At The Shack in La Jolla, you might just be lucky enough to run into local San Diego legend and community fixture James Forbes. If so, make sure to buy him a jack & coke, but first ask if 'Mr. Scary' is in. The Shack has provided great beer selections and premium liquors to the local La Jolla crowd for decades, and over the years has developed quite a colorful history. One of the more famous incidents surrounding The Shack's aura, involves the missing toilet tank lid in the men's bathroom, which is worth a trip to go see. Many have speculated upon its wherabouts, and the tall-tales concerning its disappearance have become tradition. One of the many explanations offered, has it that two betrayed local San Diegans, stole it one night in a calculated scheme to get a deranged female stalker off of the object of her affection's back. After you throw a few down, make sure to do like La Jollans do and go across the street for some Los Dos! Nothing like a good late night Doser.
