Scott's Bookmarks

Lately I've been writing my posts at work in Word, storing them on a little USB storage thingie (yes, that is the technical term!) and bringing it home to post and add links and pictures but tonight I'm writing this on "the fly" right into blogger. Yes, with the other way I could get fired - but it has helped with boosting the number of posts per week! I imagine some long time readers were pretty flabbergasted to find new posts on a couple of consecutive nights!

And from website stats, I find that my number of unique hits per day has doubled to 6! So, welcome everyone! When I started this, it was sort of a "me too" type thing as a couple of other San Diego blogs had started up.

I guess it still it.

Me too.
With no clear plan tonight and no posts ready to go I was just going to post a cheese curd follow-up but then I saw a few bookmarks of area restaurants in a favorites folder (of course called San Diego Stuff) and thought I would just toss these out. These are places that must have sounded interesting - so I had saved a link - but I have not yet been to any of these:

Anyone been?

And that cheese curd follow-up.
The website for Real California Cheese has a search section where you can search for different types of cheese by area. Here they list the cheese curds I talked about - Chedder Curds "Squeakers" - a very good name for them! One place has them - in the CA Central Valley region.

Joey's Smokin' BBQ
Picked a slab up last night, after a little BBQ discussion on Chowhound. I couldn't resist! Yum! $20 gets you a full slab of baby backs, with beans (very good, nice and sweet), slaw (not too creamy) and corn bread muffins. Enough to share, but I was hungry enough I could have gone for more. A poster on Chowhound mentioned that a 3rd location was planned in Poway - I asked about that and the guy behind the counter said no, the deal fell through.

--Great fish and chips. Sheperds Pie is my fav. They have a lot of great beer that's hard to find.

--One of the best places to eat in San Diego. I have not been there for a long time though and it may have changed.

--My wife is a chef and thinks this is one killer place to eat. I have not been there for food though. Only drinks at the bar. Cool looking place.

I do love Shakespeare's. They have one of the best Bloody Mary's and some tasty food. I haven't heard of the other places, but they're now on my list to check out!
