In La Jolla, locals refer to this month as "May Gray" because of the looming marine layer that hides the sun. However, when you focus on the vibrant food scene in San Diego, it's hard to feel gloomy! This month I enjoyed dining in restaurants I haven't yet visited while exploring new fun activities. With so many incredible food options and endless exciting activities in my backyard, it's hard to focus on gray skies! Below are the food & fun findings I delved into with vigor and joy, now you too can enjoy these vetted recommendations. The Whaling Bar (La Jolla) In 1949 The Whaling Bar eme ..read more

2 Nights Valle de Guadalupe, Mexico

We've visited various areas of Mexico over the years, and probably have traveled to this favorite country of ours at least one dozen times. This is the first time that we took advantage of our proximity to Baja, Mexico, and decided to embark on an adventure to Valle de Guadalupe, just over a two-hour drive from San Diego. The landscape in Valle de Guadalupe is like none we have seen in the many Mexican coastal towns we have vacationed in. Instead, Valle is a stunning contrast to the blue waters we are used to, boasting endless views of bright green vineyards that are surrounded by rolling hill ..read more

My endless pursuit of great food in San Diego comes with several rewards: discovering new restaurants that I love, gathering with friends over delicious food that we experience together for the first time, sharing my favorite findings with my awesome readers, and giving my high heels purpose beyond collecting dust in my closet. I'm not sure when my love affair with food began but if I had to guess it would be in my grandmother's kitchen. Grandma always filled her pots with delicious homemade concoctions and her home always smelled safe and inviting. Since my early twenties, I began dabbling wi ..read more

How to Coachella in Your 40's

Let's face it, once we hit our forties we've grown out of our willingness to be uncomfortable. We're more fixed in our ways and often have higher standards than we did in our twenties. Coachella, an annual music festival held in the middle of the Coachella Valley is a bucket-list-worthy experience, yet with scorching afternoon temperatures and evenings that drastically cool down, huge crowds, and an inhumane amount of walking required to get around, the desert music mecca tends to attract younger crowds who don't kvetch when removed from their comfort zones. Despite these obstacles, yes, even ..read more

5 Nights in Punta de Mita, Mexico

I love everything about Mexico - the culture, the food, the people. We've visited Tulum, Cancun, Mayakoba, Holobox, Isla Mujeres, Playa del Carmen, Cozumel, and Puerto Aventuras over the years. We can't get enough of the warm hospitality, alluring beaches, and wonderful cuisine the country offers. One of the perks of living in San Diego is its proximity to the many coastal towns of Mexico. On this memorable trip, we took a two-and-a-half-hour flight from San Diego on Alaska Airlines to Puerto Vallarta. We then picked up our car rental from Enterprise and then made the easy fort ..read more

March Food & Fun

March has dragged by at a torturous pace, the days stalled while each weekend felt a world away. This slow pace was mainly due to our son's college decisions finally coming in after months of awaiting his fate. We all know the cliche that time flies - I'd like to add that it does, except in March. One of my favorite ways to pass the time during a slowly moving month is by dining with good friends who entrust me to choose our dining destination. It's such a reward for me to introduce our friends to a fabulous spot they may not have enjoyed otherwise. March may have lagged, testing my patience f ..read more

3 Nights in Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA

Our first visit to Carmel was in November of 2020. I instantly fell in love with this charming town packed with some of the best restaurants, the cutest downtown architecture and collection of shops, and incredible proximity to the sea and other coastal towns like Seaside and Monterey. Carmel was one of the three California cities we considered moving to when we left the East Coast (along with Laguna and La Jolla). It's upscale yet laid back and has access to breathtaking vistas along the California coast, including Big Sur, just forty-five minutes away. What I especially love about this coast ..read more

One of the goals I set for myself in 2024 is to delve into new experiences in addition to discovering restaurants worthy of a recommendation. I like this resolution as it pushes me to look deeper into life in San Diego and encourages me to take advantage of this city's many opportunities. Moving forward, I will continue to highlight five great restaurants with the bonus of a fun experience, or two, to inspire my readers to get out, eat at a fantastic restaurant you haven't dined in yet, and have some fun in new places.

The Black Stallion, our loyal SUV, led us from San Diego to ,,Las Vegas to ,,Park City, and ultimately steered us to ,Jackson, one of my favorite cities in the ,USA. Jackson is an ideal year-round destination, one you'll especially love in the winter when the mountains are draped in snow under a vast blue sky. Winter here is spectacular. The air is crisp, the sun shines bright, and the endless surrounding beauty is mesmerizing. Many others share my adoration for this ski town - it is quickly becoming one of the ,,most expensive cities in the country. The food scene is unreal, there are loads o ..read more
