Halloween may be on Saturday, but that won’t stop the Gaslamp Quarter from “dressing up” in period costume the next day, Sunday, November 1, during the 9th annual Fall Back Festival.
One of my favorite things about San Diego is all the diverse neighborhoods located within the county. All in all, there are more than 100 neighborhoods and one each offers its own unique experience, personality and charm. While I could go on and on about each, my hands-down favorite is Ocean Beach…well “OB” as us […]
There are two huge, 2-day events that I look forward to each year: Adams Avenue Street Fair and the Pacific Islander Festival — both taking place September 26 and 27. Unfortunately, without the wits and resources of a Brady, there’s no way for me to enjoy both days of programming.
Each year, ArtWalk on the Bay celebrates that spirit by packing as many artists and art pieces into Embarcadero Marina Park North (right where Seaport Village is) this weekend as possible, along with art teachers, musicians (on two stages), and even demonstrations from culinary artists.
The Spanish Village Art Center is home to 37 working artist studios that are open to the public every day. Here, you can wander through and watch as art is created. You can check out the local art all around and even support the artists by picking up a fresh piece for yourself.

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.
Every December San Diego rolls out the red carpet for two deserving college football teams for the Pacific Life Holiday Bowl. Many of my favorite memories growing up a sports fan in San Diego were watching Holiday Bowl games. Players like Barry Sanders, Steve Young, and Jim McMahon have turned in memorable performances at these […]
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.
