Unexpected Late Saturday Breakfast with Craft Cocktails – Hopscotch – Fullerton, CA

On February 4, 2013, in Orange County, by satnightfoodies

Kim and I were finally able to get over to Hopscotch Tavern in downtown Fullerton. We wanted to try their craft cocktails but heard mixed reviews when it first opened. I am glad we waited because it gave them a chance to work through the “just opened” kinks. We walked in from the back parking […]

Dave & Buster's Gets a Makeover and Another Look from Me

On December 17, 2012, in Orange County, by Mrs SNFoodies

I can’t remember the last time I was in a Dave & Buster’s. I’m not a gamer so when trying to come up with a place to eat, D&B doesn’t usually come to mind. The entertainment/restaurant concept is in the process of updating its 60 stores to a sports bar concept. Ten stores have been […]

Finally a Neighborhood Bar in the OC – Wild Goose Tavern, Costa Mesa, CA

On November 9, 2012, in Orange County, Orange County, by Mrs SNFoodies

When I first got wind that a new bar was opening in Costa Mesa, I was not that interested. But then I heard that it would have good pub food, cocktails made with fresh ingredients, a pretty extensive whiskey collection as well as small-batch spirits, they had my attention! I anxiously awaited its opening day […]

On May 21, 2012, in Orange County, by Mrs SNFoodies

There is a secret dog beach in Newport that we take Martini and Mojito to on Saturdays when it is warm out. As we were driving there a few months ago, I was looking out the window and saw a sign for Eat Chow. I exclaimed to Jason “Eat Chow is opening another location!” But […]

Finally Umami comes to the OC – Umami Burger, Costa Mesa, CA

On April 27, 2012, in Orange County, by satnightfoodies

A couple years ago, Kim and I had the chance to try Umami Burger in Los Angeles. The only negative about Umami was that they were 50+ miles away from us. It’s worth the drive, but hard to do regularly when you are craving a really great burger. We have been waiting for their much-anticipated […]
