La Mesa's Secret Stairs & Yappy Hour!

Summer is a great time to hang out with friends and family and enjoy the beautiful San Diego weather! What better way to do it than with your favorite furry friends!

It's Yappy Hour time again at Por Favor Mexican Restaurant.

But first...

Before puptini time, I'll be doing a short two mile stroll of the downtown, La Mesa area. The two mile stroll will include La Mesa's "Secret Stairs"!

We'll ascend 44 steps, cross Pasadena Avenue, and continue via the remaining 16 steps and a steep paved pathway to Vista Drive. It’s only 60 steps total, but with the steep pathway it’s a good workout nonetheless! We'll give our quads a short break while we walk 0.2 miles to the next set of stairs. This time we'll climb a total of 245 steps, interrupted by two cross streets, to reach the top of Summit Drive. On reaching the 245th step, at Summit Drive, we'll be on one of La Mesa's highest knolls, elevation 830 feet. We'll continue by following Summit Drive about 100 yards to a second stairway descending east. We'll follow its 184 steps down to Beverly Drive. Then it's back to Por Favor for puptinis!!!

The Secret Stairs starts at 6pm, and we should be back for Yappy Hour around 7pm. If you just want to do the yappy hour then be at the restaurant any time between around 7.

Cheers to Puptini time!



Take 8 EAST to Spring Street. Make a LEFT onto Spring Street. Make a LEFT on La Mesa Blvd. We'll at the corner of Por Favor Restaurant.

***This is NOT an off-leash event.***

    Can me and the girls just join you for happy hour (all those steps sound like a bit much for me)? We can stroll around town a bit before you arrive, if that's ok.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
