A friend recently told me that Taka-O is her favorite Japanese restaurant. I had been wanting to try it, so that night Jeff and I sat at the sushi bar…and were very disappointed.
I remember my grandmother’s cooking. Every Sunday we’d sit at her table and eat hearty, warm delicious meals. Pot roast with potatoes, ham with stewed tomatoes, lima beans and corn bread…and don’t get me started on her red velvet cake! Every once in a while, you just need some good, old fashioned comfort food. I […]
I love being able to walk a few blocks to hear great blues. Last night I did just that! I walked the 5 blocks from my house to Iva Lee’s, one of my favorite San Clemente establishments. After a delicious Creole inspired meal, I sat in the bar and listened to the Fremonts, modern purveyors […]

Last Friday there were […]

Technically speaking, there is no trail or ridge officially named The Roller Coaster, but if there was, this would be it. This is a great double-track trail with hills that will get your heart pumping. I like to hike this after work most Wednesdays, and enjoy the ocean breezes, the sweeping coastal and mountain views […]
It was a beautiful, clear day for the 23rd Annual San Clemente Seafest. The event included a battle for the best chowder, a surf contest, an arts and crafts exhibit and a business expo. My favorite parts were the chowder cook-off and the surf contest…oh, yeah, and of course, Captain Jack Sparrow.
Okay, is this too good to be true? No corkage fee, free lunches at Ole’s Tavern on Sundays during football season AND fresh, delicious food? Well it is true…at Cafe 207.
