Scottsdale, Arizona - Brush Bar

What a fun evening! Went to TheBrushBar. Painting with a glass of wine. Many thanks to Tiffany for introducing me to this fun evening. Here are the Works of Art created tonight.

Scottsdale, Arizona - Dos Gringos

I am on my way to The Brush Bar and stopped by Dos gringos for a quick meal. I forgot how great nachos and a margarita taste on a hit summer afternoon in Phoenix, er Scottsdale.

Phoenix, Arizona - Julia Baker Confections

I stopped by the Apple store at the Biltmore Fashion Center on Camelback Road for a class. After the class, I decided to take a walk through the shops.

I was shocked, thrilled, amazed...and more... when I looked in the window of "Julia Baker Confections".  I was instantly in Paris.  The shop is just delightful.

I didn't know where to start looking. Chocolates, beautiful chocolates.  And wonderful packaging.

San Diego, California - Jasmine Seafood Restaurant

Jasmine is (obviously) a Chinese restaurant in San Diego.  The plan was to get a large table and enjoy the Dim Sum.  We got to the restaurant about 10:45 in the morning and as we left, I see why that decision was made.  By the time we left, there was a line out the door waiting for a seat. That is GREAT recommendation. I made sure that I put a reference on Yelp and TripAdvisor.  I liked it and would go again.  (Great and entertaining company too, which added to the experience.)

San Diego, California - Bistro Sixty

Bistro Sixty is a neighborhood cafe that started as a neighborhood bakery selling wholesale desserts.  A few tables were added to the front, and then the full restaurant setting grew in the space, then a patio seating area was created.  There is music most nights.  It was a little loud if you wanted to chat, but great if you wanted to listen and eat and drink a little wine.
