A Bloody Mary Menu with House-infused Vodkas Steal the Show at Biergarden, Encinitas

Biergarden does have a large selection of San Diego brews on tap but I decided on Biergarden because of their brunch and FULL Bloody Mary menu! The bloody mary menu definitely steals the show! Not one, not two, not three, but FIVE bloody marys for your tasting and drinking pleasure. In a sea of tomato juice, vodka, and celery sticks, nothing makes your girl more excited than variety and individuality (that goes for my food and life in general).

Brunchfaced: Mother's Day Weekend

One of the busiest days in the dining industry is mothers day, and for good reason! It’s a day for us to treat our moms and celebrate them for all they do! Mom’s need to get brunchfaced once in a while too! There are sooooooo many places offering wonderful Mothers Day specials but I’ve narrowed down my list this time to a few places. For a HUGE list check out our friends at THERE San Diego’s list here.

Hand-crafted Micheladas and Mexican Gastronomy Awaits You at URBANA Anaheim in the Packing District

 The fish tacos were an unexpected star of the show, but I traveled to Anaheim to try URBANA’S trio of distinctive, hand-crafted, and colorful micheladas. I love micheladas but typically they consist of the same minimal ingredients and taste very similar, so I was excited to try some unique spins on the classic Mexican drink. All made from different scratch ingredients and different colors, which fits right in with the decor, URBANA boasts the Tradicional, Aguachile, and Toro Rojo micheladas.

Day Dining at the Newly Opened Fort Oak in Mission Hills

In a sea of chilaquiles, breakfast burritos, and huevos rancheros, typical for Southern California brunch menus, Fort Oak is pushing the boundaries of what a brunch menu can be. Trust me there is nothing better than having a hangover, drinking a stiff bloody mary and devouring a giant breakfast burrito, but it is also nice to have a more refined and upscale brunch experience. When you try a new restaurant and get the experience of tasting something you’ve never experienced before; don’t us brunchers and day diners deserve the same experience?

Brunchfaced: Saint Patrick's Day Weekend

I’m super stoked about this weekend and to be celebrating here in San Diego!! For Saturday, I only have one plan and that’s to attend the shamROCK block party in the Gaslamp District!!

What's Your Kitchen Story? The Millionaire Mary from Kitchen Story, San Francisco

When I first sipped Kitchen Story’s Millionaire Mary, I wasn’t sure what to think. Before I could even process the flavors, my mom’s best friend, Lisa, had already drank her entire bloody! The bloody mary has a succulent and sweet flavor, combined with a slightly more than subtle horseradish kick that tickles your tongue. Growing up in kitchens I learned all about the wonders of onions and what they can do to elevate food. The finely minced onions in the mix brightens the sweetness of the tomatoes while the saltiness of the rim balances the hangover concoction perfectly.
