This is the Southern Style Bloody Mary at Baptiste and Bottle’s new brunch. It has, amongst other things, a deviled egg, pickled onions, giant celery, candied bacon, hush puppies, green beans, jumbo shrimp, and more.
Yeah, I think it’s time for brunch. 🍅

Wine pairing dinners? So last year. I tried a preview of the beer pairing dinner at Forbidden Root and it was everything. We sampled oysters and IPAs, pickled beets with beer beer, and even a donut with a strawberry and basil hefeweizen. The first monthly dinner is tonight and if you don’t make it, get there for the next one for sure. 🍺🍴

Still obsessed with the food I ate in Mexico while on Joco Cruise. This is Pozole, a traditional Mexican soup made with dried maize (also know a hominy), pork and veggies. So good! 🥣

Yesterday, the eighth #JocoCruise finished it’s run. I’m having a hard time putting into words just how amazing this experience was. Luckily, I have pictures on Instagram to do just that! 😃
What I will say, though, is this was a gathering of geeks and nerds (so my people) done in a way I’ve never experienced before. I got to:
🔸 💁🏻‍♂️ Meet people from around the world and talk about movies and TV and games and robots and adorable animals and anything else they wanted to geek out over.
🔹 🇲🇽 Travel Mexico, see new sights and cities like La Paz and Loreto and eat so much great food there. 🔸 🎶 Hear live music from some incredible performers, including @realaimeemann, @quellechrist, @mc_frontalot, @paulandstorm, @molly23, @jimboggia and the cruise’s namesake: Mr. @RealJonathanCoulton.
🔹 🎤 Watch @bamboofle do standup in front of 20 people, tell @johnhodgman that TV shows are made better when he’s on them, speak with @PatrickRothfuss about how much I absolutely was floored by his books, get writing advice from @jscalzi, craft with @bonniegrrl, listen to live podcasts with @travismcelroy and @murrymcelroy and have an elevator chat about nothing with @itswilwheaton. Because of course.
🔸 🎧 Be introduced to the brilliance of @jeanniegrigio and @artrapmike. Both who I’d never heard but you should check out. Because, again, they’re brilliant.
🔹 🎲 Play test new board games, like @diceborn_heroes, and choose from a wall of 700 other games. Hot damn that’s a lot of games.
🔸 📖 Do so much reading and relaxing it’s not funny.
🔹 👨🏻‍🏫 Learn from others at guest run events (called “The Shadow Cruise”), including how to pick locks, train a service dog, the intensity of black holes and how to become a better photographer.
🔸 🏖 Just be in my element on a fun vacation.
Full video and blog post to come, but I wanted to share a few quick memories from the trip right here. Scroll through and enjoy.

Welcome to the legendary Fancy Pants Parade! This is an annual tradition on the Joco Cruise, based off a catchy song, “Mr. Fancy Pants,” by Mr. Jonathan Coulton. It’s a competition for whoever has the best pants on the ship! This year it was judged by a taco-eating Wil Wheaton and he chose... wisely. 
As the song says: There can be only one who’s “best in terms of pants!” ✨👖✨

We found a last minute bonkers Air BnB, literally built into the side of a tree. Upside, we’re living in a treehouse. Downside, it’s right underneath the flight path of every single plane. Although, honestly, it seems like all of San Diego is. ✈️
