California Taco Club opens at PB’s Breakfast Republic

Breakfast Republic owner Johan Engman has opened California Taco Club, a walk-up Mexican food service window at the Pacific Beach location of his Breakfast Republic restaurant at 4465 Mission Blvd.

California Taco Club serves tacos, burritos, ceviches and housemade horchata for take-out and patio seating.

This follows Engman’s opening of Eggies out of a 205-square-foot container adjacent to Breakfast Republic, serving breakfast sandwiches.

VFW, American Legion work to upgrade PB location

The Veterans of Foreign Wars and American Legion of Pacific Beach are trying to upgrade their building at 853 Turquoise St. and expand community outreach and are looking for donations.

To raise money in the past, the nonprofits VFW Post 5985, American Legion Post 552, Sons of the American Legion Squadron 552 and American Legion Auxiliary Unit 552, all of which have the same home, have held fundraising events, provided meals for sale and rented the building’s hall. But because of the coronavirus pandemic, the post has been closed
to the public since mid-March.

The groups also are seeking new members. For more information about donations and memberships, contact VFW Post 5985 Commander Mike Hill at (858) 454-7440.
