I'm helping to plan a bachelorette party in Santa Barbara for a friend. Problem is, neither the bride nor anyone in the bridal party are from SB!
I know there are plenty of options on State St, but we need help choosing places sight unseen. We're all approaching 30 and don't want to be harrassed by frat boys but a little bit of rowdiness for the bride is fine. What we DO want: lunch place <$20pp, any food type, with cozy, quiet atmosphere for girls...something along the lines of a Marmalade Cafe (a chain that's available in LA). For dinner, the bride requested Mexican, with good margaritas.
We're staying at Hotel Santa Barbara, so anything within walking distance is an added bonus.
