Fans of artisanal food, handcrafted products, and local entertainment can get their weekly fix every Friday night at the corner of El Cajon Boulevard and Utah Street. Enjoy food, listen to live local music and themed DJ sets, and check out local crafters and shopping around #30ECB. Chefs feature their regional cuisine from Hawaii to East Africa, Belgium to South America. There are a lot of vegetarian options, too.
Warm late afternoons give way to gorgeous sunsets, and as the night wanes foodies have the option of winding down with coffee and dessert or revving up by making their way around the 30ECB hub where there’s always a great art event at Gym Standard, independent film screenings at the Media Arts Center, a show and cocktails at Lips, and revelers at Boulevard breweries.
