Beaumont’s/Brockton Villa

I happened to be dining at Beaumont’s this evening with my daughter and spied these events.

Brockton Villa Beaumont's La JollaBeaumont’s in Bird Rock has been my daughter’s favorite restaurant since she was 2 years old. We both like the food and upscale-casual vibe. My husband and I like the happy hour deals. Beaumont’s sister restaurant, Brockton Villa, is one of La Jolla’s most popular breakfast spots due to the delicious food (hello, Coast Toast) and stunning ocean view. I haven’t yet been there for dinner, but I bet it’s very romantic, especially on Valentine’s Day.

Go In Style With Uber San Diego

Uber San DiegoUber San Diego makes black car services less daunting and more easily accessible. Download the app or book online, but on this Valentine’s Day, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t indulge in a bit of bubbly and ride in style. Order up some Uber on Valentine’s Day and the car comes with roses and perhaps…singing. Read more about Uber San Diego here and grab a $10 credit (new accounts only).

Yes, there are a gazillion other events happening around town, too. I’ll add more as I hear about them. What are you up to on Valentine’s Day?
