Hello there and welcome to San Diego. It appears you have already read your custom poem and agreed to go on a date with Ari. You may or may not know this but Ari actually grew up in San Diego spending the first 12 years of his life living in both the south and north county of San Diego; He was then sent to Roswell, NM to the New Mexico Military Institute for his first two years of High School. He then returned to San Diego for his last two years of High School graduating from Torrey Pines High in Del Mar.

Back to the date… Dress is casual. Make sure to bring a change of clothes, swimsuit, and a deodorant stick. The rest will be provided. Below is how the day will break down.

 1. Board and Brew Sandwiches 12:00 – 1:00pm
Started in 1979 Board and Brew is a legendary Del Mar sandwich place located on the coast line. Ari would go here many times during high school and on hot summer days after surfing. They are known for their secret sauce and amazing reviews.

2. Rock Climbing at Mesa Rim 1:30 – 3:00pm
Yes I know indoor rock climbing is old news and can be done anywhere but not like at Mesa Rim. Mesa Rim is the largest rock climbing gym on the west coast with over 30,000 square feet of climbing and besides. Rock climbing makes for a fun and exciting work out. This gym has yoga and exercise equipment but more importantly it is one of Ari’s favorite hobbies.

 3. Cliff jumping at Sunset Cliffs 3:30 – 4:30pm
Tired and sweaty from rock climbing? What better way to rinse off the sweat and get energy than jumping into the ocean off the sunset cliffs in Ocean Beach.

 4. Mount Soledad 5:00 – 6:00pm
OK you clean? You might recognize this next location from Will Ferrell’s hit movie Anchorman. At the top you can overlook the greatest city in the entire world.

 5. Fidel’s Mexican Restaurant 7-8pm
I don’t know about you but after that day I am getting hungry again. San Diego is known for its amazing Mexican cuisine. Lets go to Fidel’s in Solana Beach for some delicious mouth watering food and margaritas.

 6. Jacuzzi 9-10pm
Woooh, what a day I am tired. Lets grab a few cold bears and relax in Ari’s parents Jacuzzi. If Ari couldn’t muster up the courage to kiss you at Mt. Soledad this is where it will happen.

7.Shower/Movie/Bed 10:15pm-Morning
Wow I am exhausted how about you? Lets jump in the shower (same shower of course, go green). Now that we are all clean it is time to cozy up on the couch with a glass of wine and watch a movie while falling asleep in Ari’s arms. Sweet dreams.
