What’s a Tin Fish?

In San Diego, right across the street from the convention center, there’s a great little outdoor cafe called the Tin Fish. It’s on a little tree-covered boulevard practically in the middle of the street just as you head into the Gaslamp District. You can smell the fish frying all day and I promise you, if you ever have one of their fish tacos, you’ll be spoiled for life. The place is always busy and it takes a while to get through the line to order your food – so don’t go if you’re in a hurry. But it’s served fresh and hot and well worth the wait if you do! It’s a great spot to sit outside in the beautiful San Diego weather and enjoy great food (They do also have some tables indoors)
There are also locations in other CA cities, WA, FL and IN – Try it, I know you’ll like it!

Seafood (fried or grilled options), burgers, chicken, soups

My Faves: Fried fish tacos and fish and chips
Note: This restaurant sits right in the shadow of PetCo Park, so if there’s a Padres game it will be especially busy.

Welcome fellow Road Warriors! Like many of you, I travel for work -- A lot! But believe it or not, I actually pretty much love it. I've become a bona fide business travel tourist by finding quick things to do when I find myself with the bits of free time that we business travelers sometimes get (i.e. after meetings and before dinner.) especially if I'm in a great city like Chicago, NY or San Francisco. Because we never have much time, this blog is all about quick, easy, inexpensive/free things to do in some of the cities I travel to along with recommendations for restaurants that are great for meals with colleagues, but also perfectly comfortable for solo dining. So maybe next time you find that you have a few minutes to yourself on a business trip, before you just automatically head for your hotel room, barricade yourself in with your computer and cell phone and order room service, you'll be inspired to become a business travel tourist and start loving your business travel too. Feel free to comment on any of my posts and let me and other readers know if you have tips, or recommendations. Happy Travels!
