Hooray! Long weekend for everyone! Labor day is one of my favorite holidays because it indicates the end of tourist season here in our beach community. Don’t get me wrong, I completely understand why people flock here, to San Diego, but once labor day rolls around the parking gets a little easier, the sidewalks get less crowded and the general feel becomes less “vacation party” and more “mellow beach town”. September has long been my favorite month here because the weather is still perfect and summery, and while the rest of the country is busting out their boots and sweaters, we’re still in our tanks and flip flops (ok, the flip flops are year round)
This weekend we’re up to our usual business: a little pool action, a little BBQ action, and lots of bloody marys. I’m also testing out this sweet watermelon cocktail which is pureed watermelon, champagne and lime juice! Delish and Summery!!
We also, have a puppy house guest this weekend, Koda, who has been terrorizing our poor dogs (all in good fun) He’s been learning A. what a swimming pool is and B. How to swim. Looking forward to dusting off the poolside TV for some college football and spending some time with our great friends. Hope you all are having fun with friends and family this weekend!
NOTE/TIP: My friend had not yet arrived with the Zing Zang (the only truly awesome bloody mary mix) but the key to making a sub-par bloody mary mix taste awesome is a splash of Guinness! (not pictured) Try it, you’ll love it
