    I am an account executive at an advertising agency in San Diego, CA.
    Grew up in NJ, went to school near AC (Stockton) worked for 2 years at Resorts casino then at the Hilton (now atlantic club).

    Moved to San Diego 2.5 years ago, I surf every morning.

    Advice on moving:
    get 3K, a friend that will let you crash on the couch. Surf your face off for two weeks, eat california burritos everyday then bust your ass looking for a job.

    you can make 17/hour cleaning boats to keep money in your pocket - BUT being from the east coast, im sure you hustle. Cali folk are slow and dumb. Make the move, you WONT regret it!!!!

    Plus the chicks out here are hot and slutty

    Yeah dude! I was sort of looking into ad agencies and marketing agencies as a way to get the opportunity to work with a bunch of different clients. I heard working with agencies is the best, as you meet tons of different clients and get a feel for different industries.That's awesome you made the move out there, I need to grow a pair and do it. Do you like what you do being an account exec.?

    Love those friends!! That's who I stay with out there. Except I fix up their house with projects while I'm there and they want me to stay longer. Wired up wifi for them off Cat5 last week. My next project in a few weeks when I go back is setting their deck up nice with some hammocks.

    Great scouting report for making the Manifest Destiny. That's all pretty accurate.

    Hey Brew,

    Serious question, actually, and maybe for Pumpmaster, too, and anyone else who is into the art of suds.

    How much would it cost to get a little sumpin-sumpin going in terms of a brewing operation. Not talking on a scale of Butttweiser, or even Dogfish Head in terms of barrels produced. Small scale, just getting it going, experimenting with brews, bringing out some tasty concoctions with limited barrel quantity production. Think: supplying a brew pub (on the premises) & local distribution on a limited scale.

    Important financial note: I already own the land, and the 20k sf building on it, and the zoning administrator has given the green light to a brewery with a little pub-cafe operation. The building is in a heavily traveled location. Got 20 foot ceilings & frontage on a street that gets 50k vehicles per day. The demographic is upper-middle-class to wealthy, with no hesitation regarding spending their money, and these people love them some craft brews. No other producers are in my county, although there are a couple in adjunct counties.
    Local govt says projected population growth in my county is 15-20% per year for the next 20+ yrs.

    Yankee. I really like the idea of a microbrew/restaurant. That way all your eggs aren't in one basket.

    Yankee, maybe you should go to one of the local breweries and ask for a little tour, I've never been to one myself, but it seems like it could be a little complicated, but, it does sound like a very good investment and you know what they say about investing....God doesn't like a coward... good luck and " stay thirsty my friend ".

    Seldom, are you trying to start a bidding war between Yankee and I for your services? Thought we were friends, dude!
