This Tasty Life: Sunny Side Kitchen up

 A few weekends ago Jake, T and I went around North County land for another one of Jake’s chiropractor appointments. This little jaunts up north allow us to explore some unknown territory and with the help of the internet I scoped out a place called Sunny Side Kitchen at Escondido. Sunny Side Kitchen is a super cute little cafe that’s open for breakfast and lunch….


Money Pit Drive Thru, San Marcos

 Jake and I were up in the Northland (aka North County) for a little errand. The little errand took much longer than we though it would and it was quite late by the time we got around to eating dinner. I did some Yelpy research and found a place called The Money Pit Drive Thru and decided to go there because the name sounded rad….

Meet the new Vons, same as the old Vons

Forgive the deja vu feeling at Rancho Santa Fe Road and San Marcos Boulevard, but Vons is back in town. The once-and-future store has made a dizzying and stomach-returning journey from Vons to Haggen to Albertsons and back to Vons over the course of two years. Blink, and blink again, at 8 a.m. Wednesday, March 16 as the old Vons re-opens as — ta-da —…


What’s in your gas station? BBQ?

These events have in the past featured…
