Bankers Hill/Middletown

Visitor Information

Bankers Hill/Midtown is literally up the hill from downtown San Diego.  It was an early upscale neighborhood of the growing city and many Victorian mansions remain in the area. Some are still residences and some are now offices for dentists, lawyers and small companies.  Many have been restored to their original glory. Condominiums and charming older courtyard apartments share the neighborhood with commercial development.  Residents are young professionals, empty nesters and those who enjoy the pedestrian lifestyle of an urban environment.

New condominiums and apartments are rising on Laurel near Balboa Park.  Many homes have views of the ocean or the park.  All share the noise of airplanes overhead.  The flight path passes right over their heads.  Airplane watching is a common pastime. Popular restaurants in the area include Laurel, Bertrand at Mr. As with its spectacular view and Busalacci's.  The Hob Nob Cafe has been a fixture in the neighborhood for years.  There are numerous delis and small neighborhood restaurants available as well.

Balancing the demands of practicing law with those of parenthood is a juggling act and it's not uncommon for attorneys to wonder if their child will be permanently scarred when they have to miss the occassional baseball game or bedtime story due to work obligations. Join us as we attempt to debunk those fears and hear from children (both young and adult) of attorneys about how they really feel about growing up with lawyer parents. Following the luncheon attendees and their children are invited to attend a mock trial in the courtroom of Hon. Joan Weber, followed by a tour of the holding cells and courthouse! $25, Lawyers Club members; $14, children; $40, non-members; $20, students, $40 at the door, space permitting.
