On June 27, don’t miss Sins of the Stingaree, where you’ll learn all you ever wanted to know about San Diego’s seedy Stingaree District while enjoying local bites and beer, wine, and cocktails and hearing local Gaslamp historian, Dr. Alex Stewart guide you through the neighborhood’s history and transformation.

  • Gaslamp Players in era-specific dress as reenactors
  • San Diego Police Museum: will be in attendance dressed in their turn-of-the 20th century garb and with a real-life paddy wagon!
  • Music: Progressive era music by Bach Collegium Ensemble
  • Food: MIHO Experience, serving Chicken & Waffles and Truffle Parmesan fries
  • Bar Service: Please & Thank you Liquor Bar featuring beer, wine, and craft cocktails!
