Historic houses, farm-fresh food and more cool events

Our weekly Red List roundup

Digable to-do


Immerse yourself in one of San Diego’s coolest neighborhoods when the community of South Park holds its 14th annual 
Old House Fair, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, June 16. The free, family-friendly festival will be held at 30th and Beech streets, where there’ll be food, music, pet adoptions, kids’ arts and crafts activities, plus exhibits by craftspeople, historically-minded contractors and local merchants. Various tours of South Park will be offered, including a self-guided walk or bike excursion; free, guided walking tours; a $5, one-hour trolley tour; and a $20 Historic Home Tour, which will feature five houses that you’ll probably wish you called home. Find details about the tours and the exhibitors, and buy tickets, at theoldhousefair.weebly.com.


Digable eats
It’s summer time at Bo-Beau, and executive Chef Katherine Humphus is lightening up the bistro’s fare every Wednesday with fresh finds from the Ocean Beach Farmer’s Market. The resulting three-course vegetarian dinner costs $30 and features fresh produce in original creations by Humphus. Sample dishes include a starter of sea beans, sesame and pickled fresh almonds; a barley, fennel, radish and broccoli spigarello entree; and for dessert, a fresh-baked croissant a la mode with charred peaches and apricot jam by Jackie’s Jams. From June 30 to July 22, Bo-Beau hosts the Sip Cycle, a wine-tasting tribute to the Tour de France. Throughout the tour, $10 wine flights and $15 cheese plates correspond with cyclists’ geographic locations. Begin in Belgium the first week with beer, cider and Champagne. Check Bo-Beau's website for additional menu info.



Digable flicks 
So what that How to Stuff a Wild Bikini wasn't a hit with the critics. One of the weirder entries in the Frankie & Annette series (Annette was preggers and Frankie barely makes an appearance in the film as a punishment for demanding too much money), the film's plot involves Frankie enlisting the help of a witch doctor to keep the guys away from his girl Dee Dee (Annette Funicello) while he's stationed overseas. As always, there are bikinis, cheesy songs and plenty of homage to 1960s California beach culture. Wild Bikini screens at 8 p.m. Thursday, June 14, as part of the Lafayette Hotel's Poolside Movie Series (Muscle Beach Party screens June 21). Cost is $3 per person, $5 for couples, and proceeds benefit the El Cajon Boulevard Association.



Digable combo 
If aliens were to swoop down on civilization and pick up any old comic strip of Cathy, what would they think of womankind? Well, for starters, they’d learn that we love wine, cheese and chocolate. Perhaps this is why the Women’s Museum of California is raising money through a Wine, Cheese and Chocolate Festival on Friday, June 15, at Balboa Park’s Spanish Village. The $40 ticket ($35 with promo code CBMAY) grants attendees six wine tastings and six food tastings (including treats like Frost Me cupcakes, picture left), and therefore 12 exclamations of “Oh my God, this is sooo yummy!” If you’re worried about the calories you’ll be inhaling with gusto, Sue Palmer, affectionately known as San Diego’s “Queen of Boogie Woogie,” will be bringing her funky sounds for you to shake your groove thing. The party starts at 6:30 p.m.
