Carnita's Snack Shack is the pork capital of Embarcadero North

San Diego is one of the few places where culture shock is actually encouraged and appreciated, making the city our favorite spot to visit in the lower 48 states. Last year, we made a stop at San Diego’s very own Carnita's Snack Shack in the trendy North Park neighborhood for that fast-casual porkhouse experience. This year, while running the streets for Independence Day, we discovered that Carnita's expanded to the city's Embarcadero North waterfront zone. Hungry for all things pork, we zipped over to chat it up with Chef Hanis Cavin to learn about his successful foodie venture.

When it comes to getting on the water, there isn't a more thrilling way to discover the joys of staying afloat than hopping on the newest GP 1800 WaveRunner from Yamaha. While checked in at The Ritz Carlton on Lake Oconee, we were lured to the shores by the presence of water Pokemon, but ended up more pleased by sights of Yamaha's 2017 line of personal watercraft.

The Pearl Hotel is the jewel of San Diego

Right after touching down in sunny San Diego, we immediately hit the ground running to search for a spot to call home-base. Nestled in Point Loma, The Pearl Hotel truly encompasses the easy-going lifestyle of Southern California. Infused with an authentically hip vibe that will make leaving harder than solving an algebraic math problem, The Pearl Hotel is near to everything inherently San Diego. The vintage mid-century-modern boutique hotel features 23 rooms that overlook a positively prime and pristine saltwater pool. In addition to it's awesome shag lounge area, the property also boasts a beautifully decorated in-house restaurant and bar that is always popping with patrons. Aptly called “EAT at The Pearl”, this eatery features California Coastal cuisine, prompt table service, and award-winning interior design.

Unreal rollerblading skills will blow your mind50s

Unreal rollerblading skills will blow your mind

Blading has, and always will be a viable mode of transportation. For those of us who dig the aggressive aspect of the sport, it’s nice to know that companies like Rollerblade have our feet covered. Reminiscent of the notorious Star Wars henchmen, the Solo Trooper from Rollerblade incorporates a pristine white composition that emanates a clean aesthetic for all skill levels. The sole and negative plates are formed with an unparalleled slick plastic compound that makes for a most dope time on rails and ledges alike. To make things even better, the included Blank frames offer a huge H-block for buttery groove tricks. The boot itself is sturdy, yet allows flex where you need it the most. The easy-to-tighten Velcro straps were a great change to the Solo boot, and we hope it becomes the new standard in adjusting comfort levels while rolling.
