Face It, Lash It, Wax It

• 2020 San Diego's Best Winner: Lash Extension Salon/Studio | I’m excited to have the opportunity to introduce myself and share my expertise with you! I feel very fortunate to have my business within the Twin Scissors Salon in Poway where I have been a manicure client since 1999. After a hiatus from the beauty business, I reignited my love of this industry. In 2009 discovered a crazy new trend, eyelash extensions! I learned everything I could about this new service. However, I quickly realized that I missed doing facials as well and began re-educating myself with classes on anti-aging protocols, great new modalities & machines, as well as researching many skin care companies to determine which products and ingredients would work best for my clients. I look forward to working with you and making your lash and skin dreams come true. -Diedre [read more]

USS Midway Museum

• 2020 San Diego's Best Winner: Museum • 2019 San Diego's Best Winner: Museum | MIDWAY HISTORY OUR JOURNEY The USS Midway was the longest-serving aircraft carrier in the 20th century. Named after the climatic Battle of Midway of June 1942, Midway was built in only 17 months, but missed World War II by one week when commissioned on September 10, 1945. Midway was the first in a three-ship class of large carriers that featured an armored flight deck and a powerful air group of 120 planes. From the beginning of its service, the Midway played key roles in the Cold War. In 1946 it became the first American carrier to operate in the midwinter sub-Arctic, developing new flight deck procedures. The following year Midway became the only ship to launch a captured German V-2 rocket. The trial’s success became the dawn of naval missile warfare. Just two years after that, Midway sent a large patrol plane aloft to demonstrate that atomic bombs could be delivered by a carrier. Midway served with the Atlantic Fleet for ten years, making seven deployments to European waters, patrolling “the soft underbelly” of NATO. A round-the-world cruise took Midway to the west coast in 1955, where it was rebuilt with an angled deck to improve jet operations. Midway’s first combat deployment came in 1965 flying strikes against North Vietnam. Midway aircraft shot down three MiGs, including the first air kill of the war. However, 17 Midway aircraft were lost to enemy fire during this cruise. In 1966 Midway was decommissioned for a four-year overhaul. Over a chaotic two day period during the fall of Saigon in April 1975, Midway was a floating base for large Air Force helicopters which evacuated more than 3,000 desperate refugees during Operation Frequent Wind. As potential threats to the Arabian oil supply grew, and to relieve strain on U. S.-based carriers, Midway transferred to Yokosuka, Japan, making it the first American carrier home ported abroad. In 1990 Midway deployed to the Persian Gulf in response to the Iraqi seizure of Kuwait. In the ensuing Operation Desert Storm, Midway served as the flagship for naval air forces in the Gulf and launched more than 3,000 combat missions with no losses. Its final mission was the evacuation of civilian personnel from Clark Air Force Base in the Philippines after the20th century’s largest eruption of nearby Mount Pinatubo. On April 11, 1992 the Midway was decommissioned in San Diego and remained in storage in Bremerton, Washington until 2003 when it was donated to the 501(c)3 nonprofit San Diego Aircraft Carrier Museum organization. It opened as the USS Midway Museum in June 2004. [read more]

• 2020 San Diego's Best Winner: Chicken Wings • 2019 San Diego's Best Winner: Chicken Wings | At Epic Wings, our family believes in delivering not only natural and fresh food and ingredients; we believe in providing an experience and connection for your local community. That’s why, for over 30 years, we continue to be your favorite spot. It started long ago with a wing and a prayer. A few siblings decided that life in small town Upstate New York held few opportunities for wing lovers such as themselves; they needed more. They wanted people to understand and appreciate their affinity for things and wings alike…they dreamt of California. After much deliberation, with just some change jingling in their pockets, a rickety Oldsmobile -known affectionately as the Wing Mobile-, and the loving support of their father, they began their trek to San Diego. They were nervous to say the least, but confident knowing they had a recipe for success; a Buffalo Wing recipe to be exact. Little about Buffalo Wings, or any wings, was known outside of New York, but that didn’t stop them. They were met with uphill trials and tribulations but soared above adversity all the stronger. They worked tirelessly and finally, in 1982, the first Wings N’ Things opened in Pacific Beach, San Diego. Since then the company has spread its wings and grown to 17 Epic Wings N’ Things restaurants, and counting, throughout Southern California. Epic Wings is committed to fresh, quality food. We compliment our award winning wings with creamy buttermilk ranch and famous golden bread sticks made in house daily. We strive constantly to serve you the best wings… ‘n’ things this nation has ever tasted. Epic Wings… Your Spot. [read more]

Lloyd Pest & Termite Control

• 2020 San Diego's Best Winner: Pest Control | Southern California looked a little different back in the early 1930’s when my grandfather, Al, began chasing rats from local warehouses and businesses. The downtown construction boom had sent rodents scurrying everywhere. Panicked, many business owners called upon the services of Lloyd Pest Control, which, at the time, consisted of one exterminator. Rats are nocturnal, so Granddad often waited until nighttime to enter warehouses. He favored a .22 caliber rifle which he loaded with bird shot. My grandfather had a great commitment to getting rid of his customers’ pests – and an even better aim. The word got out. Before long, there were two trucks, another exterminator. Then came a lot of what, I suppose, could be termed research and development. Granddad would perform a pest elimination service, and then sit down with the business owner to discuss results and strategies for improvement. It was this concept of partnership that helped my grandfather and Lloyd Pest Control grow to be so successful. Today, two generations later, Lloyd Pest Control’s elimination service covers Southern California with more than 200 radio-dispatched trucks, 200 licensed technicians, supervisors, a Quality Control staff, an entomologist, and a biologist. But we’ve never forgotten our roots. Recently, one of our managers found a dusty ledger from the 1940’s. I thumbed through its yellowed pages. Most entries simply recorded information that customers had shared with our service men. But it got me thinking. I realize that we have become one of Southern California’s premier pest elimination companies for two reasons, both of which were handed down by my grandfather. We are committed to always finding a better way to do our job. And we still learn the needs of our customers by listening to them. Thank you for considering our family to protect your valuable investment. We look forward to working with you to keep your property pest-free for many years to come. OUR GUARANTEE If the bugs come back during your guarantee period, so will we — at no charge. And if you're not happy, we will give you a 100% refund on your service visit. [read more]

Benihana

• 2020 San Diego's Best Winner: Japanese Restaurant • 2019 San Diego's Best Winner: Japanese Restaurant | THE BENIHANA STORY Like any good story, the history of Benihana begins with the descendent of a samurai warrior and a small Tokyo coffee shop. Just after the war, Yunosuke Aoki (a samurai descendent and popular entertainer) decided to start a coffee shop with his wife, Katsu. Wanting to offer something different than other coffee shops in the area, Yunosuke Aoki rode his bike over 20 miles to purchase real sugar to serve in his shop. This flair for doing something different caught the eye of his son, Hiroaki. As did the shop’s name: Benihana. After college, Hiroaki (or Rocky, as he would become known) moved to the U.S. to pursue his dream of opening his own restaurant. One that combined his father’s flair for doing something different with food that was truly memorable. But with little money to his name, Rocky’s path was not an easy one. He started by selling ice cream on the streets of Harlem while studying restaurant management at night. The ice cream business turned out to be very profitable, thanks in part to the colorful Japanese cocktail umbrellas he added to the treats, and he managed to save up $10,000 for his first Benihana restaurant. With his seed money in place, Rocky took out a loan and used it to start America’s first Japanese teppanyaki restaurant on West 56th street. Named after his parents’ Tokyo coffee shop, Benihana opened in 1964, featuring an authentic Japanese farmhouse interior and food prepared on steel teppanyaki grills right in front of customers. His highly trained teppanyaki chefs delighted customers with intricate knife work and theatrics. Not to mention delicious food. But it wasn’t until legendary food critic Clementine Paddleford gave Benihana a rave review that the restaurant really took off, paying for itself in just six months. Soon after, Rocky opened a second Benihana in New York and a third Benihana restaurant in Chicago. By 1972, there were six Benihana locations in the United States, with more opening every day. Sadly, Rocky Aoki died in 2008 at the age of 69. But, his legacy lives on with more than 70 Benihana restaurants in the United States, Caribbean, and Central and South America, and more than 100 million meals served. [read more]

Discount Tire

• 2020 San Diego's Best Winner: Tire Store • 2019 San Diego's Best Winner: Tire Store | Our Story: How We Started Discount Tire first opened its doors in 1960, when Bruce T. Halle rented an old plumbing supply building on Stadium Boulevard in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Bruce cleaned out the building, built countertops, repainted the sign outside, and displayed his initial six-tire inventory. As the store’s only employee upon its opening, Bruce served as the tire technician, cleaning crew, salesman, and accountant. Because he didn’t have an air compressor, Bruce would even haul a portable air tank to and from a nearby gas station so that he could inflate the tires he sold. Over time, Bruce nurtured that first Discount Tire store through hard work and a governing philosophy that now serves as Discount Tire’s founding principles: treat people with respect and fairness, care for those in need, always do what is right, work hard, be responsible, and have fun. By the end of the decade, our company grew to six stores and established a strong reputation for customer satisfaction. In 1970, we moved out west to Arizona to expand our national footprint. Strategically chosen for its warm weather, Arizona offered our growing company two distinct advantages: steady seasonal business and perpetual sunshine that would preclude employees from changing tires in cold, wintry conditions. Throughout the 1970s and 80s, we expanded outward from our new home base, building stores in California, the Pacific Northwest, Texas, Florida, and other new regions. We quickly reached over 200 stores in 1990, and over 400 in 2000. Today, we are the nation’s largest independent tire and wheel retailer, operating more than 1000 stores in 35 states. We have undertaken this growth in a responsible manner, scouting every potential store location in person to ensure the store can succeed and that employees can comfortably live in the surrounding area. The Discount Tire story has been discussed as a model of strong entrepreneurship, but our success can’t be attributed to the business aspects of running a business. Instead, we’ve flourished because of the respectful, can-do attitude that began at Bruce Halle’s first store and later solidified into a company vision. Through honesty, service, and a willingness to pay it forward, we provide unexpected experiences that delight our customers and keep them coming back for more. To this day, Bruce Halle attributes the overall success of Discount Tire to these healthy attitudes and the employees who live them. From his perspective, success comes from focusing on what each person owes to his family, to the future generation of employees, and to the next customer coming in the door. [read more]

94th Aero Squadron

• 2020 San Diego's Best Winner: Brunch • 2020 San Diego's Best Winner: Buffet (Noncasino) | It would be difficult to find another restaurant with as much warmth and charm as the 94th Aero Squadron. Located inside a replica of a World War I French farmhouse, the restaurant sits overlooking Montgomery Field Airport and is packed full of military memorabilia, antique farm implements, and aviation relics. The interior is cozy and romantic, with huge stone fireplaces, masses of hanging green plants, dark wood paneling, beamed ceilings, and old airplane wings hanging over the dining area. There are even headphones at some of the tables for diners to listen to the FAA control tower. On warm evenings and at lunchtime, you can sit outdoors on a grassy embankment at umbrella topped tables and be surrounded by old model airplanes and an army jeep. ---------------------------------------- The 94th Aero Squadron was one of the first American fighter squadrons to see combat service. It scored more victories than any other American squadron during the First World War. With such famous names as Rickenbacker, Lufbery, James Norman Hall and others, it became the most famous unit of early American airpower. The World War One aviator had to have the greatest of courage. When his frail machine broke up or caught fire, he usually fell thousands of feet to his death. He flew during a time when the full color of chivalry appeared and the skies of France saw mounted warriors bearing heraldic markings ride forth for individual combat. Honor and valor were respected by both sides, and the victor toasted the vanquished. This is the spirit and the atmosphere we have tried to recreate for your dining pleasure. [read more]
