On August 15 and 16, the National Park Service, in an effort to get across to us that our national parks are awesome, offered free admission into more than 100 national parks across the nation, and it just so happens that we have one right here in San Diego.
We all know about one star that everybody comes to San Diego to enjoy (the sun, folks) but what about the billions of other stars that get virtually no play here in the city where there are too many lights at night to allow us to allow us access to the heavens? Here are two fun options for getting in some quality stargazing in San Diego.
So when you think of relaxing in San Diego, you probably think about soaking up the sun on one of our beaches, getting some spa treatments or enjoying a nice cocktail on a rooftop bar. All absolutely valid ways to let the stress just melt away. But last week I experienced an alternative (and more cathartic) way […]
I may not have a voice like Celine Dion, but I do enjoy singing “My Heart Will Go On,” from time to time. And why just give my shower and car the only chance to hear my beautiful, melodic voice? Singers of all abilities (or none at all) can sing in front of live audiences just […]
I love the Travelocity gnome. You know, the little guy with the red hat and the white beard that travels the globe, but isn’t Santa Claus? Well San Diego lovers, if you love the gnome as much as I do, here’s your chance to bring him to our sunny city. Vote to bring the Travelocity […]
I am super excited that Broadway San Diego is bringing Wicked back to San Diego this summer! I missed it when it was here in 2006, and have been waiting patiently (or at least somewhat-patiently) for its return! Wicked will be playing at the San Diego Civic Center from July 29 – August 30. For those […]
The other weekend, the guys and I took a little trip to a destination famous for its gambling opportunities and had a great time. But in truth, I spent very little time at the tables and slots. Why did I forgo this intregal part of the trip, you ask? ‘Cause I’ve got plenty of opportunities to gamble here in […]
My people-watching session proved to be more fruitful than I expected! Through the magic of common begging — and with the help of a generous Comic-Con attendee — my boys and I were able to enter the Con and take a quick lap around the exhibit hall to see what we could see.
If you dislike large, fantastically dressed crowds, or are a supervillain wishing to avoid any run-ins with the superhero community, you would be wise to stay away from downtown San Diego this weekend! Comic-Con 2009 has long been sold out — not to keep rubbing it in — but the Gaslamp Quarter is still the place to be this weekend, if only to get in some of the best people watching of the year. Sitting out on the patio of any restaurant in the Gaslamp Quarter gives you ringside seats to a true San Diego spectacle as our most colorful conventioneers fill the streets.
Last week I was lucky enough to attend Kona Kai Resort’s first luau of the summer. Having only experienced a luau in Hawaii when I was all of 11 years old, I had no idea what I was in for. Was I supposed to bring my own hula skirt? Did you have to eat the […]
