bistro kaz
October 7th, 2015 Kearny Mesa, Mary, San Diego County mary 6 Comments

It’s been awhile since I’ve been to this spot – in fact, it’s been long enough that they’ve changed the name! Bistro Kaz used to be known as Ristorante Kaz. It’s in the same spot but they’ve got a nice big sign now instead of before… when they basically had no sign at all. 
I was getting together with Laura for dinner before I left on my trip to the east coast. She had just gotten back from her summer trip …

birthday pizza crawl for jake
October 5th, 2015 Cheap Eats, Mary, San Diego County mary 10 Comments

Jake’s #1 hands down favorite food is pizza. He once gave up pizza for lent as a personal challenge and it was a really, really tough time for him (it didn’t help that we went to a pizza restaurant to meet up with a friend and he was good and had a sandwich instead). Just like I say I have a “dessert” stomach, Jake says he has a “pizza” stomach. I wanted to do something special just for him and …

September 23rd, 2015 Downtown, Mary, San Diego County mary 10 Comments

Last month on a nice, bright sunny afternoon, Jake, T and I went Downtown. Normally I avoid Downtown like the plague but I’ve found that daytime trips to Downtown really aren’t that bad. We were heading to a Padres vs Cardinals game that evening and scored excellent parking right across the street from Petco Park. Since we were there about four hours before the game, parking was HELLA CHEAP. We paid $8 TOTAL and netted ourselves a $1/hr parking fee. SCORE. …

espresso pizza / fitchburg, ma

I am back from the East Coast! Boy, it’s great to be home and to NOT have to break out the GPS to get anywhere. I’m going to kick off the week with a Massachusetts post from the very first place we visited after landing in Boston – a pizza joint in my dad’s hometown of Fitchburg, MA. Don’t worry, there will also be San Diego posts this week as well!
After a snafu at the car rental place in Boston …

bencotto + a failed dessert outing

I’ve been to Monello a couple of times but hadn’t yet tried the other restaurant, Bencotto, which is right next door. Bencotto is like the older brother restaurant. It’s a little more “fine dining” than Monello. Last Saturday Jake and I decided to sell our Padres tickets for that evening since it was just TOO HOT to go and sit in the sun for several hours. Dinner in Little Italy sounded like a way better idea. We also went early like old folks so …

double standard kitchenetta
July 24th, 2015 Downtown, Mary, San Diego County mary 6 Comments

Imagine it: Sunday afternoon. Downtown. Bright, sunny, few clouds here and there. Hot. Humid. Nice day to sit outside on the patio at a new-to-you restaurant. You’ve got your dog, your boys, and an afternoon of food ahead of you! Just ignore those deep dark clouds that keep rolling in for a moment. It won’t rain, right? 
Yeah, we’ll get to that.
Last weekend I was invited to try out Double Standard Kitchenetta – a relative new joint down in Gaslamp. Previously this spot was …

July 22nd, 2015 Del Mar, Mary, San Diego County mary 10 Comments

One recent evening, Laura and I went out for a girl’s night while Jake was off working at Comic Con. We made an evening of by going to the AMC Theater in La Jolla to sit in those fancy red recliners. I didn’t know it, but they have a 21+ area in the theater now where you can get your booze on while watching Magic Mike XXL or Ant-Man or something. We didn’t partake, though. I was too afraid to …
