Tony Duquette Hutton Wilkinson Jewelry

1. More is More

This “Floral Wreath” Necklace is part of the all-jewelry ex- hibit, More is More: Tony Duquette Hutton Wilkinson Jewelry, opening at the Gemological Institute of America HQ in Carlsbad. The Duchess of Windsor (Wallace Simpson!) is said to have commis- sioned Duquette to create a wreath based on this one, making it accept- able to wear gold— not platinum—after 5 p.m. October 10–March 2014

Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure San Diego

2. Powerful in Pink

Breast Cancer Awareness Month is big business. But instead of buying a pink lipstick, we’d rather get out in our city. A series of events benefiting Susan G. Komen for the Cure San Diego will take place throughout the month. The kick-off (October 5) is Bras Across the Bay and involves pink cocktails and live music aboard Flagship Cruise’s California Spirit. Other events range from Survivor Crop, a 24-hour scrapbooking party in Vista, to Row for the Cure, an annual regatta on Mission Bay, and culminate with the 17th annual Race for the Cure, November 3 in Balboa Park. Money raised goes to mammograms, surgeries, meal deliveries, and more in San Diego County. Don’t forget to wear pink.

Solid gold kero

3.The Sun God Drank Beer

Actually, his descendant, the leader of all the Inca, drank corn beer from this solid gold kero. As you’ll learn at the San Diego Museum of Man’s fascinating BEERology, beer dates back more than 10,000 years. The liquid has been used as cur- rency, medicine, and suste- nance (Amazonian men drank four gallons a day). “All these different cultures—the thing they have in common is beer,” says curator Rex Garniewicz. Check for scheduled tastings. Through Summer 2014.

4. House Whiskey!

Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa’s food and bev team flew to Tennessee to select their very own Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Whiskey. Taste it at their Whiskey & Wine BBQ October 24 and see Estancia’s new Trinitas Cellars Wine Bar. $50 per person; $200 for two and take home a bottle (they’ll engrave it so you can gift it).

5. Ambush on the Port

Gallerists, boutique owners, and artists will take over Broadway Pier at Port Pavilion October 19. Exhibit Ambush Phase 2 is a walk-through interac- tive event and seated fashion show where guests can view art, “extreme set design,” and special effects make-up. Expect a DJ-loving crowd looking for inspiration, and say hello to fashion designer Jesus Estrada (a participant in Project Runway season 7) and Leslie Hughes from The Bachelor season 17, both in attendance. Best part of all? This ambush benefits Susan G. Komen for the Cure San Diego. 1000 North Harbor Drive, $40

FALL SEASON FOOD ALERT! After 50 years in Santa Ysabel, Dudley’s Bakery has decided to expand, with a new store in Santee. And look for Dudley’s new fruit bar flavor: Apple, Walnut, Cinnamon. We’re told it “tastes like the top of an apple muffin.” Delish.
