The 4th of July?…or just in the blood!

Desiring to fulfill the great american dream of watching fireworks for the 4th of July landed my wife, son and I in the great town of Port Hueneme. Where the hell is Port Hueneme? Who cares? We were on the beach watching the crowds develop along the water's edge in gloom-cloudy weather, tossin' a few back and [...]

Brat’s Brothers – Sherman Oaks, CA. – – – Not your ordinary doughnut shop!

What has become almost a tradition, is now more of a pain in the ass. Venturing to far-off lands on a road trip and desiring to stop the car, pee and eat something, has now become more of a burden than an adventure. I'm talking about finding just the right place along the road, family in tow, and [...]

Recognizing Awesomeness – 4th of July

I mean really...look at these. Look at this presentation. Is this just not the most awesome display of an artfully created celebration gift. Made "By Grace", this 4th of July basket was created by my Sister-in-Law for one of her clients. "By Grace" cake pops are available for all occasions, in a variety of colors [...]

Vintana – Lexus of Escondido

Set as a direct competitor to Stone Brewing World Bistro and Garden in Escondido, CA, Chef Deborah Scott and the Cohn Group have set up camp in a very large eclectic venue overlooking a sea of Lexus automobiles; yet feebly elevated slightly above the Escondido Target store shopping promenade, Interstate 15 and the picturesque Escondido Auto Park. http://www.cohnrestaurants.com/menu-restaurants/vintana-wine-dine/ [...]

Food that’s more than “Fair”!

The San Diego County Fair - formerly the Del Mar Fair, presented a certain level of anticipation and grotesque thoughts of diving elbow-deep into a world of fried artichoke hearts, bacon-wrapped turkey legs and deep-fried Kool-Aid. I was processing delusional thoughts of having a churning sensation in my belly while singing "That's the way I like it" along with KC and [...]

San Diego’s Best – Gauchito Argentine Grill

I'm just going to call it the best in San Diego. Gauchito Argentine Grill http://gauchito-grill.com/ . We really don't have many from which to choose. So fortunate to have the best right nearby! Traveling through San Marcos, we've stopped here before; and desiring to try again, often stopped by to find them closed on Sundays. Well, today [...]

Miramar Cafe… Or, some people have no clue!

Sounded like it might have a possibility, The Miramar Cafe on Miramar Rd just outside the West Gate of MACS Miramar near San Diego promised fast service and specialties of Greek, American and Mexican cuisine. I anticipated a popular local, and good, comfort food emporium in which to hail...and claim as a close-to-work sneak out! [...]

Gin and Juice – the real deal about The Pechanga BBQ Championships!

I was excited to visit my first food competition event. This was in Temecula, CA. I guess that's kinda appropriate. There were many competitors and a handful of vendors. Busy but not crowded. The event was scheduled from 10am to 6pm. We arrived, hungry, at 1pm to find most of the chicken was gone. Having just rocked [...]
