sin city burger at smashburger + giveaway

Hello to you on this fine Friday morning! Let’s talk a little bit about Smashburger. Cause I ate there recently. This is a foodie blog after all. We talk about food around here!

Jake and I hit up Smashburger after they graciously gave me some coupons to check out a couple of burgers. When we were ordering the sign above totally caught my eye. Mmm, chocolate peanut butter shakes! I haven’t had one in awhile (these babies have already existed at …

the money pit drive thru

Jake and I were up in the Northland (aka North County) for a little errand. The little errand took much longer than we though it would and it was quite late by the time we got around to eating dinner. I did some Yelpy research and found a place called The Money Put Drive Thru and decided to go there because the name sounded rad. Yes, that’s sometimes how I decide on where to eat: if it’s got a cool …

bushfire kitchen / carlsbad, ca

Up in Carlsbad, there’s a cool new restaurant called Bushfire Kitchen that’s serving up cafeteria-ish style food. It’s a similar concept to Tender Greens or new the Lemonade that’s opened up recently in San Diego (post forthcoming) – except you order your food and they deliver it to your table. Recently I was invited to come in and check out Bushfire Kitchen for myself.

Bushfire Kitchen is in the southern part of Carlsbad, around La Costa. It’s inside a shopping plaza, …

hodad’s + birthdays

T turned 17 last week. Jake and I remarked profusely about how time passes so quickly. I feel like summer just started and now we’re nearing the final days of summer instead. T will be starting his junior year of high school in a couple of weeks and I’m amazed at how much he’s grown over the years. For his birthday, we went to Hodad’s in Downtown San Diego with Jake’s mom, T, Jake and I all in tow. I …

bagatelle cafe & bistro

Bagatelle Cafe & Bistro is one of the newer restaurants to open up recently in the Miramar area. I love it when new places open up around my office – it gives me new foods to try! Bagatelle Cafe is in the same strip mall as SuperNatural Sandwiches and they serve French-American food for breakfast and lunch. I’ve been a few times and feel I can now properly assess them.

jamms restaurant / las vegas
August 17th, 2015 Las Vegas, Mary, Travel mary 2 Comments

We played around with some ideas for breakfast the next day in Vegas. Should we do a buffet? Should we go on the cheap? In the end I decided to try another off-strip restaurant called Jamms Restaurant. 

Jamms Restaurant is way, way off the Strip in a strip mall. No oversized casinos and flashy lights here, folks. When you get away from the Strip, Las Vegas starts to look like a “normal” city!
The item that really caught my eye while browsing …

ellis island casino / las vegas
August 14th, 2015 Cheap Eats, Las Vegas, Mary, Travel mary 8 Comments

Ahhh, Las Vegas. It’s pretty much a rite of passage for all young adults in Southern California to make a pilgrimage to this unholy land of neon lights, cheap alcoholic drinks, gambling, and staying up all night until you pass out and wake up in a hotel room with at least five other people. You do this at least once a year (maybe more) until you get a little older and the allure of Vegas starts to get a little …
