   This edition of the Biter takes us to the “Most                                               Hop by the Sea
Southwesterly Bar in the United States”. The Forum was our                                      (Portwood Pier Plaza)
destination for dinner the other night. I was pleased to see      Sat           July 15          I.B. 50th Anniversary
the recent changes in the dining area. New windows with                                          Forever Classic
much better ventilation, fresh paint and new décor made our                                      Fifties Festival
experience very comfortable.                                                                     (Football Field - MVHS)
   The special of the night was the Fish Fry but I opted for      Tues          July 18           I.B. 50th Anniversary Time
one of the best burgers in town. My dining companion had                                         Capsule Opening
the fish and we were both satisfied with our meals. The fish                                     (Triangle Park)
fry has been a hit for many years and you will not leave          Fri           July 21           I.B. 50th Anniversary
wanting more.                                                                                    “Mayor’s Breakfast”
   On this night it was a bit crowded but our server was very                                    (Marina Vista Center)
made every effort to get our drink order to us and our meals      Fri – Sun    July 21 – 23       Sandcastle Weekend
were delivered in a reasonable time for as busy as it was.        Fri          Sept 15           Wine Tasting Dinner
   I have to say my burger was cooked to my request and           Sun          Aug 27           17th Annual I.B. Chamber
was quite good. The fish is deep batter fried but we always                                      Triathlon/Duathlon
ask that the fries and fish are separated; this keeps the fries   Sat – Sun    Sept 9 – 10       Imperial Beach Film
fresh and not buried under the fish.                                                             Festival
