hiking at palomar mountain + the buffet at harrah’s rincon casino

During our mini staycation, we took off to Palomar Mountain for a fun (and tiring) nature hike. I wanted to revisit the Palomar Mountain School where I (and T) went for sixth grade camp. We also went to The Buffet at Harrah’s Rincon Casino for lunch! More on the buffet later. First up… breakfast!
Breakfast at Starbucks
If it’s after 6AM, there are only 2 options for breakfast at Harrah’s. If it’s before 6AM then Pink’s will be in the mix for …

pizzanometry | mira mesa

Last Friday I checked out a brand spankin’ new spot that just opened in Mira Mesa called Pizzanometry. My co-workers and I were down for a little bit of pizza creating so off we went!

I just noticed Pizzanometry in the McDonald’s/Rite Aid shopping center last Monday. It’s right next to Siam Nara. It’s in the spot that used to be D&C Tofu House which closed in February. I was surprised to see a new spot had opened up since there’s no …

pernicano’s

Pasta! There are not a ton of Italian restaurants up in the Mira Mesa area and one evening when Laura came over to hang out with me (so we could watch some Downton Abbey together) she was in the mood for pasta. Pernicano’s came to mind after considering the other nearby options. Pernicano’s is new to the area, though there are other locations in town. It’s located just off Mercy Road, across from the KFC and in the same lot …

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
September 14th, 2015 Mary, Massachusetts, Travel Mary 2 Comments

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 …
