New Restaurant in Town


My husband and I tried the new restaurant that opened on the corner of Grand and Roosevelt Street here in Carlsbad.  So good!  Within walking distance from the Pelican Cove Inn.
This wheat pasta dish I had was terrific!  Very flavorful and light.  The pistachio gelato was a great ending to the meal.  Check it out next time you are in town!  www.cicciottis.com

The Del Mar Fair opens on Friday June 3rd and runs until July 4th.  This is such a fun event.  Farm animals, sinful fair food (love the Indian Fry Bread!!), grand stand events and so much more!  Plan to stay at Pelican Cove and you can take the Coaster to the Solana Beach train station.  There is a free shuttle that runs between the train station and the fair grounds.  Great way to go to avoid dealing with traffic. They also do a great fireworks show on the 4th.  Hope to see you there!! www.sdfair.com
