Praised by 92064 Magazine, creator Ben Hansen and his six-member company show the many musical uses of household items and junk with Street Beat: A Theatrical Drum and Dance Show. The players transform trash cans into percussive instruments and pay a chorus of vacuum cleaners to sing "Oye Como Va," helping them churn out a jazzy fusion of African, Cuban, and Latin beats. Hip-hop moves and breakdance acrobatics accompany the musical barrage, making for a stomping jubilee for the senses. The show also beats down the fourth wall and does the worm on it by beseeching participation from the all-ages audience, who are encouraged to protect themselves by wearing shoulder pads made out of xylophones.
El Cajon Grand has been keeping the tradition of the neighborhood pub alive since 1950, and today it's still a great spot to nurse a drink while watching the big game. Inside the newly remodeled, 3,500-square-foot space, post up near one of nine flat-screen TVs or head outside to the patio for a leisurely game of horseshoe. Nightly specials include deals on appetizer baskets and craft beers and well drinks from the bar.
