San Diego Air and Space Museum 2001 Pan American Plaza, San Diego, CA 92101

THE Best Halloween party I’ve ever been to! Yelp sure knows how to throw an awesome event!

Standing in line, checking out all the costumes….love Michael Jackson dressed up in his Thiller outfit, Minions are just so cute, love the goggles! Whilst entering we came upon a libation booth with hands coming forth holding the much sought after Yelp shot glass, filled with a sweet concoction. Ears were met with the up beat music and a plethora of food booths. So many booths so little time! My favorite donut was the crème filled pumpkin flavor from Donut Bar and my favorite bite was Funky Fries & Burgers Hawaiian roll filled with barbeque pork, yummy! The hazelnut gelato from Gelato Paradiso was to die for.

More costume favorites; the marine fatigue duo (they looked like the real thing) dancing Cookie Monster holding a plate of chocolate chip cookies, the bad ass green skin lady Gamora, Vampire lady with her Swedish counterpart (Elle and Bret), pirate Lady (Lynn) and gold flapper girl. Went for a sit up massage (Massage Envy) twice because it was really helpful and the ladies were so nice!

Toured a bit of the museum, it’s been awhile since I’ve frequented so stand out’s for me are; the Leonardo Da Vinci The Ultimate Innovator special exhibition. Love, love, love his paintings and recreations of his numerous inventions. The hang glider is my favorite. We didn’t get to see the whole exhibition, so darn guess well have to come back! The modest size 3D/4/D movie theater included a very realistic flight simulator, so you felt like your in the cockpit. Found a replica of  The Red Baron complete with Snoopy! So cool. One of my all time favorite pilots is Amelia Earhart because she was the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic and set several woman’s speed and distance records flying a Vega.

Accompanied by my comic con BF and pirate lady Lynn we really had a fun time. Kept coming back to the food booths to try and sample everything at least once. On the way out we were given choices on what sandwich’s to take with us, nice! More food highlights; bacon wrapped cinnamon roll on a stick, beef burger from Slaters 50/50 was excellent, pork sliders from Water Front, very tender, moist and flavorful, had two of those.

In 2006 the Museum’s name changed to San Diego Air & Space Museum to better reflect its mission and collection. In 1986 the Museum became the first aero-themed museum to be accredited by the American Association of Museums, and it is now a Smithsonian affiliate. The California Legislature voted to declare the Museum “California’s official Air and Space Museum and Education Center. Because of San Diego’s contributions to aviation and aerospace history and technology, it is only fitting that the Museum is now recognized as one of the country’s premier aerospace museums. SDASM

I’m gonna let you in on a secret.  I’ve had a crush on Wonder Woman since I first saw Lynda Carter tie bad guys up with her magic lasso.  I have been bad too.

I was thrilled to find out I would be going to this Yelp event with Wonder Woman!  Line to get in wasn’t too bad and I took photos to prove I was with the woman of my dreams.  Lots of awesome costumes this night.  I sampled a ton of excellent food.

Donut Bar – pumpkin donut was a big fluffy yeast based donut with a sweet sugar glaze and delicious pumpkin flavor.  Like a supercharged glazed donut from Donut Touch.

Harbor Town – soy ginger wings were tender, juicy, and had delicious flavor from the marinade.  Tasted just like the soy ginger wings from Werewolf.

Lucha Libre – very cool spin to win contest where I won sunglasses!  Bacon wrapped hot dog was a little to salty for me.  Hebrew National dogs are the perfect saltiness for me.

Was awesome walking around checking out examples of aviation history as well as watching the 2 4D movies.  I particularly enjoyed the bi-plane dogfights.  Was I bad enjoying 3 different massages from the awesome Massage Envy people?  My shoulders have a few sore spots and each person used different techniques to fix them.  🙂

  3. Baller! Three passes at the massage envy?! I was too shy to partake in that section.

    I was really surprised how much I liked this event. The lines to get samples weren’t too bad. I actually was blown away by a few samples actually. It was fun to see the full donut samples at Donut Bar!

      I went twice for my massages. Really relaxing, you missed out!
      My favorite donut was the pumkin with creme filling.

  4. Looks like we missed out on this Yelp event. Oh well, there’s always next time… I spy a nice Sharknado hat from comic con!

  5. I find the coolest stuff at comic con like my avatar and Sharknado stuff. 🙂 Did you get cool stuff from comic con?

    There should be another great Halloween party next year!

    1. I wish. I wanted to get a drawing of Goku hovering over Superman’s battered body, but when I came back to buy it the guy that was selling it was nowhere to be found. No website either. I am still bummed about that. The best thing I got was free Totino’s outside the convention center.

      1. Nice! I got a Hateful Eight shirt but it was too small so I had to give it away. *sigh I also got a Petco Star Wars Chewbacca dog chew toy. I keep that on my shelf.

        I’ve found that hot stuff disappears fast so if you see it just get it quick.
