Lighting up the sky is a holiday tradition at the Manchester Financial Centre in the Bankers Hill neighborhood. On the rooftop of the 13-story building, you'll find Mister A's, a culinary landmark offering a sophisticated menu and breathtaking views of San Diego. For more than 50 years, some 5,000 colorful lights have illuminated the building, a tradition started by John Alessio, Mister A's original owner. At the top of the building, 192 feet from the ground, a Christmas tree lights up. On clear nights, the spectacular light display can be seen from as far away as Tijuana.
