Happy Saturday! It’s another beautiful day in San Diego and I am off to host a private beer tour party bus birthday party. I have not been on any brewery tours here in SD yet and it’s something we will be adding for our list of fun things to do with Gale Force 🙂  Thanks to everyone who came out to Mother’s Saloon last night. Dub Grammer played all night to a 2/3 full house on a rainy Friday night. Tonight Gale Force Productions Presents: Sunny Rude at Mother’s Saloon.

Tonight Ocean Beach is buzzing with music as usual. With Sandollar playing at Gallagher’s Irish Pub and music happening all day long at Winston’s starting with Jet Wash at 6pm then our friends at On Point Promotions Presents:  Revival, Piracy, Lion Path and TRC Sound System.

Where ever you are in America’s Finest City there is plenty to do and we have most of it list here for you to find. Check out our NEW Facebook featured events with links just below the list of shows on our locator.

San Diego Event & Show Locator for Tuesday Feb 5, 2013

It’s TACO Tuesday again! I had mine at Oscar’s Mexican Seafood in La Jolla and when we got there they served with a free warm cup of seafood soup. The surf and turf taco was excellent. Word on the street is that Oscar’s is opening up another location in Ocean Beach in a few weeks at the old El Rodeo spot just under Ace Tattoo. I highly recommend checking them out. Reminds me of Mazitlan and a bitchin fishing trip I had once.

We’ve been getting a great response to our locator and want to make it easier so we are going to try some new formats over next couple of weeks and we want to hear your suggestions. We will have a calendar layout and some other surprises soon but not until they figure out the issue with the WordPress plug in.
So since today is Tuesday and one of the lighter nights of the week I’ll try one out on ya for only tonight’s events. Mainly just shows that I have gotten FB invites from. Then I will post for Wed-Fri. I have included the links to your facebook invites to make it easier to find. If you want your invite to be linked and included in our locator it’s simple. Make an invite and send it to us a few days in advance..a week is even better 😉

Be sure to give us your feedback on the new changes – thank you!
