the patio on lamont street / pacific beach

I was recently invited to come and check out The Patio on Lamont Street (there are actually two locations now, the other in Mission Hills). Jake was originally supposed to go with me, but he ended up having to work, so I took my parents and Maya with me.

This is a view of the patio area later in the evening when with the lights lit up. It gave the area a wonderful warmth!

There was also an …

laser tag and ocean rainbow ice cream / oceanside

T recently had a birthday (SIXTEEN!) and we had a weekend of all “Stuff T Wants To Do”. Actually, the laser tag was what he wanted to do and the ice cream was what I wanted to do. But it seemed silly to say “Mostly Stuff T Wants To Do”. But he ate some ice cream, so we’ll count it as some other stuff he wanted to do.
We started the day by going to Tip Top Meats for all-you-can-eat-meats breakfast. …

zpizza recently invited me to have a pizza party in my own house (or in this case, Jake’s house) and I gladly accepted. (A night of no dishes, woo!) zpizza wanted to showcase a few new pizzas from their tasting kitchen. These are all experimental pizzas that might be making it onto their menu soon. Let’s see what they brought over and after you read this, you can enter a little giveaway (or… you can skip to the end. It’s …

naseems bakery and kabob / sorrento valley

Our office moved last fall closer to Sorrento Valley. This is one of the places I discovered this summer with Minion and Matt, my co-worker cohorts. The very first time we tried to visit was during the lunch rush and the place was packed with all of the Qualcomm workers and there was not a spot to sit in Nassaems. We ended up at some generic Mexican place a few doors down where I felt crowded and claustrophobic all at …

solare ristorante / liberty station
August 14th, 2014Liberty Station, Mary, San Diego CountyMary Desjean 6 Comments

I was recently invited to dine at Solare Ristorante in Liberty Station. Jake and I visited Solare many moons ago and didn’t have a really great experience back then, but I was happy to give them another shot to see how they are doing now.

When we arrived, the hostess asked where we wanted to sit (indoors or outdoors). Jake wanted to sit outside but it felt a little too muggy to me, so I choose indoors. The hostess asked if …

jv’s mexican food / linda vista
August 13th, 2014Cheap Eats, Linda Vista, Mary, San Diego CountyMary Desjean 4 Comments

One evening after one of Jake’s softball games, we needed foooooods.

Jake plays in Pacific Beach now and we had planned on going to Mr. Frostie, but it had closed already. We ended up going over to Linda Vista and trying out another one of the “Top California burritos in San Diego” (according to Thrillist) at JV’S Mexican Food.
It was after 9PM and the tiny parking lot was full. What. We ended up having to park on the street.
I didn’t take …

perry’s cafe / old town
August 8th, 2014Mary, Old Town, San Diego CountyMary Desjean 11 Comments

I was up quite early one morning last week to drop my folks off at the airport. I decided to treat myself to a little early morning breakfast before work. It was a little after 6am and the sun hadn’t fully popped out yet. It was odd being up and about that early.

I decided to hit up Perry’s Cafe in Old Town. I hadn’t visited in many years and when I did it was late on a Saturday morning when …

south cali steak burger bar / chula vista
August 1st, 2014Cheap Eats, Chula Vista, Mary, San Diego CountyMary Desjean 8 Comments

Last weekend before we went to go see Gabriel Iglesias in The Fluffy Movie, we stopped by this place in Chula Vista for a little lunch first. It’s called South Cali Steak Burger Bar.

It’s not much to look at from the outside and I’m sure you’d easily bypass this place just driving by on the road. There are three parking spots in the front.

Inside there’s about 9 tables, one is a big table for larger groups (the one behind Jake …
