San Diego Is A Ghost Town Right Now & It Is Awesome

image

This is one of the best 2 week stretches in SanDiego (and probably any transplant-centric city) . Everyone leaves and goes back from whence they came for the hollidays. I dont like being cold or having the threat of snow hanging over my head so I stay out on the West Coast and I get to have the city to myself. Its kind of nice being in a major American city (we can debate whether SD is a major or a mid-major some other time) when its essentially populated by a skeleton crew. Downtown was whisper quiet yesterday, Ocean Beach is like a high school on senior skip day today. I love it, its great, like I can stretch out a little bit. Theres always a seat open at the bar, there arent any lines at the grocery store or post office or DMV or wherever and the traffic lightens up pretty dramatically. Not to mention that orphan holidays are the best holidays. Overall just a downright enjoyable time to be in America’s Finest City.

PS –
This is doesnt hurt my argument for staying at the beach for the hollidays:

So I Guess I’m Assembling a Real-Life Scooby Doo Team Now?

Mystery+Machine

I guess this is where my life has come to now.  In my late 20’s and all I want to do is assemble a kick ass Scooby Doo Team but whatever, the heart wants what it wants.  (It’s crazy how somethings in life just are.  Just not really meant to be understood. Right Bobby Griffin x3?) Plus I’m going to be the co-owner of my very own thoroughly kick ass gold mining ghost town ft/ a bar and liquor license very shortly that would be a perfect setting for a little Scooby Dooin’ around.  From what I envision a Scooby Doo Team  would basically consist of hanging around getting stoned with your friends in a bitchin’ custom van, go on some random adventures, eat sandwiches and solve a few mysteries.  I LOVE all of those things!

I would like to campaign right here and now for Shaggy being the sneaky greatest role of all time.  Sure, it’s true that Fred is definitely putting the screws to Daphne but that leaves Velma all cold and alone on those long nights in sketchy ass remote locations.  She may be a tad on the mousey side but I have to believe there’s a little sex kitten locked up in there.  Don’t know why, just a hunch.  It’s not like Shaggy would really even have to try that hard, Velma is a girl and girls are infinitesimally jealous if one of their friends is getting some steady D right in front of them.  Amplify that by 1000x when said girls are part of a traveling foursome in a shaggin wagon.  Let Fred romp around all day and night with the two chatty broads while Shaggy wanders around kickin it with Scoob doin the whole getting stoned eating sandwiches bit.  To surmise Shaggy gets to hang out with his dog, smokin J’s, eatin snacks and then returns to the van for some effort-free sex with a slightly frumpy but overall cute girl.  Shaggy.

Wait wait wait, are you telling me there is an opportunity to buy a whole goddamn town? I think that’s whats going on here.  The original post is quite lengthy so lets break it down and take a look at some of the finer points of this sweet, sweet ghost town:

– Want to buy a ghost town with a bar and liquor license? Expand it into a unique getaway! Perhaps the most remote “restaurant” in Northern California. 9.8 acres. The property includes the “town” — which is just the bar, 3 rundown cabins and the acreage.

We will consider offers.
