Oldie and newbies

Let our Hit List guide your nighttime activities

By Alex Zaragoza
hitlist DJ Justin Jay
It’s always exciting when a new bar or nightclub opens. Even though our old stand-by bars fit like the worn-out pajama pants we’ve had since college, those same pajamas sometimes make us look like a slob. So if you want to try something new, here are a couple of options.

There are plenty of breweries in San Diego, but Belching Beaver Brewery (4223 30th St. in North Park, belchinbeaver.com) has one thing the others don’t have— and if you don’t know what it is yet, you’re blind. A name like that is going to get some attention, so stop in to see if their brewskis warrant it. The Beav started off in Vista and opened its second tasting room here last month. Make note: Wednesday through Friday, pints are $1 off from 3 to 6 p.m.

Bang Bang (526 Market St.) is the latest addition to the Downtown party scene, and with a name like that, it should fit right in perfectly. There’s already a full line-up of DJs on the bar’s calendar. Kudos to Bang Bang for coming out of the gate with a, well, bang. On Friday, July 26, L.A.-based electronic-music duo Bixel Boys will bring the ruckus to your tuchus. The following night electronic DJ Justin Jay will be in the house, making sure you exit stage left covered in sweat.

Remember when I mentioned old favorites? Well here’s one for all you smooth-sailing parrot heads out there. On Saturday, July 27, park your schooner outside of Whistle Stop (2236 Fern St. in South Park) for Yacht Rock V: Still So Smooth. From 5 to 8 p.m., DJs Claire and Ascot will be spinning the songs that your parents made sweet love to in front of a roaring fire. Nautical attire is very much encouraged. If your PJs have anchors on them, you’re stoked. If you have some shag carpeting lying around the house, you should probably bring that, too.
