Good Morning San Diego Chowhounds
Several times a year some of the local SD Chowhounds get together for a chance to meet, greet and break bread together. It's been too long since the last function, but that is about to change. Below is the preliminary information on a San Diego Chow function that is being planned --
When - October 29, 2005 (this is a Saturday)
Time - 6:30 PM
Where - Trattoria di IV (Santee on Mission Gorge Rd)
Cost - $32/person, not including beverages, which are VERY reasonable here
Menu - Prix Fixe to include appetizer/soup or salad/choice of 2 entrees/choice of 2 dessert. The choices menu are being e-mailed to me on Monday.
Trattoria di IV is owned and operated by Lilliana Navarette who has cooked at a number of upscale places around the county. She and her partner Denise will be cooking as part of the month-long Chef Celebration San Diego '05. It is also one of the few small restaurants in the East County offering really great food.
There will be seating for 20 people at this function, 3 seats have already been reserved. If you are interested in attending, please e-mail me privately - off list - since I am the co-ordinator for this function. (You may get stuck in my Earthlink spam blocker, please put something about Chowhound on the subject line so I can retreive your e-mail, or just send an "Allowed Sender" request, which Earthlink will prompt you to do)
The Chowhound team usually requests that organizational details and such for any function not be conducted on-list, which seems like a fair request. There is a Yahoogroup set up called SD Chow to take care of the details and planning. Information and additional details will be communicated using that e-list. To join you need only send a blank e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
I will post the prix fixe menu on this board on Monday so that anyone interested can see what is being offered, but after that most of the rest of the information about this function will be on SD Chow in order to comply with the Chow teams directives.
Once again, if you are interested in attending this function please contact me directly at email@example.com
Hope to see you all there - or at least 17 more of you. San Diego Chowhounds are a fun group of people
