Space to Grow

Shoppers traversing the maze of terraces, walkways and bridges up to Horton Plaza’s fifth level stumble upon curiously vibrant activity — from art displayed on roving human canvases to experimental music, poetry and improvisational dance performances.

Theater Engagement

Never mind what Hamlet said. These days, theaters across the country are scrambling to attract younger audiences, and local companies are coming up with imaginative ways to encourage new attendees and enhance the theater experience.

Home is Where the Heart Is

When your home is your castle, you don’t need to venture anywhere else to exchange vows. Whether a grand estate, a sprawling ranch or a cozy cottage, you can host an elegant wedding at home in familiar surroundings.

Quest of the Guest

With the holiday season just around the corner, friends and colleagues are preparing for festive gatherings at their homes. In addition to our regular holiday shopping, we should stock up on great host gifts that make an impression.

In a playhouse, actors take the stage, the curtain goes up and the show begins. At the end, the actors bow to applause and the audience goes home. It’s a simple, time-honored ritual.

In a Hiring Mood

If the amount of planning, preparation, execution and cleanup involved is holding you back from hosting a party, perhaps you just need to consider what duties you can farm out.

Drawing on Theatricality

Certain recreational pursuits must be taken seriously. Parachute jumping, motorcycle riding and life drawing may spring to mind — until you walk into The Merrow on the third Saturday of the month.

Art for the Ages

Melissa Inez Walker opened ArtHatch in 2004 to support and sell the work of emerging international artists and provide studio space for local artists. The 7,000-square-foot Escondido facility houses a gallery and 14 artists’ studios.
