Culture Lust Weekend Recommendations

I love waking up on Fridays with the promise of the weekend looming. If you're reading this over your morning coffee, here are some suggestions to plan your weekend.

Today is California Arts Day! Lots of museums and arts organizations are offering free or reduced admission today. You can get into MCASD for free all day! Here's a list of the organizations participating.


The opening reception of Cereal Killer takes place this Friday at Subtext. It features the clever work of illustrator Patrick Ballesteros, who sends Sugar Bear on a killing rampage.

Sculptor Elizabeth Turk will be at the Lux Art Institute until Sunday, so if you want to see how this tiny woman does the "man work" of carving marble you have to head up to Encinitas. If you miss her, you can still see her work on exhibit through October 31st.

If you need your annual fix of suspendered men who clog, bratwurst, and hearty mugs of beer, head over to Oktoberfest in La Mesa.

The Emerge Dance Festival takes place this Saturday night - for one night only. The festival showcases up-and-coming choreographic talent in San Diego. You'll see the future of dance in our region.

And finally, it's the last weekend of Trolley Dances. Grab some friends and spend your Saturday afternoon riding the trolley to the border and seeing interesting dance along the way. Here's a little taste of what you'll see...

Happy weekend, Culture Lusters!
