SCRIPPS RANCH WEEKEND
‘For Better’ explores digital romance
Scripps Ranch Theatre will deliver its production of “For Better” to audiences through June 24 at the Legler Benbough Theater on the Alliant International University campus.
Written by Eric Coble and directed by Eric Poppick, “For Better” explores and pokes fun at the world of romance in the digital age. With all the electronic options available for communication these days, who’s to say a couple can’t play out their romantic relationship entirely by wireless means? Who’s to say it’s not as good as in-person interaction?
Performances will be held every Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. and every Sunday at 2 p.m. through June 24 in the Legler Benbough Theater at Alliant International University, 9783 Avenue of Nations. For tickets, visit scrippsranchtheatre.org.
Bayhopia IPA Release Party
Join Savagewood Brewing Company on Saturday, May 26, for the release of Bayhopia IPA. The release party will be on until 9 p.m.
Oleg Shpyrko won the QUAFF Club competition for American IPA vs. English IPA. His American IPA, Bayhopia, won overall and Savagewood partnered with him to brew it for customers to enjoy. This West Coast IPA is a great example of the style: delicious and easy to drink. It’s great for the warm weekend afternoons in San Diego.
Join Oleg as Savagewood Brewing taps his beer. Savagewood will order a couple of pizzas at 3 p.m. to snack on as well.
Savagewood Brewing Company is at 9879 Hibert St., Suite F.
