1½ hours from Orange County: Rooftop relaxation in San Diego
2PM: Even a quick trip needs some new threads. Or at least fun vintage finds from San Diego.
Stop by Frock You for everything from ’60s feather bedroom slippers to ’80s glam-rock snakeskin boots. Closed Mon–Tue; 4121 Park Blvd.; 619/ 220-0630.
5PM: Zoom up to the Phi Terrace on the ninth floor of Hotel Indigo, pull up a couple of wicker chairs around the firepit, and order a local microbrew or two and a few appetizers (far better than the $5 fries you’d get at the ballpark)―then wait for the first pitch across the street at Petco Park. From $180, restaurant $$; or 619/727-4000.
9AM: If you sleep in any later, you won’t get one of the window tables at Cafe Chloe, a Parisian-style bistro in downtown San Diego’s East Village.
Settle in to enjoy the street scene while noshing on house-cured salmon gravlax tartine washed down with a pomegranate mimosa. $; 721 Ninth Ave.; 619/232-3242.
