It’s The Firkin’ Weekend Baby, I’m About To Have Me Some Fun.

Over 30 Southern California breweries lugged over casks full of beer for the second annual sold-out FirkFest, a festival of cask ale, two Saturdays ago (ha! I’m busy doing stuff, what I can I say?) hosted by the OC Beer Blog. It took place at the cozy Farmer’s Park, located right in the ever-so-hip Packing District of Anaheim. ItContinue reading “It’s The Firkin’ Weekend Baby, I’m About To Have Me Some Fun.”

Backyard Exploring | Crystal Cove

I get caught up with wanting to explore things in the distance, so I told myself to explore my surroundings. Crystal Cove is part of Newport Beach in Orange County, located between the Pacific Ocean and the Pacific Coast highway. What sets this beach apart from the rest is the Historic District of beach cottagesContinue reading “Backyard Exploring | Crystal Cove”

Craft Beer + Food Trucks

What’s my favorite part about living in Southern California? It’s not the perfect weather or the ability to get from the beaches off the Pacific Coast Highway to the snowy mountains of Mammoth in a matter of hours. It’s the fact that I can drive to at least five different breweries all within ten minutes, give or take,Continue reading “Craft Beer + Food Trucks”

Food Truck Fries | OC

First post of the year! What better way to start than with an ode to my favorite, FRENCH FRIES!!! (Or freedom fries for whoever thought that could actually be a thing) My last run with fries in 2013 was with a newer food truck called Porko Rico, the same creators of The Viking Truck. Behold the Captain Porko Fries:Continue reading “Food Truck Fries | OC”

Salty Air, Chicken & Waffles.

Had to drop a friend off in the early morning hours at the Long Beach Airport. It was so early that Roscoe’s House of Chicken and Waffles wasn’t even open yet, so I decided to kill some time by heading to Redondo Beach. When I moved to California, I thought I would finally be ableContinue reading “Salty Air, Chicken & Waffles.”

Hangry.

I have this problem where when I’m hungry, I like to watch food shows, look at pictures of food, talk about food, etcetera.  Maybe somewhere in my subconscious I feel like my appetite can be satiated through the other senses.  Instead, I get hangry!  But now, I will tell you about the Burger Monster.  Just yesterday, IContinue reading “Hangry.”

Turning Japanese.

Any given day, a sushi craving would automatically send my boyfriend and I to Kaisen Kaiten Sushi, but this time we decided to stay close and try something new.  Yori Modern Japanese Cuisine just opened in Brea, CA and a couple of my friends recommended the place, giving it a stamp of approval.  I’m alwaysContinue reading “Turning Japanese.”

Keepin’ it Raw!

My number one food of choice? SUSHI! Hands down.  When I get sad + stressed, I want sushi, when I’m happy, I want sushi. I could probably eat it all day, everyday, and still be pleased. Last night I was even watching Ramsay’s Best Restaurant on Netflix and told my boyfriend that I would ratherContinue reading “Keepin’ it Raw!”
