The Kiss Off, San Diego
We were contacted early Friday morning by local Photographer and Artist, Micheal Realpeople to see if we would be interested to cover an event he was organizing at the Embarcadero in San Diego. Here, there is a 25ft statue of the famous “Sailor Kiss” from WWII.
This statue will be relocated in a month or two and replaced with something else – I heard a “bronze”. Michael mentioned that the San Diego Port Authority was giving him a headache as he wanted to gather 25+ couples for a final “Kiss Off” to the iconic statue.
NBC News, CNN, and even Ellen Degeneres got wind of this and things started moving very rapidly!
Finally the Port Authority gave its blessing and the event proceeded without a hitch on Saturday morning.
Here are some of the links from the mornings coverage:
