Taste dozens and dozens of San Diego’s best vendors all at once. This year’s vendors include We Olive, Oceanaire, Pali Wine Co., LJ Crafted Wines, Guthrie Cider Works, Flemings Prime Steakhouse and Wine Bar, and Eppig Brewing – to name a few. 

It’s for a great cause. For 90 years, the Junior League of San Diego has had a lasting and positive impact on the community of San Diego. The organization’s advocacy efforts have successfully improved the well being of women, children and families in San Diego County. The JLSD hopes to raise $120,000 this year so they can continue supporting transition-age foster youth and the community.

Perfect excuse to dress up. Pull that perfect summer dress out from the closet, match it with your favorite shoes, and pair it with a huge hat! Check out the Village Hat Shop in La Jolla for a festive hat for the occasion. Since the event is on grass, skip the heels and opt for wedges or flats instead.

Bring your mom. Since its Mothers Day weekend, treat your mom to an afternoon she won’t forget!

Enjoy La Jolla Cove Views with vino in hand. Nothing says hello spring like a fresh glass of chardonnay, the San Diego sun, and rolling waves from the cove below.
