Lemon Grove, CA City Guides

1. Dirk’S Niteclub

City: Lemon Grove, CA
Category: Nightlife
Telephone: (619) 469-6344
Address: 7662 Broadway Street

Description: Dirk’s fun party atmosphere is a big draw for the 35-to-50 age group—you know the people, the ones who remember Buffalo Springfield, Fleetwood Mac, and Sting. And college students who like this vintage music come here, too. Dirk’s is popular, and the best part is that the classic rock is live on the weekends. Wednesday is karaoke night. Call to find out about upcoming special events such as the 1950s theme parties. Although the venue is super plain, everyone in the East County, from city mayors to college students, gives this club a thumbs-up. There’s never a cover charge to get you in the door.

2. Gtm Discount General Store

City: Lemon Grove, CA
Category: Shopping
Telephone: (619) 460-2990
Address: 7663 Broadway Avenue

Description: This is a discounter with a true no-frills ambience. These stores specialize in merchandise that’s discounted because it’s slightly damaged (for example, a somewhat crushed and taped-up box) or because the original store isn’t carrying the item anymore. The products come from suppliers such as Costco and 130 other vendors. We’ve found bargains on everything from beauty aids and stretch pants to pet food and whole-bean coffee. Plan on a stop at GTM if you love a deal that feels like a real bargain, especially on items you use every day.
