I often don’t know what I’m doing on the weekend until it’s half-over, so I always appreciate the invitation from our friends at KPBS to come regale listeners with some of their options; it gets me excited for what’s coming up. Today, freelance arts journalist Seth Combs and I stopped in for a chat with Maureen Cavanaugh on KPBS’s Midday Edition. You can listen here.

If we pique your interest, here are some links so you can learn more about the things we mentioned:


• the continuing summer salon series “What does a city need?” at the San Diego Museum of Art (we visited the museum when the series kicked off earlier this summer; see clip below)


• grand openings at downtown’s Café Sevilla and Linda Vista’s redone The Griffin bar

Art vs. Science, The Hundred Days and Hyena at the Casbah


• the San Diego Soul Food Festival at Qualcomm Stadium


lantern festival and street fair in Little Saigon on El Cajon Boulevard

• photographer Charles “Flip” Nicklin’s exhibition of whale photographs accompanied by other photos and sculptures of whales
