Wait, what? Summer's over?
That’s right, summer’s over but hopefully you have been blessed with a three-day weekend to help you cope with your loss. If you hope to make it through the bitter San Diego autumn and even more brutal winter... you have to hit the beach this weekend and soak up your sorrows with Vitamin D and salt water...and if that doesn’t quite do it, maybe mimosa or two.
What to do...
If you live in San Diego you know what it’s like to be inundated in Facebook event invites and overwhelmed by all the possibilities– well, The Avenue Home Collective has sifted through all the possibilities for you. We have made the ultimate Guide to Labor Day Weekend at the Beach to make the transition into autumn just a little bit easier. We've provided you with four killer event options, some brunch spots on the beach and a few picture perfect places to uncork the wine and roll out the picnic blanket.
• Events •
For the cultured...
This first event is for the aspiring cultured folk – enjoy the harmonious synchronization of classical music and fireworks above the bay at the 1812 Tchaikovsky Spectacular. A rather glorious way to mourn the end of summer if you ask us!

For the family...

Check out the sand sculpting experts! Since sand sculptures are one of the few truly transient art forms, this event is once in a life time. This event goes on all weekend but the judging will take place Sunday night. Monday will be the absolute last time to witness these master pieces in the history of forever. Find out more information here.
Nothing screams the end of bikini season like SD BACON FEST. Long live fall sweaters and leggings as we prepare for winter and rejoice in the bacon & beer diet. If you can’t make the fest but still want to bask in the glory of bacon and beer, SD Bacon Fest and graciously provided some recipes for the at-home celebrators. Find more information here.
For beer enthusiasts..

If you aren’t as keen on bacon and would rather focus your attention on beer... Ballast Point is celebrating its 20th anniversary at the Del Mar Racetracks. In honor of their humble beginnings, Ballast Point is launching a home brew competition! Enjoy a host of different bands (notably featuring The Roots) and 10 tasters of your favorite local beers at the racetracks. Find out more information here.

• Picnic •
When it comes down to it, this weekend is all about going outside with the people you like. If you are looking for a more budget friendly, or casual atmosphere to kick back, relax and uncork the wine... avoid the impossible labyrinth of unpromising parking lots in mission bay and check out some of these outdoor spots!
