San Diego was recently stung by Yelp’s Local Buzz! and we’re not just talking about the complimentary IPA’s from Lagunitas Brewing Company or the Bombora Vodka and Greenbar Collective cocktails that were featured at these four awesome parties benefitting the San Diego Jazz Musician’s Guild. This past November 6th, 7th, 10th and 18th the SD community was treated to a series of celebrations at Queen Bees Art & Cultural Center showcasing some of the regions hottest bites, beverages, and bad a$$ entertainment.
Random Radio headlined the opening ceremony on Night 1 with This One’s For The Girls. (A tribute to music’s famous females) Dressed to honor their favorite leading ladies of past and present yelpers indulged on food samples from Berkeley Pizza, Devine Pastabilities, The Foundry, Lucha Libre Gourmet Taco Shop, The Abbey Catering and Event Design and Zico Coconut Water. While the band covered popular hits an array of art was displayed throughout the walls and a live hula hoop performance additionally saw everyone shaking their hips.
The buzz continued on Night 2 when Caliber came through gracing all with an eclectic array of cover tunes for the Battle Of The Band T’s. Rocking out while rocking their favorite band t-shirt, guests of this evening were able to enjoy tastes of Berkeley Pizza, Capriottis, Devine Pastabilities, Dirty Birds, Lucha Libre Gourmet Taco Shop, Slater's 50/50, RUST General Store, and Zico Coconut Water.
Night 3 was equally local with a Californication theme that featured The Red Not Chili Peppers and attire that was so SoCal. The only thing about as smoking hot as this tribute band was the samples supplied by Devine Pastabilities, Dirty Birds, Lucha Libre Gourmet Taco Shop, Slater's 50/50, West Coast Tavern and Zico Coconut Water.
Rounding out the rambunctiousness, Science Fiction jazzed up the music scene playing for the Sci-Fi Friday finale. Releasing every inner childhood fantasy in the form of an outfit, guests said a farewell to Yelp’s Local Buzz in the form of delicious food styling’s from The Abbey Catering and Event Design, Berkeley Pizza, The Foundry, Lucha Libre Gourmet Taco Shop, RUST General Store, and Slater's 50/50. Totally buzzed and full bellied it was an excellent way to wind down an awesome two weeks.
