      Blanca in Solana?!?!

      Sledge, you might want to pull your calendar out from August 2011 and set it to 2014..

      Probably too busy getting your airline tixs from PSA, getting a new rotary 'Princess' phone, changing the avocado fridge to a 'Gold' tone to match the shag carpet and gussying up that Pacer. .

        OOPS.... shows how long it's been, must be the heat doing a number on my gray matter. I'll jump in my Pacer and put the AC on to cool down!

              ...makes me thing of Neil Young

              "Keep me searching for a Harvest Gold..."

              Thanks for the parade of images... "rotary Princess phone"... "avocado fridge"... "shag carpet" .... "a Pacer"....

              The whole collage made my brain melt down for a few minutes.

          1. Cucina Enoteca in Flower Hill is the place to be. Sea & Smoke has a great patio, but I'm not a fan of the food.

            Also if you haven't been since the remodel, the Pony Room at Rancho Valencia is worth visiting for happy hour.

              Good call Wank on Sea & Smoke..

              I'm a regular at the Pony Room...love love love this place!

            2. You might also want to check out El Agave in the Del Mar Plaza. It is nicer than their Old Town Location and you can show the North County cougs a thing or two while getting your marg fix.

                  I didn't know El Agave went into Del Mar Plaza..

                  I've seen those coug's in North County...their too dumb to teach them any of my moves...hee hee

                2. Probably doesn't need to be said, but, stop by Bully's for the obligatory cocktail or two.

                    Doesn't need to be said at all. .
                    I've been a Bully's chica for many years and miss my LJ locale but Del Mar is always second best.

                    1. re: deckape

                      I was going to suggest Bully's and then realized I didn't know if it was even open anymore so I better google it.

                      I don't see Patty Melt Tips on the menu though (in lieu of rib tips)

                      1. re: MrKrispy

                        I got a 'Tip' for you Krispy,
                        You should just stick to recommending T&A bar's with that Double Double in the greater Sports Arena area. .
                        ; )

                        But I do LOVE the Patty Melt Tip idea!!

                    2. Snooze in Del Mar Highlands for breakfast/brunch

                        Hey D!
                        Love Chinos and will swing by for veggies but no strawberries for me..never liked them. :(

                        We're hitting up Belly Up and that will probably mean a late night Roberto's taco shop run in Solana Beach..
                        I just hope the Oyster bar at the Fish Market isn't too long of a wait with campers. .
                        Room service baby for breakfast..
