Need something to tide you over until San Diego Beer Week in November? I just found these cool videos on DRAFT Magazine’s website of behind the scenes tours they took at Karl Strauss and Stone – two of the biggest names in San Diego craft brewing.
The other weekend, the guys and I took a little trip to a destination famous for its gambling opportunities and had a great time. But in truth, I spent very little time at the tables and slots. Why did I forgo this intregal part of the trip, you ask? ‘Cause I’ve got plenty of opportunities to gamble here in […]
Last week I was lucky enough to attend Kona Kai Resort’s first luau of the summer. Having only experienced a luau in Hawaii when I was all of 11 years old, I had no idea what I was in for. Was I supposed to bring my own hula skirt? Did you have to eat the […]
While it is a good bet that on any given night of the week you’ll find me in one of San Diego’s numerous 24 hour Taco Shops, that doesn’t mean that I don’t like to “suit up” and head someplace nice for dinner every once in a while. There are so many options in town […]
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 […]
I’m a believer in letting the music speak for itself, so I’ll try not to go on too long. Let me just point you in the right direction. Here are some swingin’ venues I’ve tried.

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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
Last weekend, the Los Angeles Times and the Orange County Register both ran stories that will get you itching to hit the road. The Times wrote about seeking out great craft beer and specifically highlighted brewery tours in San Diego. The Register did a “choose your own” adventure story featuring everything from the Loews Surf Dog Competition to Fleet Week with a […]
