Ahh, Friday in July. The weather is gorgeous. Are you looking forward to the weekend?
With sunshine like this, there’s no way you should consider kicking it off indoors.
Naturally, there are lots of outdoor cocktails to be had in San Diego but, I’d suggest reaching for the sky and heading for the roof.
Yes, you should beat a path to the newest downtown rooftop lounge…Siren at the Se San Diego.
I’ve heard that every weekday from 5-7 p.m. they serve up half-price specialty cocktails like the St. Germaine, prosecco and aloe juice Silver Leaf or the Studio Sutra with VeeV, blueberry and cucumber – regularly …
If you’re mid-century modern fan, The Mingei Museum in Balboa Park has an exhibit for you this summer. Masters of the Mid-Century California Modern covers the careers of Evelyn and Jerome Ackerman, designers whose home accessories, furniture and architectural elements were at the forefront of the now iconic design movement.
In celebration of the exhibit, the museum is hosting Hollywood Modern: Modernist Set Design in Mid-Century Cinema, a film series with screenings on three consecutive Thursdays in July.
The three films they’ve selected all feature amazing mid-century modern design and hilarious hi-jinks: the romantic comedy Pillow Talk, the …
Did you know we’ve got an online radio show?
Yep, each Friday, local expert and veteran reporter Darlynne Reyes-Menkin hits the airwaves (webwaves? netwaves?) with Travel Like A Local - a half-hour travel show chock full of fun insider tips on what’s happening around town.
Last week, she interviewed guests who spoke about all the summer activities at Loews Coronado Bay Resort - ranging from Modern Mixology classes to guided herb garden tours – and the free outdoor summer movies presented by San Diego County Parks & Recreation.
Organic cocktails and outdoor movies? Sounds like a perfect summer afternoon to me!…
I’m having a Calgon moment and a bubble bath won’t cut it. I need something stronger.
What’s a girl to do when only a technicolor cocktail with an umbrella will suffice?
Follow the lead of generations of Californians and embrace Tiki culture, of course. That way, I can take an exotic getaway - just for a happy hour (or two) – and I don’t even have to leave the Gaslamp Quarter much less blow 1000 bucks on airfare to Tahiti.
So, I’m heading to Mister Tiki’s Mai Tai Lounge for their $5 on Fifth happy hour specials.
Just five smackers will buy me my …
Maybe you’re a hard-core hop head who wants the insider scoop on cult favorites. Maybe you’re a newbie looking to broaden your beer horizons. Maybe you just want to relax and enjoy without worrying about driving.
Recently, I spent an afternoon with the later touring a few breweries around town. BrewHop is great because they …
So what does an attractive, single, 30-something professional do on a Friday night in San Diego? Well I don’t know about guys like that, but here’s what I did…
I had the distinct pleasure of patronizing Stingaree for the evening last Friday, and all I can say is that my friends and I will be remembering that night for a while to come. No, it was not a Hangover reminiscient night of debauchery that I couldn’t remember the next day. Rather, it was an opportunity to enjoy a delicious dinner with friends, a few dances on the dance floor, and to relax …
Last Sunday, I went to an amazing foodie event in La Jolla at The Grande Colonial. The tasting soiree was called Meat! - and the exclamation point turned out to be more than just fancy punctuation.
There was lots of meat, naturally, but the excitement was all because the party was thrown by the Cooks Confab chefs.
This group of friends just happen to be chefs at some of the most buzzed about restaurants around town and they regularly get together to cook on a theme (past events have included seafood, cheese, truffles and more). This time, they focused on sustainably raised meat and …
You can’t beat that price and I really like being able to sidle up to the bar and order whatever strikes my fancy at the moment. Plus, they’ve got some of the most inviting patio seating in the Gaslamp Quarter. Think comfy couches and low tables. Perfect for relaxing and people watching.
And, if I decide to stay for dinner, their 3 for $30 dinner specials look amazing. Tomato bisque, grilled salmon with …
San Diego is notably a great summer destination and Sundays seem to shine around here. If you’re looking for something to do on the last day of your weekend, check out these Sunday activities.
Free Fun For The Family
Spend quality time with the family and enjoy these Sunday specials:
The Promenade Concert in the Park Series: Grab a spot and picnic in the park. Coronado’s Spreckels Park hosts free concerts every Sunday evening throughout the summer. On the first and third Sunday of the month, come early and browse the works of local artists during Art-In-The-Park.
Well, its Friday. Today, after work, I think I’m going to treat myself and hit up Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar.
How can I afford to sip and nosh at a ritzy steakhouse when it’s not a birthday, anniversary or other big-time occasion?
I’m hip to their ”5 for 6 ’til 7” deal and you should be too.
From 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. nightly, Fleming’s offers five appetizers, five wines and five awesome cocktails all for just $6 each.
So, order up some tenderloin carpaccio, a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon and a basil lemon drop. Or splurge on jumbo …
