    SeaWorld will open a dueling roller coaster, dubbed Tidal Twister, as a new attraction for 2019. The first of its kind in the world, this unique and horizontal ride is an exhilarating experience that demonstrates the power of the ocean. Accelerating to 30 miles per hour, riders will twist and bank as if they are riding the tide along a tight figure-8 track that includes dynamic zero-g roll at the center section. Two trains, holding 16 passengers each, load at opposite ends of the figure-8 and cross in the center with guests facing both forward and backward on the trains. A lower-height requirement of 48 inches makes this attraction a perfect ride for younger guests and families. “There is no other coaster experience in the world like Tidal Twister,” said Hannes. “The two trains duel one another and guests will see the excitement on the faces of other riders. You’ll almost feel like you can reach out and touch them. The tight turns, the inversion and the airtime hill will leave our guests wondering which way is up.” Tidal Twister, elevated 16 feet off the ground, will be located adjacent the Aquaria touch pool and aquarium in the northwest corner of the park, the perfect location to accentuate the new attraction’s conservation element that focuses on sustainable aquaculture and coral reef protection.

    Polish Festival in Pacific Beach Polish culture and hospitality will be on display Friday through Sunday, Oct. 12-14, at the St. Maximilian Kolbe Roman Catholic Church fundraiser at 1735 Grand Ave.   The annual Polish Fest is a tribute to Polish heritage and pride. The event includes live performances by Polish folk dancers and various musical bands.  Polish cuisine and genuine imported Polish beer will be sold. Also available for purchase at the church mission site will be a variety of commemorative event T-shirts, hats and other apparel. “This annual fundraising event is one of the most popular ethnic festivals in the Pacific Beach area, attracting people from all around San Diego as well as international visitors who want to get a taste of what Poland is all about,” said St. Maximilian Kolbe spokeswoman Agnieszka Giacalone. St. Maximilian was built in 1995 in Pacific Beach to serve the Polish community, a large number of whom emigrated from their native land during the Solidarity labor-union movement of the 1990s. The church is named for St. Maximilian Kolbe, a Franciscan friar and World War II-era hero who voluntarily sacrificed himself in the place of a stranger at the infamous Auschwitz concentration camp. Kolbe provided shelter to refugees from Greater Poland, including 2,000 Jews, whom he hid from Nazi persecution in his friary until he was arrested by the German Gestapo and imprisoned. For more information, visit polishmission.org/festival/index.php. BOOmont and Fall Fest at Belmont Park Returning for its sixth season, BOOmont and Fall Fest rises from the dusk as Belmont Park transforms with festive fall thrills and chills throughout the amusement park. Throughout October, guests will be able to participate in free activities including trick-or-treating from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. from Friday to Sunday and family costume contests each Saturday at 5:30 p.m. There will be pumpkin painting starting at $2. There will also be two free concerts at the Beach House for all ages featuring The Cool Kids and other bands 7 p.m. on Oct. 13. Sure Fire Soul Ensemble performs 1 to 4 p.m. on Oct. 28. Beer lovers can taste craft brews and hand-made pretzels while enjoying live music at the Belmont Beer Tasting Garden on Oct. 20 from 4 to 7 p.m. Draft will hold its annual costume party with a live DJ on Oct. 26 from 7 p.m. to midnight. Sun Diego Am Slam Surf & Skate Series San Diego's only surf, skate and music festival will be happening at Belmont Park in Mission Beach on Saturday, Oct. 13. The final stop of the Sun Diego Am Slam Surf & Skate Series presented by Vans is also the largest with more than $8,000 up for grabs in the pro-am divisions. The Am Slam is the only amateur surf/skate contest series in Southern California and is designed to give local surfers and skaters of all ages the opportunity to compete and excel. Governor signs no-helmet bill for motorized scooters Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill absolving adults from being required to wear helmets on electric scooters on city streets. Dockless bike company Bird backed the no-helmet law, AB 2989, which also permits scooters to be on streets with speed limits up to 35 mph. State law currently bans scooters on streets with speed limits exceeding 25 mph. Gov. Brown also signed AB 3077, which allows people under age 18, who’ve been cited for not wearing a bicycle helmet, to correct the violation within four months by attending a bicycle safety course and proving they now have a correct-fitting helmet. Both laws take effect Jan. 1, 2019. Gartland named SDFD lifeguard division chief After a thorough recruitment process, San Diego Fire-Rescue Department (SDFD) Chief Colin Stowell announced the appointment of James Gartland as the new lifeguard division chief. Gartland has served as interim chief for the past six months. Gartland has been a SDFD lifeguard for 23 years. He is a graduate of San Diego State University with a degree in business administration/accounting and completed the Wharton College Mission Critical Team Professional Development Program. He is currently a member of the Type 3 San Diego All-Hazards Incident Management Team and has served as the chair of the San Diego Regional Aquatic Lifesaving Emergency Response Task Force and the Area Maritime Security Subcommittee on Preventative Radiological Nuclear Detection. He also spent 18 months as the regional maritime emergency preparedness manager with the City’s Office of Homeland Security. Aside from his commitment to his career as a public servant, Gartland spends a lot of time volunteering in a variety of capacities in San Diego. He is currently the president of the Old Town Academy School Advisory Board and has volunteered for San Diego Coastkeeper and Clairemont Hilltoppers Little League. Chief Gartland has been an officer with the San Diego Lifesaving Association and the San Diego Association for Lifeguards. Flu vaccine now available The flu vaccine is here. And now that the influenza vaccine is readily available across the region, the County Health and Human Services Agency is encouraging the public to get vaccinated. “Everyone 6 months and older should get vaccinated now before flu season arrives,” said Wilma Wooten, M.D., M.P.H., County public health officer. “The vaccine is safe and effective. All San Diegans should get vaccinated to avoid getting sick and spreading the virus to others.” Last season, 342 people died from complications from the flu, 255 more than the previous season and the highest total since the County began tracking flu deaths nearly 20 years ago. Visit www.sdiz.org or call 2-1-1 San Diego to find a list of County locations. The County provides free vaccinations as part of the County’s Live Well San Diego vision of healthy, safe and thriving residents and communities. Pure Water moves forward with EPA loan The City’s efforts to create one-third of its own water supply by 2035 took a major step forward last week with City Council approval of a loan that will finance nearly half of the first phase of Pure Water San Diego – a multi-year program that will use proven water purification technology to clean recycled water to produce safe, high-quality drinking water. The $614 million loan comes from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Water Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act (WIFIA) Program and will cover 49 percent of the $1.25 billion project. There will be a second reading of the ordinance by the City Council in two weeks to officially authorize the loan. The Pure Water program will eventually recycle up to 83 million gallons of waste-water per day. It is one of the major sustainability projects that support Mayor Faulconer’s Climate Action Plan.

They defeated University City and High Tech High Schools during the week and carried that momentum into the weekend winning the Varsity Cougar Invitational Tournament at Las Palmas Pool in National City. Coach Lindsay Sutterley, said, "The Bucs had a close first half in the final game and were able to pull ahead in the fourth quarter." Junior Kyle Baker scored 12 goals and had 16 steals, while senior goalie Whitney Snead had 31 blocks for the weekend. Pacific Beach Middle - PBMS Music Association is hosting the second annual PB Palooza noon to 7 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 14 at San Diego Mission Bay Boat and Ski Club.

It is the third consecutive year that Barnard’s students have performed in this annual event. The school’s “Flying Arts” performance troupe, comprised of second- through fifth-grade students, presented a dance interpretation of Mulan, the legendary warrior woman from fifth century China. Later in the program, students from Barnard’s fourth-grade classrooms performed a dance from the Yi Torch Festival. Set to traditional music from the southwest region of China, this dance commemorates the fabled wrestler Atilaba, who drove away a plague of locusts using torches made from pine trees. Another group of Barnard students joined instructors from the Confucius Institute at San Diego State University to demonstrate the slow-moving exercises of tai chi, which has its origin in the fighting arts. - For information on Barnard Mandarin Magnet Elementary School, or to find out about the District’s School Choice program, visit sandiegounified.org/barnard.

    Tacos are the new pizza. They’re no longer constrained by some arbitrary parameters of what makes a taco, a taco. And the notion of authenticity, while a noble pursuit, just takes the fun out of it. Let’s spread the tortilla, and let all the non-traditional fillings in. We’re spoiled though. We know that a few trolley stops south down the blue line is taco heaven. Just a few steps out of the border building at San Ysidro, pedestrians come face-to-face with taco carts that instantly make you crave carne asada. Indulge. They’re authentic and they are spectacular. But north of the border, tacos can be anything wrapped by a corn (or flour) tortilla. Lobster and grilled pineapple? Done. Black beans and pico de gallo? Yep. Soy chorizo with shredded cabbage in a crunchy vegan shell? Sure, why not. For National Taco Day this year, we decided to head out in Pacific Beach and Mission Beach to taste tacos at some well-known establishments and highlight the amazing flavors and variety of tacos available within walking (or scooter) distance. We also listed some of the places that are local favorites, which we didn’t get to on our tour, but have enjoyed in the past. Pueblo 877 Hornblend St. The best tacos in the world are in Tijuana. That’s what Elio Mendoza says, and he should know. Mendoza, who was raised in Tijuana and has a small family restaurant there, previously traveled the world cooking in kitchens from Europe to South America learning authentic French, Italian and Latin cuisine. Now, as head chef at Pueblo in Pacific Beach, the street tacos in Tijuana – such as the carne asada at Tacos El Franc, the shrimp tacos at Mariscos el Mazateño, and the fish tacos at Tacos Fénix cart down the road in Ensenada – have inspired him to create a gastronomic fusion of flavors with authentic ingredients, for a variety of taco tastes. The al pastor-style salmon tacos with mango, pineapple, avocado salsa on jicama tortillas are a stroke of genius. Adding the same marinade used for al pastor to grilled salmon, the flavors are fresh and the fish succulent. “It’s a twist on Baja food flavors,” Mendoza said. The other standout is the crunchy fish tacos. Using the same batter recipe that make Ensenada fish tacos so special, Mendoza adds tortilla chips to create crunchy texture to perfectly cooked fish that is enhanced by mango pico de gallo. “This is true fusion,” Mendoza said. It’s also truly delicious. Taco Surf 4657 Mission Blvd. This place is all about the PB vibe. Wahines in bikinis fill the tables and surfboards cover the walls and ceiling. You don’t surf? That’s fine. You like huge tacos stuffed with meat and covered in house-made red and green salsa? You’re in the right place. “We’ve been here almost 30 years and we’re consistently good,” said owner Sam Mclarty. “We’ve had the same recipe for our salsas and tacos and everybody keeps coming back.” The adobada taco is a meal in itself with the pork cooked perfectly and the right amount of spices. But the standout is the grilled snapper taco. Tender and juicy, topped with tangy salsa, crema and fresh cabbage, this taco will satisfy surfers and everyone else. PB Shore Club 4343 Ocean Blvd. Eating tacos while overlooking the beach just seems right. And the PB Shore Club delivers the view and the tacos, with beef brisket, steak, fish, shrimp and lobster options. To help taste all these tacos, we called in a couple journalism students from Point Loma Nazarene University – Carlsbad natives Natallie Rocha and Andie Naugler. They dove in, finishing off the steak tacos in minutes before ripping into the fish and shrimp ones. College students (and journalists in training) know how to take advantage of free food. “The fish taco is the best – it’s so good,” said Rocha, who worked at Rubio’s for two years and knows a thing about fish tacos. “I would come back for those.” “The shrimp taco is great, it’s my favorite,” said Naugler. “The salsa and guac are really good. I also love the tortillas.” Taqueria Los Ruiz 5010 Cass St. Nestled in a small plaza at the intersection of Cass and Loring in North PB, this taco shop looks and smells as authentic as it gets. Also, their carne asada and al pastor tacos, topped with guacamole, chopped onions and fresh cilantro, looked the most like TJ tacos. Pacific Beach resident Madeleine Jeanette joined the taco tour here and chose to try the nopal, fish and carne asada. She dug into the nopal taco first and liked the flavor of the cactus paired with fried cheese. But the fish taco quickly became her favorite. “Spicy, great flavors and the crunch from the fresh cabbage makes it a great fish taco – one of my favorites,” she said. Tacos Mimi 4508 Cass St. Basically, a taco stand squeezed into a space between Square Pizza Co. and Hawaiian barbecue, Tacos Mimi serves up Baja-style street tacos loaded with big flavor on a small tortilla. This place has garnered a bit of a cult following among the nearby residents and it’s obvious why. The asada, fish and potato tacos are top notch, but the standout is the adobada. “The adobada is out of this world,” Jeanette said. “Maybe the best in Pacific Beach. Terrific.” PB Fish Shop 1775 Garnet Ave. Ask PB residents where their go-to spot is for fish tacos and Pacific Beach Fish Shop will more than likely be mentioned. Customers can build their own taco or choose one of the menu favorites. One of the most popular items is the spicy dorado taco, which includes grilled mahi mahi marinated with Fish Shop seasoning, topped with Sriracha aioli slaw and avocado lime drizzle on a corn tortilla. Oscar’s Mexican Seafood 746 Emerald St. Another spot locals swear by for their authentic Mexican dishes – especially the ceviche and seafood tacos. Be adventurous and try their grilled octopus taco served with cabbage, onion, tomato, cilantro, avocado and cheese. La Perla Cocina Mexicana 745 Emerald St. Across the street from Oscar’s, La Perla is another spot locals stop at after a surf session or beach day. The Mexican eatery offers just about any tacos under the sun including pollo asado, lamb, sea bass and veggie. La Playa Taco Shop 3973 Mission Blvd. If you’re leaving the beach at Pacific Beach Drive and crave tacos, turn south down Mission Boulevard and stop at the small burnt orange building appropriately labeled “Taco Shop.” The eatery has plenty of options, but give the carnitas a try. They’ve been called the best at the beach. Sandbar Sports Bar & Grill 718 Ventura Place In Mission Beach, you can’t go wrong ordering tacos from the restaurant that has won the Pacific BeachFest’s “Best at the Beach Fish Taco Challenge” for five consecutive years. Their TKO-style tacos, which earn all the accolades, include a choice of protein, cotija-crusted flour tortilla, chipotle aioli, beer-brined escabeche slaw, lime crema, spicy guacamole, crispy onion strings, and fried cilantro. Rubio’s Coastal Grill 4504 East Mission Bay Drive The last taco shop on our list is actually the first Baja-style fish taco shop on our list. The original Rubio’s, the first and what many consider still the best fish tacos in San Diego, is a must stop for taco lovers. Voted No. 1 fish tacos in California by USA Today’s Readers' Poll Best of 2018, their beer-battered fish taco is the recipe that started it all in 1983. Made with sustainable, wild Alaska pollock cooked crispy, topped with white sauce, salsa, cabbage, and served on a warm, stone-ground corn tortilla – you cant go wrong with this masterpiece.
