Long Weekend in San Diego

I'm still missing the ocean view, spa music at the Estancia Resort, and happy hours with my best friends in San Diego.

After posting my foodie experience at Caroline's Seaside Cafe, I got a few questions about other places that I'd recommend in San Diego.  What better to recommend other places than a quick trip recap?
I was in San Diego for a long weekend with my best friends.  We arrived late Wednesday night, went to bed, and woke up to growling stomachs and a serious need for some coffee.  Our trip started out on the right foot at Caroline's for breakfast, and we then piled into an uber and headed to our hotel, Estancia Resort and Spa (see my post here and my full write-up on MyRedGlasses).

The rest of our trip was made up of a spa visit, pool time, a hike down to the nude beach, and plenty of fun dinners and happy hours.  A few of the places we hit up:

Jake's Del Mar - We heard fantastic things about Jake's and couldn't resist cocktails by the water.  We shared a few appetizers, had a glass of wine, and walked down to the beach to kill time before heading to a comedy show at The Comedy Store.

The Marine Room - GO.  This place is perfect for a date, nice dinner, or drinks with the girls.  There's not a bad seat in the restaurant.  Go around sunset for one of the best views you'll have.

That view, though!

Black's Beach - I definitely need to throw in a warning here.  Only go to Black's Beach if you're comfortable with nudity and seeing a handful of old men with their junk out.  We didn't mind and it made for some good stories.

Westfield UTC - Great shopping and tons of good restaurants: Somehow we ended up in Sears.
Lemonade San Diego
The Crab Hut - highly recommend.  There are a few scattered around the San Diego area.  I've been twice and can't get enough.  It's the perfect place to go with a group of friends to get sloppy and share some amazing seafood.

San Diego Zoo - No explanation needed.  A must-see if you visit San Diego, but try go on a weekday if you can.
