berkeley pizza / downtown san diego
July 18th, 2014Downtown, Mary, San Diego CountyMary Desjean 13 Comments

After we witnessed that pretty sunset in Mission Beach, Jake and I started thinking about dinner! He suggested we try this place he spied on Yelp called Berkeley Pizza over in Downtown San Diego. Berkeley Pizza specializes in deep dish pizza – there is no wink or trace of a thin slice pizza in here, buddy!
They have slices of pizza or you can also order a whole pie – which will take about 40 minutes to make. This is definitely …

remembering tony gwynn + petco park food
July 2nd, 2014Downtown, Mary, San Diego CountyMary Desjean 10 Comments

Jake and I have been to a few Padres games at Petco Park this year… more than any other year (so far: four games)! Half of those games have been due to the new $10 Toyota Tuesdays where you can get Toyota Terrace seat tickets for – you guessed it – $10 (did I give that one away?). Toyota Terrance is on the second level at Petco Park so it’s pretty close to the field. Good seats!

Since we have a …

southpaw social club / downtown – san diego, ca
June 9th, 2014Downtown, Mary, San Diego CountyMary Desjean 14 Comments

I waited until the very last day to use my LivingSocial deal for Southpaw Social Club. Like the LAST DAY. LivingSocial put it into the “expired” section of the app and I freaked out a little but then I realized they probably don’t expire it by time so I knew the sucker was still good. Jake came with me as my cohort for this trip (not a surprise, I’m sure) and we enjoyed a nice evening out. Lucky for us …

seasons 52 at the headquarters / downtown san diego
February 4th, 2014Downtown, Mary, San Diego CountyMary Desjean 13 Comments

Here’s my final Restaurant Week post! I’m a slacker.
I had a $25 dining card that was given to me on my last visit to the Headquarters in December. It was a crazy fun blogger thing that gave us all a glimpse into the coolness of the new Headquarters, which is located at the old Police Station Headquarters from back in the day (hence the name). I made reservations for Heather and I at 7:30 on a Wednesday night. Heather came …

rei do gado / downtown san diego
January 27th, 2014Downtown, Mary, San Diego CountyMary Desjean 8 Comments

Last week Jake and I went to Rei de Gado for the first day of San Diego Restaurant Week. $20 for lunch, man. I know SDRW is over now (though there is a Week 2 but Rei de Gado isn’t participating) – so take notes for the fall!

Now… onto my picture heavy post.

taste of downtown 2013 event recap
October 14th, 2013Downtown, Mary, San Diego CountyMary Desjean 8 Comments

I was invited to attend the Taste of Downtown by McFarlane Promos and I happily accepted. I meant to go the last two years (!!) but something came up both times and I wasn’t able to make it. Stacey was my cohort for the evening and we planned on tackling this event the simple way: just go down 5th and swing around to 6th until we hit 14 spots.
Why 14? Stacey insisted we should do one more than the last …

san diego restaurant week preview at jsix / downtown – san diego, ca
September 13th, 2013Downtown, Mary, San Diego CountyMary Desjean 4 Comments

San Diego Restaurant Week is back again starting September 15th and I was lucky enough to get invited to Jsix for a little restaurant week preview.

Jsix is situated in Downtown San Diego just a couple of blocks from Petco Park. It is adjacent to Hotel Solamar and provides a fun and inviting dining experience. I loved the inside of the restaurant with the sprawl of flowers on the ceiling as well as the hanging lanterns. Jsix has a very inviting …

urban bar & grill / downtown san diego
September 4th, 2013Downtown, Mary, San Diego CountyMary Desjean 0 Comments

I was recently invited to check out Urban Bar & Grill in Downtown San Diego. They recently introduced a few new menu items as well as a new Bar Bites menu. Jake was my partner in crime once and again and we turned it into a little date night for the two of us!
We parked over at Horton Plaza since Urban Bar & Grill is just a block or two over in the Gaslamp. Even though Horton Plaza now only …
