The Old Globe would like to invite friends, Romans, countrymen—all of San Diego, in fact—to join us in celebrating our resident playwright William Shakespeare’s birthday with Happy Birthday, Mr. Shakespeare! on Saturday, April 22, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., on the Globe’s campus in Balboa Park. The Bard’s birthday—his 453rd!—is a fitting and festive reason to recognize his countless contributions to arts and culture around the world. This exciting day of family activities is free and open to the public as part of the Globe’s ongoing commitment to programs that serve all of San Diego County. Don your best doublet and ruff—or come as you are. And did we mention cake?!
Congregation Beth Israel is excited for its Annual Fundraiser, Berk’s Diner and Comedy Club. They will honor Rabbi Michael Berk as they celebrate his retirement. The event will feature great food and an impressive silent auction, and the program will showcase a fabulous stand-up comedian, Joel Chasnoff. Sam “The Cooking Guy” Zien will be the emcee for the evening. Following the program, you can enjoy a dessert reception and an afterparty with a DJ and dancing. Dress in casual attire and come prepared for a fun-filled evening!
