Explore San Diegos summer dining options

Little Italy in downtown features samples from their best restaurants during the summer.
From 5 to 9 p.m. on Wednesday, May 27, Taste of Little Italy offers samples of the district’s dining delights as guests stroll past local entertainment. A “passport” will allow visitors to pamper their palettes with a tasting that includes everything from appetizers and main courses to specialty drinks and desserts. Participating restaurants include Buon Appetito, Illume Bistro, Just Burgers and Lounge, Spicy Pickle, Yogurtland and many more, so stamp your “passport” as you divulge in their select menu samples. Because this event only comes around once a year, the season pass — 22 days for $22 — might be your best bet. Season passes are available for purchase until June 11. Regular admission tickets can be purchased at the fairground gates or for $2.50 online at . More information on the fair’s deals and promotions can also be found at its Web site. Enjoy a cold, refreshing beer in the Samuel Adams Beer Tasting Garden where one sample of the family’s fine beers is included in the ticket price.
