    Apr 18, 16 • CarMama • UncategorizedNo CommentsRead More »

    The Festival of Beers, now in it’s 9th year, is the perfect marriage of two of San Diego’s best known exports — music and craft beer.   San Diego is one of the most dynamic beer cities in the United States, arguably the world, with a diversity of style and technique that is unmatched.  With the participation of the El Cajon Boulevard Business Improvement Association, community business owners and local brewers and performances from local bands who match the brewers in diversity and dynamism, this event has grown into the Foundation’s largest single event fundraiser and helps keep participatory music programs active in our communities. The mission of the San Diego Music Foundation is to enrich San Diego’s diverse and creative music community through music education for youth, professional development for current and emerging industry professionals, live performances for the San Diego public, and recognition for San Diego artists of exceptional merit or service. Chartered in 1991, the San Diego Music Foundation was created to make music performance accessible to children of need in San Diego County by providing them with a hands-on vehicle, the guitar, to express themselves creatively. Over its 20+ year history, the organization has served over 60,000 K-12 students county-wide from San Onofre to San Ysidro. In subsequent years the organization has broadened its focus and service areas, providing forums to increase local musicians’ understanding of the music business,

  • Villa Montezuma – One of Sherman Heights Historical Gems

    Sep 14, 15 • CarMama • Neighborhood InformationNo CommentsRead More »

    It is described as a glorious example of eclectic late 19th century Victorian/Queen Anne architecture, a crown jewel of the era which earned it a historical site standing by the city of San Diego in 1970, just in the nick of time, as it was in sad shape on the outside, really in need of renovation! Today Villa Montezuma is used as not only a historical house museum, but offers changing exhibits, is used as a community cultural center and on occasion is the setting for weddings and receptions. Built upon a hill, it has two stories, with a partial basement with an authentic, recreated turn-of-the-century kitchen, multipurpose room and storage areas. On the south side of the mansion, one finds the tower room, complete with an Arabesque dome, which can be found via a staircase on the second floor. It was Shepard’s study as it had a magnificent, panoramic view from San Diego to Point Loma and south to Mexico, a source of inspiration for Shepard’s creative composing and writing. Floors throughout the mansion were made of polished fir, which were covered with Turkish and Persian rugs when Jesse lived there. The bottom half of the walls are made of polished redwood and walnut, while wallpaper such as pink fleur-de-lis designs enhance the top part of the walls. Ceilings have silvery gray to white Lincrusta Walton . There are

  • Vintage Flea Market

    I came across something new that I haven’t blogged about before and I’m excited for you vintage lovers out there! Coming at the end of this month, on June 28th, 2015 is the Vintage Flea Market San Diego. According to the website, “The San Diego Vintage Flea Market is a great way for folks to sell and purchase interesting vintage or vintage-inspired treasures. All vintage pieces are true to the era of turn of the century to midcentury modern. Our vendors offer home furnishings, bric-a-brac, clothing, and so much more – vintage-inspired items, pin-up/rockabilly style clothing and accessories, tiki infused items along with vintage-inspired music promotion. It’s all here at the San Diego Vintage Flea Market!” “To many, the term “vintage” is a wide range of definitions. It could be anything older than 20 years. To some if could be anything prior to the Midcentury Modern era. And to others, there are different terms coined that represent the vintage era, such as antique and retro. Vintage is your own take on it and how you would like to label it. The San Diego Vintage Flea Market is such a great way to meet other Vintage Enthusiasts such as yourself. Every one of the vendors that joins the market brings their own knowledge in such a wide spectrum to the vintage community. All are very welcoming to any questions you might have
