Things to do in San Diego this Week

The Red List is a roundup of events, shopping and foodie stuff that we think you should know about. If you want it in your inbox, go to our homepage and look for the subscribe button on the right.
Cecilia Boutique (928 Fort Stockton Drive, Mission Hills) is thanking customers from 7 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, July 7, with champagne, cupcakes, 15-percent-off discounts, free mini-massages and more. Jewelry designer Mimi & Lu will also be on-site showing off their latest creations. www.ceciliaboutique.com, 619-692-3802.
And you missed the grand opening but it’s not too late to head over to Mimi & Red’s new Bird Rock location (5630 La Jolla Blvd.). The gals just got in a big shipment Bird Rock, which means two things—deals on the older stuff and a great selection of newer items. Be sure to congratulate the owners on their new digs when you go.

Two shows that should be on your must-see list this week: San Diego artist Robert Nelson will be opening his first-ever solo show at Noel-Baza Fine Art (2165 India St., Little Italy) from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, July 9. The man is a master in line work and you simply must see his drawings in person to appreciate their perfection. www.noel-bazafineart.com.
And be sure to stop by the one-night-only show, Vacancy 3, from 4 to 8 p.m. Sunday, July 11. Lots of talented local artists will be doing installation pieces inside a vacant apartment at 3666 Villa Terrace in North Park.
