Girls Night Out: A move to the social side of things

Editor's Note: Bianca Waxlax's popular weekly column "Girls Night Out" has been moved to the Social section with a slight change of format, so we can more accurately identify and convey all the exciting opportunities available to women to socialize right here in San Diego. Everything from emerging artists, women-fronted bands, karaoke nights, open mic, spoken word, social gatherings and places to dance your stress off. If you are producing or participating in a women's event, make sure you bring it to Bianca's attention for inclusion.
