My husband and I decided to do a last minute trip to Julian so I went on the computer and did a crash course on the area. First thing I looked for was the local watering hole. I found it "Bailey's BBQ and Tavern" Well we left midday and we found the perfect parking spot under a big shade tree. We walked to Bailey's which only took 5 minutes if that and went into the tavern and sat up at the bar. We ordered a late lunch and a cold drink and began to soak up the local culture, and what a friendly culture it is! We started talking to everyone as if they were our friends and found out that a band from Oceanside was playing that night and the clincher was that Greg Douglas a guitarist from Steve Miller Band was going to be there. I was sold and so was the hubby, we then asked around for the hotel that the locals recommend. The Julian Lodge was on everyones lips and the bartender said if we mentioned Bailey's we would receive a 10% discount on our room. Well I called the lodge from the bar and spoke to the nicest woman she had one room left we took it. I asked her if she needed a credit card to hold it and she said no! That is amazing. We showed up at the lodge an hour later I walked in while the clerk was telling a woman that they had no rooms available I was nervous thinking she might have given my room away, to my suprise it was waiting for us! Anyway to make this long story a little short the room was clean and comfortable it is small but charming. They served a continental breakfast that was nice. Yes we did get the 10% off. Make sure you stop off at the honey shop. We will be going back!
