Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens: A Gemstone in the Heart of EscondidoFeatured

Stone Brewery Experience

This past weekend, I took the train down to San Diego to visit my boyfriend. On Saturday, we decided to check out Stone Brewing World Bistro and Gardens in Escondido since it received thousands of 5 star reviews.

I thought to myself “Is this brewery really worth the hype?”

The answer is a sound YES!

The Stone Brewing World Bistro and Gardens in Escondido, is one of the largest breweries in all of southern California, and is Stone’s headquarters.

When we arrived, we were shocked by how big the brewery was. The walkway from the parking lot to the brewery was mystical as it was covered in ivys and other green plants. The lobby was castle like in nature with its majestic brown doors and high ceilings. Immediately to the left, was a gift shop selling t-shirts, jackets, cups, and other Stone Brewery souvenirs.

When we arrived at 4:45 pm on Saturday, we were told that there was a 25 minute wait for a table.

As one of the most stunning and historical breweries in all of California, it’s no surprise that Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens is packed from open to close on a daily basis. If you don’t want to wait for a table or have limited time, I highly recommend you reserve a table online.

For us, it was perfectly fine because we went to the open bar and got some drinks. I got a glass of wine and Juan got the scorpion beer. With our drinks in our hands, we explored the brewery and the infamous world garden.

Whatever your preference is, you can choose to sit indoors or outdoors, both of which are fabulous choices. The outside seating, however, is slightly more marvelous because it’s located in the beautiful garden. The outdoor area features 2 outdoor mini bars, tons of seating options, a small trail, beautiful pond, games for kids, and a 1 acre organic farm. It’s honestly the perfect setting to get all your loved ones together to hang out and relax. With over 35 specialty types of beers and an extensive wine list, there is something for everyone!

Last but not least, Stone Brewing World Bistro and Gardens in Escondido offers tours of their brewing facility and packaging area. For just $8 per adult, you will get a close look at the machines, learn the ins and outs of the beer making process, and taste several specialty beers on tap!

Outfit Details

Jacket: CHILLY OUT BLACK AND WHITE GLEN PLAID LONG COAT

The perfect coat to spice up any outfit. Not only is it soft, but it looks even more stunning in person. FYI, the jacket is more of a fashion piece and may not be ideal for very cold weather.

Booties: REECE BLACK SUEDE BOOTIES

I actually bought my booties from Nordstrom last year but they sold out due to popular demand. I have linked the Reece Black Suede bootie, which is very similar.

Purse: TORY BURCH

Unfortunately, my bag was a limited edition and has sold out. However, I have linked to the Tory Burch cross body purses page.

Visiting Boulder Bay Park at Big BearFeatured

Boulder Bay Park

First of all, I would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year with all your loved ones. This year went by too fast, and I can’t wait for what 2019 has in store for both you and me! 

This past weekend, I went to Big Bear with some of my friends that I’ve known since high school. Out of the blue, we suddenly had the urge to see the snow and experience “winter,” something Californians never get to experience.

It had been years since I last been to the snow, and I guess I wanted an excuse to wear my Columbia puffer jacket and beanie. After some last minute planning, we set off to Big Bear on Saturday morning.

Since it was the weekend before Christmas, there was some traffic on the way there; however, it was expected.

We decided that our first stop would be Boulder Bay Park, a quaint and beautiful park located a few miles before the infamous village.

The drive from the San Fernando valley to Boulder Bay park took approximately 2.5 hours. During the entire drive up the mountain road, we saw no snow!

It wasn’t until we reached Boulder Bay park that we started to see some snow…and my was it beautiful! The weather outside was a stunning 55 degrees, and I wore a long sleeve, thin sweater, jeans, and sneakers (Snow attire, i know).

Due to the drought, the lake at Boulder Bay park receded so low that most of the docks were sitting on dirt.

On the plus side, there was a nice dirt path straight to the middle of the bay. Naturally, my friends and I took advantage of the low water level and walked on over to the magnificent boulders.

We struggled at first to find a safe and way up the rocks. After some time, we found a path to the top, and boy was the view amazing.

Boulder Bay Park is a place you must visit if you venture out to Big Bear. With its lush and green grass, picnic tables, and paved walking paths, what’s not to love! The park’s parking lot is small and fills up fast; however, there are lots of free parking on the street right along the park.

I highly recommend that you spend an hour or two to walk around the park and relax before continuing your way to the village.

Hopefully by Spring time, the lake will rise to its proper levels so people can kayak or fish in the lake.

Have you ever been to Boulder Bay Park? What do you like or dislike most about it?
