encinitas: Movin Shoes evening run! - 08/22/11 05:26 AM

Over the last couple of weeks, I have been attending an event that is held every Monday evening at 6pm in Encinitas. It is the Movin Shoes evening run, and I found them through my association with the San Diego Tri Club. It is an organized run that hosts all levels of runners with 3 specific routes: a 3, a 4, and 6 mile run which is at your own pace followed by refreshments and a raffle drawing from the evenings sponsor.
My first time joining the group was a bit intimidating since I noticed so many serious runners there. … (1 comments)

encinitas: New coffee spot in Encinitas - 06/23/11 04:12 AM

Last week, my friend Moose Mau from Guaranteed Rate Home Mortgage brought coffee to our Wednesday morning Realtors meeting from his friend Eric Myers’ new coffee shop, the Lofty Bean inEncinitas. The coffee was great, so I decided to make a stop there while out and about today. I admit that I expected the same ole locally-owned, no frills coffee shop, but what I found was a whole lot more.
Upon entering, I was immediately greeted by two friendly baristas with winning smiles. Michelle and Megan made me feel right at home and suggested some of their unique concoctions. I was totally impressed by … (4 comments)

encinitas: Stadium Bar & Restaurant in Encinitas - 06/10/11 04:41 AM

Last Friday night, my wife Casey and I had a coupon from Coastal Coupon Magazine for the newStadium Bar & Restaurant in Encinitas, so we decided to check it out for the first time. For those who may remember, it is the site of the old Bullpen near the corner of Encinitas Blvd. and El Camino Real. I had heard about the change, but never had the opportunity to stop in for a bite to eat, until now.
Upon arrival, we were greeted by a very friendly hostess and seated right away. I was impressed by all of the huge TV’s they have set up, making it … (0 comments)

encinitas: North County Housing performance - 05/10/11 06:51 AM

Good news for homeowners in the north county. The HomeDex numbers for last month just came out, and the results were fabulous as a whole! It’s also great news for potential home buyers that have been on the fence and not sure about the direction of the housing market. Here’s a quick glimpse at the North San Diego County Association of Realtors HomeDex report. The numbers speak for themselves.
First, we’ll start with the median price for all single family homes, detached or attached in the North County of $393,500 in March 2011. That is a major increase from the … (0 comments)

encinitas: Callaway Golf unveils new Odyssey D.A.R.T. - 02/21/11 03:50 AM

On February 18th, Callaway Golf is introducing their new high-tech Odyssey D.A.R.T. line of putters to the retail market. The highly anticipated release was announced earlier this month, and if it's anything like the Odyssey putters of the past, it is sure to be a hit.
The D.A.R.T., which stands for Direction and Realignment Technology, is the next evolutionary step from its original Odyssey 2-Ball predecessor. The difference is that by using the dart-like pattern on the top of the putter head, golfers are able to align the center of the face to the ball much better.  With an improvement … (0 comments)

encinitas: Best Cuban Sandwich West of Havana! - 02/21/11 03:23 AM

On a warm Thursday night this past summer, I tasted the absolute best Cuban sandwich I have ever eaten in my life. No, I was not in Miami, or anywhere in Florida for that matter. I was in Oceanside, California at the Thursday night Farmers Market.
Anytime I see a Cuban sandwich on a menu, I am immediately skeptical. And for good reason, because most of the time I come away from the experience more than a bit disappointed. Now, let me preface by saying that I am not your average Cuban sandwich consumer. I am (in my opinion) a … (0 comments)

encinitas: My First Road Bike! - 02/21/11 03:15 AM

It was the end of summer, 2010. I was running along my usual route on the Pacific Coast Highway, when to my left about 20 road bikes came streaming by. Now, I'm not a fast runner, but it seemed like these bikes were going 60 miles per hour! What fun, I thought to myself as I continued my run. Knees aching from the consistent pounding of my feet hitting the asphalt, it dawned on me. Why am I not riding a bike? With that one question, my adventure began.
After getting home and going through my cool down and … (2 comments)
