Things to do in San Diego, free or near free

Here in Carlsbad this week visiting my Dad and he gets the local paper which has free or near free events listed. Here are some...courtesy of the San Diego Union Tribune.

I have also posted some good eats recommendations from previous visits.

This coming Friday, I think that is June 4. Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is playing at Beach Ampitheater. Start time is sunset. The event is free and the parks department will sell drinks to help money for programs. Oceanside.

Join the intermediate French club on June 1 at Encinitas branch library. 1 pm, 540 Cornish Drive.

Discuss a book at First Wednesday book club. June 2, 7pm, 1250 Carlsbad Village Dr., Georgina Coles Library Community Room. Topic is Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. This sounds good to me as I am a big fan of the late author.

Intenet basics class, June 2, 2pm at Carlsbad Library Learning Center 3368 Eureka Place.

Knit and stitch class, June 3, 3 to 430 pm at Del Mar Branch Library, 1309 Camino Del Mar.

Four chamber mixer, 4 local chambers of commerce will have a joint mixer on June 8 at 4pm, Tri City Medical Center, 4002 vista Way, Oceanside. If you have a local business in Arizona, go and introduce yourself... and maybe you will make a new client.

Short film screening, June 4, 8pm, Escondido Municipal Gallery, 262 E. Grand Ave. Escondido.

Book sale, June 2, 1 to 7 pm, Rancho Bernado Library, first floor, 17110 Bernardo Center Drive. Rancho Bernardo.

Eveoke Dance Theatre, hip hop moves, June 2, 2 and 7 pm, California Center for the Arts, 340 N. Escondido Blvd. in Escondido.

Warwicks book shop has author events in June. One that looks interesting is an exclusive tour of International Rescue Committee, June 2, 930am to 130pm. Tour includes transportation and lunch. info at 7812 Girard Avenue. La Jolla.

Harry Brown, a movie with Michael Caine, is playing at Hillcrest Cinema, which is in the family of Landmark Theatres at 3965 5th Avenue, downtown San Diego. My Dad tells me this theatre shows a lot of indie films, akin to Camelview 5 in Phoenix.

Farmers Market from 1 to 5 pm, Wednesdays and Saturdays. Carlsbad.

Some good dining options include the Brigantine in Coronado, since they do delicious fish tacos at happy hour, and their house margarita is pretty tasty. I think they have a location in Del Mar also. I also like Anthonys in San Diego. Their fish and chips are yummy, go to their outside location called Fishette, or you can go inside and order red snapper wish mushroom and artichoke sauce. Their zabliagione, not sure on the spelling, is a sponge cake type dessert with a topping made with a dessert wine, it is a right of passage when you are at Anthonys.

Fun events and good eats. And great weather! Celebrate the wonder that is San Diego.
