Peri Peri brings a peppery experience to dining scene

La Jolla's dining scene is heating up with a new South African restaurant, Peri Peri, slated to open in early June. The name refers to the native fiery pepper and cooking method popularized in Mozambique.

Owner William Sussman is a native South African with more than 20 years of restaurant experience both domestically (Kalahari Café, was previously located downtown and Terrific Pacific Brewery & Grill, previously located in Pacific Beach) and abroad. The kitchen will be under the direction of Executive Chef Abel Gutierrez who was also the former chef of Sussman's other restaurants.

"This is just the concept I'm confident La Jollans will embrace," said Sussman. "Ethnic dining continues to grow in popularity and Peri Peri brings an experience unlike no other."

San Diego's oldest operating craft brewer, Karl Strauss Brewing Co., has big plans in store which include expanding distribution into Northern California; expanding its brewery to increase overall capacity; constructing "The Brewery Project", a craft beer destination open to the public complete with tours, tastings, an outdoor beer garden with wood-fired oven and food truck dock, slated to open this summer; and opening their seventh brewery restaurant in 4S Ranch which is projected to open this July.

Opening this Saturday the San Diego Museum of Man has an interesting new exhibition titled, "Ramp it Up: Skateboard Culture in Native America" which highlights the positive impact that skateboarding has had on Native American communities and traces the history of skateboarding from native Hawaiian communities through Southern California and beyond.

The exhibit arrives via the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian and San Diego is the first city outside of D.C. to host it as it begins its 12-city national tour.

Besides artwork, photos, video footage and over 20 skate decks by native artists, the exhibition features a half pipe mini-skate ramp that will be open for demos and public free skate, which was built by Spohn Ranch Skateparks.

"Ramp it Up" will run from April 28 through Sept. 9.

6 Degrees San Diego is hosting a "Foodies & Wine" from 6 to 9 p.m., May 4, where participants will partake in a six-course tasting on the art of pairing food and wine at Bice Restaurant, a live cooking showcase with Chef Mario Cassineri and Winemaker Tim Bacino of GEN7 Wines.

Cost to attend is $99 for members and $119 for non-members. Visit for menu information and additional details.

Globe veteran Scott Schwartz (A Room with a View at the Globe, The Hunchback of Notre Dame at La Jolla Playhouse) returns to direct Blair and Kinosian’s Off Broadway hit, a vaudevillian mystery musical with an energetic two-man cast. Great American novelist Arthur Whitney has been murdered at his own birthday party, and his killer could be any one of the guests. But this is no ordinary murder mystery. The entire world of this hilarious musical is brought to life by two incredible performers: one plays the detective, the other plays all 10 suspects, and both play the piano! Murder for Two is an irrepressibly wacky tour-de-force musical that NewYork1 dubbed “a must-see 90-minute jolt of caffeinated creativity!”
