On today’s episode of the Happy Half Hour, we’re talking about Hundred Proof, the gastropub in Hillcrest that just hired former George’s at the Cove bar director Stephen Kurpinsky to revamp their cocktail offerings. Plus, an Indian restaurant is opening next month in South Park and Aero Club will live on thanks to its new owners, The Waterfront’s Chad Cline and Jason Nichols. Today’s guest is Frank Vizcarra, the owner of the new East Village taqueria, Lola55. His resume spans professional soccer, working at Pizza Hut and McDonald’s, and investing in Tender Greens. He opened Lola, a tribute to his 81-year-old mother, earlier this month with many of the recipes he grew up eating. Frank talks about why McDonald’s is the most misunderstood company in the world, his nationwide taco research tour, and expansion plans for Lola55. In Two People/$50, we’re recommending Civico1845, El Carrito, and Carruth Wine Cellars Garden. And did you hear? San Diego Magazine has launched its Insiders club, offering exclusive discounts at editor-picked restaurants, bars, spas, and more for just $10 per month. That’s right—it’ll cost you less than happy hour.
