What's Happening This Week in San Diego?

What’s Happening This Week? (February 13-19, 2015)

What are you guys doing this weekend? Staying in? Braving the crazy Valentine’s restaurant crowds? Me, I’ll be dead-tired from my band’s mini-tour — today we’re playing in Los Angeles, tomorrow night Ventura — but I think the significant other and I might try to do a short picnic in the park or something. I hope you guys do something that makes you feel great!
