I really enjoyed the media preview of Rooftop Cinema Club, a rooftop “theatre” atop of the Manchester Grand Hyatt San Diego. It’s such a pretty setup and the views are amazing.
I got to watch a classic movie, “Grease,” a very fun sing-along! The set-up includes snuggling under the stars in comfortable deck chairs (blankets are so cozy!) and watching the movie while listening with wireless headphones.
Rooftop cinema season kicks off this week and continues throughout the summer.
The movies are always iconic films that people know and love. Upcoming shows include Top Gun, Dirty Dancing, Bohemian Rhapsody and The Greatest Showman, among others.
Valentine’s Day is coming up! Stumped on what to do? I’ve got some great ideas on how to spend Valentine’s Day with your sweetheart.
Since I’m a writer for San Diego Family Magazine, I had the opportunity today to share some Valentine’s Day date tips for couples and families with Renee Nelson at ABC 10News during a FacebookLive. We talked about specific places to go in San Diego; things to do on a budget and to splurge; ways to keep love sizzling, and more.
Get more Valentine’s Day ideas in the February issue of San Diego Family Magazine, which is available for free at Albertsons, Ralphs, Party City and local libraries, as well as online.
Here are some behind the scenes photos from the shoot.
Restaurant Week is always exciting. It’s a great chance to try new restaurants, sample new foods and get outside the usual food routines we all have. While there’s nothing wrong with visiting a favorite dinner spot or a having a certain place to grab dessert, it’s interesting to check out new restaurants and nibble a few new dishes.

My husband joined me to sample lots of tasty foods and drinks. Some of our faves? The sausage from Sausage & Meat; the pork dish garnished with watermelon from Parq Restaurant; and the s’mores dessert from Park Hyatt Aviara.
Despite the hot weather, the launch was great! From chilled gazpacho to sips of wine, it was easy to cool down and savor the flavors.
