Socially Acceptable Manipulation

FUN SAN DIEGO DATE: Shopping in the Cedros Design District | DateOxygen.com

According to designer Charles Eames, “Design is a plan for arranging elements in such a way as best to accomplish a particular purpose.” Actually, design is just socially acceptable manipulation – of fabrics, food, raw materials, and your date. On this designer outing, you’ll explore elements in the Cedros Design District. First stop…a bustling beach bistro specializing in tasty pastries, unique omelets + award-winning pancakes. From there, stroll up the street soaking up countless purposeful arrangements. Try on unique clothes, contemplate modern art, admire treasures from around the world, gaze upon vibrant photography…then, taste some wine at an urban winery.

  • Add an extra dose of romance + eliminate a parking headache and take the train to Solana Beach.
  • Instead of joining the weekend herds, throw caution to the wind and play hooky from work on a Monday through Friday!


  • If you get to Claire’s between 10 a.m. and 12 p.m., you’ll be looking at about a 30 minute wait. Opt for the back patio if the weather is nice.
  • Check Groupon or Yelp for a deal at Carruth.
