bailey’s frozen yogurt

Over the weekend we were up in North County land and after Jake’s chiropractor appointment and some lunch (and a walk!), we stopped for a little frozen yogurt treat. I felt I needed a little extra treat since I had to work the rest of the day (boo weekend working). It felt like summer again this weekend with temperatures in the 80’s! Nothing like San Diego weather to trick you into wondering what time of the year it is.

a jaunt to la for fantastic donuts and stan lee’s comikaze

At the beginning of this month, Jake, T and I went for a quick little day trip up to Los Angeles to attend Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo. We found it a bit ironic we traveled up to LA to go to a comic convention, but you know that other convention is a little hard to get into. 

We saw tons of cool costumes but I only took a photo of this Jurassic Park cosplay. That blurry bit is her showing off a barbasol …

[revisit] college sub shop

On a recent weekend, Jake, T and I went and revisited the College Sub Shop off El Cajon Blvd in the SDSU College area. We wanted some cheap and tasty eats and the College Sub Shop fits the bill for cheap sandwiches. Imagine our surprise though when we walked in and noticed the place got a bit of a facelift! Jake noticed a price increase first whereas I noticed the place looked a lot spiffier.

The shop’s original owner wanted to …

lucky’s golden phenix restaurant [revisit]

It’s been over four years since I posted about Lucky’s Golden Phenix Restaurant back in 2011. 

I’m happy to report not a whole lot has changed. Jake and I brought T here for breakfast one recent Saturday morning. It wasn’t too crowded in the restaurant and it didn’t take long for Lucky to swing by and say hi to us.

A few things on the wall have been added or swapped out but the rest of it looks about the same.

sin city burger at smashburger + giveaway

Hello to you on this fine Friday morning! Let’s talk a little bit about Smashburger. Cause I ate there recently. This is a foodie blog after all. We talk about food around here!

Jake and I hit up Smashburger after they graciously gave me some coupons to check out a couple of burgers. When we were ordering the sign above totally caught my eye. Mmm, chocolate peanut butter shakes! I haven’t had one in awhile (these babies have already existed at …

cafe hue [revisit]

After dinner at Bistro Kaz, Laura and I walked over to get some dessert at Cafe Hue. I haven’t been to Cafe Hue in years! It was about time to check this place out again.

It looked pretty much the same to me. Gelato case in front, couches in the back. The menu was set up differently but pretty much had all of the same items on it.

After we both placed our orders, we sat over on the comfy couch. 

Laura got …
