DMG's Birthday Party Is December 21!

DMG and Marisa CullenMy birthday is Christmas Eve, and I've decided to celebrate it this year with a party on Tuesday, December 21, from 5 p.m. until about 9 or 10 p.m. at my favorite music club, Humphrey's Backstage Lounge on Shelter Island! All of our readers who will be in the San Diego area on Tuesday are invited to join me there! This picture of me with my best friend Marisa Cullen was taken at my 2003 party by Mike Rosenthal.

I've had big Saturday night parties the last three years to mark my birthday, but this year I wasn't even planning on trying to squeeze in a party for myself amongst all the other holiday events. I've changed my mind, however, due to some pushing from two or three friends.

Instead of a large weekend shindig like I've had before, though, I've decided to do something more low-key, which is why I'm having a Tuesday happy hour-based party rather than a late-night blowout on a Saturday.

Humphrey's Happy Hours run from 4:30-6:30 p.m. and feature a One Buck Buffet. For $1 you get 2 carved roast beef sandwiches, or 1 Baja fish taco, or 2 of either shrimp, oysters or ceviche. The full Humphrey's menu also is available at regular prices. Drink specials actually go from 4:30-7:30, and they get you $1 off on margaritas, well drinks, house wines and draft beers.

There's no cover charge on the 21st, so combine that with the happy hour prices and it likely could be a fairly cheap night, as well as a pretty early one if that's what you want. For anyone interested in staying beyond 9 or 10, though, there will be music from 8 p.m. until midnight by Island Breeze, featuring one of the San Diego Parrot Head Club's two co-founders, John Bowe.

Please join me on the 21st at the Backstage Lounge for a fun night! If you do plan to attend, please RSVP to me at!
