What you'll do

Folks will meet at Bar Leucadian for a happy hour drink (my treat!), then head to our first spot, Fish 101 (2 blocks away). We'll grab happy hour oysters and drinks at this small local spot with incredibly fresh seafood. Next we'll see my friends at Umi* for very authentic tapas or sushi and sake before making our way to a new local brewery- or a fun beer bar with great daily specials. Along the way, I'll tell stories about the town's history, give some lessons in I-phone food photography/blogging, and stop at murals for photo opportunities!
*Umi is closed on Mondays, so if you book on that day, we will choose an alternative stop to your liking. :)
Other things to note
Besides the first drink (which is on me!) guests will be purchasing their own drinks and appetisers. We'll be hitting happy hours deals so the expense is minimal.

I was born and raised here in Encinitas with deep family roots here. However, unlike most locals, I left and moved to NYC for 15 years. I returned home last year and fell in love with my groovy little surf-town, Leucadia (what I call the “Brooklyn of Encinitas” for its funky-hip vibe). Since then, I started an Instagram account called “The Best of 101” where I photo/review hot spots along Highway 101. It's been a great way to get to know my town (and get some hook-ups!). I'm super social, and an expert at group dynamics (I have an MA in applied theater) and getting folks to have fun!

Where you'll be

Umi is a special restaurant because it is owned by a Japanese man who has brought sushi chefs and tapas chefs from Japan to prepare the food. He makes frequent trips to Japan, so he also has an extraordinary selection of sake and sochu (a Japanese drink not often served at American Japanese restaurants).

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 3 reviews.

Wil is such a great host and guide. Very knowledgeable and engaging. I never appreciated what Encinitas had to offer til his Air BnB experience. We walked a few blocks and enjoyed some tasty appetizers and fun drinks. Definitely plan on sharing and attending this experience with family and friends.

A fun and filling way to experience Leucadia! Wil is an awesome host, very friendly and excited to share his neighborhood with others. The places our group stopped at were delicious along the 101, especially Umi where we got the sake hookup! He explained to us not every tour is the same, depending on seasonality of foods, happy hours, and so on, so I would be interested in doing this tour again on a different day! I felt like I was hanging out with an old friend, not a tour guide, so that on top of all the great food and drink, this definitely lives up to this experience's title - Best of 101! Thanks Wil!
