What we're about

Have you ever wondered where the stars of the past went for some R&R? Did you know that under a certain playground is a cemetery? Are you aware of the hidden underground tunnels that allowed spirits to flow during Prohibition?

If any of these questions have piqued your interest, then you are on the correct Meet Up! The History of San Diego with a Twist will unveil some historic and fun facts of its past. We’ll offer private tours for our groups, we’ll post historic group happenings in the area and share with you our love of historic San Diego! The goal is to provide a comfortable social happy hour in historically significant settings, and increase awareness of some of the amazing history in the San Diego area.

Our events are normally held on a monthly basis in a historic space, hotel or location. We'll meet first at a nearby venue such as a lounge or wine bar for some tasty bites and cocktails to relax and unwind with members of our group. This will give us an opportunity to meet and make friends with other San Diego history buffs! Happy hour will be followed by a historical tour or knowledgeable speaker with an opportunity for questions and sharing. We have already visited a few fascinating locations and have many more ideas that we are truly excited about. We may even partner with the San Diego History Center in Balboa Park for some events.

There is a small per-meeting fee (non-refundable) to help offset our Meet up group costs. Our event format is nearly always cash-bar / no-host food and cocktails.

We ask that you have a recent profile picture on your meet-up page so that we can recognize each other and get to know each other easier. Also, if you sign up to attend, please don't drop out the last day or be a no-show. You were probably taking up a spot someone else wanted and other members were looking forward to seeing you!

Check back often as we’ll be updating our calendar regularly! You must become a member of "The History of San Diego with a Twist" meetup group to receive our updates and attend our events.

Can't wait to see you there!
