About 5 years ago I started hearing stories about the Party Cab. Friends would call me after a wild night at the bars on Garnet Ave. and tell me that the highlight of their night was getting into an unassuming taxi cab, and once inside seeing the cab lit up with blacklights, glowsticks, and having […]
The new memorial at Tuna Harbor Park, “A National Salute to Bob Hope and the Military,” is the crowning piece in the Port of San Diego Public Art program’s Greatest Generation Collection, which is a series of art pieces and memorials honoring people, events and military heritage from World War II to present day. Bob Hope’s presence in the collection is fitting since that is just about the same span of time that he entertained U.S. troops overseas.

For those who have forgotten how much fun it is to play dress up and enjoy a cup of tea with your grandma/stuffed animals/imaginary friends, I advise you to throw on your best dress and head to the nearest tea room – stat. I brought my sorority alumnae group to Mrs. Burton’s Tea Room and Victorian Shop […]
Sure the San Diego County Fair is about rides, rodeos and crazy food concoctions, but I’d like to highlight my 2nd favorite part of the fair: The garden exhibits. My favorite part of the fair is actually the petting zoo, but writing a whole post called “My Love of Sheep” or “How I Wish I Could Hug All […]
One of the most overlooked aspects of San Diego is our abundance of great golf courses. Despite perfect weather and an amazing selection of courses we are still not given our due credit as a golf destination. I recently played a few rounds at the course where I learned the game, Sycuan Resort. The course […]
