We at So Diego Tours love, love, Love food! We love sharing our passion for food with you on our Brothels, Bites, and Booze and Tequila, Tacos, and Tombstones tours that give you samples of our favorites from the Gaslamp Quarter and Old Town. That’s why we love the chance to spread the word about more ways to indulge your taste buds! So even though it may not be great for you bikini body it’s totally worth a day (or three) of indulgence! Here’s some info about some fantastic upcoming food festivals:
Come really, really hungry to this one! For a $30 ticket you get the chance to sample menu specialties from any–or all, if you’re an eating champion–of the more than 30 participating venues in the Gaslamp Quarter. This event is a Fundraiser to benefit the Gaslamp Quarter Association, the non-profit merchants association of the Gaslamp Quarter. Proceeds enhance and protect this historic district, so come show your support of our local community simply by sampling amazing food!
Oysterfest is more than just oysters. There will be more than 16 beers to choose from to complement oysters from all down the west coast from British Columbia to Mexico. If beer isn’t your thing… wine, cocktails and good music are all available as well. In between the musical acts, there will be teams competing in “Shuck and Chuck” competitions, cooking demonstrations from celebrity chefs and information about oyster farming in California. General admission is $25.
And last but not least, Rhythm and Vine, where even if you don’t have rhythm, the wine and good music provided by Crossroads will make you feel like you do. This event will feature 35 world-class wineries, spirits and breweries, 20 restaurants and gourmet food, and live music. Chef Brian Malarkey will guest host. So Diego Tours will also be participating in this amazing music and wine festival, partnered with Rock Bottom Brewery and our favorite brewmaster, Jason Stockberger.

We hope you get out there and enjoy all the culinary delights San Diego has to offer!
