Would it surprise you to know that San Diego is the city with the largest Mardi Gras festival west of the Mississippi River? I mean, you know San Diegan’s like a good party, right? The following are just a few of the debaucherous ways that you can celebrate on Fat Tuesday (February 12, 2013).
As little ghosts and goblins come out to play and traipse from house to house in their sugar-fueled quest on October 31, it’s hard for the grown-ups not to feel just a little bit envious. Just because we’ve grown older doesn’t mean we have outgrown our sweet tooths (well, some of us, anyway)!
If you’re looking for a little sweet indulgence this Halloween, fear not – San Diego offers some diabolically delicious holiday treats sure to delight those too old for trick or treating.
Break out the shades and flip flops, it's officially summer season in San Diego. After the break are our five to try for this 3-day weekend. What will you be doing?
As I write this blog post I am in the process of planning my evening’s itinerary and have decided that tonight is a rooftop night. Not only does San Diego’s great climate allow for fantastic beach days, tons of water sports and plenty of outdoorsy activities, it also allows locals and visitors alike to enjoy the nightlife outside as well!
Rooftop bars, lounges and nightclubs abound in San Diego – where revelers often relax in front of fire pits, listening to the soft thump of lounge music and sipping on their favorite cocktails.
Many of these rooftop oases are spread throughout, though not limites to, the Gaslamp Quarter. After the break are just a few options for an evening of lounging under the stars.
San Diego offers something for everyone on St. Patrick’s Day. Make sure to set out your green threads the night before because after the break are your 5 to Try that will keep you moving from sun-up to well past sun-down.
What will you be doing the night of February 21st? While you may not be stumbling along the streets of Bourbon Street chucking strings of beads to wide eyed revelers, hopefully you will be celebrating Mardi Gras right here in San Diego!
Officially, Fat Tuesday falls on February 21, 2012. And when Sir Simon Cowell himself says that “DJ’s are the new rock stars,” it is fair to pay homage in this blog to the 4 stages and rotating DJ’s of Mardi Gras in the Gaslamp on Tuesday, February 21. But while I may give up carbs or cuss words for the Lenten season, I certainly am NOT giving up live music- which makes every day Mardi Gras for me! What will be your musical Mardi Gras this year?
