Things To Do In San Diego (NYE Edition): Friday, December 30, 2016-Sunday, January 1, 2017

Back when we became full time parents earlier this spring, I dreaded the idea of Nova having to leave three times a year, but with this being her third visit of the year, we now know to take advantage of the time. We've been organizing our studio, purging old clothes and things, going out to restaurants the kid would snub her nose at, going out, and of course, catching up on sleep. While we miss her terribly, I can't say it isn't also awesome to sort of wrap up the year ready for a fresh 2017. This week we checked out False Idol, went to Blonde on the Kings of Leon tribute night, saw Henry Rollins, saw the Melvins, have been having evening walks, and we've been communing with the opossums my cat used to look after when they were babies, with three separate visits this week alone. Of course, it's NYE weekend so there are a gazillion things to do tonight and tomorrow, so I thought I'd repost the listings to make it easier to navigate. Saturday and Sunday archives are after the jump. If you don't hear from me tomorrow, Happy New Year to all. May we stand in solidarity against the impending havoc and doom about to be unleashed upon our country.
