Ah, another rain-drenched weekend. You, however, aren't the Wicked Witch of the West. You won't melt in the rain. There's music to groove to, authors to be heard, and TV personalities to be spotted!
We’ve got the best bets for you from Feb. 24-27, whether you want to stay close to Coronado or take a drive to find even more to do. Check our picks for the places to see and things to do.
This week we feature a visit from a newly-elected senator and an opportunity to see some snow. Click for all the details.
BEST BET, CLOSE TO HOME
Where/when: McP's Irish Pub & Grill, Coronado, 8 p.m. Thursday, 9 p.m. Friday through Saturday.
Why Go: For all the live music. This weekend's bands are Gonzology, Mystique, and the Offbeats. And keep abreast of their to-the-second countdown to St. Patrick's Day.
Where/when: St. Paul's United Methodist Church, Coronado, 4 p.m. Sunday.
Why Go: To hear a concert to celebrate the release of San Diego recording artist Phil Higgins' "You Are God," a CD of praise and worship songs. Higgins will debut two new songs.
BEST BETS, A LITTLE FARTHER AFIELD
Where/when: Warwick's, La Jolla, 3 p.m., Saturday.
Why Go: To satisfy your political curiosity. Whether you're a fan or a foe, Tea Party darling Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky, has been riding high since his November election. He arrives to promote his first book.
Price: Must purchase book to meet Paul.
Where/when: Mount Laguna, Julian or Pine Valley, Friday through Sunday.
Why Go: San Diego's rain last weekend meant lots of nice powdery snow for much of the back country. The weather might cooperate again this weekend. So dust off that sled or just put on a good pair of gloves for a nice snowfight. Keep an eye on Ramona Patch for updates on weather and road conditions.
