seasons 52 at the headquarters / downtown san diego

Here’s my final Restaurant Week post! I’m a slacker. I had a $25 dining card that was given to me on my last visit to the Headquarters in December. It was a crazy fun blogger thing that gave us all...

harry’s coffee shop / la jolla, ca

Nestled in downtown La Jolla, Harry’s Coffee Shop is an established landmark that’s been serving up breakfast and lunch since 1960.  Now run by the family’s second generation, the restaurant is a throwback to traditional east coast diners with a long counter, vinyl booths, Norman Rockwell prints and vintage sports memorabilia lining the walls.  It’s warm, comfortable and familiar.

[giveaway] daphne’s $50 gift card (just because)

Oh my goodness. It’s December. Where did the year go?! I don’t think I’m prepared for this whole Christmas thing yet, especially not when it’s been in the 70’s lately. Ahh, the glamorous life of a San Diegan. To celebrate...
