Events in Vista: Our Top 3 Picks for August!

Here at North County Plumbing we believe you should both work hard and play hard! Summer is in full swing and Vista is bustling with activities that offer a little something for everyone.

Here are 3 summer worthy events to add to your calendar this August:

1. For the Craft Beer Lovers!

San Diego just so happens to be the craft beer capital of AMERICA. Currently home to nearly 100+ microbreweries and brewpubs, another fun little fact is that a majority of them reside right here in North County. For more info about the breweries in Vista you should check out our blog about it! Aztec Brewery is a featured part of this brewing mecca and we’re so lucky it’s nestled right here in our backyard. Not only does Aztec Brewery offer up unique Cervezas’, they book live local musicians on Friday nights to play in the tasting room. Upcoming musicians of their Friday “Locals Live” line-up this August include Lena Belle, The Younger Brothers, and Nathan & Jessy.

You can find the Aztec Brewery at 2330 La Mirada Dr #300, Vista CA 92081.

They’re open for regular hours Wednesday through Sunday and Closed on Mondays & Tuesdays.

2. How About An Evening of Painting… with WINE!?

Vista is home to  Fifty Barrels Urban Winery, and they also happen to host a Paint Nite on Friday nights! Enjoy some of their featured wines while getting in touch with your creative side with a painting lesson lead by a professional artist. The goal is to go from “blank canvas to masterpiece.” The experience is customizable to your liking with choice wines, cheeses and dried meats as accompaniments. We recommend pre-ordering online so you can see all the options the event has to offer. This is a night out for the adults so you must be 21+ to attend this event.

You can find Fifty Barrels Urban Winery at 230 Main St Vista, CA 92084.

They’re open 6 days a week for regular wine tastings in addition to ongoing Paint Nite events through October 30th, 2015.
