Dont spend your evening sitting in the hotel watching TV. Go see a performance in an out door venue where you can get a cider. But it is outdoors, even in August you need a jacket for the cool evenings. Locals know the deal and take blanket.
Only problem is the nearby eatery is just a snack/sandwich place. Go eat a big lunch the evening you go to a performance. It is located in Balboa Park, so after you find a parking spot, you will have to walk a bit to get to the theater. Not enough time if you go to a restaurant and try to get to the theater before curtain up.
