4 Food and Beer Events to Get You out of the May Gray Funk

Brighten up your week with poke, lobster, softball, craft beer, and tacos at these fun food events


Published:

San Diego Taco Fest

Nevermind what the sun thinks, spring is here. You can beat the May gray by upping your seafood, softball, and craft beer consumption. We've got just the right opportunities for that, taking place in the next week. 

 

Beerfest & Over-the-Line Tournament

Where: Mariner’s Point park, Mission Bay
When: May 19-20, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Beach, beer, and softball—three good things that aren’t often experienced at exactly the same time. Except during OMBAC's Beerfest and Over-the-Line Tournament, a two-day softball tournament held on the sand at Mission Bay’s Mariner’s Point, featuring food trucks, beer, and spirits from the likes of BNS Brewing, Bay City Brewing, OB Brewery, Alesmith, Coronado Brewing, Thorn Brewing, Mason Aleworks, and Cutwater Spirits.

(This weekend tourney featuring 120 teams in various divisions is not to be confused with the World Championship Over-the-Line-Tournament held in July.)

Admission is $35 with advance online purchase on Eventbrite.

 

Lobster Week at Beerfish

Where: Beerfish
When: Until May 19, from 11:30 a.m. until sold out

New day, new chef-created lobster menu. That’s the theme of Lobster Week at the no-frills North Park seafood destination Beerfish this week. Every day a new chef will prepare sustainable fresh Maine lobster in their style of choosing and pair with a different craft beer. Each day’s menu is available for $17 beginning at 11:30 a.m. until sold out.

The chef lineup is as follows:

  • May 15: Antonio Ley and José Rodrigo Figueroa of Corazon de Torta/La Carmelita, with SouthNorte Beer Company
  • May 16: Juan Carlos Récamier of Ceviche House, with Thorn Brewing Co.
  • May 17: Karen Barnett of Small Bar, with Burning Beard Brewing
  • May 18: Mike Arquines of Mostra Coffee, with Modern Times Beer Co.
  • May 19: Tyson Blake of O’Brien’s Pub, with Eppig Brewing

 

San Diego Taco Fest

Where: Waterfront Park
When: May 19, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Nothing says San Diego quite like eating tacos with a view of the bay. Head to Waterfront Park this weekend for live music, Mexican wrestling, Chihuahua races, and—most importantly—tacos from thirty local eateries. Participating restaurants include Tamarindo, Salud, Lucha Libre, City Tacos, Lolita's, and more. Come hungry, leave full of tacos.

Tickets are $30-35 and do not include food and drink. 

 

I Love Poke Festival

Where: Bali Hai  
When: May 22, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Poke-lovers take note: For one price, you can try poke from 30 different chefs and restaurants including Island Life Foods, Bali Hai, Sweetfin Poke, Surf Side Deli, and The Lanai. The I Love Poke Festival offers that unlikely option as part of its celebration of Hawaiian food and culture. Bites, music, and dancing, all come with a $75 ticket; drinks priced separately.
