hotel thrillist
September 29th, 2014 etc, Mary mary 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, …

california grapes demo with chef marcela valladolid
September 26th, 2014 etc, Mary, products mary 8 Comments

Last week I was invited to attend an event on behalf of the California Grapes Commission with spokesperson Chef Marcela Valladolid. We were there to learn more about grapes and how to add grapes into recipes. Apparently you can do more with grapes then just stuffing them in your mouth (or freezing them and putting them in your drinks)!

There was a big beautiful box with three styles of grapes: green, red and black. I honestly have never really purchased black …

patron secret dining society
August 27th, 2014 etc, Mary mary 14 Comments

Awhile ago I signed up for this site called Patron Social Club. I don’t remember why or how I had heard about it, but I read about “secret dining” events and I thought, “Well heck yeah, I’d want to go!” I promptly forgot about it after that. Fast forward to a few weeks ago when I got a newsletter that said you could email them for a spot to the upcoming San Diego event. I submitted my name and a …

big bite bacon fest – 2014 recap
July 14th, 2014 Del Mar, etc, Mary, San Diego County mary 10 Comments

On the second to last day of the fair, Jake and I attended the dinner session of the Big Bite Bacon Fest thanks to Big Bite Events. Since I already been to the fair, we got there about an hour before the event and wandered around a little bit before the VIP admission began at 5:30PM. Jake didn’t have anything in particular he wanted to see so we didn’t spend the whole day there.

VIP admission nets you an extra hour …

scoring tickets with scorebig.com
July 10th, 2014 etc, Mary mary 2 Comments

“Scoring” tickets! See what I did there? I’m sure you did and I’m also sure you’re groaning at me right now but it’s okay. Let me tell you about this new site I was invited to try out called ScoreBig. ScoreBig is sort of like the Priceline of ticket sales for sports games, concerts, and Broadway shows. You check out what events they have, select where you want to sit and offer a bid on the tickets.
When you go to …

lemon aid charity event
June 19th, 2014 Coronado, etc, Mary, San Diego County mary 0 Comments

I got a flyer this week about a Lemon “Aid” charity event put on by UR Charities  that’s happening this Saturday! It’s a local event over in Coronado where they will be doing a “Lemon Cookoff” – kind of like a chili cookoff, but with everything flavored with lemon!
If I had gotten the flyer earlier I might have even signed up to participate…
But I’ll go as a visitor instead! You buy tasting tickets and then your ticket acts as a …

I already mentioned this but I’ll be in Florida, visiting various parts I have never seen before and hopefully sampling a lot of key lime pie. I’ve got a few posts lined up for next week (or well, I’m working on it anyway) so you can still enjoy some random crap awesome things while I’m gone. I’ll be posting photos of my adventuring on Instagram if you want to …
