12:00 AM Tequila, Tacos, & Tombstones: Old Town Tour Explore the Birthplace of California and the events and people who have transformed Old Town San Diego into the cultural destination it is today. A tour guide will take you on a journey through the historical eras, from the early Spanish settlements to the establishment of Mexican Independence to the California Gold Rush.

With deep roots in the Mexican culture, Old Town San Diego is not only bursting with cultural flare but plenty of tequila to whet your appetite. While this is not a tequila tasting tour and we won't be consuming shot, we will be sampling a few customary cocktails during the Old Town tour. Sample authentic Mexican cuisine from a few favorite Old Town restaurants, including one voted Best Mexican Restaurant for over seven years!

Old Town didn't survive hundreds of years of history without adding a few ghost stories to its name. This Old Town tour takes you to one of the oldest graveyards in San Diego, where you will find out why the past still haunts the present. Stop by the Whaley House, named America's Most Haunted House by the Travel Channel and possibly encounter one of the ghostly spirits who still frequent this historic home. Take 10% off any regular tour with code "reader123."

7:30 PM Stage: The Year to Come Every New Year's Eve a family gathers in their Florida backyard to ring in the coming year. In between dips in the pool, politically incorrect banter and a highly-anticipated onion dip, their relationships grow and fracture in moments that become family legend. Unfolding backwards in time, The Year to Come shows how the promise of our future is shaped by the lens of our past. Rising playwright Lindsey Ferrentino introduces us to a distinctly American family whose evolution mirrors the turbulence of the 21st century.

Admission/Cost: $35 - $92

Location:
La Jolla Playhouse
2910 La Jolla Village Drive
