Let’s skip over the fact that I haven’t done one of these event roundup posts in three years. Three years? Good Lord. Yeah, let’s just forget about that. “What’s Happening This Week?” is a weekly (duh) roundup of art, food, beer, and craft events around San Diego. It does have a bias towards Uptown events… but I want this to become a comprehensive weekly resource, so please, please, please let me know if I’m missing anything, if there are any cool galleries I should check out, etc!
