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 …

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

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 …

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 …

One more recap and then I’m totally GOING ON VACATION. YESSSSSS. 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 …

college area taste 2014 recap
April 22nd, 2014 College, Mary, San Diego County mary 10 Comments

I meant to post this last week but the week kind of got away from me! Here’s my recap of the College Area Taste!
Jake and I left a little early so we could get there before the event started to pick up our tickets at will call. While getting our tickets, Lynn and Dennis of Oh-So Yummy arrived at the same time. She was the winner of my giveaway and the four of us ended up going around the whole …

taste of downtown 2013 event recap
October 14th, 2013 Downtown, Mary, San Diego County mary 8 Comments

I was invited to attend the Taste of Downtown by McFarlane Promos and I happily accepted. I meant to go the last two years (!!) but something came up both times and I wasn’t able to make it. Stacey was my cohort for the evening and we planned on tackling this event the simple way: just go down 5th and swing around to 6th until we hit 14 spots.
Why 14? Stacey insisted we should do one more than the last …

[event] big bite bacon fest recap
June 26th, 2013 etc, Mary mary 16 Comments

Warning: many, many photos ahead! Many including the holy grail of foods: BACON.
You’ve been warned.

Here’s a non-food photo to warm you up to the onslaught.
Jake and I got to the fair in the mid-afternoon, a little while before the Bacon Fest started. I had skipped lunch and was seriously thinking about getting something else from the fair to tide me over until the fest started. Luckily, I wisely decided to just wait. So… no fair foods this year!

We waited with …
