TIX markets apr 2015

TIJUANA MARKET HOP | 10 AM SUNDAY APRIL 19 | $25

On Sundays the hilltop streets of Tijuana are filled by swapmeets so massive -- blocks and blocks of vendors selling mountains of the most random secondhand loot -- they make Kobey’s look like a 7-Eleven. Even if you make your way out of the bargain bin maze without dropping a single peso, you’ll walk away having lived an essential Mexican experience: the mercado.

We'll do stops at two flea markets, followed by a visit to Mercado Miguel Hidalgo, the city's oldest open-air market in Zona Rio.

Tickets include roundtrip border transport and complimentary pan dulce and coffee upon arrival.

The group meets in San Ysidro at 10 a.m., with an estimated return to the border at 4 p.m.

TICKETS.

Hello!

TIX BASEBALL APR 2015

TIJUANA TOROS BASEBALL | 1 PM SATURDAY APRIL 25 | $25

A cornrowed Kenny Powers is about the only sideshow missing from this dose of major league Mexican baseball (dancing bull-chicken-ape mascot trio and cheerleaders aside). Grab your mitt and Big Chew and join Turista Libre in cheering on the Tijuana Toros as they take on the Puebla Pericos at Estadio Gasmart, a 16,000-capacity ballpark that underwent a nearly $2 million renovation in 2013.

Tickets include roundtrip border transport, en-route libations and tickets to the game.

The group meets in San Ysidro at 1 p.m., with an estimated return to the border at 9 p.m.
