[important] San Diego Weekend Events Friday, Nov. 30-Sunday Dec. 02, 2012 [/important]
It may be hard to find the motivation post-Thanksgiving weekend to go out. You may have temporarily broken your diet for a few Thanksgiving leftovers here and there, added to that is the holiday shopping stress as the clock ticks towards crunch time. With the stress of the holidays, it may be hard to think that there is time to relax. There is still time, and many events to enjoy in San Diego from the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, to a wine tour, and even a live murder mystery dinner just to name a few, there is little room for boredom.
