Things To Do In San Diego: October 29, 2010

I hate to be a scrooge but I seriously do not like Halloween. I think of it like other amateur nights (New Year's Eve, Fat Tuesday, St. Patrick's Day), only now you add the element of a disguise which allows for even more stupidity, and there are no rules, so pretty much every night this weekend will have grown-ups in costumes everywhere you go. I know, I'm a total sourpuss, but I just cringe at how adults hijacked a holiday for kids. All of that said, there are dozens of things to do every night this weekend and I'm sure there are things I missed, so you can email or leave a comment if you know of something I missed.

And just to throw it out there, I've never had any serious desire to go to 207, but the hottest of hotties Joe Manganiello is hosting a night there. Hey Joe- after you finish with the bourgie crowd, I'll put you on the list at the Casbah if you wanna hang out. Just saying. For weekend listing, click 'keep on reading'.
