Encinitas Wine Shops - The 3rd Corner  
Looking for a good wine shop in Encinitas with a restaurant combination? The 3rd Corner Wine Shop and Bistro in Encinitas is a delightful place to dine, and with the size of the crowd last night, a very popular one.

ENCINITAS ORCHIDS  

 
Encinitas is known for beautiful flowers in its nurseries, gardens and at retail and whole sale growers.
This beauty was one of many I spied at an orchid nursery in Encinitas just off the freeway.
Of course if you want a gorgeous orchid arrangement, I would recommend ENCINITAS ORCHIDS owned and created by my friend Don Doerfler.

Jamroc 101 Caribbean Grill Offers Terrific Jamaican Cuisine in the Encinitas Restaurant Community  
Looking for something different in the Encinitas restaurants? Jamroc 101 Caribbean Grill offers terrific Jamaican cuisine in Encinitas around the corner from Moonlight Beach. 
I drive by Jamroc frequently. I hear great things about it all the time. But for one reason or another I never dined there...until last night. 
It was a real treat. And I wish I had done myself a favor of visiting before this. 

The minute you walk in the door you KNOW this is a Jamaican eatery - the smells, the … (5 comments)

There is always something going on at Queen Eileen's, Encinitas's BEST gift shop in the heart of downtown Encinitas on the Coast Road. 
Yesterday it was the new arrival of a shipment of 8000+ jewelry items from Bali, just off the plane and through customs.

encinitas business: Encinitas Orchids – An Interview with the Creator and Owner, Don Doerfler, in Encinitas CA 92024 - 03/07/10 03:22 PM
 Encinitas Orchids was born from a live-long love of flowers, a keen sense of design, a creative and artistic sensibility, and a bit of serendipity - neighbors and friends asking for creations as gifts. 
The business just sorta happened - but listen to the video to hear more. 
Don Doerfler comes by his creative, artistic talents naturally. How can one avoid it, with both parents being animators - his mother worked for Disney and his father worked for Warner - and a grandmother, Florence Davis, with a well-established reputation in the San Diego art community as an Impressionist and Plein Air … (10 comments)

Encinitas Sandwich Shops - Froots in Encinitas California 92024
 
I am not a fast food fan. But a good sandwich shop with great food and value strikes a chord with this foodie.

encinitas business: An Empty Building is a Sad Sight Sometimes - But The Andrews Gallery Lives on in San Diego - 02/25/10 11:20 AM
The Andrews Gallery in Leucadia (Encinitas) recently moved to new digs downtown. It is sad to see the Gallery, and director/owner Drew Snyder, leave the area. 

Andrews Gallery added so much to the artistic community in Encinitas and we will miss them. From their wonderful art exhibits, musician, and art openings, Andrews Gallery made a significant mark that will not be soon forgotten. 
And it's sad to see the building standing empty once again.
But the move for Andrews Gallery is a very good one - they are now housed in the heart of Little Italy in San Diego, a … (9 comments)

encinitas business: Encinitas Orchids - Living Orchid Arrangements in Encinitas CA 92024 - 02/07/10 04:00 AM
Don Doerfler is a master at creating living orchid arrangements. I know, because I met him the other day and saw for myself. His business, Encinitas Orchids, is based at his home in Encinitas, and a visit to his showroom is a visual treat.
Not only are the orchids spectacular, but the vessels used to create the living orchid arrangements (e.g., antique Chinese wood boxes, ceramics) add to their beauty. 

And Don's talent for creative use of color and visual imagery as an artist is immediately obvious in the stunning living orchid arrangements he creates. 
The orchids will generally last … (8 comments)

A Video Tour on the Historic Coast Highway 101 Through Leucadia (Encinitas) California

Leucadia is a funky, laid-back beach town just south of Carlsbad on the North San Diego County coast, and one of my favorite communities.
Leucadia has a long surfing history, and as a seaside community retains much of the feel from days gone by - which most people like about the community.
This town is part of Encinitas but with a different feel and look. You won't find high end shopping here, nor 5 star dining (but check out Le Papagayo and Auggie's House of Crab for … (6 comments)

encinitas business: Encinitas Sushi Restaurants - Blue Fin Sushi Restaurant in Encinitas California - 09/14/09 04:15 AM
If you are seeking a great Encinitas sushi restaurant, Blue Fin Sushi in Encinitas California fits the bill in my book. 

Blue Fin Sushi Restaurant is on the east side of El Camino Real in the shopping corridor just north of Encinitas Boulevard. The signage is, well, blue, so you can't miss it, despite being in a strip mall along with other restaurants and a variety of stores. Blue Fin Sushi was recommended to me some time ago and having been there several times now it's easy to see why this place is so popular. While you can walk in … (8 comments)
