Letter from the Editor: Is It Summer Yet?

Editor in Chief Erin Meanley Glenny dishes on the May issue of San Diego Magazine


Del Mar Racetrack

Most of us can agree that Memorial Day Weekend is the unofficial start of the season known for outdoor musicals and staying late for the extra innings at Petco Park. That’s why we decided to run a Summer Bucket List in May—because the best way to get the most out of your season is to plan ahead, whether that means hitting the fair on opening weekend, scoring tickets to Harry Potter at Bayside Summer Nights, or getting access to a pop-up museum about avocados (yes, that’s happening).

But having a plan doesn’t mean you have to stick to tradition. Yes, we’ve always had the Padres, but there’s also a new professional sports team in town: In this issue, meet the rugby players of the San Diego Legion. Sure, the races have been going on for 79 years, but have you ever been to a morning workout with the horses? For the cover story, the editorial team used our collective, intimate knowledge of the various events and venues—I worked at the Del Mar Fair for seven summers, starting in eighth grade—to show you the best way to maximize the fun.

We’re also uncovering all things new in one of the most talked-about San Diego subjects: craft beer. In “The 27 Coolest Things...,” we report on the brews flowing into South Bay, the women behind the scenes (meet a craft beer attorney!), and a favorite brewery opening a vegan restaurant.

Finally, in this issue I’m resurrecting Joyce Glazer’s Celebrating Women column. I didn’t want to see it go after her retirement. This month, I interviewed the new president of Schubach Aviation, Kimberly Herrell, about ascending the ladder and being a working mom. In the spirit of multitasking, I suggested a walk-and-talk interview: Instead of ladies who lunch, we would be women who walk. Kim showed up in gold tennis shoes and took me on a tour around her hangar. I got to go inside a private jet, and she got to see a nearby park she had always wanted to explore. We also got our steps in and got a dose of vitamin D.

Here’s to doing things differently. Happy (almost) summer!
