La Jolla July: Sips, Sounds, Sun

Savor a fundraising cocktail at the Hyatt La Jolla or attend a Green Flash concert.

IF YOU'RE A DEVOTED WEATHER WATCHER, you know that when it is hot in one pocket of Southern California, it'll likely be fairly toasty throughout the region. True, one doesn't need a degree in meteorology studies to put forth such an uncontroversial, widely known idea, nor do you have to study the skies daily to make the next leap: It is usually a bit cooler near the ocean. It's all a bit obvious, yes, but whether Southern Californians looking for some relief do head west, to their nearest beach or beach-close town, or not, is up to them. And, of course, cool-seekers need to decide whether they can fit such a jaunt into their schedules. If an overnight in such a beach town is one daydream you've been having, as you place another ice cube on your forehead, then daydream about sauntering by La Jolla, where an easy-breezy July is underway and some interesting happenings are afoot. Look to the...

BIRCH AQUARIUM AT SCRIPPS, and the Green Flash Concerts, which take place in the aquatic institutions Tide-Pool Plaza. Steve Poltz is rocking the stage on July 19, while Milo Greene and Pine Mountain Logs and Venice are coming up in August and September, respectively. And if you're staying at the Hyatt La Jolla, or meeting a local friend at the hotel's DRIFT eat + drink restaurant for Happy Hour? Know that a dollar from that Blueberry Sage Whiskey Lemonade you order, or, if you prefer, another beverage, will go to help SOME, an organization that " back to local communities offering meal assistance and more." That's happening all July long, too, if your La Jolla sojourn will happen closer to the end of the month. Whenever it happens, though, think of those cooler mornings, and, fingers crossed, more temperate afternoons that await.
