Santa Barbara: Sandbar

posted by Katie

Nick, Bears (aka Sarah) and I recently embarked on an impromptu road trip to LA in attempt to watch a filming of America's Best Dance Crew. That didn't quite work (damn you LA traffic) but we still spent a fun night in lala land hanging out with our friend Natalie and walking around Santa Monica.

The next day we headed down to Santa Barbara where Bears goes to school. It was a pretty hot day so after walking along State St. and down to the pier, we decided it would be a good idea to stop for happy hour drinks at Sandbar. Sandbar boasts a 2-for-the-price-of-1 drink special and 1/2 off appetizers from 4-8pm. Sounds like a pretty good deal until you find out that even though you get 2 margaritas for $6.50, it's really like you're only getting one cuz they make those things as weak as possible. And to add insult to injury, I'm pretty sure they make their house margs with margarita mix...gross.
