FOODIES ON FERN--South Park Abbey is holding its 4th ever Brew ‘n’ Que (1947 Fern St.) TODAY from Noon to closing offering $3.75 brews and smoked beer can chicken with Belching Beaver BBQ sauce.  The Saturday event is a mixer with Belching Beaver Brewery.   Earlier this month, The Belching Beaver opened a new tasting room at 4223 30th, just south of El Cajon Blvd.

Across the street from the South Park Abbey a new Italian cuisine restaurant opened up two weeks ago.  Called Piacere Mio (pleasure is mine), the comfortable place is at 1947 Fern St. at Grape.  Already, this blog has devoured the panini’s and several unarmed cannolo Siciliano to go with Major Domo Marco’s mastery of Italian coffee drinks.  Owners, Stefano Poletti, Marco Fontana open their café at 7 am and close early evening.

Two recent write ups on Piacere Mio:
