Cool As Ever Tech SD Tweetup now FREE!

del-mar-horse-races-pic

The next SD Tweetup on August 8th was already shaping up to be a doozy: the site is the Del Mar Racetrack, the entertainment is swing band Big Time Operator, and attendees will get private seating, private betting booths and tech swag galore. TechZulu is providing live streaming and will debut their show TechPunch with host Amanda Coolong there. Though the SD Tweetup had never charged for admission before, $35 seemed like a steal for such a great day at the races.

Would you believe it’s now free?

Smells like roller derby…

See the San Diego Derby Dolls this Saturday!

See the San Diego Derby Dolls this Saturday!

Roller derby. Fishnets. Catfights. Hairspray. Sweat. Lip gloss. Kneepads. Admit it…these words have already got you turned on and scouring Netflix for a copy of Raquel Welch in Kansas City Bomber.

How about something even better? This Saturday, there will be live roller derby action at Del Mar.

The San Diego Derby Dolls, the pre-eminent banked and flat-track local roller derby league, will be fielding their flat-track team the Wildfires in a bout against the Central Coast Roller Derby on Saturday, April 4 at Wyland Center Hall at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. General admission tickets are $13 in advance at http://www.derbydolls.com or $15 at the door. VIP bleacher seating is $20, and kids 7 and under get in free.

I saw a few bouts when the Dolls used to appear monthly at SkateWorld in Linda Vista, and believe me, they are some serious ath-a-letes. With names like Isabelle Ringer, PT Bruiser, Splint Her and Kiki Diazz, they’re also kinda scary. Don’t tell them I said so.

To get a taste of what’s coming, check out the Derby Doll’s YouTube channel.
