[revisit] stacked
November 30th, 2015 Mary, Mission Valley, San Diego County mary 2 Comments

A few weeks ago I was invited to come back in to Stacked, a restaurant we’ve visited in the past. 

Stacked is located in Fashion Valley and offers up a super customizable menu by letting you order everything yourself via their iPad ordering system. 

Naturally they have “regular” old boring menus in case fiddling with iPads aren’t your thing. You can see that menu right here.

But if it is your thing, you can browse through preselected menu items or make your own …

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 …

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 …

davanti enoteca

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 …


PizzaRev is one of the latest “Make Your Own Pizza” places to pop up in San Diego. It’s similar to restaurants such as Project Pie, Blaze Pizza, Pieology Pizzeria, Pizza Studio, and Social Life Pizza. Basically, these places are the “Subway” of Pizza. I always find it interesting when one concept comes into town and sets up shop, there’s sure to be a bunch more to follow! I recently went to visit the Scripps Ranch location of PizzaRev after a …

culture brewing co + newport pizza

Last month I actually went out for beer. I know, right? That’s weird! But it was to support my friend Frank’s (aka Stacey’s boyfriend) art show AND to support puppies (The Southern California German Shepherd Rescue) so I figured that was a good reason to go have beer. The event was over at Culture Brewing Co in Ocean Beach and they featured a bunch of Frank’s awesome art for the month. This particular art show all showcased sketches of places around …

gino’s pizzeria featuring the philadelphia sandwich co.

Gino’s Pizzeria Featuring The Philadelphia Sandwich Co. (isn’t that a mouthful) is a new spot to the Miramar area, behind the Denny’s on Miramar Road. They put together Gino’s Pizza and added the Philadelphia Sandwich Co. into the shop. The Philadelphia Sandwich Co. used to be located off Convoy Street near the Original Pancake House. Gino’s took over a place called Dino’s that served pizza and Italian sandwiches. I visited Dino’s a few times and always thought the place needed …
