Here is everything worth doing in the neighborhood this weekend.
This week it's all about the white, The White Party that is. Palm Springs is about to get wild as The White Party celebrates its 30th anniversary.
Among things to do locally, there's the AIDS/LifeCycle Silent Auction, The Stonewall Citizens Patrol Community Picnic and Open House and there's a night of jazz at Martinis Above Fourth.
Plus so much more to do this week in and around Hillcrest.
Happy 30th White Party!
The White Party Palm Springs takes place April 26th - 29th, 2019 and is widely considered the largest gay dance music festival in the nation. It has evolved throughout the years to become an international cultural and social phenomenon attracting more than 30,000 attendees from every corner of the globe.
Porto Vista is Where It's At
The Porto Vista Hotel has always been one of the gems of San Diego. It's a place for the community to spend some time, have some drinks and socialize just before the weekend. SDPIX Presents Top of the Bay at the Porto Vista Hotel so you can end your week, plan your weekend and sip cocktails with great views, and great music.
