The creative culinary team cooks the freshest flavors of the ocean all mixed with the heat and tradition of the robata grill. Make reservations now – this place books up quickly!
While February may be the month of romance, fine dining is not for everyone. Sometimes a date over some tasty food, a delicious beer (or two), in a casually hip environment is all the soul needs. If you have not yet been over to the newest location of the Flying Pig in Vista, we suggest you make the trip! Impress your taste buds with season chef creations, over 32 craft beers and an amazing selection of wine. Kick back and relax in this hip open environment, you won’t be disappointed.
Talk about an interactive museum experience! The Museum of Making Music has an entire gallery where you can pick up and play instruments! Never played? That’s okay! Watch video tutorials that teach you how! Oh, and YOU can even interact in their current exhibit – “Low:The Power & Beauty of Bass.” Experience the bass by seeing bass frequencies, seeing your own voice, transforming and hearing your voice into low sound, and even feeling low sound bass waves. Don’t forget to use your Museum Month pass if you visit in Feb. to receive 1/2 price admission for up to 4 guests.
