Thanks Ela0427 I like that idea best. Snacks. Drinks. Dinner wherever looks good. WE aren't to fancy we just want good cocktails a good buzz and some good grub, just a ladies night making a little trouble ;)

Kettner Exchange is our plan for pre or post cocktails on the night for Juniper and ivy.

I have heard great things about Cafe Chloe, so that may be good.
We actually won't be there until October (I know this is way ahead of time) but I'm so excited and a super planner so I wanted to get as much info as posible

Visiting the area soon and staying in Little Italy but looking forward to starting our Saturday night at the Noble Experiment speakeasy before we go out for dinner and bars, where would be a good place within walking distance to N.E. and also close to soe places we could bar hop after? Ladies weekend.

October Girls Weekend Itinerary Help

My mother and I are spending a long weekend (Friday-Tuesday) in San Diego and I need some help and input on the food/drinking activities.

Hotel: Porto Vista Hotel, Little Italy

Friday:
I get in around noon but my mom doesn't get in 6PM so Friday I was thinking simple cocktails and dinner. Because it is kind of a travel day I was thinkin of staying close to little italy, here are some places I am thinking about:
Kettner Exchange
Waterfront Bar & Grill
Ironside Fish & Oyster

Any other places worth going for cocktails and or dinner. I am all about the idea of having a pre-dinner cocktail somewhere there going somewhere else for dinner.

Saturday: La Jolla
After some hiking I was thinking of hitting up Oscars Mexican Seafood for Lunch.
After lunch and resting/lounging at the hotel we are looking to really have a fun night out. I really want to start at the noble experiment for pre-dinner drinks, but from there I don't know what to do for dinner. We will probably be taking a cab/uber for the evening so going to a different neighborhood for dinner and night cap cocktails isn't an issue. Suggestions? Very open to all cuisines,
I just love good food. Something not super fancy but where we wouldn't stick out if we were a little dressed up strutting' in our heals. Anything from Latin to African to Italian etc.

Sunday:Brunch, Exercise & Chargers game
Sunday is a little smashed because we want to hit the charges game and the gates open around 3pm so I was thinking before that all that will be done is some yummy brunch and a little exercise. Any suggestions for a good well rounded brunch?

What about post-chargers game eats, where do ya'll grub down post sports events?

Monday:Coronado Island
Monday we want to spend sometime relaxing around Coronado island or some other beach relaxing area (suggestions?) any idea for a fresh healthy yummmy light lunch?

For dinner sushi is a MUST. My plan is Sushi Ota, thoughts?

Tuesday: Leave :(

ATTENTION: We would love to take a tour of Stone Brewery, looking at our plan, when would be the best time to try and squeeze that in?

Let me know what ya'll think!

Late Night Little Rock, AK

Hey all Hounds!!!
So I will be in Little Rock August 2nd for a fitness competition. I have been training and dieting hard for a VERY long time and after this show I get to eat WHATEVER I want. The only problem I have is that the show probably wont be done with the show until 11pm/midnight. So I need your help to on where to eat late night in Little Rock that isn't a complete grease pot/bar munchies place. It doesn't really matter where the place is I don't mind the drive, but we will be at the Marriot downtown (formerly the peabody) just so you have an idea of our starting point. THANKS!!!

Late Night Eating in Bellevue

Update, well my event didn't get over until 11:15 so Kobe was out, and I really didn't want John Howie or something like that, and I actually found a Korean BBQ place that was open until midnight! Blue Ginger Korean Grill and Sushi was nice enough to fire up the grill at 11:30PM and I got a delicious meat meal late night, check it out!

Late Night Eating in Bellevue

The show is at the Maydenbauer Center and we are staying at the Courtyard Marriot, so that is why I thought maybe Kobe, any other yummy places semi-close to that area open maybe even till 12AM?

I think 13 coins is where we are going to end up, how far is that from the airport, and overall is that a good decision in regards, to variety, quality, atmosphere and ease?

I will be in Bellevue for the Emerald Cup the weekend of April 25th. I have Saturday to explore Seattle for all the great culinary adventures it possesses, but on Sunday my flight leaves at 10:30AM but I want to get some kind of breakfast with my family that is in the area before the flight. I am thinking that I want to be at the airport around 8:45/9:00AM any idea of where we could get some grub in Bellevue or close to the airport before our flight? I am staying in Bellevue so anywhere in the area or on the way to the airport would be great, thanks!!! Open to all kinda of food!!!!

Steak in Columbus, Ohio

I will be Columbus this weekend for the Arnold Sport Festival. I am getting one meal where I can eat more of what I want rather than what is on my current meal plan for my training. What I am looking for is a really good steak and sweet potatoes and veggies. Where is the best place to find a meal kind of like that? It's going to be dinner Saturday night, HELP! I LOVE steak!

Those weird things you eat when you are in your kitchen

I eat cold cooked tilapia all the time, sometimes with spray butter...

Raw dough or any kid rocks my socks.

cold bacon and butter sandwiches sounds fantastic. I also enjoyed sliced cheese and mayo sandwiches, cold on mushy white bread, yummy.

All about the vinegar shots. My BF is filipino so I am all over the vinegar train.

I am a big fan of salsa by the spoonful as well as canned cold beans (garbanzo, kidney, refried etc.) while standing with the frig door open.
