Sunsets On The Boulevard is Friday, May 12

Wheat & Water is proud to take part in another Sunsets On The Boulevard! After the fantastic response on April 7th, we're hoping to grow the event throughout the summer. Some new businesses have joined in on the neighborhood-wide shopping and dining event, and we're excited for another new business joining our neighborhood, Be Seen Optics, which will be located at 5702 La Jolla Boulevard in Suite 102. We've included a full list of businesses participating at the bottom of the blog post. You can also click the graphic above for a download of the flyer and map. We look forward to seeing you out!

What to Drink

Head Bartender Ashley Moore is getting us in the summer mood with $6 Mai Tai's. The fantastic tiki cocktail originated way back in 1944 at Trader Vic's in San Francisco with aged rum, cointreau, lime juice and orgeat (almond syrup). Build one at home, or come visit us Friday for one or two... or five.

Recipe for Wheat & Water's Mai Tai:

  • 1 1/2 oz Aged rum
  • 3/4 oz Triple sec
  • 1 oz Lime juice
  • 1/2 oz Orgeat
  • Shake;
  • Pour over ice into a pineapple-shaped mug.*

* Whereas the pineapple-shaped mug is not required for Mai Tai consumption, it has been scientifically proven to enhance its aromatics and drinkability; therefore greatly improving the overall experience of those looking to fully enjoy the Mai Tai. Of course, we at Wheat & Water serve all our Mai Tai's in pineapple-shaped mugs.

We are also wrapping up a fantastic run with featured brewery, Societe Brewing. With four IPA options, a Belgian ale and a stout, our guests have had their hands full checking out the brewer. Next up is long-time friends over at Hess Brewing on May 19th. Mark your calendars, because we are featuring three versions of their rotating West Coast IPA series, Solis Occasus, plus their Grapefruit Solis and 8 West Orange Honey Wheat. Can't wait!

Wheat & Water and the Bird Rock Community Council Present "Sunsets on the Boulevard"

Are you ready to start wearing shorts and flip flops as we are? It’s time to put those cold, dark, rainy Winter days behind us and get back to the warm and sunny.

Wheat & Water, along with the Bird Rock Community Council, invite you to the first-ever Sunsets on the Boulevard on April 7th from 5-8pm. Grab the kiddos, friends or significant other and head out for a relaxing stroll along Bird Rock’s main drag, La Jolla Boulevard.

Spring in San Diego is just the countdown to Summer. But, we don’t have to wait until May to enjoy the longer days and rising temps? That’s exactly what Doug, Wheat & Water’s COO, thought, too. So, he pitched this idea to the Bird Rock Council, then went door-to-door asking local businesses to stay open late and participate. (40 businesses!)

Stop in and shop. Grab a couple drinks and dine out. Get out and spend more time in your beachside community!
