Fish Tacos in Coronado

Both Coronado and neighboring San Diego are known for several things: perfect weather, endless beaches, the San Diego Zoo and fish tacos. 

And, we take our fish tacos very seriously.

Restaurants and food trucks alike pride themselves on the…

"West Side Story" Dazzles at Coronado's Lamb's Players Theatre

Lamb's Players Theatre aims to "tell good stories well," and once again they have chosen wisely. Their newest production, West Side Story, is a typically elaborate musical that director Deborah Gilmour Smyth has adapted perfectly to fit the small 350-person theater.

The stage is set for NYC streets in the 1950s. Chain link fences, metal fire escapes, and graffiti windows line the black walls. Lamb's talented scenic designer, Mike Buckley, has cleverly incorporated…

You might have thought it was a wedding in the midst of children playing, bike riders, and smokey barbecue wafts. White chairs and flowers adorned the small carved out area.

But it was not a wedding. This was the first annual Memorial Wreath Launch for victims of the unprotected bridge. What is not…
