werewolf american pub / downtown san diego
October 21st, 2014 Downtown, Mary, San Diego County Mary Desjean 8 Comments

Jake’s birthday is approximately 20 days before mine. We don’t always celebrate on his actual birthday though since S’s birthday is on the 2nd and he doesn’t want to steal his thunder. Instead we celebrated after his actual day. I made the whole thing a “Surprise! Woohoo!” evening and didn’t tell him where we were going. Jake’s mom graciously dropped us off Downtown as I had arranged transport home through Blacklane. Our first stop: dinner at Werewolf American Pub.

I didn’t …

sea180 coastal tavern / imperial beach
October 7th, 2014 Imperial Beach, Mary, San Diego County Mary Desjean 12 Comments

Last week my oldest friend, Sarah, was back in town for a little visit. The amazing thing about old friends is that the moment you see each other, even if you haven’t seen nor talked to them in a year, you just pick up right where you left off. It’s immediately comfortable and familiar again like you haven’t been apart at all. The only thing is that later you miss them more! 
Sarah, her husband and kiddos were staying in Imperial Beach …

hotel thrillist
September 29th, 2014 etc, Mary Mary Desjean 14 Comments

Recently I was invited to check out Thrillist’s Hotel Thrillist takeover at the Hard Rock Hotel in Downtown San Diego. Thrillist swept into town with a weekend full of events on Friday and Saturday nights.

The first event was like a foodie fest up in the pool area and the Saturday events were a crazy sounding pool party (with full roast pig) and a clubbing party. I’m sure you can guess which of the events interested me the most!
That Friday evening, …

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 …
