We will take a short walk down the street to Chef Marty's favorite place to enjoy an authentic Italian Happy Hour; it's THE BEST!!!
Chef Marty specializes in the cuisine of Tuscany; she is also a Professor of Italian! She will take you on a short walk through Little Italy, one of the last Italian neighborhoods left in the entire USA! You will learn about the history of the Italian immigrants in San Diego.

Where you'll be
The San Diego neighborhood of Little Italy is one of only a few left in the entire USA. Although settled in the 1920's as a residential neighborhood and after years of decline, today it has been gentrified and there are many Italian restaurants, delis and shops that are fun to explore. Understanding the history of this evolution enriches the experience and the Italian Happy Hour fare is just the icing on the cake!
