Labor Day weekend is upon us, which unofficially marks the end of summer and the beginning of fall. And while the transition of the seasons might go unnoticed in San Diego because our beach days and sunshine will last well into November (I’m not bragging, I’m just saying…), this weekend does mean “LAST CALL!” on some of San Diego’s […]
If you have spent any time driving near the Marine Corps Air Station on Miramar Road, you probably have driven past a collection of vintage military aircraft. That collection is the pride of the Flying Leatherneck Aviation Museum, the only museum dedicated to Marine Corps aviation.
Question of the day, what does wiener dog racing have to do with college football? Find out this Saturday at the 13th annual Wienerschnitzel Wiener Nationals at Qualcomm Stadium. The competition is actually a fund-raiser and awareness-building event for the Pacific Life Holiday Bowl & the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl games played […]
The Hotel del Coronado is throwing a birthday party for Some Like It Hot, the best American comedy ever. (That’s not my opinion on the flick, the American Film Institute says so.) The movie debuted 50 years ago, forever linking the grand dame San Diego hotel with Hollywood’s blonde bombshell, Marilyn Monroe. On Sept. 18-19, […]

So far this summer, plenty of classics have been screened around town, and the fun continues during the “Classics of Comedy” movie series showing at Birch North Park Theatre, right here in my neck of the woods.
Want to check Street Scene set times on the go? Or need help remembering the name of that Wavves song? Well, now there’s an app for that. Last night, Street Scene launched their exclusive event app for iPhone/iPod Touch users.

Need something to tide you over until San Diego Beer Week in November? I just found these cool videos on DRAFT Magazine’s website of behind the scenes tours they took at Karl Strauss and Stone – two of the biggest names in San Diego craft brewing.
For me, Google Maps is a must-have travel tool. I use it to navigate when I’m on the road and I use Street View – the 360-degree photo setting – to get a sneak peek of what my hotel really looks like before I book. Now, I’ve got an even more fun way to use it. Today Legoland […]
