Things To Do In San Diego: Thursday, December 2-Wednesday, December 8, 2021: SoNo Fest | Taste of December Nights | Courtney Barnett | SRH Fest | Baby Bushka |

Courtney Barnett at Pappy & Harriet's (Taken 1.31.20)

I wanted to bust through listings today because I need to get some outside time in at the San Diego Zoo for my sanity. There are a ton of events and I'm maybe backing off my plan to do a full-o Christmas Events page as I've done in the past because I don't necessarily want to be the one promoting lots of mixing and crowds and such. Yes, I'm doing listings, but most venues at this point have a vaccination or testing requirement and no matter how bad this omicron variant gets, I would suggest that we won't see any kind of shutdown again, save for maybe more universal mask requirements and vaccines with no testing option or a shorter testing window option. Whatever it all means, stay safe out there. Keep doing the right thing even if people around you aren't. I'm going to my first show at the Observatory to see Courtney Barnett on Sunday, so I'm finally diving in. I'm sure I missed a whole bunch of stuff, I'll update as I find them.

Stay safe out there.
