Matt is a San Diego Padres superfan and expert on the
Petco Park experience. He’s also an SDTA Ambassador

Excited for the MLB All-Star Game?
I can’t to see the best players in the
world and watch the long balls of the
Home Run Derby flying on top of
the Western Metal Supply Building.
Any tips on navigating Petco Park?
Get to the Gaslamp Quarter early, as
there is so much to explore. Head
to the top of the Western Metal Supply Building in left field (especially
during batting practice), visit the
Tony Gwynn statue, and try the local
food and craft beer.
Favorite neighborhood to explore?
Little Italy. Pappalecco feels like a
café right out of Florence. There’s
bocce ball at Amici Park, the Saturday morning farmers’ market, incredible live music at The Music Box
and great food at Bracero Cocina.

Best thing about San Diego living?
Drive 20 to 30 minutes in any direction and you’ll find diverse neighborhoods, beautiful beaches, mountains,
valleys and even another country!
Must-dos for visitors? Sunday
brunch at Tom Ham’s Lighthouse
on Harbor Island, or lunch on
George’s at the Cove’s Ocean
Terrace in La Jolla.
Secret spot in San Diego? I love
hopping on a bike and cruising
down Adams Avenue through three
very different neighborhoods:
University Heights, Normal Heights,
and Kensington. You can pop into
different shops and bars. The key to
this “secret” is to arrive at the Bleu
Bohème in Kensington at 5:00 p.m.—
my favorite happy hour in town.
