Social Chaos: Scene Out
If we look familiar it is probably because you may have seen us taking photos for San Diego LGBT Weekly. Perhaps we took a photo of you at one point. If so, thank you for sharing your smiles with us. If our faces are not familiar, but our names are, then maybe you’ve read some of our articles. Either way, we’re excited to get to know everyone even better and share our adventures within the community and beyond.
We are open to try anything from skydiving and bungee jumping to outdoor concerts and food festivals. We hope that we can be an instrument in your next adventure; give you that final push to try something new or make you curious about an event or place that you haven’t been to before.
Last week, we ventured out to Balboa Park for the Women’s Museum of California’s annual Wine, Cheese and Chocolate Festival. It was full of delectable treats, a variety of wine, and music by Sue Palmer, “Queen of Boogie Woogie”. We found heaven when we tried the chocolate wine. Yes, chocolate wine. It was so delicious that we had to have seconds. We also got to meet museum director; Ashley Gardner. If you missed out on this year’s festival, we recommend adding it to your calendars now.
We ran into fellow San Diego LGBT Weekly writer, Pastor Dan, of “Where’s the Faith?” while attending Ron Oster’s house party for clients and friends. It was a great way to meet neighbors and make “that” connection that is often difficult when one is too busy or too shy. He also had refreshing margaritas, which is always useful in helping break the ice.
Karaoke nights at The Caliph is the place to be. The atmosphere is down to earth and there’s camaraderie between the regulars that makes you feel at ease. You’ll want to be belting out tunes along with them. You can check out their karaoke scene on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays from 9 p.m.-1 a.m.
For those late night cravings, check out El Zarape in University Heights. The food will fill you up and satisfy you after a night out. The small restaurant is a few doors down from Bourbon Street. The seating is limited but the service is quick, the price is right and the food is amazing.
Here’s what’s coming up in our calendar: The Melissa Etheridge concert at Harrah’s Casino June 22; opening night of Diversionary Theatre’s Harmony, Kansas; a world premiere in San Diego June 23; and Pachanga de Frida at The Center June 30, which is a celebratory event of Frida Kahlo’s birthday with a Frida look-alike contest.
You’ll never know what we’re up to. We live in the moment and take whatever is thrown our way. Find us dancing the night away in the Hillcrest clubs, at a street festival or kayaking in La Jolla. Whatever it is, say hi to us as you may be the next person “Scene Out with Kim and Ana.”
