Mike Hardin, co-owner of OB’s most famous restaurant Hodad’s, told me that his place is closed all day Tuesday, May 4th, as the TV series “Terriers” being filmed in Ocean Beach is using his place for a shoot.
“Oh, man, it’s awesome,” Mike told me. “They using Hodad’s name, my cooks, and it’s going to be an authentic version of Hodad’s.” The filming outfit is using their own waiters and waitresses who will be wearing Hodad’s T-shirts. The restaurant will return to “normal” on Wednesday, the 5th.
Hardin is still planning on opening a second Hodad’s in downtown San Diego. “We’re in the permitting process now,” he said. He hopes to open numero two at the corner of 10th and Broadway. “All roads lead to Rome,” he said, “but all buses lead to Hodad’s.”

Don Truesdail CD-Release Party a Success
Don’s CD release at Portugalia on April 29th was an historical happening. His CD, “Dasvidanya Bingoland…Hello Nancy!”, was released posthumously as he was killed a year ago in a traffic accident. Friends and community members came together in peace and love to honor the music and memory of a great man. Talented and experienced musicians performed with all their heart and soul late into the evening. Students from Mar Vista where Don taught also came out to support his CD.
