Events are starting to trickle in. We're going to need a spreadsheet to organize all this good stuff.San Diego Beer Week is one of my favorite events in a city with tons of events. Rare beers, food pairings, keep the glass, special dinners, on and on. This year's is looking pretty epic so far. Everyone seems to be waiting until the last week to post events, which is annoying. But I have a few locked in. Taking at least a couple of days off from work for it. Hoping to make all the events below at a minimum.
Saturday might actually be devoted to the "Golden Mile" pub crawl. Which is an all day endurance event. And I need to devote several hours to my annual trek to the beloved Public House La Jolla. Here's a partial list so far.
