Now Open- San Pasqual Wine Tasting Room

Seaport Village has another great addition that will make the wine lovers cheer.  San Pasqual Wine Tasting Room is now open in our East Plaza next to Buster’s Beach House.

San Pasqual Wine Tasting Room comes from the famous San Pasqual winery near Pacific Beach, CA.  That’s right, a San Diego local winery. Their mission? In the late 1700's, vineyards were planted at the Misión San Diego de Alcalá, making San Diego the first area of California to witness wine-making. Centuries later, San Pasqual Winery draws inspiration from the mission legacy, its connection to the famed Rioja region (Alcalá) of Spain, and the uniquely cosmopolitan-yet-frontier old California city of San Diego.

I decided to stop by and check out this cute little tasting room and let me tell you, you’ll need to get there right away!  Great prices, beautiful view, and a friendly staff, why wouldn’t you?  San Pasqual offers 2 types of tastings- Regular which includes 5 tastings and $5 off any bottle of wine at the store.  There’s also a Deluxe tasting which includes everything from the regular tasting but with a generous pour. Plus you get to take home the glass for both tasting options.  Just like a regular Winery. 

A bottle of wine will run you anywhere between $15-$30.  The experience at this quaint little wine tasting joint?  Priceless.

Make sure to stop by our newest addition.

Outdoor Movie Night at Seaport Village

To get into the Comic Con spirit, Seaport Village is hosting an outdoor movie night on Thursday, July 24th at 8pm.

The movie- Hunger Games: Catching Fire- will be shown on a large screen in our west plaza fountain area.  

Make sure to bring a blanket, a beach chair or towels to sit on while you enjoy the show.  Alcohol is not permitted in the west plaza fountain area.

And we wouldn’t mind if you dressed up like Katniss and Peta either.

See you all then! 

FROST ME Gourmet Cupcakes Now Open

Last week, Seaport Village got some Food Network celebrities.  The much anticipated FROST ME Gourmet Cupcakes is now open at the village and the lines are not stopping.

FROST ME specializes in hand crafted, one of a kind cupcakes.  They even have gluten free options!  The delicious cupcake joint took home the trophy on Food Network’s season 9 of Cupcake Wars and with good reason.  Their cupcakes are decadent and out of this world.  Flavors include toasted coconut, lemon poppy seed, classic chocolate ganache, key lime raspberry and so much more. Move over, Sprinkles.  You’ve got some competition! 

Not only are their cupcakes extraordinary, FROST ME has the adorable store front to go with it.  Fresh flowers on the tables  and wait a minute, a 24 hour extraction iced coffee machine?! This thing is way cool.  It extracts decaf and regular iced coffee within 24 hours.  I mean, can you think of a more awesome way to brew iced coffee?

Okay okay, I’ve said enough.  You’ll have to come experience FROST ME Grourmet Cupcakes for yourself! Make sure to stop in this quaint little cupcake store to have dessert and an iced coffee.  The store is open 10am-10pm daily.
