So all of this nostalgia means that our visits to San Diego tend to be a little different than our typical Gastronomic Globe Trotting. Instead of trying to track down the latest and greatest restaurant or looking for an authentic "taste of place" we tend to just stick to our old haunts (mostly in/near Pacific Beach) and hang out with friends. That being said, a lot of our old haunts are the perfect taste of San Diego to us (and pretty darn cheap since we were so poor!) so I think you'll enjoy some of our favorites when you're in town as well:
Have any favorite spots to imbibe of your own in NOLA that you don't see listed here? If so please share! Otherwise, happy drinking...and as Dave said to me, "be safe and have fun out there. But not too much fun....we want you back in NOLA for more!!"
Chi-town, the Windy City, Chicagoland, Second City, New Gotham (God, I love the new Batman movies!)...whatever you call it, Chicago is an exciting city. Especially in the summer and fall before the frigid lake breeze starts to pick up. So we considered ourselves pretty lucky when I had a business trip to Peoria, IL scheduled for late September... weekend trip to Chicago, anyone? Definitely!
I actually haven't been to Chicago more than quick stop overs in years, but my Grandfather lived there and I have lots of friends who have lived there for extended periods of time so we had lots of good recommendations and resources when planning this trip. Christian's never been to Chicago at all, so it will be excited to explore it together. We only have 2 1/2 days so it will be a quick trip, but we're packing as much in as we can!
Of course, please leave me a comment if you think we're missing out on any must-eats or must-sees from our itinerary below...
Austin, Texas...boy have we heard great things about this place! But until now, we haven't had a chance to get there so we were super excited when we found out that our good friend Michelle was getting married there. So excited that we decided to take a normal quick wedding trip and turn it into a 5 day trip so we really have time to explore. As usual, I've tapped into my fellow T-Bird network and done my usual research to create the itinerary below. Not surprisingly, there's a big focus on BBQ and music which sounds like a fun vacation to us!We're leaving on Friday 9/23 so if you think we're missing something big from our trip leave a comment and let us know! As always, our itineraries are meant as starting guides, but totally flexible in nature so we can swap things around and abandon others completely once we land and start talking to locals...
