pink’s hot dogs | valley center

This is my last Harrah’s Rincon post! It probably seems like I’m some kind of spokesman for them now but I’m not. I just wanted to see what it would be like to have all of our meals at Harrah’s. Not the best food offerings overall, but decent enough if you’re just staying for a little while.
After we had lunch at the buffet, we hung out in our room for awhile before heading downstairs to Harrah’s lazy river. Harrah’s is …

hiking at palomar mountain + the buffet at harrah’s rincon casino

During our mini staycation, we took off to Palomar Mountain for a fun (and tiring) nature hike. I wanted to revisit the Palomar Mountain School where I (and T) went for sixth grade camp. We also went to The Buffet at Harrah’s Rincon Casino for lunch! More on the buffet later. First up… breakfast!
Breakfast at Starbucks
If it’s after 6AM, there are only 2 options for breakfast at Harrah’s. If it’s before 6AM then Pink’s will be in the mix for …

the cafe at harrah’s rincon casino | valley center

Last week it was Spring Break for Jake and T. To “celebrate”,  my folks got us a free room at Harrah’s Rincon Casino and we had a staycation. The resort is far enough away to feel like you’re out of town, but still close enough to home. On our first night we decided to have dinner at The Cafe at Harrah’s Rincon – one of the sit down restaurants at the resort casino. 

Harrah’s is pretty kid-friendly as well, though the kids still are not allowed to …

seasons 52 | downtown san diego

Recently I was invited to a blogger dinner at Seasons 52 at The Headquarters in Downtown San Diego. It’s that cool spot right next to Seaport Village if you aren’t familiar with the Headquarters! Jake was my date that evening and we got down to Seasons 52 right on time.

There was a little mingling session with the other bloggers and we were served these lovely little basil infused drinks. It’s strawberry-infused Reyka Small Batch Vodka with agave nectar, …

[revisit] carnitas uruapan | la mesa

I had a mini-vacation last week but I’m going to do the “easy” post first – a revisit to one of our usual haunts in La Mesa. It’s a little place called Carnitas Uruapan (which I fondly call “Uhuara” because I’m a geek and I always forget the “Uruapan” part of the name). Jake made the suggestion over the weekend and it was a fine suggestion. We were out running errands and this was a really nice stop for lunch.

We’ve …

parkhouse eatery | university heights

Oh boy, another brunch post! It’s what I like to do on the weekends. I can’t help it, man. I hadn’t thought about brunching but Lynn from oh-soyummy posted a little note about wanting to get weekend brunch and I suggested Parkhouse Eatery. Viola! Brunch plans were made! Here’s a little secret: if you suggest wanting to go get brunch, chances are I’ll grab the bait. 

One of the reasons I choose Parkhouse Eatery was for it’s dog friendly patio. 

Maya has been coming …

pizzanometry | mira mesa

Last Friday I checked out a brand spankin’ new spot that just opened in Mira Mesa called Pizzanometry. My co-workers and I were down for a little bit of pizza creating so off we went!

I just noticed Pizzanometry in the McDonald’s/Rite Aid shopping center last Monday. It’s right next to Siam Nara. It’s in the spot that used to be D&C Tofu House which closed in February. I was surprised to see a new spot had opened up since there’s no …
