Sounds Like San Diego: November 2



    It's another Friday night in San Diego but it's not just any Friday -- it's the kickoff to San Diego Beer Week. If you're like me, you know that craft beer and music go hand in hand and there's no reason to isolate yourself into one scene or the other, especially when they meld so well together.

    After your evening pairings and keg tappings, head to Soda Bar to kick back with the Donkeys. Soda Bar has a pretty stellar lineup of beers year round, so sink into a Damnation while catching that easy breezy feeling with the band. The Casbah recently added some craft beer, too, like Manzanita to join the always popular selections from Stone and others, which you can enjoy while dancing your BAL off to Kid Koala. Or you can head up to the Ruby Room, again with a vast selection of craft beers, while enjoying the zombie theme of the evening for an exciting lineup of San Diego up-and-comers. Keep a cab number handy and enjoy San Diego in all of its beer and musical goodness. It just might be the start of a really long week.
