berkeley pizza / downtown san diego

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 …

bruxie / college area – san diego, ca

Bruxie recently opened in the College Area, offering up sandwiches that use waffles instead of bread. WHAT.

I had seen/heard of Bruxie before from other bloggers talking about the OC location and I briefly considering going to OC to try it… but yeah, that didn’t happen. Bruxie was originally supposed to open up at the Headquarters in Downtown but something happened and they pulled out… and are now open and running in the College Area. In fact, they are right next …

flayvors of cook farm / hadley, ma

After my grandfather’s funeral and a large buffet dinner with the family, my mom and I left with my aunts (my mom’s sisters) to head to Southhampton, MA (which is on the western side of MA) while my dad stayed with his family for another night. The next day my cousins took me out for a little afternoon joyride and took me to see cows (!!) and get ice cream. YES.

rita’s italian ice & iwok chinese restaurant / bonita – san diego, ca

Last month Jake and I had A and S for the afternoon and we took them to see the new Transformers movie. In case you’re wondering, no, you really don’t need to go see the new Transformers movie. If you really feel you must watch it (and haven’t already) … seriously, wait for it to come out on DVD so you don’t feel too ripped off. We go to the Regal Rancho Del Rey theater in Chula Vista where movie …

big bite bacon fest – 2014 recap

On the second to last day of the fair, Jake and I attended the dinner session of the Big Bite Bacon Fest thanks to Big Bite Events. Since I already been to the fair, we got there about an hour before the event and wandered around a little bit before the VIP admission began at 5:30PM. Jake didn’t have anything in particular he wanted to see so we didn’t spend the whole day there.

VIP admission nets you an extra hour …

july 4th bbq recap

I was not feeling too great on Thursday! I caught a little bit of a summer cold. Colds in the summer time seem worse to me than colds in the winter. It’s like you’re expected to have a cold in the winter time, but in the summer? It’s all sunshine and warmth and happiness – how on earth did you get a cold?! Well, I’m not sure, but at least it’s only a “tiny” cold. I’m not bedridden or anything. …

“Scoring” tickets! See what I did there? I’m sure you did and I’m also sure you’re groaning at me right now but it’s okay. Let me tell you about this new site I was invited to try out called ScoreBig. ScoreBig is sort of like the Priceline of ticket sales for sports games, concerts, and Broadway shows. You check out what events they have, select where you want to sit and offer a bid on the tickets.
When you go to …

burrito eating at sarita’s taco shop / spring valley, ca

Recently Jake and I saw this Thrillist article talking about the best California burritos in San Diego. In case you don’t know, a California burrito is basically a carne asada burrito with potatoes added – usually in the form of french fries. Jake and I haven’t been to many of the “best” burritos on this list and he wanted to check out Sarita’s Taco Shop in particular. It’s not too far from his house and we recently made a little …
