On the morning of my cousin’s wedding, we all went out for breakfast to a local diner called Cruisers Malt Shoppe. 

Cruisers Malt Shoppe is a cute little diner in a corner spot in downtown Gardner, MA. The outside has some cool murals on it!

And inside Cruisers Malt Shoppe there’s a lot of neat, old decor. There’s a heavy focus on Coca-Cola related products plus lots of old records and car stuff. 

It feels very much like a 1950’s Americana diner in …

It’s that time of year – San Diego Restaurant Week is here again! The day after we got back from Boston I was invited to check out Prepkitchen in Little Italy. It was a nice way to get back into the groove of being home again.

Prepkitchen is apart of the Whisknladle Hospitality group. The cool thing about going to Whisknladle or Prepkitchen for San Diego Restaurant Week is how they do it. They let you choose your own items for …

I am back from the East Coast! Boy, it’s great to be home and to NOT have to break out the GPS to get anywhere. I’m going to kick off the week with a Massachusetts post from the very first place we visited after landing in Boston – a pizza joint in my dad’s hometown of Fitchburg, MA. Don’t worry, there will also be San Diego posts this week as well!
After a snafu at the car rental place in Boston …

cheap hot dog dates at costco

Costco. The land of the cheap date.
Assuming your date likes hot dogs. Or pizza. And likes sitting near parking lots.
Actually, these days there are more options than just the normal $1.50 hot dog + drink special. You can step your game up a notch by splurging on a little bit more!

Partial menu.

Pizza. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve eaten Costco pizza at parties.

Maybe your date is hankering for a little cinnamon action. Hook them up with this oversized twisty …

It is Labor Day, my friends. I’m currently reaching out to you from the past since I’m totally on the East Coast right now! The magic of scheduled posts is truly fascinating, isn’t it?
In my absence, I leave you with a photo of Maya who hasn’t a labored a day in her little doggie life.

What a princess.
Happy Labor Day!

mama kat’s

One lovely and crazy hot Saturday morning, Jake, T and I were up in North County. We don’t really spend a whole heck of a lot of time in the northern parts of San Diego, but here we were. It was still breakfast hours though the time was creeping up and over noon and I figured it was high time to try out this spot called Mama Kat’s.

Mama Kat’s is over in a little strip mall not too far from …

manna bbq

I had a hankering for some Korean BBQ recently and decided it was finally time to go and check out Manna BBQ in Mira Mesa. Manna BBQ took over the old Pizza Hut restaurant in Mira Mesa, across the street from the Target. Pizza Hut moved into a smaller location in the adjacent lot so you don’t have to mourn their loss (heh heh).

We went to Manna BBQ on a Saturday evening and only had to wait a few minutes …
