Default Good pubs in downtown San Diego, near Petco

Looking for a good place to eat before the game, and I want to make sure there will be a good taplist as well...

any suggestions?

Go to the Gaslamp district. Too many places to mention.

Tons of douchy clubs.

If you want the best selection downtown, there are two places. One is Downtown Johnny Brown's and the other is The Neighborhood.

http://www.downtownjohnnybrowns.com/

http://www.neighborhoodsd.com/

JB's is a bit further from the park, but has been around longer. Neighborhood is a little more upscale, and typically has really good handles, but I hate the vibe of the place. That's not to say I won't go there, I just feel like I'm in a yuppie trap and I never quite get in the mood of the place.

That said, I think the Neighborhood being closer, with great food and a good tap list will be your best bet.

I wanted to go to Neighborhood, but the food was deemed too pricey.

We decided to go to http://wolffysplace.com/contact.html

We're going Friday, they got 13 taps. Lots of stone, some Lost Abbey, Airdale.

I'll post back what I think...

Edit: And... uhm yeah. I know about the Gaslamp. I work at the Convention Center a couple times a year...
I was looking for more unknown spots. Neighborhood would have been goos but it was voted down.

You might want to try The Waterfront over in Little Italy. It's a quick cab ride from Petco.

Little Italy has some unbelievably kick-arse restaurants as well.
