We've been dining at Cohn restaurants for years now (happy birthday babe!) and finally made it out to Sea180° Coastal Tavern. There's one main reason for the tardiness... it's a 40+ minute drive...

I'm always telling myself that we need to brunch more. Hectic work week leads to sleeping later on weekends (especially for this night owl) but admittedly, good food is worth getting out of bed...

Oscar Wilde Irish Pub

I remember seeing Oscar Wilde Irish Pub on the San Diego Burger Week 2016 list. We didn't quite make it then (it was closed the night we were nearby) but dropped by a couple of months later. I had...
