One of my favorite Bay Area coffee companies is Barefoot, their cafe is located in San José and other than that +as far as I know (do tell if otherwise!) I can only find it in Epicenter Cafe, on Harrison near 4th in the South of Market district in San Francisco. So, this looks excellent. My last visit down to San Jose's coffee spots was posted here in 2009. Will certainly try to make it this weekend, we'll see.

Midwest transplant to Tijuana, Turista Libre, offers a great variety of trips and activities encouraging border tourism, and local flavor as the local he has become would.
Alongside the Baja beer fest event, this Bikes and beers tour, will be a win-win event.

All ages. Prices vary.
This is where the girls will play.

Well, Molotov. I can't wait to see your documentary and all but in Tijuana out of all places in Hank's Hipodromo?!... quite contradicts all the shit you talk about the people within the same politicurroption family, so curious – and because I had different expectations from your band, if you really talk your talk, or just pretend. Seems like a few things change when it comes to who pays/sponsors for your venue...

Throughout all of July, mostly FREE
Check out many of the free 30th anniversary events the CECUT is offering this month.
