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!
