Top Gun Barbecue

It's been quite a trip to San Diego. We had a blast, and now we're enjoying a nice holiday weekend to wrap up our vacation that was tagged on to my conference.

A few nights ago we had a great time eating at Kansas City Barbeque in San Diego. In addition to having delicious barbecue, it is the location for the "sleazy bar scene" in Top Gun.

The staff was very friendly and invited us to take pictures and even play the piano from the movie. (Yes, Jake is wearing a luchador wrestling mask in the picture.)

Don't worry, she didn't have an adult beverage just enjoyed the atmosphere.

A waitress chimed in "If you had to hear 'Lost that Lovin' Feeling' 20 times a day you would've broken it too." :)

It was definitely another fun memory for the family.
