seasons 52 | downtown san diego

Recently I was invited to a blogger dinner at Seasons 52 at The Headquarters in Downtown San Diego. It’s that cool spot right next to Seaport Village if you aren’t familiar with the Headquarters! Jake was my date that evening and we got down to Seasons 52 right on time.

There was a little mingling session with the other bloggers and we were served these lovely little basil infused drinks. It’s strawberry-infused Reyka Small Batch Vodka with agave nectar, …

Adventuring in Mexico Part 2: Rosarito and Ensenada
March 14th, 2016 Cheap Eats, Mary, Mexico, Travel Mary 10 Comments

After we went to Popotla and checked into the room, we hung out for a little while before venturing back out to check out Rosarito. We headed down towards the beach first.

The tide was pretty high so we decided to not walk on the beach. In the distance we could see a pier that jutted out into the ocean. 

And we saw a bunch of people riding horses on the beach. There was an area right before you got into the …

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 …

[revisit] jeong won korean bbq buffet
December 9th, 2015 Kearny Mesa, Mary, San Diego County Mary 4 Comments

A few weeks ago I had a serious hankering for some Korean BBQ. Jake and I talked about going someplace new but I’d been stuck on the idea of revisiting Jeong Won. Jeong Won is a little different from the other all-you-can-eat places since it’s a buffet. The buffet style allows you to choose exactly what you want to get. One just one piece of chicken to try it out? You can do that here! And I appreciate that flexibility …

wine dinner at the westin mission hills in palm springs
November 17th, 2015 Mary, Palm Springs, Riverside County Mary 2 Comments

Last month I was invited out to Palm Springs for an evening of wine and food at the Westin Mission Hills Golf Resort and Spa. It was mid-October when Jake and I headed out to Palm Springs for this little getaway – back when it was still quite hot out and not feeling like fall at all! Let’s take a little peek back at our stay and the wine dinner.

rhode island – day two
October 14th, 2015 Mary, Rhode Island, Travel Mary 4 Comments

More East Coast goodness! On our second day in Rhode Island, we roamed around to check out what Rhode Island had to offer. Let’s begin!

We wanted to start the day off with a hearty breakfast and headed to a place called the Modern Diner.
The look of the diner should seem familiar as the design was inspired by streamlined trains. Roland Stickney designed the diners to be the same shape as the trains back in 1939. This particular diner was built in 1940. …

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 …
