September 30th, 2015Mary, Mira Mesa, San Diego Countymary 6 Comments

Mira Mesa got a new restaurant last month! It’s over in the shopping center with the Fresh & Easy and the food court. It replaces the vacant bagel shop that shuttered earlier this year. The new place? Urbane Cafe.

Urbane Cafe is a chain restaurant that started out in Ventura, CA and has expanded to more cities in California. There’s another location for Urbane Cafe in San Diego over in Linda Vista, just down the road from USD.

Urbane Cafe is a fast …

san diego restaurant week recap

In addition to my preview of San Diego Restaurant Week at Prepkitchen, I managed to visit three more spots to take advantage of Restaurant Week deals last week. Let’s recap!

Ice cream, a lake, seafood, and a wedding – not bad for our full first day in Massachusetts!
After breakfast at Cruisers Malt Shoppe, we dropped off my aunt and cousin back at the hotel and we went for a little drive around my dad’s hometown of Fitchburg, MA. Well, actually, first we went to Target because I realized it was chilly at night and doofus me didn’t bother to pack a sweater. New Goal: buy a sweater at Target. (Goal …

Last month on a nice, bright sunny afternoon, Jake, T and I went Downtown. Normally I avoid Downtown like the plague but I’ve found that daytime trips to Downtown really aren’t that bad. We were heading to a Padres vs Cardinals game that evening and scored excellent parking right across the street from Petco Park. Since we were there about four hours before the game, parking was HELLA CHEAP. We paid $8 TOTAL and netted ourselves a $1/hr parking fee. SCORE. …

the money pit drive thru

Jake and I were up in the Northland (aka North County) for a little errand. The little errand took much longer than we though it would and it was quite late by the time we got around to eating dinner. I did some Yelpy research and found a place called The Money Put Drive Thru and decided to go there because the name sounded rad. Yes, that’s sometimes how I decide on where to eat: if it’s got a cool …

cruisers malt shoppe / gardner, ma
September 18th, 2015Mary, Massachusetts, Travelmary 2 Comments

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 …
