Pin It

Spit or Swallow 

Wednesday, Jun 25 2008
Wine snobs are different than you and me -- they have more money. At Pinot Days Grand Festival, $65 allows you to pick the brains of the industries biggest players and get drunk enough to forget everything, should you decide to go that route. Today’s public tasting features more than 400 pinots from 170 producers from all the right areas (California, Oregon, New Zealand, and Burgundy), and those who collect “bottles” will no doubt be interested in smaller tastings with local wineries. You liked that guy in Sideways, right? He was into pinot. We bet you are, too

  • Arcade Fire at Shoreline
    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.
  • Comic Con 2014

    Comic book enthusiasts, Cosplayers, TV and movie fans, and celebrities descended to sunny San Diego for the annual gathering at Comic-Con International.

    Whether hitting up a panel to check out The Simpson's announcement of a cross over with Family Guy or Futurama. Or hearing a new movie with Sam Raimie based on a video game or accidentally rubbing shoulders with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) in cosplay, being a cosplayer, San Diego Comic-Con is the place to be.
