Board & Brew has been a Del Mar staple for over 30 years. They stick to a simple menu, offering quality sandwiches and craft beer. It’s a simple concept, but Board & Brew does it really well. With a laid-back, beach-inspired environment, it’s no wonder Board and Brew has become the iconic hotspot for surfers and business professionals alike.

Quality ingredients and simple, California-style sandwich creations are what keep people coming back. The Turkado is their most popular sandwich. However, the real secret that puts Board and Brew above the rest has got to be their sauce. A sweet and sour creation, their sauce is unlike any other and goes great with any type of sandwich. Many have claimed to have developed a physical addiction to this sauce, but this phenomenon has yet to be supported by scientific evidence. Kids and adults agree, Board & Brew is one of the best spots in Del Mar to grab a lunchtime bite!

Live outside of Del Mar? Board & Brew has expanded in recent years with locations across San Diego in Scripps Ranch, Del Sur, Pacific Beach, and even two shops in Carlsbad!

Earthquake Safety

Earthquake Tips.jpg

Prepare for an Earthquake:

According to the American Red Cross

  • If you are inside, stay inside. Most injuries occur from glass, brick and other materials falling from the
    outside of buildings.
  •  DROP, COVER, AND HOLD ON during the shaking.
  • Ÿ If a table or desk is not available to get under for safety, crouch next to a wall without bookcases or windows and cover your head and neck. Bookcases and windows are hazardous since bookcases may tip over and windows may shatter.
  • If you cannot drop to the floor, stay where you are and cover your head.
  • If you are in a wheelchair, lock the brake and cover your head.
  • Ÿ If you are in bed, stay there and cover your head with your pillow

  • Do not return home until officials give you the OK
  • Stay away from flooded roads and downed power lines

Your Guide To Avoiding Financial Stress When Finding The Right Mortgage

By asking the right questions, and knowing exactly what your needs are, you can find the right loan for you. There are certain approaches that you can take while mortgage shopping that can cost or save you money.

Image result for financial stress

It is still true that the better qualifications you have, the lower your interest rate will be. However, there are mortgages available for almost everyone; it’s the interest rates or the down payments that vary.

Before speaking with a lender, know what monthly dollar amount you feel comfortable committing to. Then when you discuss mortgage pre-approval with your lender, it is easier for you to determine the monthly amount and what value of home the monthly amount translates into. Do not put yourself in the position where you will be paying more each month than you intended simply because the dream home requires it.

Image result for mortgage rates

Do your research on the types of mortgages available to you and find the one that best suits your needs. There are a number of considerations to be made in terms of finding the best mortgage for each individual:

 

 

  • What type of market are you in? Are the interest rates falling or rising?
  • Do you want a fixed mortgage rate, where you will always know what your payment is going to be?
  • What are your long-term goals? Do you intend to resell the property? Do you only need the mortgage for a short time?
