Eschewing the over-the-top costumes and writing that typify many other murder-mystery dinners, The Dinner Detective San Diego’s cast of improvisational actors blends in with audiences, holding secrets tight to their chests while steering each night’s tension-filled storyline. After a diner is found murdered, a resident detective helps lead the investigation, allowing guests to interrogate one another with Tickle Monster tactics to distinguish the culprit among the crowd of fellow diners and dissembling thespians. Multicourse meals keep bodies well fueled during spurts of crime-solving intuition, and a prize basket awaits the gumshoe who comes closest to solving the case.

Breaking Bread's owners, Patrick and Jimmy Totah, founded the artisan sandwich shop in 2010 in order to bring back what they deemed the "lost art of sandwich making." The comestible craftsmen stock their menu with more than 20 made-to-order specialty sandwiches, assembled from locally sourced Golden Gate Meat Company meats and freshly baked Acme Bread Company bread, as well as house-made soups and hand-tossed seasonal salads. In addition to shunning sandwiches made with gunpowder, the duo shuns "sandwiches that just filled you up, rather than nourishing you and making you happy," and thus they slather their edible stacks with 12 house-made spreads, such as citrus mayo, and ingredients such as crisp Hobbs bacon, albacore tuna, and Haas avocados. The Totahs' menu also features a lineup of foamy lattes and a leafy potpourri of teas.
