It has been a half-century of hippies, spiritual gurus, and hot springs at Esalen in Big Sur and they want to celebrate. On the day of commemorating our nation's independence, Esalen is putting on an all day event featuring three bands (Samba'Da, Pimps of Joytime, and Dehli2Dublin) in a venue just steps from an ocean cliff. There is food, beer, and wine for purchase and vendors are selling their clothing, jewelry, and other wares fit for flower-children of all generations. A Stretch and Yoga Movement class will be available from Hannah, and a hula-hooper, Jocelyn Gordon, will lead a Hoop Jam. Ticket price includes full use of the property, including the coveted hot spring baths. Big Sur locals get in for $45, and all others for $65 (children 12 and under are free). [GS]
