Typhoon Saloon, PB Bar & Grill, Surfside Sushi and Moondoggies have all closed

March 18, 2016
What in the world is happening? All of the bars that I've frequently visited during my SDSU years have all closed! Two of the most memorable for me were Typhoon Saloon and Pacific Beach (PB) Bar & Grill and they have both closed within the last year. I actually met my husband at PB Bar & Grill and now that piece of history is gone forever. 

Moondoggies closed about a year before Typhoon Saloon and PB & Bar & Grill and that was the first one that really felt close to home. 

Even the place where my husband and I went on our first date closed down. Do any of you guys remember Kabuki Sushi? It was the only conveyor belt sushi in San Diego and I wish they seriously did better online marketing because they eventually went out of business and now new ones are emerging around San Diego. 

Surfside Sushi was the place my friends and I would go for Monday happy hour. That is gone too. 
 

Most Recent Trip to SeaWorld may be our Last Time seeing a Killer Whale

January 15, 2015
After the frenzy about the "Black Fish" movie, many people are boycotting Sea World and trying to make it illegal to hold killer whales in captivity. Being from San Diego, I grew up seeing Shamu as a kid at Sea World San Diego and I am terribly sad that it's going to be something I'll never see again at the park. We learned a lot about these animals, all thanks to Sea World. 

Last year, we went to Sea World San Diego and this time we brought our baby son. To see killer whales up close like tha...

Who is Slo Mo?

October 3, 2014
Every resident knows of Slow ("Slo") Mo in Pacific Beach. He is that graceful rollerblader who always wears a blue tank or shirt. He skates to classic music out loud and does slow motion.

Moondoggies is no more and it feels like an end of an era

March 2, 2014
I had a lot of memories at Moondoggies. It was one of my go to spots when I was 21 years old and a senior at SDSU. I associate Moondoggies with my college years and the few years after it. Well, it's now closed and new businesses like Duck Dive prosper and take more of the market share. Who can blame them? They have great food and sit really close to the water. 

To me, it feels like it's an end to my era. I am no longer that 20 something year old and those memories are only in mind with no phy...

Are you in the military and married? Are you relocating to a new city for a new job?

January 13, 2014
There's a lot of military men and women in San Diego and many of them are married. Did your spouse had to quit her job because of a military relocation? If so, she may be eligible for unemployment benefits, depending on what state you quit job your job at. There's a list online that you can check. If it's California, then you are definitely eligible. See a story of another military spouse's situation when she applied for unemployment benefits due to her husband's job relocation.

Ring in the 2014 new year with a resolution you can achieve

December 29, 2013
We're ringing in the new year in 3 days and many people don't think of a new year's resolution until the very last minute when the conversation is brought up and that's usually when the partying has already started.

Many people don't meet their new year's resolution because they made it too broad or too hard to reach. Saying you're going to stress less for the new year is an example of a broad resolution. What is the thing that is stressing you out? Work? Relationships? Money? If it is work, ...

Rigoberto's is a great place for 24 hour Mexican food in La Jolla, CA

September 11, 2013

While I was staying in La Jolla, I was craving a California burrito at 5am in the morning. You know if you're in San Diego, you must have a California burrito because they don't sell it anywhere else in California. I googled the closest taco shop that's open for 24 hours and found Rigoberto's in La Jolla, CA. I guess there are two but look for the one that's a small taco shop. For $5, the burrito was huge! I was full after eating 75% of it. The hot sauce is super hot. I recommend coming here ...

Labor Day weekend at Typhoon Saloon in Pacific Beach

September 8, 2013
I went to Typhoon Saloon in Pacific Beach for Labor Day weekend with 16 other people. We wanted to do some catching up with our friends so we decided to meet at 7pm there. There was a lot of room for us and the place was quiet enough for us to hear each other without yelling. The clubbing crowd doesn't come until 10pm. A lot of people don't know this but Typhoon Saloon also serves Fred's menu so if you want more TV screens and a more casual eating room, go there. We ended up staying until pas...
