Get stoned and go see 'Super Troopers 2'

Get stoned and go see 'Super Troopers 2'

Any movie theater
Look, is it slightly cliche that a stoner cult classic comedy film is releasing its sequel on 4/20? Yeah, sure, maybe. Should you care? No. There are few comedies as rewatchable as Super Troopers, and while the sequel probably won’t be Citizen Kane, but you should take advantage of California’s wonderful marijuana laws and see this flick on opening night in an altered state.
What it costs: Go to your local theater and look at the prices; you don’t have to be a genius to figure this one out.

Music Box
When the new generation of hip-hop messiahs are discussed -- the J. Coles, the Kendricks, the Drakes -- one name that’s often inexplicably left off the list is Big K.R.I.T., and that’s a shame. K.R.I.T.’s lyrical and production capabilities are every bit as technical as the aforementioned trio, and he imbues his live shows with a booming sense of Southern bass and percussion. Seeing him at Music Box will be worth every penny.

Lane Field
There might be no better comfort food in the world than mac and cheese -- and when it’s paired with live music, over 60 different types of craft beer, and views of the Bay at the San Diego Mac & Cheese Beerfest, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better combination.
What it costs: $35

Embarcadero Marina Park South
Take everything I just wrote about the Mac & Cheese Beerfest, but replace “mac & cheese” and “beer” with “tacos” and “tequila” respectively. If combining a boatload of dairy, suds, and sunshine sounds like it might not be the most mellow experience for your stomach, give the Tequila and Taco Music Festival at the Embarcadero Marina Park South. And if you somehow can’t get down with either mac & cheese and beer or tacos and tequila, maybe re-examine your life.  
What it costs: $40

Bay City Brewing
Brewery yoga classes have become somewhat in vogue in San Diego, and one of our favorite breweries -- Bay City -- is getting in on the trend. They’ve teamed up with Hoppy Yoga to present a 75-minute yoga flow followed up by a complimentary pint in the brewery.

Quartyard
Jazz on Tap comes to the Quartyard downtown for a night of outdoor jazz concerts under the stars. All net proceeds from the night will go to support Water for People, an appropriately named charity working to provide clean drinking water to developing countries around the world.
What it costs: $10

Balboa Park
If there’s a major metropolitan city in the United States that has a clear reason to celebrate Earth Day and the spirit of conservation, it’s San Diego. So much of our city’s identity linked to our stunning landscapes, and you owe it to Mother Earth to join the tens of thousands of people who will attend EarthFair, the largest free annual environmental fair in the world. With 300 different exhibitors, there are a slew of organizations for you involve yourself with -- so, get involved.
What it costs: Free

Gaslamp
There are a slew of bar crawls going on within the city on any given weekend, and half of them are stupidly expensive and overcrowded; the Autism Awareness Crawl isn’t that. It only costs $20, gets you a complimentary drink at six Gaslamp bars, and all proceeds go to Include Autism. Dress up in your finest golf attire, and have a Sunday Funday for a good cause.
