A few of us took off for a mini vacation in San Diego this past week for work/pleasure. We thought we’d better practice doing summer before it finally hits Vancouver (although we hear it came the day we left – classic, Vancouver, just classic move) while also practicing our beach wine drinking. Just kidding. We don’t need to practice that #SeasonedBeachDrinkers #WeCouldTeachAClassOnIt #SorryForTheHashtagsWeAreClearlyOnSocialMediaTooMuch.
Highlights included: dinner at Nobu, famous for Chef Nobu Matsuhisa’s legendary Japanese/Peruvian fusion dishes, as well as for being co-founded by Robert DeNiro (“you talkin to me?” Yeah, you can feel lucky that you aren’t hearing this in person); wine-ding down at the Pendry Hotel’s rooftop pool; surfing in Encinitas; and dinner at Lena Craft in La Jolla – an authentically Mexican, family-run, farm-to-table restaurant that had a great list of wines from Valle de Guadalupe, our current wine region obsession. Phew, run-on sentence! Our week kind of felt like a run-on sentence to be honest. Lots crammed in and then the next thing we knew, we were waiting for our flight home at the airport location of Phil’s BBQ #WhoAreWe #Ribscouverites #SorryAgainHashtagsAreAddictive
Winecouverites out, Winediego 👊🤙✌
