SDBloggers Holiday Event at Saltbox

We've decided to keep it simple.

Let's just mingle over drinks and delicious food.

It's been a while.

The venue:  If you haven't been to Saltbox Restaurant yet, you're in for a treat. Saltbox, is about local flavor, fresh ingredients, comfort food and craft cocktails.

Food and drinks:  We'll be able to sample some tray passed menu items, compliments of Saltbox. Select beer, wine and craft cocktails will be heavily discounted, just for us, at $5 per drink. Have a look at the menu and you'll be sold.

Parking:  Horton Plaza will validate your parking for 3 hours, if you validate prior to 9pm. Saltbox is a part of the new Palomar San Diego hotel, which also has it's own valet (at your cost).

Time:  From 7:30pm - 9:30pm, but feel free to stay later.

All we ask is the following:

AWESOME UPDATE:The Palomar San Diego is going to offer one SDBlogger a free night stay! All you need to do is head over to their Facebook page and like it. Check their Facebook page on the day of our Meetup for more details. Winner will be announced at the Meetup.

Palomar San Diego will also offer us a media rate of $125 per night (plus tax) should you want to make an overnight stay out of the event. Think swank room with Frette sheets, rainforest shower, Free WiFi and more! They even have a hosted wine reception in the evening for hotel guests. Please email [masked] if you'd like to reserve a room.

They will also take any interested bloggers on a quick tour of the hotel at the beginning of the Meetup. You may take your drink with you.

LOCATION/WEATHER UPDATE: Because it's a little chilly, we've moved the Meetup to inside Saltbox in the bar area. Plenty of room to meet and greet here along with a nice, swanky vibe!

Twitter hashtag is #sdbloggers. Please tweet, tweet, tweet!

Please keep your RSVP up to date as there are people on the waiting list.

See you there!

    Beautiful venue however the temperature in Saltbox was hot. Wasn't sure if a lot of the attendees were actual bloggers, it seemed like a few attendees didn't talk much about blogging or did actual blogging. Different group of attendees than the last SD Bloggers event at RA Sushi a few months back.
