I love your new tag photo, Chris, but I have no idea where it is. So far, Google has not been my friend. If nobody gets this in the next couple of days, may we have a clue, please?

I think know where it is. Neener neener! Too bad I haven't had time to get there.

If you have time, you should make it a Mission to get there, since today is such a Grand and beautiful day for a ride. The sun is shining bright - like a semi-precious stone....

(wondering if I am wrong on the location!!)

Crying or Very sad emoticon I coulda told ya that! It's also not at Jewell and Grand in Mission Beach. (But yesterday was a gorgeous day to ride around all over looking for it!)
Google still isn't my friend. Looked for frieze, mural, matador, bullfight, flamenco dancer(s) in San Diego, Point Loma, etc. So far, all I know for sure is where it isn't. Do you have a wider angle photo where we can glean some info from the surroundings? I can barely see cars parked to the right, but it's not enough to give it any context. C'mon, Chris, don't keep us in suspense like this! Just a small clue? Pretty please?

here is the only other picture i have of the spot.
not sure how much help that will be.
you could cheat and call the phone number on the banner.
it is in the pacific beach area, but not near the water.
it used to be a spanish restaurant, years ago
has been vacant for some time.
i hope it doesnt get remodeled out of existance.

Thanks for the second pic, Chris. I could just barely make out the address on the right side. That was enough to let Google be my friend again
It's the former Tablao Flamenco restaurant, 3567 Del Rey Street at Bunker Hill Street

Ride here tomorrow. It's gonna be gorgeous! Have an over-priced burger at the lodge and enjoy the priceless views!

This is right up Ian's alley. Maybe he can ride his P with the new motor that he won from Motorsports Quinceanera and take a picture...before I do.

Yes, that's right around the corner! I'm going to have to burn the midnight oil rewiring my stator so I can get a head start!

On that note, back to work!

Come on, you metro kids - get up early and go to The Grill for breakfast. Their corned beef hash with poached eggs is really good! Besides, if Ian is burning the midnight oil, you're sure to beat him there.

Aaaaah, no need to be skeered. You coulda got a little closer.

Great job with all the tags in one day, guys!! For our out of town friends who may be interested, that was Torrey Pines golf course in La Jolla, The Pyramid on Miramar Road across from the Marine Corps Air Station and the Vespa dealership on University in Hillcrest. It's not too late to sneak in one more. How about it, Todd? Whacha got?

Todd's tag, Wyland mural #64 "San Diego Migration" is on the side of San Diego National Bank, 1420 Kettner

It was such a nice surprize to see Gitta and Ol' Red! We talked forever in the parking lot after the photo op, and Gitta graciously let me have the next tag. For those of you who don't already know her, she is one special Bastard!

The next tag is very close to the last one:
