Cafe Japengo (Lunch) – La Jolla, CA

I’ve been bumping into random friends who’ve almost made it their mission to get me to be social and return a hug. It’s been humbling and heart warming. A close friend has been keeping tabs on me the last few weeks and will give me something to look forward to almost every week. It’s like… Read More Cafe Japengo (Lunch) – La Jolla, CA

YELP EVENTS

Seasons 52 (Yelp Event) – La Jolla, CA

You either love or hate Yelp. You either love, hate, or put up with Yelpers. Or you secretly look at Yelp but don’t admit it. I’ve been yelping for so long that I don’t agree or disagree with those statements. The events Yelp hosts with restaurants tend to be memorable. It’s a way for an… Read More Seasons 52 (Yelp Event) – La Jolla, CA

Urban Plates – La Jolla, CA

I visited Urban Plates over the weekend. I can’t even remember why I was in the area. Probably because I was too cheap this weekend to turn on the a/c so I was looking for places that had it blasting in their establishments. I have seen Urban Plates expand over the years. We were huge… Read More Urban Plates – La Jolla, CA

The Grill at Torrey Pines

I have a fondness for Torrey Pines. My grandfather used to love the public golf course here. Growing up, he would tell me the time slots (to tee off) were difficult to obtain. The time slots he did get would be early mornings. He was excited when sis and I obtained our driver license(s) so… Read More The Grill at Torrey Pines

Barbarella (Brunch) – La Jolla, CA

Happy Good Friday 2017 everyone. Easter is upon us and I’m looking forward to quietly celebrating with family. What’s the most important meal during this time though. You know the answer.
