Went down to San Diego with a couple buddies. 2 of them are HBT members as well (chads99svt and sirk0rebreg)

Just warning that there is alot of pics in here.. roughly 90. Gonna try to break them apart by all the different breweries and bars we went to.

Trip ended up being delayed for me by about 24hrs thanks to DIA closing from the massive amounts of snow we got within a few hours



Finally got to Vegas to meet up with some friends. From there, Chads99svt and I drove out to San Diego


Got to our hotel


Room view


Drinking and eating immediately started (some dessert they gave us after lunch)


Our 300 rental




Me, drunk, and looking at the bottom side of beer Hotel hooked us up with that mini fridge for our beer
