Ever on the quest for status, I am taking my girlfriend to San Diego for a week later this year. With some creative routing we will be taking four flights each way, so it’ll go a decent way in making sure I maintain my Diamond Medallion Status with Delta.
I also plan to take advantage of Citi Prestige’s 4th Night Free benefit to book my stay at the Hyatt Regency near Sea World. This will help me maintain my status with Hyatt as well as help me take advantage of their current promotion! Since all five nights are paid for, I’ll get points both from the initial stay as well as from the promotion.
I will also be routing us through DFW to take advantage of the Centurion Lounge there! Nothing like a free gourmet meal! 😀
I am a sucker for good BBQ, and Fahrenheit 250 didn’t disappoint! I opted for jerk chicken with brisket chili and cheese grits. The grits weren’t runny (yay!), and everything had a wonderful kick to it! These folks know what they’re doing, for sure. They also have a decent selection of beers on tap – be sure to be there for happy hour!
After a productive week, the team felt a night at an Irish pub was in order. With an expansive selection of whiskies and beers, it was an excellent decision! I opted for a Reuben with a fried egg, and their soup of the day: a turkey meatball in a curry sauce akin to that of butter chicken!
The hat opted for Shepherd’s Pie – also with a fried egg! It was an excellent choice from what I was told! Our server, responsible for recommending the inclusion of egg with our entrees, certainly earned her tip – she knew the menu like the back of her hand, and was happy to suggest both libations and savories.
