Graduation Dinner

deniseredeker | Jan 7, 201410:03 PM

Hi San Diego Chowhounds! I am in need of a little foodie help here. My kid is graduating (yay!) from USD in May (Memorial Day weekend to be exact) and I've got a bit of family coming in from around the state to be there for the ceremony. While I've yet to understand why a university would hold it's graduation on a holiday weekend, thus ensuring the frustration of all non-locals, I've still got to plan a graduation dinner on the Sunday evening of Memorial Day weekend. I will have between 10 and 15 family members for dinner. Because of the busy holiday weekend, a lot of places I've checked are not accepting reservations. Though the graduating senior, his father and I would love to hit up some of the more deliciously adventurous spots in town, the family would prefer something more...basic (heavy sigh). Not too expensive please (I've got college loans to pay back!) - maybe $15 or so per person per entree. And somewhere in San Diego, downtown, beach areas, Point Loma, or near the University would be great! Thank you in advance! If you're coming to Sonoma County I'd be happy to return the favor!
