Apologies for the lack of light this time around. We ate a lot later than the last meal we had and the sun was nowhere to be found. Michael and I didn’t order this drink duo but we had to get a picture of it. As we are not huge drinkers we let them handle the fancy drink.…Read more
Darren and I first tried Iceskimo this Summer when they opened up as a popup store (inside the Pangea Bakery). They only had a few options back then, but it was certainly memorable as our favorite snow ice in San Diego. (*If you’re from L.A. you probably have had, or heard of Blockheads). Anyhow, Iceskimo finally opened their brick and mortar store on the corner of the Dumpling Inn shopping center Nov. 1st. Parking isn’t the best, but it’s worth the hassle IMHO.
Inside is a simple and clean setup. You can choose from two sizes, regular or large.…Read more
Our favorite French Patisserie, Le Parfait Paris, has finally unveiled it’s newest storefront in the heart of downtown San Diego. It’s been a special project in the works for the past year or so, but I assure you the wait has been well worth it. Darren and I recently went to checkout the new location and definitely were not disappointed. The new location is stunning. With clean lines, colorful delights, and tall windows, the space couldn’t be more inviting. They are also open late on weekends!
We were greeted with some classic delights, as well as some new ones too. …Read more
Darren and I recently joined a San Diego Media dinner hosted by the Kona Kai Resort on Shelter Island. The Kona Kai recently completed a $22 million overhaul of the resort and revamped their flagship restaurant, Vessel. Vessel includes a 360-degree bar with sweeping views of San Diego’s beautiful bay front. The interior has been brushed with a vibrant sea foam green against distressed wood throughout. I found the overall ambiance to be upscale, relaxing, and inviting. Vessel is now headed by Executive Chef Roy Hendrickson. As a native Southern Californian who has traveled and lived abroad in Europe, Chef Roy brings years of diverse experience and inspiration to his food and does his best to share that gift with this patrons.…Read more
Darren and I were recently invited to check out Prospect Bar and Grill right in the heart of La Jolla. They recently did a major renovation to their space and it looked great! We arrived just in time to see the incredible sunset that makes La Jolla famous.
They’ve got a killer view from their patio and we decided to eat outside on their patio since it was great weather.
Their glass enclosed patio sit atop the second floor and overlooks Prospect St. all the way down to The Cove. We were also met with live music which is a recurring feature during the week. …Read more
