More generally

There are many delightful places, plates, and potions to experience in La Jolla and the greater San Diego area. Here we’ve listed a few of our favorite haunts. Sections titled “In La Jolla” are listed in order of their approximate distance from UC San Diego’s main campus and are either within conceivable walking distance or within 30 minutes travel by public transit. Please ask any of the conference organizers if you would like more recommendations for food and drink in the area. We would love to share our favorite parts of the city with you.
