These six San Diego eateries have not only survived but thrived in the economic downturn by offering diners that little something extra—be it ultracompetitive prices, a deejay spinning background beats or a vodka list 100 bottles deep. Oh, yeah, and the food’s pretty amazing, too.

From Farm to Table

50 People to Watch in 2010

For the past 10 years we have published our "50 People to Watch" issue, highlighting 50 San Diegans who are moving the needle and making a difference in our community. To celebrate this issue, we hold a much-coveted invitation-only party to honor our top 50 people to watch.

Opening Act

Patrons of "Some Enchanted Evening," the gala opening of the Conrad Prebys Theatre Center at the Old Globe Theatre, were treated to a performance by Kelli O’Hara and Paulo Szot, the stars of Broadway’s South Pacific, accompanied by a live orchestra. Honorary chairs were Karen and Donald Cohn, Kathryn Hattox, Conrad Prebys and Debra Turner, Darlene and Donald Shiley, Sheryl and Harvey White, and Erna and Andrew Viterbi.

Sporting Chance

Project Active, a nonprofit that distributes sports equipment to kids in war-torn nations, hosted a benefit gala at La Valencia Hotel. Some 250 guests, including Andy Baldwin of ABC's The Bachelor and Project Active founder Mitch Thrower, raised enough to send more than $150,000 worth of aid supplies and sports equipment to the needy. The evening featured live music by Jasmine and MattCommerce and a special performance by opera singers Victoria Robertson and Daniel Hendrick.

Knight of Nights

The 80th-anniversary Ruby Jubilee Candlelight Ball at The Grand Del Mar generated a whopping $2 million for Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla. Betty Knight Scripps served as general chairman of the black-tie affair for the seventh consecutive year. More than 430 guests were treated to a glamorous red-carpet entry, gourmet dining, dancing to the Bob Hardwick Sound and stunning holiday décor. Academy Award–winning actor and La Jolla native Cliff Robertson was the special guest of honor.
