IrinaLabor Day weekend marks the unofficial end of summer, but the good times are just beginning.  Here are some ways to spend your long weekend in San Diego.

August 28:

Mix up your Thursday nights with dinner and a museum, pairing the Prado with Remix Night at the Museum of Photographic Arts.

August 29:

It’s all about tall ships at the four-day Festival of Sail at the North Embarcadero.

Creativity abounds at the U.S. Sand Sculpting Challenge and 3D Art Exposition.

U.S. Sand Sculpting Competition 9 a.m. at the B  Street Pier You’ve probably made some pretty impressive sandcastles in  your day, but they won’t hold a shovel to the masterpieces that will on display  this weekend. Sandcastle artists from around the world will create sandy  sculptures like you’ve never seen before. The event runs Friday through Labor  Day.

San Diego Labor Day PubCrawl

2 p.m. – 10 p.m. in the  Gaslamp District Raise a glass (or two) to the long weekend. When you  arrive at Taste and Thirst, you’ll receive a map of participating bars offering  $2 draft beers, 2-for-1 mixed drinks and $4 shots.

Wienerschnitzel Wiener Dog Nationals San Diego  Finals

5:10 p.m. at the Del Mar Race Track They may not be  the fastest competitors at the Del Mar Race Track, but they’re definitely the  cutest. Sixteen speedy dachshunds will run their hearts, all for the chance to  represent San Diego County in the 2014 Wiener Dog Nationals.

August 31

Labor Day Weekend Pool Party 1 p.m. – 9 p.m. at  RoofTop600 in the Gaslamp This Vegas-style pool party is BYOI: Bring  Your Own Inflatable. The music and drinks keep flowing from afternoon to night  at downtown San Diego’s largest rooftop entertainment space.

SoundDiego Suggestion: The Frights 6:30 p.m. at  SOMA This all-ages show promises some of the best youthful garage  pop/punk you’ll find anywhere. The Frights are perennial favorites of ours, even  though they’re not even old enough to hang out in the clubs they usually perform  in, and they’ll be joined by the equally contagious Death Lens, making the trek  to SD from LA. The two bands teamed up for an impressive split EP recently  (which we reviewed here.) Bottom  line: It’ll be fun, rowdy and cheap – what more do you need?

September 1

85th Annual Oceanside Labor Day Pier Swim 8:30 a.m.  at the Oceanside Pier Grab your swim cap and goggles. Join hundreds of  fellow swimming enthusiasts for this time-honored tradition in Oceanside.

Festival of Sail on the San Diego Bay 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.  at the Embarcadero Set sail for adventure on the San Diego Bay. This  four-day event features cannon battles, a petting zoo, a beer garden and even  photo ops with a pirate. (New profile picture perhaps?) Don’t miss it.

Part of staying fit is eating healthy! This week I wanted to share a bit about the newest addition to our home. We just recently, well actually yesterday, got a new juicer! Now I’m not the guru when it comes to new ideas in the kitchen, I put my trust in my wife Sydney when it comes to food and eating healthy! This is her newest concoction, Super-Food Juice!!

2 kale leaves
1/2 cucumber
1 green apple
1 piece of ginger (thumb size)
1/2 lemon (peeled)
1 large carrot
2 stalks celery
1/2 large beet

Luxury Living JuicerPlace all ingredients in the juicer and enjoy! If you do not have a juicer, you can place all the ingredients with some water (just enough to blend) or coconut water (for some extra electrolytes) in a blender. Once the ingredients are blended make sure to strain your juice. Chill in the fridge or poor over ice and enjoy!

Immune Booster

1 green apple
1/2 lemon (peeled)
3 large carrots
1/2 cucumber
1 piece ginger
1 piece turmeric

Same instructions as above

Also note, use the pulp to make vitamin packed sweet breads, cupcakes, dog treats and more! Check out these dog treats made from pulp!

Missoin Valley Dog Treats

While I’m still in shock at the tragic news, I can’t help but reminisce about one of our generation’s greatest entertainers and all of his timeless movies.

These are just a few of my favorites…

RB

 

“I don’t have very much time these days so I’ll make it quick. Like my life. You know, as we come to the end of this phase of our life, we find ourselves trying to remember the good times and trying to forget the bad times, and we find ourselves thinking about the future. We start to worry , thinking, “What am I gonna do? Where am I gonna be in ten years?” But I say to you, “Hey, look at me!” Please, don’t worry so much. Because in the end, none of us have very long on this Earth. Life is fleeting. And if you’re ever distressed, cast your eyes to the summer sky when the stars are strung across the velvety night. And when a shooting star streaks through the blackness, turning night into day… make a wish and think of me. Make your life spectacular. I know I did.”

- Jack, 1996

Thank you for all of the laughs and the constant reminder not to take life too seriously. You will be missed.
