One of the benefits of working at a shopping center is getting to shop on my lunch break. Urban Girl Accessories is my go-to gift giving spot. They have socially conscious gifts as well as products made by local San Diego artists.
If I had the day off, I would head to Bergamot Spa in Encinitas; the little massage huts make me feel like I am on vacation. Then, for lunch, I would get a tofu monk’s stone pot at East Village Asian Diner located on the 101. Perfect day.
Lunch meetings happen often because of where I work, so many good options are just steps from my office! One of my favorite spots is Puesto. I adore their comfortable patio that overlooks Headquarters’ historic courtyard. They recently added some mushroom tacos to the menu that blew my mind.
Time to meet my friends at Princess Pub for a drink after work. I have been going there for 14 years, and it never gets old. Good drinks and good food in a laid back bar setting.
Date night with my husband is usually super casual. One of our go-to spots is Tacos el Gordo on H Street in Chula Vista. Living in San Diego, we are surrounded by spectacular Mexican food, but Tacos el Gordo’s adobada tostadas are the best, hands down.
My parents live in Little Italy, so they don’t have to ask me twice to come to their neck of the woods for dinner. Our favorite family dinner spot is Solunto’s.
On Sundays, you can find me in Point Loma keeping score at my husband’s baseball games. We always make sure to stop by Con Pane for a Turkey Cobb sandwich. Their fresh baked bread is what makes their sandwiches special.
