Ranch & Coast: What is your favorite local restaurant? Dagmar Midcap: I rarely eat out, but for a Friday night treat in-between newscasts, nothing cheers me up like Havana Grill. The lively music, smiling faces, and of course the mouthwateringly flavorful, organic, and thoughtfully selected meals — it's a joyful place, and always takes the edge off a dark day of news. R&C: How do you spend a day when you're not in the NBC studio? DM: If the house is clean (and that's a big "if"), I'll pile the pups in the car for a two-hour romp through some of my favorite nature trails. It's where I recharge. R&C: Do you have a favorite place to take out-of-town guests? DM: It depends on the guest, but the visit usually consists of a tour of San Diego's natural beauty. R&C: In your opinion, what makes San Diego such a vibrant place in which to live and work? DM: Our communities that take on the attributes of our spectacular and varied geography. We are blessed with some of the most diverse topography and climate zones in the U.S., all smashed into about 50-by-80 miles! Unique communities from Julian to Barrio Logan to Escondido provide unending outdoor and cultural adventures. R&C: Which local charitable cause(s) are near and dear to your heart? DM: Anything creature related — too many to list just one. From the human standpoint, organizations such as Voices For Children. Really anything that speaks for those who do not have a voice to speak for themselves. R&C: Is there anything else you really love about San Diego that we're not asking you? DM: The weather, of course. The NBC 7 San Diego meteorologist with the distinctive name is also a passionate conservationist whose series, Down to Earth with Dagmar, showcases her investigations of creatures large and small in addition to climate and weather-focused explorations both local and global. Originally from Vancouver, Canada, the outdoor-loving Midcap makes the most of the active lifestyle that's endemic to her adopted hometown. Dagmar Midcap PHOTO BY VINCENT KNAKAL
