So this post is on a few things I’ve done recently around San Diego that I would recommend and thought you might enjoy as well! This post is dedicated to showing some love to my home town !
I love cooking classes! And the ones I love the most are those that actually allow you to do some cooking. Classes where I get to help make the meal seem to stick with me so much more. My boyfriend and I just took a class at Sir La Table that we both loved!
Here are the pros:
1. Great facility where everyone is close enough to see/hear everything and comfortably ask questions throughout the class
2. Transferable skills are taught and emphasized
3. Knowledgeable chef who was personable and a very good teacher
4. You actually cook the meal yourself!
I’ve taken a few classes over the years, but this has been my favorite thus far. If you have also taken a cooking class that you love, please comment below. I’m always on the lookout for more!
I mean who doesn’t love to laugh?! In January we went to a comedy show at the Tipsy Crow downtown presented by Mal Hall and had such a great time! The show happens twice a month on Friday evenings.
The pros of this place were:
1. A variety of comedians (variety was the spice of life that night! )
2. Funny without ridiculing anyone in the crowd (some people may like this, but for me–not so much)
3. The environment was nice – cozy and comfortable. It was in the basement of the bar–brick walls on each side of us, round tables to sit at, low lighting, and an elevated, spot-lit stage
3. Easy and convenient location (so I am biased on this one because this is just a short cab ride from my home)
Any comedy shows you would recommend?
I had never taken a photography class prior to this past December, even though it is something I’ve been wanting to do for some time. Luckily, on our first try we found a class that we both really enjoyed and plan to go back for more. The class was given by Jason Kirby of the Right Light Studios and you can look up their list of classes offered here.
1. Useful and easy to grasp instruction
2. Engaging and hands-on (you practice the elements you learn at the end of the class)
3. A variety of classes that are tailored to your level of experience (beginner to advanced) that look practical, enjoyable, and interesting (example: there’s a class focused on travel photography that sparked my interest)
So, as much as we definitely recommend this class and very much enjoyed it, I recognize that I don’t have a lot of experience in this area. I’d love to hear from others–what photography classes would you recommend?
I plan to spotlight more great things to do in my city, but if you also have suggestions of things to do, please feel free to share!
