I still laugh when I hear the kids from Sandlot say that “for-ev-er”. It’s almost classic ’cause when you say it once in conversation, seemingly every one picks up on it or recognizes the classic movie then the conversation begins about classic movies etc. When we talk about classic movies, I have to take you back into time for a short tour of a great … Continue reading The best popcorn – FOR-EV-ER!!!
Met up with a new burger joint in the San Diego (Miramar) area. Woody’s Burgers recently set up shop along Miramar Road in a previous location once inhabited by Boll Weevil and the more recent Bangin’ Burgers. My first and foremost question is, “What makes Woody’s think THEY can survive?” I don’t know the whole story with the other two previous restaurants and their relationship with the owners of … Continue reading Did I really eat the best burger . . . cause I just got a “woody” !

Seems they may have lost their touch with the experience of what used to be a fun time for the family or just a night of food mixed with entertainment.

I’m not too sure I caught all of the hoopla last night. I had an opportunity to check out a new joint that I had been recommended to and yet I have heard rave reviews from various other sources. I think I remember the reviews hyped the desert (butterscotch pudding) and left the remainder of the menu at “meh”. I like pizza on Friday nights … Continue reading Winner of the Blue Ribbon? Maybe I missed something . . .
