pioneertown + the stagecoach inn
July 3rd, 2015Mary, The Desert, Travelmary 0 Comments

Before I forget and get TOO lazy, let me wrap up my desert trip from May! (PS – Can you believe it’s JULY now?!)

On the last day of our trip (which was on Memorial Day itself), we headed up to Pioneertown which is not too far away from Yucca Valley. There’s a road that leads up to Pioneertown. The town is located just up over the hills in the distance of Yucca Valley. It takes about 10 minutes to drive …

pho hung cali

We were down in Chula Vista on Father’s Day to drop off the kiddos after going to see Jurassic World at Horton Plaza. Have you been to Horton Plaza lately? It feels a little like a ghost town these days and the movie theater is totally old school – no digital signs, no TV’s showing you ads while you stand in line for popcorn, and more importantly there’s no one else there. You pretty much get the place to yourself. …

bbq’s, oak by absolut, and summer dinners on the grill

IT IS SUMMER! Just in case you had no idea. Tourists visiting San Diego the last few days might have been thinking, “What in the world? Why is it cloudy?” but us year-rounders know all about the “June Gloom”. I’m just not used to this weird new addition of “June Humidity”. It feels like nature is confused and thinks we’re on the East Coast or something.
But I digress… it is summer! And that means it’s time to cook everything OUTSIDE just …

summer tasting menu at vessel restaurant

Earlier this month I was invited to another media event for the Vessel Restaurant over at the Kona Kai resort hotel in Shelter Island. Jake finally got to be my date this time around! Vessel Restaurant was featuring dishes from their new summer menu and each course was paired with a local craft beer.

Hence everyone had tons of beers surrounding their place setting at the table.

I don’t usually drink this much and honestly I’m not a huge beer fan (sad, …

nomad donuts

I think you know by now that I’m kind of a donut fiend. I’ve been to many donuts shops around town and even make it a point to visit donut shops in other towns. I’m slightly wary about the “gourmet” donuts that have popped up in San Diego (for the record, I’m not a Donut Bar fan – sorry) so maybe I was a bit reluctant to try some of the newer places. I finally stopped into Nomad Donuts over …

culture brewing co + newport pizza

Last month I actually went out for beer. I know, right? That’s weird! But it was to support my friend Frank’s (aka Stacey’s boyfriend) art show AND to support puppies (The Southern California German Shepherd Rescue) so I figured that was a good reason to go have beer. The event was over at Culture Brewing Co in Ocean Beach and they featured a bunch of Frank’s awesome art for the month. This particular art show all showcased sketches of places around …

bourre southern bistro

Last night Jake and I went out for a “just the two of us” dinner. Jake wanted to stay closeby, thwarting my original idea, but I picked something nearby that I had bookmarked on Yelp. It was a Southern style bistro serving creole food and the item that caught my eye on the menu was “blueberry cornbread”. Certain items catch my eye and make me want to try them immediately and that was the item for me! Off we went …
