A brand new bowling center named Bowlero opened up near my home and I decided to go check it out. There was another bowling center that used to be here that I had gone to several times. The grand opening gave me a chance to check out everything out. The bowling center was newly renovated. It takes the traditional bowling alley and gives it a fresh cool modern feel.
Brand new flat screens down every bowling alley will play music videos, cartoons and classic family film. While we were there the screens played different scenes from the minions movies. It felt like the minions were cheering me on as I bowled. The new bowling center offers conformable soft couch like seating. With two new sports bars and an arcade with a ton of renovated games there is something fun for everyone.
At the Grand Opening there was a special guest NFL super star and former San Diego Charger Shawne Merriman, a.k.a. “LightOut” just hanging out and enjoying his time bowling. There was even a raffle with a ton of Autographed items from Shawne Merriman. I had such a great time checking out Bowlero in Chula Vista. I forgot how much fun it is to bowl, Can not wait to go back.
I have never celebrated Mardi Gras before but I heard there was an awesome food and drinks tour and was all in. The Mardi Gras Beads, Bites and Booze trip took place in Downtown San Diego. Once equipped with your ticket and of course colorful beads you were left to take a self guided walking food trip.
Each place was decked out with different Mardi Gras decor to get everyone in the spirit. Each place offered a delicious bite and an accompanying drink. We got a nice work out to burn some of that food that was consumed by visiting different places. Many of the places had a Mardi Gras inspired dishes. From New Orleans, Indian, Mexican, American and cuban the variety in the bites and drinks meant there was something for everyone. I love all the different vibes and decor from all the different restaurants and bars.
Here are some of the delicious food we got to sample. This is from the first stop where you pick up your ticket. This was from Florent in Downtown, San Diego. Since it was Mardi Gras inspired we had to start off with jambalaya. This may seem like just rice, but man did it have a kick to it. The ambiance here was also exciting as the entrance had a New Orleans style retro band playing live music. The next place is the newest addition to downtown called Havana 1920. Lots of colorful ambiance with mismatching furniture. This place had the option of trying a Spinach and cheese empanada, Shrimp Taco, and a cuban sandwich. Wow the sandwich was delicious and different than most sandwiches. The crust was not airy and had this nice crisp. Inside was pulled pork and ham which was an interesting combination topped with mustard, pickles, and cheese. It was accompanied with a cuba libre made with real sugar Mexican coke. At the Tin Roof they had Shrimp Po’boys. The sandwiches had a bit of a kick to them with those spices. The ambience was the best here. Live music playing lots of popular 2000 songs. There was even some what healthy bites with these pancetta balsamic brussels sprouts. These were delicious, nice and crispy with lots of flavor. There was some interesting drinks to try here that was chai tea flavored alcohol. This was one of the best stops because I love dessert. This is butterscotch pudding from Spikes. At first I was not even going to grab any because I thought it was flan. I’m glad I did it was delicious and smooth creamy bottom topped with salted butterscotch. Wow I was literally stuffed by the end of the day. I did not even eat anything after that. There was also a secret party afterwards with drinks if you visited 10 locations or more, but honestly we were tired and deep in food coma. Had a ton of fun trying out this event for the first time. I can not believe we went to all the stops but one.
