1. The Quartyard

1102 Market St
San Diego, CA 92101
It’s an amazing day and nighttime outdoor venue that really captures the urban soul of the city, with an urban park, bars, and food spots all built from shipping containers. Grind on some delicious eats from S&W Meats and O My! Taco while listening to music and getting your skate on. There’s an adorable dog park too.

2. East Village Bowling

The Migration Team loves bowling. This small but perfect bowling bar is a swanky hipster joint — in the good way! — with great beers and old-school lanes.
