    and stealth fighter jets, as well as simulated combat demonstrations, amazing areal performances and a nighttime show with the Great Wall of Fire and a firework grand finale.  I’ve heard that the wall of fire is AMAZING so I’ll be there to check it out this weekend.

  2. Bratwurst, beer gardens and oompapa bands can only mean one thing—Oktoberfest! This weekend, check out celebrations of this German holiday during Oktoberfest in La Mesa, the largest festival the U.S. West Coast and Octoberfest in El Cajon. As the German’s would say, “Prost!”

About Stephenie

I’m a Nor Cal girl loving my Sol Cal world. I have a passion for fashion but can’t ever quite afford it. I love to laugh and often crack myself up. I hang with the guys and gossip with the girls. I like to wear my stunna shades at night.

What would you do on your ideal San Diego day?

I would spend the day in Balboa Park and finally visit all the museums.

If you were invisible, where would you go?

I’d hit the beach and get rid of my tan lines… can you tan when you’re invisible??

What is your favorite San Diego outdoor activity?

Catching a Padres game at PETCO Park, bike riding along the Pacific Beach/Mission Beach boardwalk or going to the Little Italy Mercado on Saturdays.

Do you prefer burgers and beer or linguine and red wine?

Burgers and beer all the way.
