By Alex Zaragoza
In this space, I like to have an overarching theme so that anyone who's into one of the events has two other options that may also pique their interest. It's like Pandora.

Guiltless partying

Let our Hit List guide your nighttime activities

By Alex Zaragoza
Waking up after a night of raging, one often feels a tad unfulfilled. Other than a hangover and a stranger snoring next to you in bed, what was the point of all that?

Love in the club

Let our Hit List guide your nighttime activities

By Alex Zaragoza
If you’re anything like me, Valentine’s Day won’t be spent on a bearskin rug in front of a crackling fireplace. It won’t even involve drinking a combination of red wine and salted lonely tears.

Battle of the bands

Let our Hit List guide your nighttime activities

By Alex Zaragoza
In the movie Pulp Fiction, Mia Wallace, as played by Uma Thurman, says there are two kinds of people in the world: Elvis people and Beatles people. Someone can like both, but never in the same amount. This is a test that reveals a lot about a person.

Shake your rump

Let our Hit List guide your nighttime activities

By Alex Zaragoza
Dancing is a hell of a drug. Maybe it’s because I’m a somewhat young woman who enjoys a good groove, but hitting a dance floor after a long, stressful week has some sort of healing effect on me.

Let our Hit List guide your nighttime activities

By Alex Zaragoza
Recently, a good friend asked me which bars and clubs are cool places to hang in Chula Vista. Despite being from “The Chul,” as no one but me calls it, I was at a loss for good ideas.

Jazz it up

Let our Hit List guide your nighttime activities

By Alex Zaragoza
The last few weeks have been pretty stressful. Christmas, the Mayan apocalypse and then New Year's Eve were all major events. (OK, so the apocalypse turned out to be not so major.)

New Year’s Eve stragglers

Let our Hit List guide your nighttime activities

By Alex Zaragoza
Last week, we wrestled down a major project, our annual New Year’s Eve Guide—or, as I refer to it, the Stress-Induced Nightmare-Causing Guide. We listed a whopping 100 parties, dinners and shows, but, as it usually goes, there were some events that came in late.
