Encinitas Street Fair this Weekend
The iconic Encinitas Streetfair is this weekend. A stunning 100,000 visitors are expected. I've loved the Streetfair ever since I was a kid even though it's not as rootsy as it used to be. Ignore the traveling corpo vendors and seek out the local artisans this weekend like my photographer friend Maggie Marsek who will be selling fine prints at her booth.

*I wish the city of Encinitas would let Leucadia use the coast highway for it's Art Walk event. Isn't closing down the entire downtown Encinitas 101 highway the ultimate "choke point"? Yet we always seem to be able to survive the weekend. *sigh*
**note-Dody Tucker from DEMA is looking for volunteers to help with the Big Grill 1pm – 5pm on Saturday. So if you have mad bar-b-que skills contact her at 760-943-1950
