Hats, Horses and High Rollers: Opening Day at the Del Mar Races
Seventy-five years have passed since Bing Crosby and his friends opened up the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, but the glamour and prestige of Opening Day hasn’t faded with age. Every year, locals and visitors alike flock to the seaside racetrack to soak up the first day of racing action, not to mention gawk at all the elaborate hats on display, and this year’s Opening Day was no exception.
St. Patrick’s Day Nightlife in San Diego
The luck of the Irish has befallen us this year because St. Patrick’s Day is on a Saturday! What exactly does that mean? It means a full day of holiday revelry – and you know how San Diegans like a good holiday!
Get a great deal on Cirque tickets
I took my wife last week to catch the Cirque du Soliel traveling show Kooza, and our socks were totally blown clean off. The good news is that they are still in town and just launched a new promotion. For a limited time, you can enjoy 40% off Level 1 and 2 tickets and 30% […]
I Love a Parade
There is no shortage of holiday fun to be had here in town, but me — I love a parade. Standing along a street crowded with thousands of my fellow townsfolk, a small child on my shoulders, one strapped to my chest (a new take on “strapping, young man”), watching a big, colorful, musical party go by — that’s the reason for the season, you ask me. Here are three San Diego holiday parades I don’t miss.
The Cirque is coming to town
Every two years San Diego gets a little more exciting as the creative wizards from Cirque du Soleil set up the Gran Chapiteau (French for Big Top) at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. In 2010 they are bringing the traveling show Kooza from February 25 to March 14. Click Here to get your tickets before they […]

The event showcases several types of aircraft, including vintage biplanes and stealth fighter jets, as well as simulated combat demonstrations, amazing areal performances and a nighttime show with the […]
Eye On Comic-Con
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.
Comic-Con Can’t Be Contained!
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.
