This week’s special events in La Jolla and the San Diego area include a variety of Christmas concerts, ‘The Nutcracker’ ballet performances, holiday parties, arts & craft with Santa Claus, and Hanukkah happenings.
Is the real world getting a bit too crazy for you, during this ho-ho-ho-holiday season? Why not take a virtual reality break at the San Diego Art Institute (SDAI) in Balboa Park, which the folks from Wonderspaces have taken over for a month-long Virtual Reality Showcase. Wonderspaces is an annual pop-up show of immersive art installations that started out in San Diego in the summer of 2017 and has attracted thousands of visitors every year. Now they’re adding a little fall/winter show-time and offering a quartet of short VR films that have been audience favorites.
To commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Bird Rock Community Council (1994-2019), a whimsical mosaic starfish-themed chair was dedicated and installed in town on Thursday, Nov. 7, 2019.
Global thinking will be locally acted on Sunday, Dec. 15 and Tuesday, Dec. 17, when the La Jolla Theatre Ensemble (LJTE) presents “Lighting the Way” at La Jolla Community Center (LJCC).
As happy hour gatherings, celebrations with friends, and work festivities become centered on the holidays, various lounges and restaurants are offering seasonal beverages designed to elevate holiday routines. La Jolla menus reveal some clever and creative potions for anyone seeking to add more sparkle to their sips.
