One is the long-time owner of the Casbah, the other has directed videos for Pinback and The Blackheart Procession, and together they own & operate one of the best places to get a cocktail and a bite in San Diego: Starlite.

Pizza On The Go? Chicken In a Hurry? Manchester Orchestra tell Hilary about what they ate as kids – they also chat about where they eat when they’re on the road now that they’re all grown up and in a super rad band! Plus, go behind-the-scenes at a 91X monthly music meeting and hear from the 91X staff about what they’re listening to and where they’re eating here in San Diego. SCRUMPTIOUS!
He's in a billion local bands and has played with Empire of the Sun, TV on The Radio, and Big Daddy Kane - and you may have eaten at one of his family's food establishments here in San Diego! Hilary eats with drummer Jake Najor and learns that for such an accomplished musician, he's really just a humble guy at heart.
In the second half of Hilary’s conversation with Kory Stetina of Kindred, they (finally!) get into the food & cocktail program. Fair warning: this episode is best enjoyed with a Memphis BBQ Jackfruit Sandwich and a Gloom Coil cocktail. Dig in!
In the first of a two part conversation, Hilary sits down with Kory Stetina of the incredibly rad Kindred in South Park to talk vegan food, hardcore, and collaborative spirit that touches every part of the Kindred experience.
Even Davey Havok (of AFI & Dreamcar) chimes in to profess his love. Dig in!
I set out to interview Chef James Montejano for this episode, but when he said he’d rather we talk about (and eat at) Chef Davin Waite’s Wrench and Rodent Seabasstropub in Oceanside, I had no idea I was in for one of the (truly, mind-blowingly) best meals of my life!
Over thirteen different fresh donuts and Montreal bagels with custom-blended cream cheeses, Hilary’s conversation with Brad Keiller of Nomad Donuts covers everything from the Canadian metal scene to North Park’s demand for vegan donuts, among other things. Enjoy!
Brad of Nomad Donuts gives Hilary a tour of their North Park location, from the giant hot water heater to a piece of equipment named Sir Mix-A-Lot, with browned butter and color-coded tongs thrown in for good measure. Don’t slip on the floors as you go along for the ride!
In this inaugural episode, Hilary heads to one of her favorite neighborhood spots in Birdrock & sits down with Chef Christan Fiol and Wheat & Water’s co-owner, Ted Cochrane for a conversation about octopus, Billy Corgan, and béchamel sauce. Dig in!
