Talk: San Diego Obsessions

5 trends in San Diego this month


Published:

Luxury Therapy

1. Capsule Collection

This month, La Jolla’s Madison Gallery welcomes London-based artist Mauro Perucchetti and his exhibition, The Power of Love. The artist creates lighthearted works with a hint of social commentary. Example: Luxury Therapy (pictured) is a composition of resin pills encapsulating Swarovski crystals. August 24–September 24, 1020 Prospect Street

Old Town Theatre

2. Sondheim in the House

If the name “Stephen Sondheim” hasn’t been on your lips since he wrote the lyrics for West Side Story in 1957, get with it. His Tony Award-winning musical Into the Woods, which debuted here at the Old Globe in 1986, will be adapted for the big screen in 2014 starring Johnny Depp and Meryl Streep. Meantime, his 1970 musical Company, about single 35-year-old Bobby who can’t commit, was one of the first musicals to deal with adult relationships and is playing at Cygnet’s Old Town Theatre now through August 18. Get to know Sondheim again. You’ll be in good company. cygnettheatre.com

Girl on the Go! Night Spa

3.Night Spa

What working woman has time for a mani-pedi on a weekday? And who wants to get waxed during lunch? Girl on the Go! Night Spa (830 25th Street, Golden Hill) came up with the genius idea to stay open until 10 p.m. on weekdays and 6 p.m. on the weekends. It offers organic skincare, waxing, massage, acupuncture, manicures, pedicures, and airbrush tanning. It’s a beauty of an idea.

4. Home Brewers, Pitcher This!

Ballast Point and the Padres are holding their second annual home brew contest, with entries due at the Home Brew Mart in Linda Vista by August 3. (Be sure to read the rules—no sours! No 8 percent ABV, either.) The winning brew will be produced and sold at Ballast Point locations, and its maker will get to throw the first pitch at the Padres–Pirates game August 19. padres.com/homebrew

Who doesn’t love an excuse to get a babysitter and go out for dinner? San Diego’s first annual
Dine Out for the Cure (August 28–29) benefits Susan G. Komen, San Diego. Visit komensandiego.org/dineout2013 for participating restaurants.
Fitwall

5. Wall Workouts

With all the boot camp, barre, and boxing workouts out there, it’s easy to be skeptical about a new fitness trend. But Josh Weinstein, CEO of the new La Jolla gym Fitwall, isn’t worried. “We offer strength, flexibility, and cardio,” he says. “Where else can you get all three in 40 minutes?” The workout is done vertically on a wall, using more balance and muscle than exercises done on the floor. The gym’s 15 walls are equipped with iPads, giving you instant feedback on how hard you’re working. Weinstein plans to expand to Del Mar, Hillcrest, and other neighborhoods; then beyond to L.A., NYC, Boulder, and Portland. Be the first to climb aboard. 7710 Fay Avenue —Claire Trageser
