Things To Do In San Diego: December 29-30 2009

Click 'keep on reading' for Dec 29-30, 2009 show archives.

I've included some New Year's listings, however I don't list every party in town. If you want the $100ticket & bottle service parties, you're reading the wrong website. If there is anything from my usual venues that I'm missing, please don't hesitate to let me know. (Soda Bar??) Additionally, several venues haven't updated their January calendars as yet, so when Whistle Stop, O'Connell's, Brick By Brick and a few others handle their business, I'll update here. Also note that a few places are closed on Friday (including Casbah and Tin Can Ale House), so double check before you head out this weekend.

Finally, I just want to say that NYE is the biggest amateur night (read: sloppy drunks) of the year. Don't drink and drive. I know public transportation in this city BLOWS and cabs are a complete ripoff, but consider the alternative (a DUI, a weekend in jail, or worse) and $30 or $40 suddenly seems like a bargain. You can make a reservation with cab companies to be in a certain place at a certain time to avoid a super long wait. You can also TEXT for a cab by sending your street address and zip code to 777222. Also consider 24 hour places you can wait safely for a cab...Santanas, Denny's, Lestat's, Rolbertos, Los Panchos...you get the idea. And not to bum you out, but should you find yourself in a legal predicament over the weekend, read up on Catdirt's DUI FAQ Pt. 1, Pt. 2, and Pt 3.
