    I know the PB area alot better but I stopped by the Beach Bar at The W, and EDEN at the Ivy Hotel this afternoon. Both are upscale and packed on weekends. FWIW

    There is the "Hard Rock Cafe" but they're all pretty much the same everywhere. Though if there is a good live band, it could be cool

    Then there's 4th and B. See if a band is playing there that you like.
    House of Blues... See above.

    The Shot House is a great place to get hammered with interesting entertainment!!!

    Bitter End is always reliable!!! So is Martini Ranch.

    Other wise... just walk down Fifth Ave. and you'll find something.

    The Gaslamp is an overprice tourist trap. I'd suggest you visit another part of SD, but if you're into the big dance club (and big cover charge), the gaslamp might be what you're looking for.

    As far as which places to go there, I guess that depends on what you're looking for. On the rare occasions I did go to the gaslamp, I would go to places like Martini Ranch, Mahoneys, Blarney Stone, The Field, Dick's Last Resort, Onyx Room. There are others, but places change around there, so I'm not sure how up to date my list is.

    Send me a PM if you want to find some cool (non-gaslamp) places to go.

    Oooh, you would love Dick's Last Resort. The servers give you crap and you can dish it out right back at them. Verbal, of course, not actual poo.

    The first and only time I went to that place was in San Antonio. I figured it was just that famous Texas hospitality.

    They walk up and throw straws all over and at people, then say something like "I don't care what you want" and proceed to insult you and whatever you're wearing. When you get your food you have no silverware, just a bucket of food and a paper place mat. While you eat, they make paper hats for you and write nasty things on them. It's really fun to go with a group of at least 6 people, and you can be as rude to the servers as you want, because they are very rude to you.

    Don't try talking on the cell phone at Dick's Last Resort. I was there when a business guy was obviously trying to take care of something at the office. The server announced to the entire place to be quiet as that guy was on the phone, which of course just incited screams and jeers. Yeah, you'll love it there p88f

    Rockin Baja Lobster is on the corner of 5th and K.

    Dick's is crazy fun. They have these big-azz beers, too.:icon_party:

    Big-azz beer. Does that mean the bear is big, the beer tastes like azz, or it is big and tastes like azz?
