Your travels to and through San Diego just got that much better, as there’s a new airport lounge now doing its thing at the airport. Airspace Lounge is a pay-to-play rest and relaxation zone for any and all travelers, so there’s no need to be a frequent flyer or hold some kind of special credit card to gain entry—although those with an American Express Platinum Card can visit for free.

The new lounge does its thing between Terminal 2 East and West at San Diego International Airport, and its location should be convenient for those traveling with as many as 12 different airlines.

A New List of America's Top 10 Zoos Needs Some (Minor) Adjustments

June 5, 2014 at 5:45 PM | by | Comment (1)

Apparently USA Today owns something called 10Best. We don't know much about 10Best, except that it seems to publish travel-related Top 10 lists and its Twitter profile goes back to 2008. The division - we suppose it counts as a media division - also just published a list of the U.S.'s top 10 zoos.

That list, which was the result of four weeks of online voting and which we've reproduced below, is in a very precise sense obviously and straightforwardly incorrect.

Olympic Skier Bode Miller Is Renting Out His Yacht on AirBNB

March 27, 2014 at 11:16 AM | by | Comments (0)

Olympic skier Bode Miller, who added a bronze medal in Sochi to his pile of hardware, has just put his yacht up on AirBnb. The yacht, which can sleep up to 12 people, is currently docked in San Diego harbor. It goes for $3K a night, with a minimum of three nights. If you're going to get 12 people in there for three nights, it works out to $750 each, which is comparable with a penthouse room in a luxury hotel.

As for amenities? The ad lists a full kitchen, three master bedrooms and two 'bunk rooms,' an open upper deck, and use of a dinghy and a Sea-Doo. There's also the benefit of saying you slept on the same bed as one of America's most decorated Winter Olympians, natch.

Plan a Road Trip to Eat Taco Bell's 'Waffle Taco' in One of Four US Trial Cities

August 9, 2013 at 4:56 PM | by | Comments (0)

Think you've tried a fair share of weird fast food menu items? Think again, as Taco Bell continues to up the ante with their waffle taco. No, making tacos out of Doritos and apple pies out of empanadas isn't enough; this new offering is a "shell" of waffle filled with scrambled eggs, a sausage patty and a side of syrup (460 calories and 30 grams of fat) for $0.89 each.

Taco Bell focused on only five restaurants around the San Diego area for the initial test launch, which included other breakfast items like a yogurt parfait, but the waffle taco has proved so immediately popular that nearly 100 Taco Bells will boast of offering the creation as soon as this weekend.

San Diego Comic-Con Finally Has Something for Foodies

July 18, 2013 at 3:06 PM | by | Comments (0)

For the first time foodies are getting their own panel at San Diego Comic-Con. A Feast For Your Eyes: Creativity In Comics and Cuisine will bring together 5 panelists to discuss the similarities in the creative processes of artists and chefs.

The panel's official description reads, "Cooking is creativity. Food is art. In so many ways, the connections between food and comics on a creative level are everywhere. A chef's knife is the equivalent of an artist's pencil or brush. Their kitchens are their canvases. Both chefs and artists are only limited by their own imaginations; they both use their tools to take what is in their minds and create masterpieces in different mediums. But the processes are the same, and that's what panelists will be exploring in this open discussion."
