This weekend brings an array of unique events to San Diego unlike any other. From national holidays for imbibing to a duo of charitable reasons to get outside to a soul music festival, this weekend packs a variety of opportunities to try something new. Here’s how you should celebrate.
Saturday April 6
Bread & Salt
Kombucha is as San Diegan as year-round sunshine and not being able to properly merge onto a highway, so it’s only right that California’s first hard kombucha brand was started here in Boochcraft. It’s been three years since the brand’s inception, and to celebrate they’re throwing a party at Bread & Salt featuring bottomless kombucha. Go party, tie one (or a couple) on, and help your gut health while you do so.
What it costs: $25
Saturday April 6
Betsy DeVos might not think it’s not necessary to help our country’s special needs community, but you — being the upstanding San Diego Thrillist reader that you are — should. The National Foundation for Autism Research has funded nearly 900 projects in San Diego alone, and their annual Race for Autism is an absolute blast. With the options for a 5K or one-mile fun run or walk and a superhero costume theme, it’s a fantastic way to introduce yourself to one of the most holistically welcoming communities in the country and help a great cause.
What it costs: $38
Sunday April 7
Any of the 200 breweries or thousands of bars in town
If you needed an excuse to day drink on a Sunday, apparently this Sunday is National Beer Day, so you’re not really day drinking, you’re celebrating a holiday — and given that San Diego might well be America’s Craft Beer Capitol, it’s a bit like celebrating July 4th in DC. Call up your favorite brewery or bar, ask if they have any specials to celebrate the momentous event, and then do your civic duty by sucking down some suds.
What it costs: Look up a menu or call your local brewery
