Cirque du Soleil's TOTEM

The Cirque is coming to town! Returning to the Del Mar Fairgrounds, April 25-May 13, 2012 is Cirque du Soleil’s TOTEM. This will be the last stop for TOTEM in the west before it moves over to Boston in June. TOTEM traces the fascinating journey of the human species from its original amphibian state to its ultimate desire to fly. The characters evolve on a stage evoking a giant turtle, the symbol of origin for many ancient civilizations.

Inspired by many founding myths, TOTEM illustrates, through a visual and acrobatic language, the evolutionary progress of species. Somewhere between science and legend TOTEM explores the ties that bind Man to other species, his dreams and his infinite potential.

Burlap

Described in Executive Chef Brian Malarkey’s playful tone as “Asian Cowboy” cuisine, Searsucker’s sister restaurant Burlap offers a hybrid of meat, seafood and bold sides with Asian influences. Burlap embraces the relaxed North County San Diego vibe while injecting Chef Malarkey’s playful touch on the coastal destination.

About Suzzanne

I love to buy books, but seldom actually finish one. I like african violets, my iPhone, and everything that smells like lavender.  I am seriously adverse to the cold and am known to bring a sweatshirt to the beach in the summer.  I have two kids – a boy whose 10 and a girl 12.

What would you do on your ideal San Diego Day?

It would start by having breakfast somewhere near the ocean – either Pannikin in Encinitas or Beach Grass Café in Solana Beach.  Then we would head to the beach hang out for a few hours, head home and then catch a concert in the park in Balboa Park.

What is your favorite San Diego outdoor activity?

We love riding our bikes around town.  There are great places to ride in San Diego that kids can handle – Coronado Island, Point Loma or the boardwalk in Pacific Beach are just a few.

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

Depends on the day, a good burger and craft brew can really hit the spot, but I would probably end up ordering linguine and white wine.
