Dancin' in September

Welcome to September’s issue of Del Mar Lifestyle! What a fantastic summer we have had this year. The fair tickled our taste buds and enlightened our senses. The races kept us on our toes, and we were on the edge of our seats when American Pharaoh trotted into Del Mar. We enjoyed late dinners at Café Secret, chatting with the owners about their fresh Peruvian fare, and walked down to the beach to watch the sun sink into the ocean late into the evening.

The fun’s not over yet. In fact, it has only just begun as we bring you Del Mar Lifestyle’s September issue, featuring concerts, music, poetry, animal lovers and celebration. In September, our theme is “Turn Over a New Leaf” as we move into a new season. September traditionally has a back-to-school focus, but we decided that there is no reason why kids should have all the fun. This issue embraces lifelong learning and the joy of trying out new hobbies, acquiring new information, and learning new skills.

We are excited to feature an interview with Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Rae Armantrout just as she retires from the University of California, San Diego and launches a brand-new collection. We also get up close with musicians One Drop, one of San Diego’s most beloved reggae bands, and the sensual Anna Danes, jazz singer and performer in the famous Jazz on Cedros series. (We got them to spill a few tips on writing and performing music!) Don’t forget – KAABOO will be in town this month and we are excited to welcome them! Del Mar welcomes this music experience to our hometown, and all of the musical guests that accompany this festival, with open arms and ears.

Also, don’t forget our featured local business, Camp Run A Mutt; we meet the owners personally as they share their business with Del Mar. We’ll also experience ARTS, a Reason to Survive, and The Stars Align concert. Hopefully our articles and photos inspire you to try learning something new this fall. Let us know how it goes!

This issue is sure to bring excitement and joy into your home. Enjoy September, and we will see you next month!

With Gratitude –
