double standard kitchenetta

Imagine it: Sunday afternoon. Downtown. Bright, sunny, few clouds here and there. Hot. Humid. Nice day to sit outside on the patio at a new-to-you restaurant. You’ve got your dog, your boys, and an afternoon of food ahead of you! Just ignore those deep dark clouds that keep rolling in for a moment. It won’t rain, right? 
Yeah, we’ll get to that.
Last weekend I was invited to try out Double Standard Kitchenetta – a relative new joint down in Gaslamp. Previously this spot was …

patron secret dining society in san diego

Last week it was Comic Con! And Patron decided it was high to come back to San Diego for another special event: the Patron Secret Dining Society! In my email I got a little hint that Patron was heading back here and I promptly answered their question and gained myself an invitation to the dinner and the dessert party. “DESSERT PARTY!” Goodness, can you imagine? You won’t have to – just see the bottom of this post!
The invitation for the …

anniversary dinner at toast enoteca & cucina

Jake and I recently celebrated our 8th anniversary! EIGHT. E-I-G-H-T. It is crazy how fast time flies by. When Jake and I started dating, his youngest son (S) was only four years old! And S will be 13 this year! Holy crazy cakes, Batman.
Jake and I have been through a lot of ups and downs but I feel like the last few years have been more ups overall which makes me quite happy. I wouldn’t change anything and everything …

padres fan fest 2015 + lolitas

This weekend over at Petco Park they started gearing up for the opening of the 2015 baseball season. The Padres held their annual Fan Fest and we attended so the kids (and Jake) could get a few autographs from the players.

It was a very early morning start on Saturday. We got the stadium about 7:45AM. We had one member ticket and were hoping they would let us in at the 8AM time slot but sadly that wasn’t the case. I …

december nights

Jake’s mom worked at December Nights this year so of course we wanted to go down and see what’s she’s been working on these past few months! She helped organize the vendors in certain areas of Balboa Park and we were able to check out the area she organized, grab some food, and walk around Balboa Park. She also managed to snag us a parking pass in one of the lots near the Aerospace Museum so we didn’t have to …

le parfait paris

I was recently invited to check out Le Parfait Paris, a recent addition to Downtown San Diego. This cafe is actually their second location, with their primary location in Mission Valley. They’ve got an awesome open air feel with this new spot. Tables are on the sidewalk for maximum people watching and to enjoy our usually beautiful weather. Very European!

Jake, T and I visited on a recent Saturday morning and managed to park right in front of the cafe! This …

werewolf american pub / downtown san diego
October 21st, 2014Downtown, Mary, San Diego Countymary 10 Comments

Jake’s birthday is approximately 20 days before mine. We don’t always celebrate on his actual birthday though since S’s birthday is on the 2nd and he doesn’t want to steal his thunder. Instead we celebrated after his actual day. I made the whole thing a “Surprise! Woohoo!” evening and didn’t tell him where we were going. Jake’s mom graciously dropped us off Downtown as I had arranged transport home through Blacklane. Our first stop: dinner at Werewolf American Pub.

I didn’t …
