Extraordinary and extra

Short entry.

Not much to write about this week. Typically our nightly meals at home are nothing worthy of blogging about. We did have a delicious afternoon lunch at Extraordinary Desserts in San Diego (Union Street location) with my in-laws. All of us have a love of chocolate and sweetness so it was a perfect place to visit.

I had my camera with me but I forgot to use it. But we each had a scrumptious piece of cake. And now we are fat.

Is anyone going to any of the events surrounding the San Diego Bay Wine and Food Festival (I’ve heard it’s a festivas for the rest of us, but I’ll have to get back to you on that). I have a single ticket to the “Grand Event” on Saturday that I was lucky enough to land from one of the sponsors as a promo. It’s a slightly staggering $85 otherwise a person. So far my wife isn’t interested enough for that (although any of us would easily spend that on a dinner out) so it looks like I’ll be going solo. If no other area bloggers are going I’ll be sure to come back with a full report.

Overall, it seems that the emphasis is more on wine than food - taste wine from over 100 wineries! Mouth watering cuisine from San Diego's finest restaurants! Gourmet food companies and culinary exhibits! They do list restaurants like Region and Cafe Cerise, El Bizcocho, Roppongi, Soleil @ K and over 30 others.

I'd like to go, but don't have tickets yet. I checked out the event schedule on their website, but they still haven't announced anything for the Wednesday and Thursday dinners. Wondering when they are planning on updating the site, seeing that it is only 3 days away. Oh, I just found it listed under the Wine Dinners link

Please report back and let us know how the Grand Event is--you can't pass up a free ticket!

Extraordinary Desserts #2. Lovely place, isn't it? Perfect for sweet tooths and savory tooths as well...
