  • 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.

  • We Tried A Cardiff Staycation Now I Wonder Why We Didn't Do This Before

    The term "staycation" has been out there a lot, but I never really appreciated it until I had an opportunity to work with a local vacation rental company last month. They hosted us in Cardiff - a beach community in North County San Diego - and now I understand why this idea is so popular. Simply put, it allowed Heather and I to spend a few days relaxing in a new setting and doing things together that we might do on vacation - but without the hassles and headaches of traveling somewhere.

    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.

  • 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.

  • We Took A Back Country "Buffalo" Eco Tour On Catalina Island

    Catalina Island is one of the not so hidden secrets sitting just off the coast of Southern California. Since it was first settled by wealthy industrialists it has been an escape that while only 22 miles from Los Angeles is quite literally a world away. Most visitors here will be content to simply walk around Avalon, grab drinks, and maybe just enjoy a day with their toes in the sand enjoying the crystal clear waters. I've done that... but what I hadn't done until now was had the opportunity to explore Catalina's back country in search of their iconic buffalo.
