Diego, sporting-goods and home-improvement outlets and all forms of entertainment. Old Town San Diego, considered the birthplace of California with its roots tracing back to the first European settlements on the West Coast, is packed with historic museums, artifacts, stunning Spanish architecture and enough picturesque shops and restaurants to keep you and the family busy all day. No matter what you’re looking for in each of these Peninsula areas or Old Town San Diego, there are a host of merchants here who treat you like a king or queen — whether its fixing that aching tooth, putting the finishing touches on your tax return or helping you find just the right bouquet of flowers to say, “I’m thinking of you.” But how in the world do you narrow your selections with so much to choose from? Well, that’s where the Peninsula Beacon can make things a little easier for you. Here, we present the latest edition of the 2014 Readers Choice Awards — the best-of-the-best in retail, restaurants and services for the Peninsula area and Old Town San Diego. The merchants in these bustling areas are dedicated to winning your business — and more importantly, to keeping it. The awards served up in the following pages were chosen by our loyal readership, which we value so highly. Some of the winners may already be your favorites. Others you might not be familiar with. But now you have the consensus of fellow readers to help you decide where to do your shopping, dining and take your daily business. Congratulations!

With more than 100 beers on tap, from Abita Purple Haze to Young’s Double Chocolate Stout, and all the alphabet letters in between, there’s a beer for every glass. Best-paired with Slater’s beers is the “50/50” burger, but don’t let its menu curtail your selection, you can create a burger with your own mish-mosh of toppings to pair it perfectly with your brew.

Casa De Reyes

New Orleans Creole Cafe

There’s no escaping the Hawaiian theme at this longtime San Diego fixture; it’s everywhere from the menu to the décor, and it includes Hawaiian nachos, macadamia nut chicken, haole halibut and about a million more choices. The 50th state rules here by virtue of its cuisine, and its tiny place on the map be hanged. Meanwhile, the restaurant’s accouterments are everchanging in deference to tiki art or Polynesian carvings of human forms. And the fact that the building sits smack on the water only enhances the flow of things. Mahalo – enjoy!

Offering traditional mexican fare with flare, Casa De Reyes is situated outdoors under a unique carrizo arbor, just steps from Fiesta De Reyes stage. Bring the whole family to dine and enjoy daily entertainment ranging from energetic mariachis to historic plays to traditional folklorico dancing. Sit around the fire pit and catch up with friends over a drink or just hang out on the lawn and enjoy the entertainment on their outdoor stage.

Owned and operated by Mark Bihm and Humberto Villegas, New Orleans Creole Café opened in 2004. Its main focus is the food – recipes handed down through seven generations of Mark’s family. They proudly serve authentic Creole dishes and Abita beers. In order to keep dishes authentic, many of the ingredients along with the brews are imported directly from Louisiana. Jambalaya and Crawfish Etouffee are among their specialties. Creole Café has gone “back to the basics”. Everything is done by Mark and Humberto. During the busy season, you will see a few extra faces, but the charm and hospitality doesn’t change.

Point Loma Seafoods It began with an idea . . . Point Loma Seafoods first opened its doors to the public back in 1963. Kelly Christianson and his wife Marie began selling fish out of a small store with one small display case.

In time, along with their sons Jack and John, Kelly and Marie slowly built Point Loma Seafoods' reputation as more than just a fresh fish market. Soon they began smoking and processing both sport-caught fish and fish for retail sales. Point Loma Seafoods 2805 Emerson St. Point Loma (619) 223-1109 pointlomaseafoods.com

ENJOY THE BEAUTY OF OLD TOWN Stagecoach Days: Celebrating the Wild West in San Diego Free Event Every Saturday in July and August in Old Town Old Town San Diego State Historic Park is celebrating travel and transportation in the era of real horsepower during “Stagecoach Days,” kicking off on July 11. Come join in the old-fashioned fun from the mid-1800s from noon to 4 p.m. on seven Saturdays in July and August. Sponsored by Fiesta de Reyes and Boosters of Old Town, the free event features a different theme each Saturday such as Days of the Vaqueros, Women of the West, Soldiers and Citizens, TwainFest and Taste of the Past. Attendees will enjoy afternoons filled with activities that reflect life in early

San Diego and celebrate the West on the move. Through living history activities and demonstrations, stories and songs, visitors will gain an appreciation for early modes of transportation and daily life. All activities are geared toward children and adults of all ages. “This year’s Stagecoach Days will be the best in our park’s history,” stated Event Coordinator Gregg Giacopuzzi. “We have added many more familyfriendly activities to the event this year so visitors will get a true taste of what Old Town was like in the 1800s.” The Stagecoach Days schedule is as follows. August 8 - “Soldiers and Citizens” The military has been part of San Diego

since its inception. Following the Mexican American War, dragoons, the Mormon Battalion and the Boundary Commission all had an impact on life in San Diego. August 15 - “TwainFest” - This wildly popular festival celebrates literacy and the literary works of Mark Twain and other 19th-century authors. Excerpts from famous works will be presented by costumed San Diego actors at a variety of park venues throughout the day. August 22 - “West on the Move” The California Gold Rush brought thousands of people to San Diego. Some stayed, many more passed through, seeking their fortunes up north. Cali-

fornia State Parks will present demonstrations and activities that were part of the lives of these people on the move. Old Town San Diego State Historic Park, with the support of Boosters of Old Town and Fiesta de Reyes, is proud to offer these free activities for adults and children of all ages. The park is located on San Diego Avenue and Twiggs Street in San Diego, and is conveniently located next to the Old Town Transit Center, with Coaster, Trolley, and MTS bus service. Free parking is available at the CalTrans headquarters, just two blocks from the park at 4050 Taylor St. For more information, go to www.parks.ca.gov/oldtownsandiego

Best Grocery Store Trader Joes It all started in the ’50s. Would you believe they started out as a small chain of convenience stores? It's true. Way back in 1958, they were called Pronto Markets. In '67, the founder, the original Trader Joe, changed the name to Trader Joe's. They made the stores bigger (if you can imagine), decked the walls with cedar planks and donned the crew in cool Hawaiian shirts. Most importantly, they started putting innovative, hard-to-find, great-tasting foods in the Trader Joe's name. That cut costs and saved you money. Still does.

Owners Maria and Patrick Brinson decided to open up a place for feline and avian companions, because they noticed that the level of service for dogs has grown, while cats and birds have been left behind. It’s for pet owners that may not want a sitter coming into their home or may want their animal companions to have more than one or two short visits a day. They felt they could not only offer more than what is currently available but also raise the level of care for cats and birds when staying away from home.
