September 30th, 2015 Mary, Mira Mesa, San Diego County mary 6 Comments

Mira Mesa got a new restaurant last month! It’s over in the shopping center with the Fresh & Easy and the food court. It replaces the vacant bagel shop that shuttered earlier this year. The new place? Urbane Cafe.

Urbane Cafe is a chain restaurant that started out in Ventura, CA and has expanded to more cities in California. There’s another location for Urbane Cafe in San Diego over in Linda Vista, just down the road from USD.

Urbane Cafe is a fast …

culture brewing co + newport pizza

Last month I actually went out for beer. I know, right? That’s weird! But it was to support my friend Frank’s (aka Stacey’s boyfriend) art show AND to support puppies (The Southern California German Shepherd Rescue) so I figured that was a good reason to go have beer. The event was over at Culture Brewing Co in Ocean Beach and they featured a bunch of Frank’s awesome art for the month. This particular art show all showcased sketches of places around …

draft republic

Draft Republic is a relatively new spot from the Cohn Restaurant Group that opened up in the La Jolla/UTC area. It’s not too far from my office and I’ve been here for a lunch a couple of times with my co-workers. It’s a really nice spot – there’s a big parking lot right next to the restaurant so you don’t have to stress about that (like you do if you go to UTC), it’s a big open layout in the …

When I discovered there was a new gastropub like place nearby I knew I had to go and scope it out.

Legacy Brewing Tap and Kitchen is …

werewolf american pub / downtown san diego
October 21st, 2014 Downtown, Mary, San Diego County mary 10 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 …

Did you know that there’s a Cheese Festival that takes place in San Diego County? CHEESE FEST! Dear god, how did I not ever know about this before?!
