Hundreds of locals and tourists strolled Prospect Street and beyond Aug. 8 to enjoy the warm summer evening and partake of great deals at some of La Jolla’s top shops and restaurants. Billed by participating merchants as “La Jolla Nights,” the event was a celebration that included music, food and drinks, as well as the chance to mix and mingle.
