Meet the new Rubio’s Coastal Grill

Sangira and local beer is now available at Rubio's Coastal Grill
Every area of the country has its patron food. Seattle has teriyaki bowls, Kansas City has barbecue, and Southern California has fish tacos. This delicious deceptively simple staple became something big to all of us here, thanks mostly to Rubio’s. This casual dining restaurant took the surfers’ favorite street taco from south of the border and brought it to the rest of us.

At a blogger event earlier this month, Busy Bee Blogger got to see the newest menu items and a peek at the NEW Rubio’s Coastal Grill. All overseen and prepared by the main man himself – Ralph Rubio.

Anthony Bourdain Loves His In-N-Out Just Watch

Anthony Bourdain and BusyBeeBlogger

As every good southern Californian knows, it’s all about the In-N-Out. I do not care if you are on the new paleo, juicing, all vegan diet. If you are from southern California, you have a weak spot, for the delectable goodness that is the Double Double.

RELATED – When Anthony Bourdain Met Busy Bee Blogger

Even the original New York hipster (he is so going to hate that I said that), chef, writer, and glob trotting eater Anthony Bourdain has a thing or two to say about it. In a video posted on Eater he explains that this is the first place he stops on his trips to L.A. (As someone who moved out of state briefly, I have to agree with Bourdain on this one. One of the first places I loved hitting up was either In-N-Out or a taco stand. SoCal in a biteful.) He also says that there is a certain sophistication about having a bag full of burgers from In-N-Out versus another fast food restaurant. A type of subtle head nod from those who know, not a look of disgust for a greasy bag of patties and fries.

Del Mar Food Truck Festival

Let’s talk southern California food trucks. When I worked construction, don’t laugh, we used to call them roach coaches with love of course. BUt these kitchens on wheels have taken off and moved beyond basic sandwiches and burritos. Lobster, Italian dishes, and even vegan organic meals are coming off of these trucks. They have come a long way baby.

Today, November 22, 2014, the Del Mar Fair Grounds is hosting the Fall Food Truck Festival. You can come in to play the ponies and enjoy the food trucks all in the same place today! Can you say win? Food trucks of all stripes are coming down to show off what they have to offer.

Tiny Hamster Is Back with Friends For Thanksgiving

tiny hamster and his friends sit down to Thanksgiving dinner.  Wearing their best pilgrim hats, the friends enjoy a turkey dinner until there just is not any more.  How cute are they?

There is something new this year to be thankful for. Tiny Hamster is back and he brought friends for a Thanksgiving feast! I don’t care if you’re from Southern California or Kansas City, this video of Tiny Hamster  eating Thanksgiving dinner with his friends, including a very fluffy bunny, gives me the biggest smile of the day.  There is sure to be a Pinterest tutorial on how to make pilgrim hats for hamsters very soon thanks to this video.

HelloDenizen has done a great job with their Tiny Hamster videos. Tiny Hamster has already had his own pizza party, a birthday for his little friend, and even gone against the hot dog eating champ, but this one may be the sweetest of the videos. I did have to wonder, is that what I look like when I sit down with Dad Bee and have Thanksgiving? SHOVING slices of pie into my face until I just cannot hold anymore, maybe just one scoop of potatoes… with gravy. Please.

Yes this is what we look like at Thanksgiving dinner. We just do not want to admit it. Instead of hanging our heads in shame, we can watch a little furry party do what we do every and giggle.
