SCRIPPS RANCH WEEKEND

Nerf War at Jerabek Park!
Who said war can’t be fun? A huge battle is looming in Scripps Ranch on Friday, and it’s sure to be both fun and exhilarating. What better way to spend Winter Break?

A gigantic Nerf War has been organized and scheduled for Jerabek Neighborhood Park, 10200 Scripps Trail, on Friday, Dec. 29. The battle will begin at 10 a.m.

Originally set up by a Scripps Ranch mom after seeing how much fun her son and his friends enjoyed playing with their Nerf guns at birthday parties, the Nerf War invitation has been extended to all youngsters of elementary age in Scripps Ranch, and their friends — no matter where they live. Rules are loose at this point. The only real rule is no head shots. It’s probably a good idea to tell the kids not to worry about losing or sharing their foam darts. It’s likely many rounds of ammunition will be lost in the carnage.


New Year’s Eve at Sanctuary Lounge
On Friday night, Dec 29. 18, Sanctuary Lounge will feature Keni Yarbro and his acoustic guitar beginning at 7 p.m. DJ GiGi will follow Yarbro’s performance to keep the sounds flowing until 1:30 a.m. The Jim Beam girls will be on hand Friday from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. serving Jim Double Barrel.

On Sunday, Dec. 31, Sanctuary Lounge will offer a cigar and beer special. Come in to enjoy an amazing Fratello or Ceron cigar along with any of Sanctuary’s 16 beers on tap for $15 between 4 and 8 p.m.

Sanctuary Lounge will hold its New Year’s Eve party Sunday for customers from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. Customers can reserve a section now. Entry is free until 10 p.m.; cost is $10 per person after 10 p.m. The celebration will include a midnight balloon drop, complimentary champagne toast, party favors and DJ Smooth on the turntables.
