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
July 11th, 2014etc, Marymary 12 Comments

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 …

ss lobster ltd / fitchburg, ma

One place that I love, love, love in Fitchburg, MA is this seafood place called SS Lobster Ltd. My grandparents would take me here when I visited from Boston. Memere (my grandmother) would always get the fried scallops while I usually wanted the fried clams. This place has good memories for me and my Mom wanted us to go here for dinner on a first night in Massachusetts. Like my Dad and I were going to say no to this …

richard walker’s pancake house / la jolla – san diego, ca

Richard Walker’s Pancake House has recently expanded in San Diego. The original location is in Downtown and a new spot just opened up in Downtown La Jolla. I was recently invited to come in and check out the new location and try out some of their tasty breakfast items. 

Jake and I don’t dine too often in La Jolla since parking can be a pain and it’s usually crowded around here. We managed to snag parking in our go-to parking area …

chris’ ono grinds island grill / mission valley – san diego, ca

Jake, T and I came here shortly after I got back from Boston. I got an Entertainment Book a couple of months ago for only $5 (on tax day!) so I figured it’s about time we start using the sucker for deals! Chris’ Ono Grinds Island Grill was one of the places – but only for the location in Mission Valley (they also have a location in North Park). 

They have a couple of seats outside. One is a glass table …
