‘Happy People: A Year in the Taiga’ is more about its subjects than it is about the director’s experiences

By Anders Wright
Herzog’s take on a subject is always unique, because he usually brings a camera someplace very strange, like, say, Antarctica, Death Row or a French cave full of ancient paintings, and simply records what he sees, eventually cutting together an oddball view of a small part of the world.

A pin-up pop-up, a beer-filled block party and more to do this week

Our weekly Red List round-up

Digable beerFor years, the building just across the parking lot from CityBeat’s office in North Park was home to a sleepy old Christian bookstore. Not anymore.

While the tasting room has been open for less than two years, the brewery’s been in business now for four years, and Hess will celebrate the milestone with a shindig featuring its own great beer plus beer from 11 other San Diego brewers; food from Coin-Op, Crazee Burger, O’Brien’s Pub, Sicilian Pizza Thing, Smoke House Kings, Toronado, URBN and Waypoint Public; and a couple of live bands. A $40 ticket gets unlimited beer samples and four food samples starting at 12:30 p.m. A $55 ticket gets the same plus access to a VIP party inside the tasting room—where folks can taste Hess’ Grazias beer “dosed” 10 different ways by other local brewers—from noon to 1:30 p.m. ...
