Though the summer solstice isn’t technically until June 21st, with the passing of Memorial Day and the warmer temperatures the city has been boasting as of late, I think it’s safe to say that everyone’s beloved season is upon us. Which means a few things: 1) it’s really time to get serious about getting […]

The Rose Wine Pub in South Park makes me swoon and feel all giddy! If this cozy watering hole were a boy I would totally want to marry it and have little Rose Wine Pub babies. Okay, that’s weird, but you get my point — I have […]

Tuesday -the forgotten day of the week; better than the dreaded Monday, but not quite as appreciated as Hump Day and most definitely not as anticipated as Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. It seems to fall into that step-sister category, forced to scrub the floors and sweep the chimney to […]

My name is Shawna and I’m a sushi-a-holic. But despite my boundless love for seaweed-wrapped bites of rice and fish, there was a time, not long ago in fact, when the thought of consuming raw seafood made me cringe.

Growing up in San Diego, and with Mexico literally in my backyard, I have become quite the Mexican cuisine connoisseur over the years. In fact, I might go as far as to say that I’m bit of a Mexican food snob. But how can you blame me? I have access to some of the […]

It was May 2003: I wore pastel pink and danced the night away and, though it sounds cliche, it was probably one of my most memorable moments in High School. Yes, I’m talking about Senior prom. And though MY glory days are almost a decade behind me, that doesn’t mean that there aren’t many […]
