Traditional Thanksgiving in San Diego

For many years our large group has dined at The Bahia in Mission Bay, and every year it is a smashing hit!!! Held upstairs in the ballroom over looking the bay, it is not only beautiful, but the food is outstanding. A very large buffet, with everything you desire, including, of course, the traditional Thanksgiving feast. Champagne, juice, Mimosa's and coffee are included. The buffet table is decorated with ice sculptures, and a piano is played for entertainment. I don't think I have ever had better bread pudding than there!!! After your meal, you get a ride around Mission Bay on a old paddle boat!! We love it, and it has become our Thanksgiving tradition. Call them for information.

HAS ANYONE HELD, OR ATTENDED A RECEPTION ON THE BERKELEY IN SAN DIEGO?

Thanks. Do you know how many attended?? I know they have their own caterer, and the menue is extensive, so maybe they used them. You also can use outside caterers.How was the setup inside, was it a sit down or buffet?? Thanks for the info.

INFORMATION ABOUT ADMIRAL KIDD CLUB OR NORTH ISLAND O CLUB IN SAN DIEGO

Sarfow, thanks so much for the information. I think Admiral kidd is going to be the place. We went to see it, and the upstairs room looks large enough for 150-200 for a sit down. A bit seedy, but my friend who is a florist said she will be able to dress it up. I think beef will be the choice, and we will just wait for a Saturday night. Thanks again.

INFORMATION ABOUT ADMIRAL KIDD CLUB OR NORTH ISLAND O CLUB IN SAN DIEGO

My daughter is talking wedding plans down the road, and I realize you have to reserve space up to two years ahead for the Admiral Kidd, not sure on the club at North Island. The church is in Coronado, but several people have told me the food at the club at North island was not very good. Has anybody had, or been to a party, or reception at either of these military clubs?? Just curious about what the food is like, and how the setup looks???? Any info will help us decide what we want to do.

Great Restaurant Needed In Franklin Tennessee!

I thought the fried food was just mediocre, and I love lots of fried food!! We tried several places in Franklin and all were just mediocre. I am sure there are tons of restaurants, and I have a feeling that many are great, we just do not know where they are!!! There is a great chance we will be relocating there, and I love franklin, a fabulous place to live, I just don't know where to eat yet!

Looking For A True Midwestern Italian Beef Sandwich...Sweet , Or Hot????

I have tried DiCrescenzo's, I live very near it.The sandwich is not that good. Very small, and the bread is not Gonella's, which is something it needs. I eat it because it was the only spot I knew of to get a IB, The place sold about two years ago to a family from Prospect Hts; Illinois. Now you would think they would get it right, but it actually seems to get worse everytime I buy one!!! I will try all the others to see who has the best! Thanks for the info.

I am going to spend several day's driving from one place to another trying all the Italian Beef's! What a way to spend your summer vacation! YUM. Thank you. Have a great time at your wedding, enjoy the food. We just got back from a family wedding, and the rehearsal dinner was catered by some wonderful pizza place. It was outside with a band and what a great time! The food was the best. Stop by on your way to Temecula, we can swap Chicago stories over a Italian beef!
