Casero Taqueria – Carlsbad, CA

Last weekend, Sean and Tara invited us up to C-bad (Carlsbad for those of you who are behind on the times) to check out a new taqueria near them. Tara’s twin, Missy, joined us in the adventure too! (So of course I looked like some sort of crazy twin groupie). It’s a cozy little neighborhood…

Pomegranate- North Park

Pomegranate is a restaurant I have been dying to try for well over a year now. I had seen pictures on instagram, heard whispers, and driven by it a million times. So finally, the stars aligned and Ian and I dragged our friends Lashley and Andy over to El Cajon Boulevard to check it out. …

Turf Supper Club- Golden Hill

Everyone should know by now that Ian and I love old aesthetics. We love blasts from the past. Especially ones that have stood the test of time and come out largely unchanged. For a while, Ian has been telling me about Turf Supper Club in Golden Hill. It is a funky, old school joint complete…

Brunch in the Crown Room- Hotel Del Coronado

  Last weekend was a big milestone for the Dineamic Duo. We finally crossed a big one off the list – one we have talked about since the beginning! I am, of course, referring to having brunch in the Crown Room of the Hotel Del Coronado. As you all know, we are ritzy enough that…

Tacos El Gordo- Chula Vista

All right, y’all. This a big one. Tacos El Gordo has been on our list since the beginning. When I first moved here, I worked in Chula Vista for a little bit. All the girls that worked there swore by the tacos at Tacos El Gordo. They all said they were the most legit tacos…

Grand Ole BBQ Flinn Springs

All right, truth time. I stole this idea straight from a recent episode of DDD. I saw Guy Fieri eating there and I just had to try it myself. Plus, I’m a sucker for a good BBQ place. As we have previously established, you can take the girl out of the South, but not the…

Black Market Bakery- North Park

So this blog is a first! It is our first piece about a bakery. Which is super odd because I am OBSESSED with baked goods. Baked goods are in the top five things I love most in my life (that list also includes Scruffy… and Ian, of course!). Few things bring me pure joy like…

Toast – Carlsbad

Did y’all know that breakfast is not actually any more important than lunch or dinner? That whole thing was just a marketing ploy made by the cereal companies of days past to get people to eat more cereal! Isn’t that interesting? That being said… breakfast is the BEST meal of the day. It’s fun and…

El Jardin- Liberty Station

  I have a confession. Sometimes… I stray. I have been known to step out on the Dineamic Duo and try a restaurant without my faithful sidekick, Ian Bassett. (He will HATE that I called him my sidekick… but if the cape fits, babe! -EDITORS NOTE- Richard Grayson, my favorite comic book hero, started out…

Beaufort, SC

  As promised, this is the blog on my old stomping grounds. The lovely Beaufort, South Carolina. For those of you who have not been, please take this advice… go! Go check it out. I cannot paint a glorious enough picture with my puny words. It’s like straight out of a movie! Did I mention…

South Carolina Trip Part One: Charleston

Dear readers, I’d like to apologize for my lapse in entries. Things have been… a little overwhelming on my end for the last few weeks and I just haven’t felt the creative juices flowing. Worry not, they are back and better than ever (maybe? I just felt like that sounded like the right thing to…

Fernside- South Park

Everyone has their favorite late night spot, right? Well, for Ian and I, our late night spot used to be South Park Abbey (about 1.5 miles from our house in the heart of South Park). South Park Abbey was a little dive bar with plenty of beer options and delicious bar food. We used to…
