Bend Excursion

Now that we did a fake trip to our own hometown, how about we discuss a REAL trip we took to Bend, Oregon? Doesn’t that sound fun?! Two weeks ago we took a trip up to Bend (in the midst of a GIANT snowstorm) to visit Ian’s sister Nicole and her husband, Justin. Bend is…

Day 3

Who is excited for the last day of our fake trip? Or are you just excited for our little experiment to be over? Personally, I’m a little bit of both! Just kidding, I love hosting both real and fake guests!  Today is going to be a little bit more relaxed than our other days. Today…

DAY TWO

  Good morning, everyone! Did you get some rest last night? Are you ready for the second day of our imaginary trip? Let’s get out there and pretend to see the city! We tend to plan our days around big, hearty breakfasts. After all, it is the most important meal of the day! (Side note:…

Three Day Weekend In San Diego

  Hi team! We are going to try another little experiment this week. Inspired by this week’s three day weekend, and a little encouragement from a fan (Hi Don!), we are going to use this blog to help you plan your next long weekend in sunny San Diego! As we have mentioned before, we love…

Tacos, Cookies, and Beer

Today’s installment of Dineamic Duo is going to be a little bit different. Instead of talking about one place or restaurant, we are going to talk about an experience. A very San Diego experience. I thought it would be a fun reprieve from listening to me pretend to know how to properly describe my culinary…

Curryosity- South Park

Ian and I love living in South Park. It’s hip and fun, but still quiet and removed enough to not have to deal with any mayhem. The one thing we always say though, is that we are somewhat limited in good restaurants close to home. We typically go to North Park or Normal Heights to…

Dunedin – North Park

(Editors Note – Sean, not Ian, wearing a Captain Kiwi shirt) The topic of today’s blog is redemption. Sweet, sweet redemption. The restaurant in today’s blog is one we have wanted to write a story on for quite a while. However, it never felt quite right. We loved the food every time we went, but…

Anny’s Fine Burgers- Kearny Mesa

Ok, I bet y’all are sick of hearing this by now, but I love burgers. They are my favorite food. Fancy burgers, sloppy burgers, traditional, you name it. In the words of Ash Ketchum, I have got to catch them all. Or try them all. Wait, did anyone else know his last name was Ketchum?…

Red Maple Cafe- Burbank

Dear readers, I must start this blog entry with an apology. My blog entries have been… absent lately. For that, I extend my sincere apologies. As you all know, the holidays can be a hectic time, and Ian and I spent it with friends and families. We had a great holiday season, and we hope…

Casa de Pico- La Mesa

Everyone knows San Diego is a city of good Mexican food. We have touched on this a time or two in our previous blogs. We have talked about great taco shops, hole in the wall cantinas, and so on. Today, we are going to talk about a legitimate Mexican restaurant fully decked out with bright…
