Golden Nuggets: Sonny Dykes Explores the Bay Area

Bradley Leeb-US PRESSWIRE

Sonny Dykes tells us of his culinary adventures in the Bay Area and discusses some summer plans.

When Sonny Dykes says the Bay Area was a dream location for his next job, he wasn't kidding. He has been seen all over town and he plans to continue enjoying all the Bay has to offer. His summer plans include surfing, wine tasting, and continuing to sample some culinary delights.

Before the start of the season Dykes wants to do various activities in the Bay Area, unrelated to football. In addition to Bay Area classics like wine country and Alcatraz, Dykes and his family want to explore Tilden Park and get down to Santa Cruz.

"[I’d like] to check out the breaks they got out there in Santa Cruz," Dykes said. "I don’t know if I call it surfing, but I stand up on a board, let’s put it that way. Hopefully I don’t get eaten by a shark."

He also loves the food East Bay eateries have to offer, after dining at places like Zachary’s Pizza, Crepevine, and Rockridge’s Market Hall. In Piedmont, though, Dykes has his own take on a personalized Mulberry’s sandwich.

"I’d start with a lot of bacon, a little turkey, about three slices of cheese, probably a slice of cheddar, slice of Swiss, slice of American cheese, a little mustard, lettuce, and top it off with some good potato chips," Dykes said. "That’d be the Sonny sandwich, you know real healthy, but definitely a meal."

That sandwich sounds delicions, except the mustard. I don't like mustard.
