The 14th Annual Taste of Hillcrest is just around the corner!

Recently I was invited to come back into Firehouse Subs for a special dinner with the co-founder, Robin Sorensen, who entertained a group of us with stories, jokes, and more importantly some food!

Souplantation is one of the only buffets that I find acceptable to dine at. Everything tastes much fresher and there’s a good variety of items to get here. I was recently invited to dine here to check out a few of their newer menu items.

Oh my goodness. It’s December. Where did the year go?! I don’t think I’m prepared for this whole Christmas thing yet, especially not when it’s been in the 70’s lately. Ahh, the glamorous life of a San Diegan.
To celebrate December, and to celebrate the start of the Christmas season, I am in the gift giving mood with a $50 gift card to Daphne’s California Greek Cafe (thanks to Daphne’s and their generous ways). I was also able to pick a …
