Bijou and I had the opportunity to go to San Diego last weekend to support Olive in her race in the San Diego Crew Classic. The trip was a bit last minute and I think we may have scored the last hotel room on Mission Bay. We had a wonderful weekend and discovered a few awesome spots I wanted to share...
Hotel: The Dana.
Breakfast: Better Buzz Coffee in Mission Beach. Bijou indulged in their assortment of baked goods and I fell in love with their Acai breakfast bowl so we ended up going back twice!
or the Mission in Mission Beach for the delicious chilaquiles
Do: Since I wouldn't agree to drive Bijou to LA so she could become an aspiring actress we decided on Seaworld. If you want to avoid a 2,000 calorie lunch, I recommend Pineapple Pete's cafe at Seaworld for salads, paninis and fresh fruit.
Dinner: The Corvette Diner Huge menu, awesome authentic diner decor, waitresses in poodle skirts and sassy attitudes, dance performances and songs. It kind of reminded me of my trip to Club Med many years ago. Ohh, and first-timers get a crazy straw hairdo.
Fly: Southwest, if you book in advance, tickets from OAK to SAN can be cheap.
