Here is all the fun happening in the community this week.
Get the cheese plate and helmet-shaped potato chip bowl ready, it's time for the Super Bowl LIV. This year the 49ers take on the Kansas City Chiefs and Hillcrest is celebrating with lots of viewing events that include food and beverages.
But first, two of San Diego's most well-known gay artists are making available some of their more erotic works. Joe Phillips and Erik Benson have created some titillating pieces they will sell to the public at the Blok.
Urban Mo's is cracking the whip at a special punk, queer celebration on Saturday.
Then for the big game on Sunday, several local bars and clubs are taking you to the gridiron for an afternoon of competitive sports.
All of this and so much more in this week's Out & About.
