The program was coordinated by the Coronado Point Condominium Owners’ Association and the crowd that filled the church was composed primarily of residents of the Coronado Point and The Landing, both located in close proximity to the Ferry Landing.

Speaking for an hour and 20 minutes, Bonelli first discussed what the 90-minute presentation would include:

Primavera Ristorante Happy Hour Hits The Spot
Updated: March 11, 2019 - 5:09 pm

Primavera Ristorante has always been my favorite restaurant. I have often had dinner there over the years but I had never tried the Happy Hour menu until recently.

On a Monday night my husband Dan and I went to Primavera for Happy Hour. We were surprised to find customers waiting by the door before the restaurant even opened. By the time we got a table, the bar area was full with about 10 people sitting at the bar and two couples sitting at tables next to ours. As we looked around we noticed locals as well as out of town people. There was happy chatter in the background and it sounded like everyone was having a good time.

The friendly and helpful waiter Manny brought us the menu and I have to say it was hard to chose a few dishes since they all sounded very appetizing. There are seven appetizers on the menu from Calamari Fritti to Scampi all Griglia. We decided to order four appetizers and share them. While we waited the waiter brought us fresh warm bread with butter. The first dish that arrived was Cozze e Vongole, steamed clams, mussels, garlic, herbs and white wine. Since I don’t eat shellfish Dan enjoyed the entire dish by himself.

Chamber Of Commerce Military Ball Honors Military Spouses Like Zee Regner
Updated: March 08, 2019 - 1:07 pm

Zee Regner is a Navy military spouse, the wife of Petty Officer Second Class Julius Regner, and an Administrative Assistant in the Sales Department of the Hotel Del Coronado. Regner and legions of military spouses who have done their part to serve our country are collectively being honored at the Coronado Chamber of Commerce Military Ball to be held Saturday, April 6, 2019, at the Hotel Del.

Regner is a native of Riverside, a graduate of Rancho Verde High School where she played four years of tennis, and the daughter of parents Tac and Cu Sam, who immigrated to the United States in 1971. Going into our interview, my assumption was her beautiful, but unusual first name might have something to do with the Zuiderzee North Sea Inlet adjacent to the Netherlands, but she laughed and politely dismissed that theory. “I am one of 12 kids, I have seven sisters and four brothers, and all of us are named after a flower. I have a really big family.”

One Person’s Unwanted Items Can Truly Be Another’s Treasures
Posted: February 28, 2019

Imagine opening a 1920s steamer trunk full of ladies clothing, hats and silk stockings, taking a close look at a Philco radio, or a framed picture of someone’s beloved cat. These kind of items all hold a patina of age and mystery. For those who love antiques looking through some of the items is magical and the idea of being able to purchase something that belonged to someone who lived many years ago is intriguing. It’s a way to connect one to the past.
