Where to Stay, What to do?

I am very excited that I have so many friends coming from out of town for the holidays, from L.A. to the U.K., I can't wait to see you all! Of course everyone is asking me about where to stay and what to do while is San Diego.

There are hundreds of hotels in San Diego, but if you want to try something special, consider a room at Hotel Solamar in downtown San Diego. This four star boutique hotel features all of the luxurious accomadations you can think of, (this is where the celebrities stay) and it's located right in the heart of San Diego. I have a connection there, so let me know if you are interested, we'll hook you up!

Several people have asked me what's going on for New Years Eve? I've done a little research and these are some options I'm considering so far;

Times Square West
West Coast’s Premier New Year’s Eve Extravaganza
Hyatt Regency La Jolla at Aventine, 7pm - 2am
Tickets: $135 per person (general admission), $150 for reserved table seating, $249 for premier dinner seating
Dance, eat, celebrate and enjoy. The ninth annual Times Square West Celebration at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla at Aventine is the West Coast’s Premier New Year’s Eve Extravaganza. This event has become a tradition - our version of NYC's Times Square. It even features its own mini-version of the countdown clock and ball that descends from the Hyatt Aventine's tower. Euge Groove, Peter White, Richard Elliot and Oli Silk in the Grand Ballroom will be performing individual sets prior to midnight and together as the Times Square West All Stars after midnight.

Big Night San Diego
Sheraton San Diego Hotel and Marina, 1380 Harbor Island
Sunday, December 31, 2007, 9:00 pm - 2:00 am
Tickets: $109.99 per person (advance purchase, all-inclusive, 21 and up only). VIP tickets also available
This event has become popular with young adults because of its size and the price is all-inclusive of food and drink. Big Night features 12 party areas including casino and Mardi Gras areas, six dance floors, party bands and DJs. No big name bands, but lots of partying and dancing.

Gaslamp Restaurants
Various times and prices
If a nice dinner and festive atmosphere are more your speed, and you don't want to be locked into one enclosed space, the restaurants of the Gaslamp Quarter is your best bet. Virtually all of the venues have some sort of New Year's Eve package, and you can take in the revelry of Fifth Avenue as well.

The Brotherhood's New Years Eve Party
Dec. 31 at The Abbey, 2825 Fifth Avenue, San Diego, CA 92103
9 pm. $25, $50 VIP
This one sounds interesting, it's a retro '80s party so dig down deep in your closets, shop the local thrift stores, and bring back the 80's for one night. You bring the costumes, and the promoters will take care of the rest. Local DJ's who have had such a great success with club "Decade" playing the hits and rarities of the 80's will be providing the soundtrack. Tickets are available on-line only.

If you know of another fun New Years Eve event in the San Diego area, please let me know!
