We were looking forward to the music, advertised to start at 7 pm. Then we heard (thought we heard?) from the bandstand that they were just doing sound checks and wouldn't be starting until 8 pm, so we ended up leaving. Anyone know what time they actually started? Otherwise we enjoyed the Taste of IB. Wish more vendors had participated--lots of restaurants and eateries missed what I thought was a great opportunity to give people a taste of their culinary prowess. We tried things at places we'd not been to yet and new things at venues we had visited. Looking forward to going back to those eateries who participated!

The dancing started promptly at 7pm. What a terrific event! It just doesn't get better than dancing under the stars, at the beach, on a summer evening. I've checked one off my bucket list. :-) I wish that this was a weekly event, all summer long. Who knew how many dancers we have in IB and what a pity that there is no place for ballroom dancing. I would pay for more dancing like this! Kudos to the Port of San Diego for an awesome event and memorable evening.
