Hillcrest is about to get spooky fun this week as the neighborhood goes into full-on Halloween mode. Of course, there is the ever-popular Nightmare on Normal Street in which Hillcrest comes alive for its annual block party. This year entertainment features some great talent from the reality series Dragula and costume contests for humans and their fur babies.
One of the biggest weekends of the year is finally upon us. Although Halloween doesn't officially happen until next Thursday, this week and weekend is packed full of spooktacular entertainment celebrating the season. From costume contests to pool parties to early morning dance celebrations, Hillcrest is coming alive all through the witching hour.
This week San Diego Gay and Lesbian News explored the new building in Hillcrest called Abpopa. We talked to the owner and architect about this new addition to the skyline and although you can rent the rooms by the day he stops short of calling it a hotel.
Nightmare on Normal Street is just over a week away, and as you gear up to take part in that, have a look at what this week has to offer including the debut of DJ Dirty Kurty at Overdrive. Kurty is one of the most sought-after DJs in the local circuit and together with Overdrive it's certainly going to be a night to remember.
This week there was a lot of activity in Hillcrest, especially on Tuesday when the Hillcrest Business Association elected their new board members amid a party that celebrates the new Normal Street Promenade project. In addition to all the fun, wayfinding kiosks were unveiled which point visitors to different landmarks in the historic district.
