February 1st, 2016 Downtown, Mary, San Diego County mary 6 Comments

Last week I was invited to come and check out a little preview dinner at Blush Ice Bar for the special Gaslamp Quarter Mardi Gras Celebration that is happening THIS WEEKEND on February 6th, 2016. Quite frankly I’m in shock that it’s already February. 2016 is really zooming along!

In case you don’t know about the crazy Mardi Gras Celebration, here’s a little recap. There will be a huge block party in the Gaslamp spanning about 10 blocks with 5 live stages with …

baguette bros

Every other week I find myself down in the Convoy area and this week I decided to stop by a new restaurant for a little bit of lunch. I had heard about Baguette Bros from one of my co-workers and decided to go check it out. Baguette Bros is in one of the oh-so-slightly larger lots – the same lot that houses Jeong Won Korean BBQ Buffet.

They’ve got a big “Grand Opening” banner up over the shop so it’s easy …

havana grill
January 20th, 2016 Clairemont, Mary, San Diego County mary 2 Comments

On Saturday after running a few errands, it was time for Jake and I to have some “real lunch”! I picked Havana Grill since we were in the area and I had been curious about Havana Grill. I had seen it was finally open and wanted to check it out with Jake.

Havana Grill is in that little plaza off Clairemont Mesa Blvd. at the 805 when you start heading west. The smaller one that’s slighter harder to park in. Surely …

embargo grill

Last month (also last year! haha!) Laura and I went out for a little dinner to a spot I’d been meaning to check out for awhile: the Embargo Grill. It’s a Cuban place down in the Sports Arena area (just a couple doors down from the Cravory and in the same lot as the amusingly named taco shop “It’s a Taco Shop”). 

I remember this spot used to be a burger place called BGR the Burger Joint. Looking back at my …

January 4th, 2016 etc, Mary, Recipes mary 2 Comments

For New Year’s Eve this year I decided to change up the usual snacks that I did. But first… let’s look at a little bit of a quickie lunch that Jake and I had earlier in the day.

There’s a market over in La Mesa called the Vine Ripe Market. It’s an ethnic market with lots of Mediterranean items. Jake and I went here a few weeks ago and I remember they had a bunch of different meats. I was looking for …

d bar… for the last time
December 7th, 2015 Hillcrest, Mary, San Diego County mary 4 Comments

I’ve been to D Bar in Hillcrest many, many times. One of the first times we went was during our Bacon Crawl back in 2013. I’ve also gone for a few birthdays and just as a treat and I was very sad to learn that D Bar will be closing up shop on December 20th. Excuse me while I weep over a bowl of crue fries!
Jake, T and I went last night for one of our last dinners at D …

[revisit] stacked
November 30th, 2015 Mary, Mission Valley, San Diego County mary 4 Comments

A few weeks ago I was invited to come back in to Stacked, a restaurant we’ve visited in the past. 

Stacked is located in Fashion Valley and offers up a super customizable menu by letting you order everything yourself via their iPad ordering system. 

Naturally they have “regular” old boring menus in case fiddling with iPads aren’t your thing. You can see that menu right here.

But if it is your thing, you can browse through preselected menu items or make your own …
