Located in the heart of Balboa Park, The Prado Restaurant is one of San Diego’s historic dining experiences. Featuring stunning indoor and outdoor seating, The Prado offers guests a first-class dining experience, coupled with the history and charm that defines San Diego’s Balboa Park.
We are so fortunate to have this historic restaurant in our group, and when the opportunity presented itself to host our September meeting there, let’s just say it was a ‘slam dunk.’ It was an intimate setting, perfect for our select-group. The vibrancy of teal colors and exposed wood beams captured the charm that San Diego/Balboa Park are known for! Edible Arrangements catered the “appetizers” of delicious fruit, and we heard from a local agent who spoke to the group about the importance of planning for life’s ups and downs, especially for small business.
All in all, it was great to get back to The Prado. The restaurant is an icon in San Diego, and especially so for a San Diego wedding. There is nothing more quintessential San Diego!

…We do it big. It was a celebration to end a truly great year; one in which we rebuilt; we expanded; we also down-sized; but most importantly, we handled and managed details that got us off track in the year or so prior.
Weddings of Distinction is truly a special networking group, and as such, the members are like family, so the holiday season is our favorite time to come together, be silly, eat good food and treats, and just enjoy one another’s company on a personal level. Yes, we all work together year-round, but our end-of-year holiday party is a time for us to let loose!
What did that mean? It means we all congregated to Frankie Hartwell’s house, of Hartworks Florals, and everyone brought something, food, drink(s), dessert(s) and more. We also had a pretty stellar gift exchange, and let’s just say, the alcohol and fuzzy blankets were a major hit! We also concluded with a killer raffle prize to one lucky member, and the special token?… an iPad!!
We had live musical entertainment; lots, and I mean lots, of food and drink! People came dressed to the nines, but some also donned funny holiday sweaters, because, well why not!?
A great time overall… The perfect way to end another year, and to lift spirits for the start of a new one!
