    Lookin’ for love in all the wrong places?

    If you’re on the prowl, make sure you don’t miss Pacific San Diego Magazine’s big charity auction at the House of Blues on Saturday night. Not only will you have the chance to bid on the most eligible bachelors and bachelorettes San Diego has to offer, the auction’s proceeds will benefit the Big Brothers Big Sisters of San Diego County. According to Pacific Magazine’s marketing director, Alyson Baker, the contestants will be a mix of some of the most recognizable celebrities from TV, radio and PR that San Diego has to offer.

    “Each bachelor/bachelorette will have their own personalized ‘experience’ attached to them and tailored to their individual interests," Baker said – which means that auction winners will be making memories right off the bat on some particularly enjoyable dates/dinners.

    Fret not: Even if you don’t nab one of the contestants, it’s still an event not to be missed. Set to coincide with Pacific magazine’s Music Issue (on stands now), the auction is only part of the festivities. Not content to be hosting the event for a good cause and giving anyone with deep enough pockets access to some of the city's most famous faces, they’ve booked one of the hottest local bands for a live concert immediately following the auction. The band’s identity will be kept secret until the night of the show (bachelor/bachelorettes, take notice: Keep some things a mystery – it works wonders), but, according to Baker, the as-of-yet unannounced act is “guaranteed to pack the house and keep the party going."

    Tickets are $30 each and include two complementary drinks and access to the VIP cocktail hour. Doors are at 6 p.m.
