Things To Do In San Diego: July 27-29, 2012

Are you ready for the weekend? I know I sure am. My niece is turning five and it just reminds me how fast time can fly by and how much I look forward to my sister's yummy cupcakes. There are great shows all over town this weekend and if you look hard, you'll see that the theme of 2012 being the year of small festivals, just take a look at the new So Cal World Music Festival this weekend at the Four Points Sheraton or the Muir Avenue Block Party in Ocean Beach. There are some cool things happening over at the Roots Factory and the Museum of Art is open for 36 hours straight for a special night of their Salon Series. There certainly is something for everyone this weekend. (Special thanks to Chase for doing this weekend's listings. Sometimes he is just way too good to me.)

Thanks for the list! My brother, best friend, good buddy and I are trying to find something to do all night tonight.

Ideally, we'd find a great group of people on a private beach that wanted to drink beers and play music around a fire. Maybe that kind of thing doesn't happen. But if it does, we'd really love to find it before heading back to Canada tomorrow morning.

Is there anything like that going on tonight? Or does anyone have any all nighter suggestions (where drugs aren't required for the experience) Thanks.

I'm sorry I didn't see your comments until today (Sunday). Hopefully you found something, though since all of our beaches are now alcohol free (and strictly watched), hopefully you stayed out of trouble. Thanks for the suggestion on the comment interface, unfortunately this is run through Blogger, so that isn't something I can change.
