There’s nothing like watching live music at Allied Gardens Community Park in San Diego. This location holds fun and impressive concerts on the first Fridays of every month all summer long. When you’re looking to do something fun and different to kick off your weekend, we’ve got the perfect Friday planned for you!
Here’s some favorite stops on a perfect Friday night at the Summer Concert Series!
Pick Your Concert
You may want to check the lineup, but there’s only a few first Fridays left of summer to catch a show at Allied Gardens Community Park. The next scheduled show is the Manny Cepeda Orchestra on August 3. If you’re a lover of Salsa and Latin Jazz, you may want to head out to the park with your dancing shoes on! If you’re a lover of Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, the Pettybreakers are the next best thing. This tribute band takes the stage on September 7 and will play all your favorite hits, from “American Girl” to “Free Fallin’.”
Get Drinks Beforehand
There’s nothing like loosening up with a cocktail or two before you head to see a show. Especially if you go to a fun and inventive cocktail lounge like Parks & Rec. They’ve got plenty of spirits for you to try, or go for your favorite cocktails like the P&R Old Fashioned, a Cucumber Gimlet, a Moscow Mule, or a classic Margarita before heading out to the Summer Concert Series. They’ve got plenty of tasty options, as well as some local craft beer and wine for you to get a taste of home.
Get Dessert After
One of the best ways to end the evening out is with a fresh and tasty dessert. That’s exactly what you get at Nomad Donuts. Take home a dozen of your favorite flavors that you can enjoy the next morning. All the donuts are baked fresh daily and the team utilizes the best ingredients around to deliver one of the most savory and satisfying donuts in America’s Finest City. Perk up with a cup of coffee to complement your donuts. After one bite, you’ll keep coming back.
