San Diego's Old Town Tequila Factory pours a good margarita for my Padre viewing

See also

I’m looking at the 2014 schedule for my Padres and the trouble with this homegrown schedule is there is nothing for the month of October listed... that’s just wrong! I know we’ll be playing somebody come October, but the question is, who will we be beating up in this year’s post season?

Can you feel it? It’s nearly baseball time. Given the Lakers are currently at 18 and 35, I just don’t see them going to the post season. Not this year for the Lakers... but if you’re hoping the Clippers go all the way, where will you go to root for your team?

The Old Town Tequila Factory Restaurant and Cantina http://www.oldtowntequilafactory.com could be just the spot to root for the team of your choice.

We all want a spot that feels like Cheers. Friendly service is the way it felt when Nancy and I went to this spot the other day. The staff made us feel at home when we went in to eat and catch the score at the Tequila Factory . I suppose I could guess the results but on this night, Marshall put up 14 points vs. Durant’s 43 points. The final of course was Oklahoma 107 LA 103... Go Clippers!

The food we ate left us wishing we’d tried something other than what we ordered. I went for a salad because I thought it would be a slam dunk but the limited parts were lethargic and had no punch. Nancy ordered a taco combo and it too lacked spirit. There was no momentum going into the last quarter but we spotted the bar with all the TVs hanging as we first went in and that is when we really started enjoying the best aspect of the Tequila Factory.

The margaritas went down easily and the beers were cold. The bartender was very accommodating. The crowd didn’t exist. We were the only patrons when we first went into the cantina but by the time the game hit halftime the crowd was there. Perhaps if the Lakers had pulled it out, the crowd would have been more appreciative, but they did not. Bring on the Padres! That was the mantra at the Tequila Factory Restaurant and Cantina on that night.

When you go there, don’t try to find parking on the street because you can park under the bar. Head up Juan Street and turn into the underground parking and take your pick. You’ll find it at 2467 Juan Street.
