Ladies and gentlemen, we’re gathered here today - well, not today, but soon - to join another PacificSD blind date couple in holy matrimony. For reals. We’re like eHarmony up in this mofo.
Rian and Nami met on a blind date in the March 2009 issue. She worked at P.B. Bar and Grill; he was (and still is) a manager and part owner of Tender Greens. After that first date, she said, “It ended with a romantic kiss. I would love to see him again.” He said, “She was friendly and liked to have fun. I know we will go out again.”
The two have been living in sin ever since, and have now asked yours truly to preside over their nuptials on April 20, 2014, which happens to be my birthday and a high time for a wedding.
Of course, you’ll be invited to the wedding, dear Reader, or at least to view the exclusive photos right after the big day. (If you know the perfect place to hold the ceremony or reception, please let me know - not kidding.)
Having fostered two weddings, one birth (blind daters Ty and Suzannah married a couple years ago and now how have a one-year-old daughter) and countless regrets, the PacificSD seed is a fertile one. Here are just a few of the ways we’re spreading the love this summer.

Love the Padres...
Even if you don’t know the rules of baseball or how many touchdowns there are in three innings, you can still enjoy industry Nights at the Padres, where Monday night home games rock with DJs in the outfield. Win tickets at facebook.com/pacificsd, then come play the field with hundreds of bar/ restaurant/nightlife people.
Love to party...
Pitching A Tent
That giant white tent at the foot of Fifth Avenue in the Gaslamp isn’t a circus, but walking underneath it is the only way to access the sexy, DJ-driven daylife-meets-nightlife insanity that is Intervention Sundays at Hard Rock Hotel San Diego. PacificSD is proud (hence our logos on said tent) to partner with HRHSD for yet another summer of the biggest pool parties in Southern California. June shows include LA Riots, Lil John, Nicky Romero, Steve Aoki and R3HAB. interventionsundays.com
