Weekend Recap: November 15-16, 2014
It has been one of my missions as an adult to find a “place.” When I was in San Francisco, my friends and I thought we found a bar that would become our place. We’d become regulars and they’d cheer every time we came around. Well that never happened, but that dumb idea still lingers in the back of my dumb head. Here in the L.A. area, the closest I can say to having a “place” is Golden Road Brewery. It’s not terribly close, but it’s worth the drive to drink some good beer in a chill environment. Am I a regular? No. Does anyone there know my name? Nope, not even a little bit. But it’s usually among the first choices thrown out when my best friend is in town and wants to hang…so that’s as close to a “place” as I’m getting. I’ll take it!
On Saturday we made the little over half hour drive to Golden Road to sit, drink some beer and do lots of people watching (which are two of my favorite things…ever). We went into the photobooth and great (read: ugly) memories were made. Example below.
Sunday, Frank, my parents and I decided to make the 2.5 hour drive down to San Diego. Why? Well with the holidays quickly approaching (eeks!), my parents decided that it would be a good time to take a trip before my dad becomes totally consumed by work (my dad works and has worked in the restaurant industry my whole life and the holidays are super stressful and busy for my dad). It’s always fun and encouraging to spend time with my parents. Their relationship is constantly motivating and always leaves me hopeful for what my own marriage will be like after 30 years.
We spent a fun day at Old Town San Diego where we ate some bomb tacos and walked around taking in all the rustic charm that San Diego has to offer. By charm I mostly mean food. Example below!
We ended the night with an AMAZING dinner (yay! more food!) over looking the harbor. It was tiring and well worth it (the sign of any good weekend activity). Until next weekend!
