SAN DIEGO COUNTY FAIR - 2021
JUNE 11–JULY 4, 2021
(closed Mondays & Tuesdays)
GATES OPEN 11AM–9PM DAILY
Oh, how we missed you last year!
We just couldn’t let another summer come and go without celebrating San Diego and all of the wonderful food & agriculture, arts & talent, business & innovation, and all-around FUN of our community.
So while we’re still masked up and six-feet apart, we’re rolling up our sleeves and getting back to our roots for HOME*GROWN*FUN, presented by the San Diego County Fair.
Smaller in scale than the fair and limited in attendance, HOME*GROWN*FUN will offer a taste of your fair favorites–including shopping, food concessionaires, a Ferris wheel and carousel, agricultural-themed exhibits, demonstrations, contests and “edu-tainment” designed to educate and delight families looking to get outside for some real-life, in-person and down-home fun.
Let’s get growing again, San Diego!
Since 1948, the Walker family name has become synonymous with quality family dining. The family has since perfected its reputation for outstanding gourmet pancakes and breakfasts. Our story begins when Victor and Everett Walker began opening snack shops in Evanston, IL. In 1960, they opened Walker Bros. Original Pancake House in Wilmette, IL. In 1981, Richard Walker Sr. and Ray Walker, sons of Victor, opened Walker Bros. Original Pancake House in Glenview, IL. In 1989, Richard Walker Sr. ventured out on his own and opened Richard Walker’s Pancake House in Schaumburg, IL. In 1996, Richard Sr. opened a second location in Crystal Lake, IL. In 2006, Richard Sr. relocated to San Diego and opened the third location in downtown San Diego, CA. In 2014, Richard Walker Jr. joined the family business and opened the fourth Richard Walker’s Pancake House in La Jolla, CA. In 2019, Richard Jr. opened the fifth Richard Walker’s Pancake House in Carlsbad, CA. In 2020, Richard Jr. opened the sixth Richard Walker’s Pancake House in Del Mar, CA. Richard Walker’s Pancake House has been, and always will be, a 100% family owned, family funded, and family operated business. Period.
What’s Up With the Rabbit?
In numerous cultures throughout the world, the rabbit symbolically indicates comfort, abundance and family. Richard Walker’s Pancake House has chosen the symbol of the Rabbit to communicate our warmest gesture of “Welcome Home.” We hope that any time you see the Richard Walker’s Rabbit you find the symbol as comforting as we do.
Why is Richard Walker’s Coffee so darn good?
We start with the finest blend of whole-bean Prime Roasted Coffee sourced from Central America. The beans are roasted and delivered to our operations only. Then, each pot is ground fresh - one pot at a time. We filter our water to maximum purity and then slowly drip the water through the freshly ground beans. What’s left is rich, full-bodied, deeply flavored coffee. As Victor Walker Sr. would say, “It’s only a matter of a minute from the whole bean to a cup of the best coffee you have ever tasted.” Often imitated, never duplicated.
About Us - French Fare Meets California Fresh
Café culture in France goes back centuries. Cafes have always been a gathering place for intellectuals to meet and debate philosophical issues; for the Avant Guarde set to display their works; for artists to compare and exchange ideas and for writers to drown their sorrows over their artistic anguish or melancholy. Madeleine Café & Bakery brings the French Café Society to the doorstep of sunny Solana Beach. We offer a wide variety of breakfast and lunch options such as salads, sandwiches as well as fresh bread, Parisian desserts and high end organic coffee.
We are your go-to spot for brunch on South Cedros. In the mood for bottomless mimosa's or a glass of wine? We've got you covered. From rosé to sauvignon blanc & pinot noir to bordeaux, our gourmet French wine's will have to smiling all throughout brunch.
Whether you're looking for a rendez-vous spot, a networking source or just a place to relax or to refuel, stop by for a cappuccino, a pain au chocolate or even a Parisian salad and soak in the sun on our relaxing covered patio.

For years, we have been passionate about creating extraordinary cookie experiences for people we care about. We have found that there is something that creates a universal human connection across all cultures and languages when you bake something from your heart and share it as a gesture of gratitude or kindness.

“Hey, I care about you!”
“I appreciate you!”
“I love you!”
“I am proud of you!”
And that is where the purpose of Batch & Box begins!
Most people don’t have the time or skills to make an extraordinary batch of cookies, but they do have the desire to share kindness and want to connect with people they care about.

#1 Rated Mexican Food in Del Mar
Looking for fresh and quality Mexican Food? At El Pueblo Mexican Grill in Del Mar, we’ll serve you up the best and freshest Mexican food around. We use fresh vegetables delivered daily! Come join us for the #1 rated Mexican Food in Del Mar.
Alce 101 has been a lifetime in the making. It stems from Apple Valley, California in 1960.
At age 6 my Father took me to Roy Rogers Museum in Apple Valley Ca. Roy was a partner of my Father’s and was known for his hunting skills. Also Roy was well known for preserving and repurposing ALL that he hunted. I never will forget the beauty and the feeling of NEVER wanting to hunt anything. I will also NEVER forget the giant beautiful MOOSE with a nick from the shot in his antler.
In 2015, my wife and I were on our way to Palm desert and stopped into this random antique store. I was looking around for some time and found this massive object covered up in the corner. I asked the shop owner to let me take a look. He lifted the cover and there it was, that magnificent beauty of a moose “ALCE”. Neglected. Forgotten. Hidden in a corner.
The shop owner showed us the certificate of authenticity and that was the MOOSE I had seen, the moose I fell in love with in a museum over 50 years ago. The nick on the antler from the shot and all.
We were so amazed by him and wanted to give him a new life in our ALCE 101 Restaurant venture. We put our deposit down and eventually took him home to protect. He will live at the center of our bar in the Alce 101 restaurant. ALCE means MOOSE in Spanish.
Each of these tastes of Santa Fe New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona, Guadalupe Valley and the local provisions of the California coast will be expertly partnered with our vast selection of tequilas, mezcals, wines, beers and beverages.
Service will be our #1 PRIORITY, paralleled with the food. All will be set in a casual, elegant, social media-worthy atmosphere with a California/Southwest feel.
“Our creative dining concept will kick start a new/old trend for North County restaurants, hopefully sending a message that San Diego creative dining with knowledgeable, smart and conscientious staff is back, as we raise the bar.” ~Brad Evarts

Fidel's Little Mexico has been a San Diego landmark since the early '60s when owner Fidel Montanez came up with the idea to serve tacos at his busy barber shop.
The shop was located in the heart of Eden Gardens, a small neighborhood in Solana Beach that was home to a number of Mexican families. The tacos sold like hotcakes, and before long, the place evolved into a neighborhood cantina.
The business thrived and expanded as Fidel converted his two-story residence into three different levels, including a festive courtyard, a couple of bars and outdoor patios, and a taco bar.
Today, Fidel's ranks among the top restaurants in San Diego County. Happy hour is offered four days a week in the large upstairs bar. Fidel's menu offers traditional favorites as well as house specialties that will transport you and your party South of the Border.

It was immediately after World War II in 1946 that Tony and Catalina Gonzales decided to open a restaurant on the present site. Tony had just returned from military service and Catalina, who had contented herself with staying at home while Tony was away, persuaded him to allow her to open a Mexican restaurant right in his parents' home.
Open at first only on weekends, the modest establishment could seat just 26 persons. Catalina did the cooking and Tony helped serve. Soon the word about their chiles rellenos, turkey tacos and other tasty food spread throughout the area and even as far north as Los Angeles. Travelers and local residents would line up outside for long periods of time as they waited to be served.
Soon the Gonzaleses realized that they would have to extend their business days to accommodate the hungry diners. Tony's Jacal, or “old building,” was enlarged several times during the intervening years and the present six-day week was established. Now the restaurant is open every day but Tuesday.
Traditional Mexican dishes are prepared with mild or hot seasonings to please the discriminating palate. The menu also includes some American entrees.
Tony passed away May 1, 1974, and Catalina passed on April 24, 2000. The tradition of serving fine Mexican food is being carried on by their two daughters, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
The Gonzales family is proud of their cuisine and the years of devoted service they have given their customers, many of whom return regularly for the chiles rellenos and other Mexican favorites.

The Belly Up opened in Solana Beach, California, in 1974 with only a couple of mics and no stage. Over the years it became a frequent stop for legends like John Lee Hooker, Etta James, and BB King. Epic performances by Curtis Mayfield, George Clinton, The Neville Brothers, and Toots and The Maytals also are a part of the club’s early legacy. Since then, many artists have stopped by on their way up the ladder, including No Doubt, Black Eyed Peas, Mumford and Sons, Childish Gambino, and many many more.
Major artists have done underplays at the venue in recent years, including The Killers, The Red Hot Chili Peppers (who also played the club for 200 people in 1985), Jimmy Buffet, Willie Nelson, Ben Harper, Damian Marley, and Tom Jones. And, perhaps most famously, the Rolling Stones played a private event here in 2015.
Voted San Diego's Best Live Venue. The internationally acclaimed Belly Up Tavern located in Solana Beach, has a long history of bringing great live music to the San Diego area.
