Cross border art and culture event

Looks like there's an interesting event going on in TJ on Sat, Sept 26th. It's an art exhibition in the “Colonia Federal” area of Tijuana, where artists have congregated to live and work. It's called the La Casa del Tunel: Art Center, and is decribed as "an international community center dedicated to promoting and facilitating borderless arts, culture and environmental investigation and awareness."

More info on it here. Anyone up for going?

Could the Turf Club be closing?

Two posts about it, here and here.

odd list of stuff to do in san diego

I stumbled onto this list of the 260 best things to do in San Diego. You know it's an unusual list when the Zoo comes in at #9! Okay, some of it is just weird, but lots of it is stuff I've never heard of, but they sure sound fun to do together over the years ahead.

Pats, originally uploaded by hallywood.

Sophia and the girls stumbled upon Pat's in Northpark a few weeks back, after some locals turned them onto it. They took me there yesterday. A very cool place, with crazy junk, discards and some great finds. Inside you might find a killer piece of old furniture, a Santa hat, a vintage clock or a cool set of books.Think Sanford and Son.

Natalie had the killer find of the day. She has a series of books on her reading list for next year from the charter school we're part of. They had the entire set there, in pristine condition. Retails for $75. She got them, along with a small stuffed animal, for three bucks.
