San Diego Magazine’s Best of San Diego party is coming up this Friday, and I’ve got a special offer for all of you on tickets. But first, let me tell you a little about this party. Each year in their August edition, SD Mag features the best restaurants, businesses and activities in San Diego. Categories include Food & Drink, Arts & Culture, Beauty & Style, Kids, Things to Do, and Best of the City. The Best of San Diego Party is a celebration for the winners in each category. These winners then sample their food, beverage, activity, etc. at the party. To summarize, a party packed with all of the best things in San Diego. Plus live entertainment. It’s unreal.
I’ve gone to the Best of Party each year since 2009, and I’ve never been disappointed. So this year, I thought I’d gladly help promote the event. It’s a great opportunity to sample food from restaurants around San Diego. Continue reading for some photos from last year plus a special offer on tickets!!
Here’s the video of last year’s party:
