San Diego CityBeat Burger Week Success Stories!

 

Henry's Pub 

I think you guys did a great job with Burger Week...it was a really smart idea! There is no better way expose the burger than in the hands and mouth of the guests.  The word got out for it very well as people were calling and asking about the Burger Week specials, coming in for the specials from all around town, and people that did not know were very happy to see it happening as a pleasant surprise. We basically were launching the #cluckmoo burger with this program as well and people loved it. I think it was a fantastic avenue to use to launch the new item.  We sold 451 Burgers and 163 #cluckmoos for a total of 614 burgers. Mamamia!

 

Carnitas Snack Shack
This burger week is killing me. 125+ per day. Losing a little on cost but a lot of first timers coming in....winning!

 

SaltBox Dining & Drinking
Burger Week is a smash for us, we are killing it.  We literally are trying to keep up, they are flying out the door!  Very successful, great program...we sold over 400 burgers!!


Point Loma Beach Cafe
It's awesome...the best promotion I have ever done!


Hamiltons Tavern • Small Bar
My kitchens have been slammed daily....struggling to keep meat & bread in stock. Burger Week was completely beyond my expectations.


Veg-N-Out
We have never had a better response from any other promotion, EVER!

 

Terra American Bistro • Bunz
Terra is getting hammered.  Bunz is doing okay. A lot are getting the $5 burger, and I’m not sure what % are first time diners.  Because if they are, then it makes sense.


Salt & Cleaver
Burger week was great for us....thanks again and can't wait to work with you in the future.

The 4th Annual San Diego Surf Film Festival

The SAN DIEGO SURF FILM FESTIVAL invites everybody to come celebrate the passion that we all share for simply being in and around the ocean.


Since the festival’s inception, we have been anchored towards celebrating those who draw a different line in life. Much like the colorful characters of surfing’s past, the future of surf cinema will also be found in the underground. We champion the independent filmmaker and their quest to capture and convey the very special feeling of being a surfer. And with this in mind, we continue to present the finest independent surf films from around the globe.

 

 

San Diego may not be the birthplace of surfing but there is no denying the contributions and innovations that this beautiful city and our ocean-loving community have shared with the surfing world. Early in the 20th century, visiting Hawaiians George Freeth and Duke Kahanamoku sewed seeds into fertile soil that still flourish to this very day. Since our first waves were ridden, our surfing timeline consists of revered names as Simmons, Ekstrom, Gordon, Van Artsdalen, Frye, Diffenderfer, Hansen, Curren, Caster, Hynson, Dobson, Oakey, Benson, Lis, O’Rourke, Divine, Preisendorfer, Mirandon, Pendarvis, Roper, Thrailkill, Warner, Beal, Kenvin, Steele, Hall, Burch, Feighan, Littlemore and Baker… and this merely scratches the surface. Intertwine this amazing history with 75 miles of diverse coastline, a new crop of creative board designers and an incredibly deep talent pool, you quickly come to understand San Diego simply lives and breathes everything that is wave riding.

 

The 2015 SDSFF will highlight over 20 international films, include dozens of filmmakers and producers in attendance, Q&As, filmmaker panel and workshops, an amazing surf art gallery, surf legends and shaping demos, beach clean-ups and expression sessions, incredible live music, serendipitous live art, rad people and raging after-parties. We welcome surf enthusiasts and filmmakers from around the world to come celebrate the art of surf cinema in our beautiful hometown.
