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…

The Nood Bar- North Park

Each year, we revamp the list to add new additions based on friends’ recommendations, Instagram posts, and places we have seen along the way. We make the new list each year in February on the anniversary of my move to San Diego. (Yes, we are cheesy. Get over it.) Sometimes however, we randomly try a…

Taco Nazo – Bellflower, CA

My grandmother has lived in Bellflower, CA (up by Long Beach) for my entire life (and even more of hers!). This means I have been going to Bellflower for almost 29 years now. So imagine my shock when I found out on of the hottest fish tacos places I had been checking out on Instagram…

Blind Lady Ale House- Normal Heights

In (belated) honor of the Dineamic Duo’s three year anniversary of being an amazing couple, we are going to talk about the first drinking establishment Ian ever took me to in San Diego way back in 2014. As many of you know, Ian and I first met in 2014 when my cousin (Cayla) and her…

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…
