San Diego’s Street Scene festival will soon show California’s (legal) drinkers up with a party not even “My Super Sweet Sixteen” has a shot at topping. Since the fest features delicious food, fire dancers, aerial acrobatics, a burlesque act, a drag show, a drum circle, carnival rides, arts and crafts, and of course, a recently revealed list of live musical acts, the RSVPs must be rolling in.
