"BREWS BY THE BAY" WITH MIKE HESS BREWING
If you’re missing this weekend’s opening of San Diego Beer Week (what could be more important?), there’s a cool event next week, Nov. 7 at 6:30 pm , where North Park brewer Mike Hess is part of a cuisine/craft beer pairing at the stunning new Baleen restaurant at the Paradise Point resort. Set on an island in the middle of Mission Bay, Baleen makes you quickly forget you’re in the middle of a big city.
