We made it out to December nights this weekend and it was amazing. I’m lucky enough to be able to walk to Balboa Park from mi casa, which was convenient as the event brought approx 300,000 people and too many cars. Balboa Park was busting at the seams with families of all shapes and sizes. Great for people watching. 🙂 The international houses opened their doors and you could get Lebanese food, Chinese food, Scottish food… anything your heart desired. They had a full carnival with a Ferris wheel, vendors selling gifts and performances by dance teams and choirs. What an event. My favorites were the Peruvian dance, Indian dance and the blind choir.
The second night I tried some Gluhwein (warm wine w/brandy and other fun ingredients) and it was the perfect drink for a cool winter night. Too bad it was warm in SD and I was sweating in my jacket… damn global warming! After the park we headed to the Casbah to see The Uglysuit perform. We actually met them outside and they helped us get 2 of our group in because they were sold out. Here is Zank and The guys from The Uglysuit. So down to earth, so chill and their music was amazing! Check out The Uglysuit Website or their MySpace. Here we are rockin’ out. Or at least I am!
Here is a video of The Uglysuit @ the Casbah. Go to their website to hear more!
