viva las arepas + the $20 trick in las vegas
February 22nd, 2016Cheap Eats, Las Vegas, Mary, TravelMary 6 Comments

Last weekend Jake and I took a little trip to Las Vegas. We took Friday off so we could head up and enjoy a full weekend in Las Vegas. I tried the “$20 Trick” at our hotel, too! More on that later. First… Venezuelan food from a little spot called Viva las Arepas.

Viva las Arepas is located just north of the Stratsophere hotel (can you see it peeking through in the upper left corner?) in a little strip mall. It was about …

rough draft brewing company

Rough Draft is a brewing company that is very close to my office. I’d only been once before since I’m not much of a beer drinker but they recently started offering food. This meant I had to visit a couple of times to get a feel for their menu. All in the name of research!

Rough Draft is located off of a small street at the end of a cul-de-sac, surrounded by office buildings. They have outdoor seating and are a …

[revisit] the huddle

A couple of weekends ago Jake and I continued our breakfast pilgramage and revisited a spot we haven’t been to in awhile: The Huddle! The Huddle is an old school diner nestled into the heart of Mission Hills. A lot of change has happened on Goldfinch Street. Back in the day this is where Phil’s BBQ was located and a few of the restaurants have been swapped out for newer spots, like The Patio. The Huddle looks the same though …

sarlacc pit cake for my valentine

If you’re a regular reader of This Tasty Life than you should have already guessed that Jake would be getting something geeky for Valentine’s Day this year. I felt I had to stick with cake this year since last year’s Star Wars Trash Compactor cake was such a hit. This year I went with another Star Wars themed cake and created a Sarlacc Pit cake! I used a bundt cake as my base for creating the “pit”.
But first… I’m going to recap …

mardi gras + greystone steakhouse
February 10th, 2016Downtown, Mary, San Diego CountyMary 2 Comments

The real Mardi Gras is always Fat Tuesday (yesterday) but in the Gaslamp they celebrated Mardi Gras last Saturday! I got semi-dolled up for the night with Jake in tow. I already had some beads from my dinner at Blush Ice Bar, too. Little did I know how many beads we’d manage to get later. Our night out in the Gaslamp included a wonderful dinner at Greystone Steakhouse as well as partying at Mardi Gras.

We headed down to the Gaslamp …

mishmash

I’m always trying to look for new places and last weekend was no exception! After running around town doing some errands on Friday, Jake, T and I headed to a new spot over in the revamped Barrio Logan (did you know they got a gateway sign in 2014 – I didn’t until I saw it!). The place? A new joint called MishMash. Talking to our waitress, we found out they are still in the “soft opening” stage and have only …

lemon grove cafe

Last weekend we went out to breakfast on Saturday AND Sunday, my friends. How exciting! I really wanted to hit up the Crack Shack last Sunday but the rainy weather made me change my mind about that. Instead… two days of breakfast restaurants! On Sunday we stayed near Jake’s place and went to the Lemon Grove Cafe, which used to be the Antique Row Cafe. 

Jake had always wanted to go to the Antique Row Cafe but sadly missed his chance. …
