mr. peabody’s bar & grill / encinitas, ca
April 14th, 2014Encinitas, Mary, San Diego CountyMary Desjean 8 Comments

Mr. Peabody’s is a cool little dive bar/grill in Encinitas, CA that I was invited to check out last week. It’s tuckered into a strip mall right off the freeway at Encinitas Blvd. It’s kind of hard to spot since the sign doesn’t really stand out and it’s way back in the lot, but it’s worth a visit to this semi-hidden spot!

They got some sweet happy hour deals as well as Daily Specials plus live entertainment nearly every evening. You …

revisit to callahan’s / mira mesa – san diego, ca
February 25th, 2014Mary, Mira Mesa, San Diego CountyMary Desjean 8 Comments

It’s been quite awhile since I last posted about Callahan’s… like, five years actually! The place looks the same once you step inside but now they have a fancier looking menu – one sheet instead of the book they used to have, but with many of the same offerings as before. I visited here last Friday with my friend Laura. We needed a little grub before we could sit down to watch some Downton Abbey! Since I only watch it …

After Jake’s last softball game of the season last Wednesday (which lasts 8 games), we joined his team over at Tiger!Tiger! in North Park for a little post game drinking and eating. Well, I drank an Arnold Palmer and Jake had a Virgil’s Root Beer (which they have on TAP). We didn’t feel like partaking of the alcoholic beverages that evening.

late night happy hour at the riviera supper club / la mesa – san diego, ca
January 30th, 2014Cheap Eats, La Mesa, Mary, San Diego CountyMary Desjean 8 Comments

This time around after another one of Jake’s later night games, we headed out to the Riviera Supper Club in La Mesa for another late night happy hour.

It was Wednesday night – around 9:30PM and there was a live band playing near the front entrance. I felt like a hip adult out for a drink on a weeknight…

… even thought all I had was a Diet Coke. There were no booths in the bar area at first, so we saddled …

late night happy hour at the lazy dog restaurant / mission valley – san diego, ca

The last few softball games Jake has had have been later in the evening – at 8:30PM. This gave us a chance to check out some late night happy hours I’d been curious about.

The first one we went to was at the Lazy Dog Restaurant. They have regular happy hour Monday-Friday from 3 to 6PM. Sunday through Thursday they do a second happy hour from 9PM until close. The menu is the same for both times. Anything with an asterisk …

holly jolly mocktails at the pony room/ rancho santa fe – san diego, ca
December 27th, 2013Mary, Rancho Santa Fe, San Diego CountyMary Desjean 2 Comments

If you’re looking for an alternative way to celebrate the coming of the New Year, something a little more on the sober side, you might want to check out some of the holiday “Mocktails” that a few restaurants have got on tap this season.
 
There are three participants in North Coastal Prevention Coalition’s 2nd annual Holly Jolly Mocktails helping to spread some sober, festive cheer this season.
1) “Holiday Peppermint Patty” – Casa De Bandini: A chocolate and peppermint concoction which makes me …

san diego cellars / little italy – san diego, ca
December 24th, 2013Little Italy, Mary, San Diego CountyMary Desjean 0 Comments

Last month I was invited to go and check out San Diego Cellars, a new winery/wine bar that’s located on the north side of Little Italy, just a little ways from the main drag. San Diego Cellars will be in the perfect spot as Little Italy and the surrounding area expands a bit. For now, it’s on the quieter side of Little Italy, or as I call it, the side with easier parking!

As I am primarily a food blogger for …

rocky’s crown pub / pacific beach – san diego, ca
December 17th, 2013Cheap Eats, Mary, Pacific Beach, San Diego CountyMary Desjean 10 Comments

I’ve been wanting to take Jake here for a long ass time and a few weeks ago I was finally able to take him! We tried to go a few times this week, mistakenly making the attempt on the weekend or during prime sports game viewing periods. These are NOT the ideal times to go since Rocky’s is not a big place. We ended up going one Wednesday evening after Jake’s first league softball game (his team’s name? Ball Busters. …

about this site

My name is Mary and I live in San Diego. I've been blogging since 2006 as a hobby - it's my fun, creative outlet! Some random things about me: I'm a front end web developer, I love peanut butter, cookies, warm cupcakes, puppy noses, star gazing, new bags of sugar, sprinkles, cupcake wrappers, egg rolls, eating french fries with ice cream, driving with the windows down, snuggling, wes anderson movies, staying up too late reading a good book and Jake. These are my adventures in all things food. Hope you enjoy the ride.
