Things to do in San Diego - Part 3

Thought I'd mention a few other artistic sorts of things to do in SD. We have season tickets to the San Diego Repertory Theatre (going to see "Ella" tonight). This is a great small theatre at the Lyceum at Horton Plaza, with some terrific productions and very reasonable rates for individual as well as season tickets.

We have gone to productions at the La Jolla Playhouse as well but have not yet purchased season tickets. Haven't seen enough there yet to know how good it is but they have an excellent reputation (located off Torrey Pines Road at UCSD).

We haven't been to the San Diego opera yet so can't comment.

We went to see Thievery Corporation at the 4th and B in the Gaslamp District in downtown San Diego. I thought it was a terrible venue (but then I am not 25), it was incredibly hot (we were there during the heatwave, it had to be over 90 in the room), and the group started 90 minutes late (and standing around for 2 hours even before the music started was a pain), but the music was terrific. We understand the Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach is good also for some off-beat kinds of music/groups but have yet to try it out (Pink Martini was there but we had already seen them at the Hollywood Bowl in LA - BTW this is terrific for a weekend get-away and it's only a 2 hour drive. A really outstanding outdoor venue in the summer; the 2-day Playboy Jazz Festival in June is great fun ). Any one been to any of these places??
