World Cup Merchandise at Sports Headquarters

Are you as crazy as I am about the World Cup?  I don’t blame you.   It’s been a great week of games so far.  And I’m sure you’d want to support your team as much as possible, right?

Well, Sports Headquarters located inside Seaport Village has the World Cup merchandise to help you do just that!  Jerseys, jackets,  team t-shirts, hats, and so much more! 

But wait that’s not all!! If you’re shopping at the village while the games are on, you can go into Sports HQ and watch the games live on their TVs!  Can you say grade A service or what!?

So, stop by and get in the world cup spirit with your team’s merchandise!  And hey, maybe stay there and watch the whole game.  We won’t tell your family.

Michael Flohr Art Exhibition- “A Moment in Time”

The Seaport Village EC Gallery is hosting another amazing art exhibition.  This time for Michael Flohr.

On June 20-22, San Diego native and artist Michael Flohr will host a three day exhibition at Exclusive Collections’ Seaport Village Gallery, “A Moment in Time”. The exhibition’s theme will focus on the artist’s travels and observations of city life.

Who is Michael Flohr?  Flohr, who has been named a Top Artist by Art Business News for three consecutive years, aims to capture the human experience through his urban impressionist techniques. He allows the viewer to experience a timeless moment by depicting city life and streetscapes. Flohr draws inspiration from his surroundings, many of which include San Diego landmarks like Coronado, the Del Mar Racetrack and Balboa Park. His latest fine art limited edition painting, Romance in the Rain, depicts a couple sharing an umbrella in Italy’s Piazza Navona. His technique of using square brush strokes draws the eye in, almost making the viewer feel as if they are experiencing the very moment he depicts.

So, come join EC Gallery and get lost in “A Moment in Time”.  The gallery will host complimentary food, wine and champagne.  To RSVP, click here


Friday, June 20 from 6 pm to 9pm

Saturday, June 21 from 6pm to 9pm

Sunday, June 22 from 12pm to 5pm

See you all there!

"Best Seat in the House” Contest – Harbor House, Edgewater Grill, and Pier Cafe

If you're a San Diegan, I'm sure you know about the 4th of July Big Bay Boom fireworks and how Seaport Village is the perfect viewing location.  The village gets pretty crowded on the 4th and people tend to camp out here in hopes of catching the best fireworks view.

Well, we've teamed up with our 3 waterfront restaurants- Harbor House, Edgewater Grill, and SD Pier Cafe for a contest for the best 4th of July seats.  Here's how it works:

Mention each of the restaurants on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram between June 15 and July 1 using the hashtag for each restaurant and get yourself entered to win the “Best Seat in the House” for the 4th of July Fireworks in Seaport Village!

We do not take reservations at all on the 4th, so this is extra special!

NOTE: Each restaurant is running their own contest*.


  • The table will be available to you and up to three other people (minimum of 2 and a max of 4 people), beginning at 7:00pm on July 4.
  • Get to Seaport Village early enough to get a parking spot in one of the lots and you will get your parking paid for 100% (we cannot save  a spot, so plan on getting here early if you’d like to take advantage of this); one car per group and restaurant.
  • Spend a minimum of $100 and you will get $50 off of your bill (gratuity on the total original bill not included).
