Shake Shack – La Jolla (UTC), CA

I’ll admit that I buy into the ‘over hyped’. At times. But, sis and I have agreement that no new place is worth a more than 15+ min wait nowadays. We’ve all heard of Shake Shack coming to the revamped UTC mall in La Jolla. I personally didn’t have much knowledge of this burger joint.… Read More Shake Shack – La Jolla (UTC), CA

Larsen’s Steakhouse ($36 Prix Fixe lunch menu) – La Jolla, CA

It is so starting to feel like Christmas. Did you know tomorrow, 12/21, is the first day of winter. I didn’t until a few weeks ago.

Red O ( Yelp Event ) – La Jolla, CA

I thought I’d written off Red O in La Jolla after my last experience here. So I wasn’t going to rsvp for a Yelp event that was being hosted with Red O. Then it hit me that, gosh, a lot has changed and transpired in my life since my last visit here. Forget that the… Read More Red O ( Yelp Event ) – La Jolla, CA

Duke’s La Jolla

I’ve been waiting for Duke’s La Jolla to open. It seemed to take forever for them to remodel/rebuil this location. I had visited once but only did a walk thru. A date night would have been fun here that night but we ended up at a brewery down the street instead. The weather has been… Read More Duke’s La Jolla

Stella Italianfare UTC

I’m used to being made fun of by my friends. I’m an easy target. A sitting duck.

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

My appetite the last few weeks has been a bit off. I haven’t been as hungry so discovering new places to eat hasn’t been a priority.

BJ’s Restaurant is located in… Read More BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse – 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
