Housed in a historic theatre in San Diego’s North Park neighborhood, West Coast Tavern has quite a bit of vintage character. Several indoor and outdoor dining areas provide something for everyone. Many customers come for the bar which offers updated takes on classics, including over a dozen variations on the Moscow Mule.

If you like brunch cocktails, this place is a must try, offering over 20 mid-day appropriate drinks. Daily happy hour and late night are popular times to enjoy West Coast Tavern. Most nights the DJ attracts a dancing crowd, and their full menu is served until midnight.

The menu is mostly tapas twists on pub grub. One popular pick is the lamb sliders with feta cheese, caramelized onions, and rosemary aioli or the five spice wings. Visit West Coast Tavern's website to find out more about this San Diego eatery.

Caffeine Hides in These Two Common Foods

October 14, 2014 12:38 pm

Caffeine can give you a great boost of energy in the morning, but it can also cause headaches and annoying jitters when you drink too much. If you already cut out coffee but still feel the side effects of caffeine, you might be getting it from a different source altogether! Here are two surprising sources of caffeine that might surprise you.

  1. Decaf coffee. While you may think that switching to decaf is a solution to your caffeine problems, you still can’t go wild with your coffee intake. A cup of decaf coffee contains about five milligrams of caffeine, which is much less than a normal cup of regular, but it can still cause you to feel some side effects if you drink too much.
  2. Chocolate-flavored foods. Even if you opt for a plain old cup of hot chocolate instead of the espresso flavored truffles, many chocolate flavored foods contain a great deal of caffeine. Instant breakfast drinks can have about nine milligrams of caffeine, while powdered hot chocolate mix can also contain around nine milligrams. Be sure to check the label on any chocolate products that you purchase.
