DEL MAR TIMES

Restaurateurs in Del Mar generously contribute to Twilight Concerts - again

By Barbara Myers

The 2004 Twilight Concerts are now completed but the series, a longtime Del Mar tradition, would not be possible without the generous support of our community. A variety of services are provided by many in the community and a special thank you goes to the Del Mar Foundation board as well as the City of Del Mar and Pat Vergne who coordinates the staff and our junior lifeguards.

The popularity of the Foundation's picnic dinners have increased the number of meals needed for each concert. Our local restaurants have been incredible in their willing response to our demands. Despite the increased number of dinners for each concert, the quality of presentation of our picnic meals has continued to satisfy our concert guests. The Foundation is grateful to our restaurant managers and owners. We would like to thank En Fuego, Sbicca, Pacifica Del Mar, Jakes, The Brigantine and Bully's for your generosity and many hours of preparation for each of our concerts.

If you are looking for a local restaurant to enjoy a wonderful meal, please select one who supports our own community year after year.

Thank you to our concert audiences for your support by attending our concerts and participating in our lottery. You help us continue our tradition of music in the park.
