dirty birds / pacific beach
September 4th, 2014 Mary, Pacific Beach, San Diego County Mary Desjean 8 Comments

I’m forever on a quest to find awesome chicken wings. I’ve read before that Dirty Birds has topped a few lists. Jinxi did a post about Dirty Birds recently that got me thinkin’ it was about time I check it out. Jake plays softball down in Pacific Beach on Sundays and my friend Laura joined us for some post-softball grub. 

In case you didn’t know, this is definitely a sports bar. Just a few things give it away… 

TVs line the whole …

zpizza party + a giveaway
August 25th, 2014 Mary, Multiple Locations, San Diego County Mary Desjean 8 Comments

zpizza recently invited me to have a pizza party in my own house (or in this case, Jake’s house) and I gladly accepted. (A night of no dishes, woo!) zpizza wanted to showcase a few new pizzas from their tasting kitchen. These are all experimental pizzas that might be making it onto their menu soon.

triple lobsters at fishtales in hatfield, ma
July 29th, 2014 Mary, Massachusetts, Road Trips Mary Desjean 11 Comments

I only have a couple of Massachusetts posts left! This is one of them. For our last proper dinner in Massachusetts, on Father’s Day, my Uncle Bob wanted to take us to this place for triple lobsters. Triple lobsters for $19.99. YES. You read that correctly. Look, I have proof!

See, I wouldn’t lie to you.

Also we were in Hatfield! No, it’s no reference to the famous Hatfields and McCoy’s though honestly I thought there might be some connection until I …

wings and fish / encanto
July 23rd, 2014 Cheap Eats, Encanto, Mary, San Diego County Mary Desjean 7 Comments

Last Friday Jake and I were running some errands in the evening when I started thinking about dinner. And yet again, I was having a craving for chicken wings. We hadn’t found our “go to” spot yet and I was scoping out Yelp for ideas on places we hadn’t tried yet. We had T with us so we couldn’t do a bar (like Duck Dive) and somehow I stumbled on this place in Encanto (my old hood) called Wings and …

southpaw social club / downtown – san diego, ca
June 9th, 2014 Downtown, Mary, San Diego County Mary Desjean 14 Comments

I waited until the very last day to use my LivingSocial deal for Southpaw Social Club. Like the LAST DAY. LivingSocial put it into the “expired” section of the app and I freaked out a little but then I realized they probably don’t expire it by time so I knew the sucker was still good. Jake came with me as my cohort for this trip (not a surprise, I’m sure) and we enjoyed a nice evening out. Lucky for us …

la teresita cafeteria / tampa, fl
May 7th, 2014 Florida, Mary, Road Trips Mary Desjean 4 Comments

On our first morning in Tampa, Chris took us to La Teresita, a Cuban restaurant in Tampa. We went to the cafeteria portion (which is open 24 hours a day Thursday – Saturday) where there are U shaped tables and bar stools for sitting.

You can kind of see how it’s set up in this photo (but only a little bit). We’re sitting at the corner with Jake in the middle of us at the curved part of the U shape. …

[recipe] avocado orange and tomato salad
April 28th, 2014 Mary, Recipes Mary Desjean 4 Comments

Recently I was eating lunch at home with Maya and watching Ina Garten do her thing in the Hamptons. On this particular episode she was making an Avocado and Grapefruit salad which immediately piqued my interest. Avocado and fruit and a vinaigrette, that’s it?! Laura was coming over to join me for dinner that night and I thought a little twist on that idea would be a perfect starter for us that evening.
I don’t particularly like grapefruit though so instead …

isa.bella artisan pizzeria / clairemont – san diego, ca
April 24th, 2014 Clairemont, Mary, San Diego County Mary Desjean 13 Comments

I couldn’t decide where we should go for our anniversary. With our upcoming trip to Florida (we leave Sunday!!!), we’ve been trying to cut back a little on eating out to save money for the trip. I suggested that I should make dinner to which Jake replied, “You always make dinner. Why don’t I make it?” A day or so later he suggested we check out Isa.bella Pizzeria since a) I mentioned there was a LivingSocial deal for it, b) …
