mardi gras + greystone steakhouse
February 10th, 2016 Downtown, Mary, San Diego County Mary 2 Comments

The real Mardi Gras is always Fat Tuesday (yesterday) but in the Gaslamp they celebrated Mardi Gras last Saturday! I got semi-dolled up for the night with Jake in tow. I already had some beads from my dinner at Blush Ice Bar, too. Little did I know how many beads we’d manage to get later. Our night out in the Gaslamp included a wonderful dinner at Greystone Steakhouse as well as partying at Mardi Gras.

We headed down to the Gaslamp …

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 …

vindiego recap or whoa, i drank a lot of wine

A few weekends ago, Stacey and I went to the 3rd VinDiego Wine and Food Festival. VinDiego changed venues this year – moving from the Broadway Pier in Downtown over to Liberty Station. I was again invited this year but only got one media ticket. Stacey and I split the difference between a discounted ticket. Let’s see what shenanigans we got up to this time!

Jake dropped me off at the NTC Command Center where VinDiego was being held. Somehow I got …

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 …

december nights

Jake’s mom worked at December Nights this year so of course we wanted to go down and see what’s she’s been working on these past few months! She helped organize the vendors in certain areas of Balboa Park and we were able to check out the area she organized, grab some food, and walk around Balboa Park. She also managed to snag us a parking pass in one of the lots near the Aerospace Museum so we didn’t have to …

hotel thrillist

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, …

crave expo – los angeles
August 18th, 2014 etc, Los Angeles County, Mary Mary 4 Comments

I was recently invited to a new food expo happening up in Los Angeles a couple of weeks ago. It was a brand new expo called the Crave Expo helping to promote caterers in the Los Angeles area and it was a free event for media. I decided to bring Jake along and take a half day at work to trek it up to LA and check it out. Heather, who recently moved to LA, joined us for a fun …
