Ritual Tavern

Last week I had a beer and a burger at Ritual Tavern in Northpark. It's on 30th, quite a ways up from Golden Hill. Ritual is a great locals joint, with a wide variety of local beers (San Diego has an amazing array of local breweries!) and great, home-made food. They even proudly make their own ketchup and mustard!

We sat at the bar and talked a bit with the barkeep, and a couple of locals having a beer. One of the guys was a Mexican who's had run-in both with police in San Diego, and in Mexico. Sounds dicey, I know, but he was really a cool cat, and his perspective was enlightening.

I'm gonna like this place.
