Binational culture hound Derrik Chinn and I descended on KPBS studios today to give you some ideas for what’s happening in San Diego this weekend. You can listen to our conversation with Midday Edition host Maureen Cavanaugh.

Here are some links to the things we talked about:

• I couldn’t let the opportunity slip past to highlight our upcoming Meeting of the Minds event next Wednesday. We’ve heard from more than 140 of you that you’ll come aboard the “7 Lemon” level of the parkade at Horton Plaza. See you then!

• Speaking of reclaiming unusual space, Derrik talked about a downtown alleyway that’s been converted into lofts and spaces for artists, designers and musicians to rent in Tijuana’s “Pasaje Gomez.” The Tijuana Art Walk happens there all day Saturday along the strip. (Susan Myrland wrote about one of the last art walks there a couple of months ago.)

• This is the final season for Moonlight Amphitheatre founder Kathy Brombacher, and North Coast Repertory Theatre’s David Ellenstein’s coming up to Vista to play Tevye in “Fiddler on the Roof.” We visited with Brombacher last year for a TV piece about the 30 years she spent at the helm.

• The San Diego Record Show happens Saturday for vinyl-philes, as Derrik called them.

• A giant, 36-hour event begins Friday morning at the San Diego Museum of Art as part of its dynamic Summer Salon Series. (You can take a nap if you get sleepy, or even go home and come back.) Check out a schedule and more info here. And KPBS has more details on the highlights of the event.

If you go: Make sure to grab a parking waiver from the museum when you arrive — guests for the 36-hour event will want to make sure their cars don’t get towed between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m., as is Balboa Park protocol.

• Talented local photographer, director and videographer Charles Bergquist will show new work at North County accessories shop UNIV accompanied by a performance by the band Little Deadman and food by MIHO’s “Stand and Deliver” operation.

These are six good picks, but we know there’s more happening out there this weekend. What do you plan to check out? Leave us a note below.
