taste of hillcrest 2015 recap

A few weekends ago I was invited to attend Taste of Hillcrest again and I happily obliged. This year I did not have a partner in crime though since Jake was coaching Little League. I asked a few friends to go but they couldn’t make it either and I ended up having to go alone. But that’s okay, I was able power through part of it and I ended up meeting with Lynn of oh-so yummy and Faye of Faye’s …

san diego burger week 2015 recap

San Diego Burger Week is amazing because 1) there are $5 burgers (like crazy, gourmet like burgers) all over town! For FIVE dollars! 2) Burger Week lasts LONGER than one week and 3) It’s fun to try a bunch of burgers and share them and 4) A lot of places have $10 deals to get your grubby paws on some fries and beer. Total score for San Diegans everywhere.
Here’s my recap of San Diego Burger Week. I didn’t visit quite …

The 3rd Annual VinDiego Wine and Food Festival is coming up this weekend! I attended the very first VinDiego festival when it was held back at the Broadway Pier netting some gorgeous sunset photos.

Preeeeeeeeeeeeety.
Since VinDiego is over in Liberty Station this year, expect less pretty sunset photos from me and more photos like these:

Veggie Pasta from the first VinDiego (yum yum)

I’m certain that someone, somewhere at this event will have cheese samples out. Wine + cheese is a magical pairing …

taste of hillcrest giveaway

The 15th Taste of Hillcrest is just around the corner, you guys! Taste of Hillcrest was the very first ever “taste” event I went to and it is by far one of the largest taste events in San Diego with over 40 restaurants participating. I’ve never been able to hit up all the spots in the 4 hour time limit, but it’s always fun to try. Check out the places we hit up at last year’s Taste of Hillcrest for an …

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 16 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 …
