First, this week is the San Diego Bay Wine & Food Festival. There are several events tied into the festival and all kinds of ticket packages you can get that include special tastings, cooking classes, and more. You can read about all of the events on the website, but the biggie of all of the events is the wine and food tasting at the Embarcadero on Saturday. I volunteered for this event in the past and I can guarantee that while it's not cheap ($100 a ticket, I think $125 the day of), there are SO. MANY. WINES. and it's all complimented by gourmet food sampling from 50 different restaurants in San Diego. They don't skimp on the food, either. If you're lucky enough to be unaffected by the current economic downtown and want to see rich cougars get totally wasted, this might be the event for you. The event is at the Embarcadero on Saturday, from Noon-4, or you can go at 11 with a VIP ticket ($150).
Second, this weekend is the Pink Party. It's a huge festival of artists, fashion shows, street performers, DJs and bands, in support of Breast Cancer Awareness. Tickets are $48 each. You can read all about the event here.
The Pink Party will donate a minimum of 50% of all monies generated by the event to the Breast Cancer Fund and Breast Cancer Network of Strength (Formerly Y-ME National Breast Cancer Organization).
Last, for web geeks, programmers, computer enthusiasts and more, this weekend is Bar Camp San Diego. An "unconference" where the attendees are also the ones giving presentations (on anything and everything), this weekend's sleepover will be at Intuit in Carmel Valley from 10 am Saturday through 6 pm on Sunday. You must be signed up to attend. For more information, click here.
