SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- The Gaslamp Quarter is making up for lost memories and launching its "The New Normal is Now" initiative.

Recently, the Gaslamp Quarter has had to pivot focus to continue to host San Diegans and visitors by creating spacious outdoor retail and dining experiences.

In a news release sent to ABC10News Thursday, "The New Normal is Now" celebrates the changes in the Gaslamp Quarter with expanded open-air dining, easy parking, daily specials, and the Gaslamp Promenade.

Upcoming specials and events include:

  • Father’s Day in the Gaslamp: For Father’s Day the Gaslamp Quarter will spoil all dads, grandpas, fur-baby dads, and all fatherly figures with free hot sauce or BBQ sauce! Proof of parking at Park-It-On-Market or the 6th and K Parkade is required.
  • 4th of July Laser Show + Giant Silent Disco: July 3 familes will enjoy a dynamic custom laser show and a multi-block Silent Disco party. Do not forget your funky pants, because you are sure to be getting down to all your favorite beats all night long.
  • Weekly Taco Tuesday: Whether you like it spicy, medium, or mild, every Tuesday there will be specials on all of your favorite flavors from top restaurants and bars.
  • Weekly Wagyu Wednesday: Guests can dine on trendy wagyu offerings of local restaurants at a discounted price every Wednesday.

  • Monthly Movie Night. One Sunday night per month this Summer, the Gaslamp will be showing an all-ages movie affair under the iconic Gaslamp Arch.

"It is time to embrace the new normal. Normal is dancing and laughing, playing, and shopping, moving and socializing. Normal is safely distanced but emotionally close," a Gaslamp spokesperson said.
