San Diego GTG January 16, 2007 - Tuesday

Yeah, I know, some weird date I will be in SD on this day only, and only at daytime, so... lunch, anyone?

Any suggestions as to where? If not, how about Balboa Park - I will be a tourist for the day Lunch at the Prado at noon?

Cool! Do you think we'll need reservation? (I have a "yes" from somebody else)

I actually may be able to come! As a relatively newbie (little over a year) it will be my first GTG. Since I'm from further up north, I don't have any suggestions for location, but count me in, tentatively.

It wouldn't hurt to make a reservation. The food's terrific there and it's a beautiful place.

LOL Gary please tell me you're joking, first saying yes, then asking

And by the way, just in case, LOL is Laughing Out Loud

Yeah, I used to think it meant GotToGo! I wished I could join you all as I used to live in San Diego and loved Balboa Park. Now I'm just jealous.

GotToGo? Isn't it our life motto's - we all just get to go... anywhere in the world!

DAX, it's easy to organize a GTG in your area - just start a post.

Thanks for the suggestion Faina, I'll remember that for the next time I travel alone. Actually, I've done it once in Germany. Have a great GTG in San Diego!

Faina, I'll be happy to join you for lunch at the Prado at Balboa Park at noon. Since I'm now a lady of leisure I'll be more than happy to pick you up at the cruise terminal and then redposit you after lunch. It's a very lovely restaurant, the food is good and it's quite reasonable. We might even be able to lunch outside if the weather cooperates. If the above works for you we can exchange e-mails to coordinate the logistics.

Treesa, thank you very much for your generous offer to drive, but another Fodorite whom I've met in person 3 times already and lives in the area, will pick me up.

Her name is Paula1470, we've met in Palm Springs, San Francisco GTG and had a lovely day out in the wine country.

And this is a good idea to post my e-mail, I usually do, but forgot this time

Excellent, Faina. I'll meet you at noon at the Prado. I'm e-mailing you my phone number as well as my cellphone just in case your plans change.

Happy Holidays to you and yours.

Per Faina's suggestion, the phone number for The Prado at Balboa Park Restaurant is 619 557 9441. I'll be happy to make a reservation for us but need a head count. Faina, let's get in touch prior to leaving on your cruise.

Budman, yes, I'll bring enough for everybody! All we'll need to do is to pick a bottle of wine

Treesa: yes, we'll definitely do it the week before. In any case, in January.
