The State of Snooze
The life and times of an AM Eatery.
Meet JD our "Farmer in the Del" GM of our newest Snooze in Del Mar CA
Hey everyone! JD here. Writing a Blog from one of the coolest places on earth…. Del Mar California.
Wow what a location for our new baby snooze to take its first steps. It has it all; the ocean, the beach,
dudes on surfboards, chicks in bikinis. Is this really my job…. For now a little beach combing
is definitely in order. I’m really getting to dig my surroundings out here. It’s not hard. The weather is
75-85 every day. Couple clouds here and there and a nice ocean breeze comes off the beach and right into
my apartment. The summer gloom is starting to fade and the sun in taking over! Yes! Just in time for a Snoozy grand
opening and boy do we have some partying to do! We love to open our stores with local organizations as the benefactor.
Our opening partners at Del Mar are three awesome orgs that totally kick butt for good things. We have
The San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy. This is a vital area for the coast. Many people have volunteered and
made a difference is making this land safe again for birds fish and hey lets face it….Humans. This is a huge tract
of land that goes inland for 10’s of miles. We are super stoked to have them as opening partners.
Secondly, we have The Del Mar School Education Foundation. This is a totally 100% voluntary group of moms
and dads that raise funds for needed school activities like music, art and many other programs that went the way of the
budget knife in 2008. These people work really hard to make a better community and we couldn't be happier to be
partnered with them. Helen Woodward Animal Center is our third. This foundation is huge. It covers 13 acres in Rancho Santa Fe.
This facility houses so many animals I couldn't even list them all! They help every type of animal and
are very proud that they have never killed an animal! These are our type of people and we can’t wait for these parties!
Leaving one Snooze to start another can evoke some serious emotion. If you know me its not that hard to get
the emotions flowing. When I saw the sign “Leaving Colorado” on the side of the express way I had a lump in my
throat. I have lived in Denver for 17 years. When I came to Denver I fell in love with the city. Laid back,
fun and they produce more intoxicants than any other state. Colorado will always hold a place in my heart. The move out
here was pretty smooth. Fortunately I love the desert so it wasn't so bad with air conditioning. On the motorcycle the
Mojave was brutal. 124 degrees for 5 straight hours. OMG and I don’t mean the French toast. But all is well
and I made it. Hillcrest has welcomed me with open arms and the community of Del Mar is Tickled Pink to have us
coming in September. So hey if your headed to San Diego…. Look me up. You can even borrow my board if you need
one. I can’t wait to serve breakfast in Del Mar.
