The Dobson's Burger

I must have first visited Dobson's in the San Diego Gaslamp before there was such thing as Gaslamp.

People still shake their heads when I give them that one. Before thee Gaslamp? How old is this guy.

But not too long ago there was a Horton Plaza and a city going down the drain. Before it could vanish, Gaslamp was born. Dobson's survived as well.

Chef Martin asked me to come by once more. If you sneak a peek at Chef martin's bio on the Dobson's website, you would think this guy would have little time for a moemoirist who wrote about burgers.

Fact is the chef wears many hats and one of them is a gracious host. He just might greet you and your party when you enter the restaurant. He will be the one with a big smile.

I wasn't there for the frills. Just give me the Dobson's burger and Caesar Salad.

If that impresses me, I will be driven to write about you. If you taste more like Burger King, I will write about that too.

The salad was delicious and two ample sized anchovies joined the salad perched on an island on the western edge of my fancy plate.

I was in heaven but wait, there was more!

The helpful Dobson's waiter was bringing me my piping hot burger. Two big patties!

Tres bien!

Dobson's reminds me of a crowded New York city townhouse with a bustling bar at the entry and a cavern of rooms heading in all directions where you can dine per your mood of the day.

All you need to know is this.

I love the Dobson's Burger.

You will too!

Write me if I am wrong or better yet just bring it to the attention of Chef martin.

He will make it right!

My Visit to Hillcrest Sandwich Shop

Most of my visits to san Diego restaurants I don't bother to read much about them online.

I trust my own mind and like to make my own observations.

I visit Hillcrest all the time but somehow I had not come across this little stop called Hillcrest Sandwich..

After all, I was a regular at Bronx Pizza and had seen dozens of movies at Mark Cuban's Landmark Theatre. Somehow Hillcrest Sandwich had been overlooked.

Here was my chance on a sultry Saturday late morning. I looked up on 5th Avenue and there it was.

Truth told I had been looking for a replacement sandwich eatery ever since my old favorite, The District  on Market Street suddenly vanished before my eyes.

This will happen in San Diego. One day you are eating a juicy burger or delectable sandwich and the next day you pass by and the doors are locked and the signs are down.

Whatever happened to Smashburger on Market?

But I digress.

Point is that I was on the prowl for a new sandwich eatery and here was Hillcrest Sandwich. Might it be a match made in sandwich heaven?

My son the CEO told me his firm often ordered from Hillcrest Sandwich and they loved the food!

I wasn't convinced.

I must admit the first thing that caught my eye was the choice of sandwich breads. These were serious players. It seemed that you could order your sandwich on just about anything, including my favorite, the trusted onion roll.

Now for the choice of meat. I selected roast beef and it was heavenly. I added a slice of provolone and the portion was large!

Did I mention the pickle?

There is nothing that tops off a sandwich like a good pickle and when you see the size of the pickles at this little habitat, you will be coming back just for this delight.

I did sneak a peek at their Facebook Page. You come away from their page with the impression that everyone found the staff and the management to be like family.

This is true.

So I have a new secret sandwich spot.

And I hope it won't remain secret much longer.

But you won't tell anyone.

Will you?

Our nonprofit will soon open the doors in San Diego to the first Town Center, a nostalgic Alzheimer's city which will be duplicated in most major cities worldwide dedicated to changing the landscape of Alzheimer's care.
We want to connect with a donor's emailing program which will locate donors around the world who want to have naming rights in the Town Center campus of the city of their choice. Can you help?

Next month in San Diego will open its first Town Center which will be a model for Alzheimer's Care for the next decade plus.

At Glenner we would like KUSI to cover the opening of our very first Town Center here in San Diego.

Please contact our CEO Scott Tarde at 516-971-1209.

Senior Idol 2017

And now, the end is near
And so I face the final curtain
My friend, I'll say it clear
I'll state my case, of which I'm certain
I've lived a life that's full
I've traveled each and every highway
But more, much more than this
I did it my way
Regrets, I've had a few
But then again, too few to mention
I did what I had to do
And saw it through without exemption
I planned each charted course
Each careful step along the byway
And more, much more than this
I did it my way
Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew
But through it all, when there was doubt
I ate it up and spit it out
I faced it all and I stood tall
And did it my way
