Ok ghouls and ghosts, it’s that time of year again! It’s Halloween in San Diego and there are lots of things to do with your family and of course that includes the furry, four-legged kids too! San Diego has everything from costume contests to cocktails with your canine. There is something for everyone and you don’t want to miss out.
In the Gaslamp Quarter, on the Level 9 Rooftop Bar of the Indigo Hotel bring along your costumed canine and enjoy some cocktails for a good cause. Canine Cocktails is a monthly event that benefits the San Diego Humane Society and every month is a different theme. Obviously, October’s theme is Halloween, so dress up your dog and come out and enjoy San Diego’s night life.
