An opportunity fell into my lap a few weeks ago that had me practically jumping for joy. I stayed pretty mum about it, not telling anyone other than FH, for fear that it wouldn’t happen.

Now that it has, I wanted to share the news with you. Normally, I might not post something about this here. I always feel awkward with self-promotion. But in this case, since future opportunities depends on maintaining an interested audience, I hope you will check out my first published article in San Diego Magazine, and will continue to check out future pieces I may write.

And lookie here, you get to learn my real name too. ;-)

    Congrats on the article (fab photos too!)! Now I want to check this place out! Great deals there…

      Yes, you should check them out! I’ve been there for dinner several times, but only recently went for lunch. I was amazed by the cheap prices and wanted to order the whole menu! I’m going to do a post on this blog too, detailing some more of the food and pics of the menu. It should be up later this week.

    How exciting! I subscribe to SD Magazine too…congratulations! can’t wait to read about other restaurants you will write about :-)

    • Kirbie replied: — August 22nd, 2011 @ 6:08 pm

      There’s a lot of places I eat at that don’t end up on my blog for whatever reason and fit the theme of the Everyday Eats section of SD Magazine, so hopefully I will be providing new/separate material for the magazine and blog so there is a reason to read both. =)
