our first night there we stayed in the gaslamp district downtown at the marriott, where we got upgraded to a suite!! it was so nice. our hotel also had a super fun roof top bar called altitude which overlooked the bay, the Coronado bridge, the baseball field and the rest of downtown. we got there just in time for happy hour too!
too bad there wasn't a baseball game to watch... we would have had a great view!
for dinner our first night, we found one of the hippest spots in town: el camino. the place is genius. its a lounge/tequila bar/patio/restaurant with a contemporary/dia de los muertos/mexican theme. very unique. i had the best burrito i've ever had in my life here. seriously!
the "california burrito" took all my favorites foods and put them into one giant flour tortilla... carne asada, guacamole and french fries. i'm telling you this place is genius. if you are ever in san diego, be sure to stop by! mmm... i'm drooling just thinking about that burrito.
