  • Prince St Pizza Brings A Taste Of New York City To San Diego

    You may have heard of Prince St Pizza as an iconic New York City pizza shop that has rapidly joined the ranks of regional favorites that are now available nationwide through Gold Belly. However, they have also been aggressively expanding with retail locations too. Most recently, that list of places that you can get authentic New York pizza now includes San Diego! I don't say this lightly but I was actually pretty impressed with these guys and as any fan of pizza in the Big Apple knows... it's all about the water.

  • City Bonfires Is A Perfect Smores Solution When You Can't Build A Campfire

    Smores are delicious. Unfortunately, to do them right you really need a live flame and that can be dangerous. During the summer and fall, while hanging out in the backyard or camping outdoors a fire is easy to accommodate for most folks but what about in winter? in the rain? and for folks like myself who live in an apartment? Well... unfortunately, we're usually left out of the fun. City Bonfires though has introduced a solution and we're very impressed by what they've created.

  • The Prestige By Mystique Dining Is A Magical Option For Date Night In San Diego

    There is a wide diversity of options when it comes to date night ideas but on New Year's Eve it gets a bit more complicated since way too many businesses look at this as an option to jack the prices up while cutting corners. This has made it quite challenging some years for Heather and I's anniversary but this year she suggested we try a magic show dinner theater that had opened up down the block from our loft in the San Diego Gaslamp. What we experienced last night was an awesomely fun evening of magic, food, and drinks.

  • DreameBot L10s Ultra Is The Perfect Gift For Guys That Hate Chores

    There's a weird double standard that younger men don't quite get and far too many of us learned the hard way. Simply put, despite how cool a gadget is... never buy your female friends or family members something related to cleaning the house. On the other hand, pretty much every gadget-loving guy that I know would be thrilled to unwrap a robot like this. The DreameBot L10s Ultra functions as a vacuum and as a mop and even features auto-emptying as well as self-cleaning functions. 

  • Louisiana Purchase San Diego Is More Than Just Another New Orleans Restaurant

    I love New Orleans, in fact I'm absolutely enamored by the food, music, and culture of Southern Louisiana and it's a surprisingly diverse combination of influences. It's a chaotic gumbo of sometimes conflicting perspectives but very few people are able to communicate why this area is so intoxicating... Chef Quinton Austin though clearly gets it.

  • This ORFELD Stick Vacuum Is Your Multi-Purpose Floor Cleaning Tool

    This is the time of year when messy floors seem to show up only moments after cleaning. Whether it is dirt tracked in from outside, pet visitors who unexpectedly shed all over your couch, or that extra cinnamon you intended to add as a light dusting that now is spilled all over the floor... you need something prepared to help you clean those messes. The ORFELD Stick Vacuum is up to that task!

  • These Solar Powered Outdoor Speakers Are Perfect For Outdoor Entertaining

    While the weather might be getting colder and those of you in northern climates are probably looking at a snow-covered backyard instead of one with crisp green grass, that doesn't mean the time is over for outdoor entertaining. In fact, with these Bluetooth outdoor speakers from iLive it is pretty much ready to go whenever you are because they are both waterproof and solar powered.

  • ODBeleven Makes A Great Gift For A Greasemonkey

    Every occasion challenges us to find the best gift idea for our relatives, and friends.  Finding a good gift for men is even more challenging. What to speak about car lovers since we have so many stereotypes about them in our heads.  And of course, there is no one ideal solution for all but if you’re thinking about something useful – you should think about gadgets that should be in every car.

  • Black Friday Sneak Peak - BLUETTI Unveils Doorbusters and Giveaways

  • Powerboost Pro+ Is The Big Daddy Of Percussion Massagers

    For the most part, most percussion massagers on the market are the same today. The biggest differences tend to be in the style of the massage gun and that comes down to personal preference. While a few (including this one) offer unique attachments to improve their massage performance, they all pretty much do the same thing - pound your muscles into submission. The Powerboost Pro+ by Sharper Image though is different. While it has everything that I mentioned previously, it also comes with Hot and Cold massage heads that are capable of delivering an additional level of therapy to your sore muscles.

  • BLUETTI AC500 Available On Official Store and Amazon November 25th

  • Powerboost Move Percussion Massager Is A Great Traveling Companion

    Percussion massagers are all the rage right now because of their ability to provide strong, deep tissue massages but most are too bulky to travel with. They are also too loud and frankly most are also too powerful for all but the most severe situations. That's where Sharper Image's Powerboost Move deep tissue travel percussion massager comes in... and we dig it!

  • Mobile Pixel DUEX Plus Gives Road Warriors A Second Screen

    I just came back from three weeks on the road and it was the first time where I left my big heavy laptop behind. Despite having a fantastic ultra-portable 13" Dynabook designed for travel, that has been my wife's laptop while I relied on my ancient "mobile desktop". The folks at Mobile Pixels offered to help me change that and make my backpack that much lighter and less complicated to pack for a long trip.

  • The Jeep Grand Cherokee L Is Perfect For Weekend Warrior Dads

    If you are looking for a three-row SUV right now... there are TONS of options but honestly, very few are actually SUVs. Most are crossovers and the ones that remain are giant truck-frame based vehicles that frankly are bigger than most families need. Unfortunately there were few options in the middle and that's where the Jeep Grand Cherokee L comes in. 

  • Affordable Luxury and Style On A Mazda CX-9 Road Trip

    Mazda is a brand that we haven't had much exposure to recently but it continues to fill a very nice niche of affordable luxury and because it isn't focused on serving a mass-market customer, it can deliver a different design experience than other manufactures. For some people this is the right fit and understandably for others it isn't right. That's why test drives are so important and why I enjoy spending time driving these vehicles over a series of days on different terrain. For this road trip, we took the Mazda CX-9 up to Palm Springs and tested it on a mixture of suburban streets, high-speed interstates, and twisty mountain roads. What we found was a very enjoyable and comfortable ride that while not a standout in terms of power or luxury amenities - hit a very attractive price point that is thousands less than comparable 3-row SUVs from luxury brands like Cadillac.

  • Exploring The Desert In A 2022 Silverado ZR2

    One of the things I love about living in San Diego isn't just the pretty awesome weather all year round but rather the hot dusty playground located just on the other side of the mountains from where I live downtown. This is area, the Anza Borrego Desert, is an incredibly playground with a mixture of terrain ranging from insanely tough to perfect for novice riders. You guys know how much I love the Colorado ZR2 and so when we got the chance to take it's big brother then Silverado ZR2 for a spin... well... you know I jumped at the opportunity!

  • A Guide to the Best and Most Popular Restaurants in Mexico

    When most people think of Mexican food, they imagine basic Tex-Mex dishes like tacos and burritos. While these dishes can be delicious, they don't come close to representing the true diversity of Mexican cuisine. There are many amazing restaurants in Mexico that will make you rethink your perception of Mexican cuisine.

  • KIA's EV6 Proves That EV's Can Be Fun As Well As Practical

    Like many advocates for electric vehicles, in the past I've been willing to look past the weaknesses and point to some day in the future when we'll finally "be there". Well I think we've hit that point and while EV's are still mostly limited to sedans and crossover-wagons, the future is bright for bigger vehicles too. Today though, we're talking about our experience taking the all-new Kia EV6 to Electrify Expo in Long Beach where we had a chance to meet with a variety of companies that are filling in the gaps that will ultimately make an EV practical for all prospective car buyers.

  • Bronco Wildtrak Off Road Review

    It would be an understatement to say that Ford's Bronco was one of the most wildly anticipated vehicles to become available this year. Promising to be a "Wrangler Killer" by taking the decades of engineering that Jeep had invested into it's off road king and offering a new perspective, Bronco has some big shoes tires to fill. Is it able to do so? We took it on one of our favorite trails to find out.
