pinkberry / new flavors + 10 cent frozen yogurt

Pinkberry is really more of a big deal to our northern neighbors but we’ve managed to hang onto two locations down here in San Diego. Pinkberry is celebrating it’s 10 year anniversary this year with a fancy, new, cheap special that I’m sure will get you in a tizzy. That is, if you love tasty frozen treats, which you should.

On Friday, January 30th (aka TOMORROW) you’ll be able to score $.10 cent Pinkberry! You’ll get a small cup with your …

deli sushi and desserts / miramar

I’m always poking around on Yelp at lunchtime to see if anything new has popped up in my office’s area. And there was something new! A sushi place pretty close by. My cohorts and I went to check it out. It’s called Deli Sushi and Desserts.

I didn’t take a photo of the outside but it’s totally in a warehouse area with a little banner declaring it’s presence. “I’m here! I’m here!” it tries to shout, but your mind is like, …

wing crawl / san diego wing week

San Diego Wing Week is here!

It’s a week long event that offers special deals on wings – mostly $5 baskets of wings. There are also $10 deals, usually wings and beer, available at all participating locations. Tomorrow (the 20th) is the last day for San Diego Wing Week so I felt it was my duty to post about this today instead of another Portland post (but that’ll be later this week).
This time around my crawl cohorts included: Jake, Laura, Lynn …

restaurant week preview at monello in little italy

I was invited to check out a preview of San Diego Restaurant Week this year and my choice of restaurant was Monello in Little Italy. Jake and I first visited Monello back in December 2013 and I remember loving their homemade pasta so I was looking forward to a revisit.
We were warmly greeted by the manager of Monello, Paul, who was delightful and really engaging. I saw him constantly interacting with all of the guests dining in the restaurant that …

ariana produce and cuisine / mira mesa
January 15th, 2015Mary, Mira Mesa, San Diego Countymary 8 Comments

Last month CC and TC of Pink Candles at Ridgemont High came up to my ‘hood to have lunch with me! I picked a tiny little spot that I had seen a few times but never dined at. I forgot to take an outside photo but this lunch spot is actually inside of a Middle Eastern market called Ariana Produce and Cuisine. The market is in a strip mall on Camino Ruiz. A 7-11 is nearby as well as Rita’s Italian Ice, …

lumberyard tavern / encinitas
January 14th, 2015Encinitas, Mary, San Diego Countymary 4 Comments

Last month I was invited to check out Lumberyard Tavern up in Encinitas. I brought Stacey along with me to check it out. Whenever a place has a long whiskey menu, I figure Stacey is the one to bring along.

[kentucky koolaid and an old fashioned / $8]
I hardly drink these days but Stacey insisted I at least try something. Fine, okay. I ordered a totally girly fruity sounding drink called Kentucky Koolaid with bulleit rye, muddled (smoooooooooshed) blueberries, agave soda …

85c bakery

85c Bakery opened up in San Diego back in November 2014 and I remember there being so much hype about it! There are a few in the north land (aka Orange County/LA) and I read about long lines over opening weekend. I decided to wait a bit before venturing over there last month for the first time. I’d hadn’t been to any of the other locations, even though I’d heard so much about them. Long lines pretty much keep me …

salt & cleaver

Salt & Cleaver is a restaurant located over in Hillcrest. I remember when they were talking about opening this place in San Diego that originally they wanted to call it “Abe Froman’s” from a character in “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”. Abe Froman was the “Sausage King of Chicago” in the movie and I thought it would have been a much cooler name, but hey… it is what it is. Jake and I first sampled Salt and Cleaver earlier this year …
