Digable art walk

The Barrio Art Crawl event just keeps getting bigger and better. This month’s stroll through the ever-growing Barrio Arts District includes open doors at La Esquina (2222 Logan Ave.), a cool little urban infill project we wrote about in our Design Issue earlier this year. The inhabitants of La Esquina are mostly artists, designers, students and professors from nearby architecture schools. You can get to know them and invited artists and musicians at an open house, which includes artwork by David White and Patrick Shield, live music by Bulletproof Tiger and Tijuana’s IOB, $1 tacos by Taco Victor and more. The art- and design-inspired shenanigans go down from 7:30 to 10:30,Saturday, Aug. 30.

Digable golf


The Loma Club (2960 Truxton Road in Point Loma, formerly the Sail Ho Golf Course) is bucking bougie golf course trend by making the green fun for folks who don't know a putter from a 9 iron. The nine-hole course holds its last Glow in the Dark Golf of the summer on Friday, Aug. 29. Tee-off is at 8 p.m. (with check-in at 6:30 p.m.) and the $26 per person fee includes equipment and glow-in-the-dark tchotchkes. Or, show up Saturday, Aug. 30, for Beer and Nine starting at 3 p.m., where $30 gets you a round of golf, four tastings of Ballast Point beer and two sample cocktails featuring Fugu Vodka. Because nothing helps your golf game like booze. Call 619-222-4653 to reserve a spot at either event. 

Digable to-do


The world’s top sandcastle artists—or, *ahem* sand sculptors—face-off this weekend in the U.S. Sand Sculpting Challenge and 3D Art Exposition. Last year, the appropriately named Sandis Kondrats of Latvia took home the grand prize, unseating the 2012 champion, American Rusty Croft. Will the U.S. reclaim the title this year? From Friday, Aug. 29, through Monday, Sept. 1, head over to the B Street cruise ship terminal pier (1140 North Harbor Drive) to check out the work of sand artists from as far away as Singapore. The event includes live entertainment, food vendors, a giant sandbox for kids and, if you show up on Saturday, a chance to vote for your fave finished work. One-day admission is $10 for adults and $7 for kids under 12. Four-day all-access passes are $18 for adults and $12 for kids.

Digable family fest


A nautical celebration featuring historical ships, real cannon fire (minus the ammunition) and sunset cruises takes over the Embarcadero this weekend. The 2014 Festival of Sail kicks off Thursday, Aug. 28, at 11 a.m. with a parade of tall ships and runs through Monday, Sept. 1. Along the waterfront this weekend, you'll find more than 150 vendors and the chance to tour historic vessels, watch an old-timey maritime battle reenactment featuring Civil War cannons or take a bay tour in a swift boat. The heart of it all is the Maritime Museum (1492 North Harbor Drive). Ticket prices range from $7 for adults ($5 for kids) for boat tours to $65 for adults (kiddos, $40) to be on one of the battleships. Check out the event website for the full schedule.
