There’s no better time than Halloween to gather with friends and family and get scared out of your wits. Some partake in the frightful festivities by holding horror movie marathons at home, while others go to theme parks to check out elaborate set pieces of nightmares brought to life.
As for you and your thrill-seeking pals, movies and mazes just don’t do it. You wish for a truly bone-chilling experience, the kind you’ll never forget. Well, if that’s the case, then you should test your mettle at one of the notorious haunted spots in San Diego listed below. You may just end up finding out why it is people say, “Be careful what you wish for …” Read the rest »
As much as the attorneys at the Jurewitz Law Group in San Diego love the summer and all our fair city and surrounding area have to offer during the season, we also love it when things calm down a bit. We can take a breath and then go to some great San Diego-area fall events.
Now that summer is winding down, here are a few ideas of what you can do during San Diego’s “shoulder season” (yes, we didn’t know what that meant either, but after intrepid investigation, we found out “shoulder season” is a travel period between peak and off-peak seasons. Now, go and impress your friends with your vast knowledge.)
Here are a few festivals and events you might want to check out:
Julian Apple Harvest. If you like apple pie or all things apple-related, then stop by the Julian Apple Harvest, which runs from September through mid October. There will be live entertainment and, if you feel so inclined, you can even pick your own apples at a local orchard — just make sure you ask first. Read the rest »
While San Diego is awash in burritos and fish tacos, every now and then the attorneys at the Jurewitz Law Group in San Diego just want a good old-fashioned burger. It turns out we’re in luck because California has the largest number of burger joints in the nation. (We have 6,104 of the 49,000 restaurants classified as burger joints in the U.S.)
Of course, McDonald’s is the largest chain (amazingly they buy more than 1 billion pounds of beef each year), and of course, there is In-N-Out Burger, which ranks remarkably high on the Zagat scale for burger joints in the San Diego area. If you are not aware of In-N-Out’s (not so) secret menu, then you have only scratched the surface of this iconic California burger destination.
Large burger-chains aside, San Diego also has some go-to locations if you are looking for burgers both basic and sublime. Here are a few:
If you can stand the out-the-door lines during peak hours, visiting Hodad’s is a must if you are looking to delve into San Diego burger lore. With its surf shack vibe, Hodad’s has three locations in San Diego (if you count the Petco Park location). The location in Ocean Beach is the original. Want to learn more? Check out the Hodad’s website. Read the rest »
Thirty-three million people visited San Diego last year and the Jurewitz Law Group in San Diego is sure that more than a few of them came to hit our amazing beaches, sit in the sun, and maybe do a bit of surfing.
Let’s face it: San Diego is synonymous with surfing and the surf culture. The sport was introduced at the San Onofre Beach Fishing Camp 75 years ago and it has been going strong ever since. In 2012 some 300,000 people visited the famed Trestle surf break at San Onofre State Beach. Read the rest »
We lost one of the good guys on Monday, June 16th.
Of course, we’re talking about Tony Gwynn, known as “Mr. Padre,” who died after a battle with cancer at 54. He began his long and distinguished career with the San Diego Padres and ended his career with the San Diego Padres. The Baseball Hall of Fame inductee exemplified what an athlete should be on and off the field.
Mr. Gwynn’s 20-year career with the Padres concluded on Sept. 30, 2001. He was one of only 16 players in the history of baseball to have played at least 20 seasons and spent their entire career with one team. Over those 20 seasons he had a batting average of .338 and earned an astounding eight league batting titles; tying him with Honus Wagner in the National League and only being bested by Ty Cobb who won 12 titles in the American League.
His name and his legacy became synonymous with San Diego. In 2004, the Padres retired his No. 19 jersey and in the spring of 2005 the street on which Petco Park is located was named Tony Gwynn Drive in his honor. In 2007 a statue of Tony was erected at the stadium. Read the rest »
Whether you are a rabid soccer fan or don’t know a corner kick from a goal kick there is no denying that the worldwide excitement generated by the World Cup every four years is palpable. In our endless quest to enhance your experience of “The Beautiful Game,” the Jurewitz Law Group in San Diego has searched high and low to find the best pubs and restaurants in the area where you can watch your favorite World Cup team play and share your love for the game with others so inclined.
(A disclaimer: We are not saying that you need to tip a pint or two to enjoy soccer, also known as “futbol” to the several billion people who do not live in the States. But, we are also saying that it probably doesn’t hurt, either.)
Anyway, here are some places where soccer is king during the worldwide futbol fest:
Shakespeare Pub & Grille
We know. Who would have figured that an English Pub would be a hotspot for soccer-crazed fans during World Cup? But the pub, located at 37001 India St., has promised that it will show every game, everyday, live for the duration of the Cup. Be aware that there will be a cover charge of $10, but that includes a $10 voucher for food and beverages. For a complete schedule of games and times, you can visit their website. Read the rest »
Ask people across the nation what springs to mind when the city of San Diego is mentioned and they will most likely say the Jurewitz Law Group in San Diego and how we protect your legal rights. We are thinking a distant second would be the San Diego Zoo.
The San Diego Zoo, located in beautiful Balboa Park, is the go-to destination for tourists and locals alike (to the tune of an average of 5 million visitors each year). The zoo houses more than 3,700 animals from 650 species and contains some 700,000 plant species. To get a perspective on the size of the San Diego Zoo, just contrast it with the Los Angeles Zoo which houses 1,100 species and sees 1.5 million visitors annually. Read the rest »
So, what are you planning to do with your summer in ten years?
If the San Diego 2024 Exploratory Committee has its way, you just might be coming to our fair city to watch people throwing metal balls great distances or catch very fit men and women diving from dizzying heights into the water.
In June, we will know if we have made the short list of U.S. cities that will be considered to host the 2024 Summer Olympics. The United States Olympic Committee (USOC) has said that it will narrow down its choice to three U.S. cities that will be considered to host the games. Read the rest »
As much as we love protecting your legal rights, the attorneys at the Jurewitz Law Group need to take some time to smell the roses and enjoy the lovely weather and outdoor art that San Diego has to offer. Yes, there is more to San Diego than a zoo, a marine park and beautiful beaches (although those attractions are certainly nothing to sneeze at.)
Here are just a few places you can get your culture on in the San Diego area.
It’s only about a mile away from the Gas Lamp Quarter and the East Village. Chicano Park showcases murals painted by Chicano artists in the late 1960’s and early 70’s. Located under the San Diego-Coronado Bridge, the park features artwork created by local San Diego artists as well as artists from around the state. Check out the “Children’s Mural” painted by students from Lowell Elementary School.
Murals of La Jolla
The non-profit La Jolla Community Foundation sponsors this private community-wide project in which established and lesser-known artists create large outdoor murals to be featured throughout the community. To save time, the large murals are created from digital files sent from the artists and put up billboard style on the walls of buildings.

There are certain foods that define cities. If you go to New Orleans then you will probably want to order gumbo or jambalaya. Chicago? Well, you’ll most certainly want to find some deep-dish pizza.
And if you are in our beautiful city of San Diego you will certainly want to grab a fish taco.
The Jurewitz Law Group went to renowned restaurant rating service Zagat to find what it considers to be the essential fish taco venues in the city so you know where to go if you get fish taco fever in San Diego. Here are the restaurants our office recommends:
Mariscos German is not actually a restaurant, but food trucks (plural). However, their fish tacos are served in trucks that do not move from their locations, so we guess they could be considered restatrucks or truckaraunts, or something like that. Anyway, Mariscos German has topped many of the lists we have checked out, so you should probably check them out too. Read the rest »
