Karl Strauss Tasting Room, Pacific Beach
I had the pleasure of attending Arts and Amps last night, hosted by Karl Strauss to promote their delicious brews as well as local artists, Little Hurricane & Thumbprint Gallery. The event was held at the Karl Strauss Tasting Room in PB. I've been to the Karl Strauss restaurant in Carlsbad many times (they make a mean Mac and Cheese!) but never the tasting room so it was a new experience.
Thumbprint Gallery promotes a variety of local artists throughout SoCal. The intern I spoke with says that they host local art shows like this multiple times a month. You can join their email list via their website to receive notifications for upcoming events.
As you can see from the turnout, local blues-rock band, Little Hurricane is kind of a big deal. Their set was packed like this from beginning to end.
Tons of locals gathered to eat and mingle around Chop Soo-ey and Ms. Patty Melt food trucks. I was excited to see that both food trucks were created by Chef Deborah Scott, I recently experienced her menu at Island Prime located on Harbor Island, San Diego. Some really amazing sea food!
Enjoying a Cali Chicken Sandwich from Chop Soo-ey Food Truck and a Mosaic Session Ale. The food was fresh and the beer was crisp.

My name is Karen Vazquez. I have lived in Southern California for over thirty years. I recently realized that it was time for me to give back to this wonderful community by supporting local SoCal businesses, performers, restaurants, spas, boutiques, fitness studios, farmers markets and more. My support shines through here by highlighting these fabulous local SoCal spots. You can also follow me on Facebook, Instagram (see the attached link to my page) and my LinkedIn. I will be featuring many local destinations in the area that have been my personal favorites for years and am currently recruiting guest bloggers to expand the voice of LoSoCal. I have had guest bloggers in the past, but aim to incorporate local SoCal bloggers on a regular basis as a fun and creative way to connect with the local community here. Essentially, LoSoCal is a local community blog, and it is meant to be resource to locals in the SoCal area and visitors from around the world. Please tell your contacts about my blog.
