A Night At The Besties 2018
On October 18, the team at chef meal kits got to experience an amazing night on the Hornblower Cruise in celebration of San Diego City Beat annual, “A Night at the Besties.” A night filled with awards, food, open bar and live music, all packaged with an evening boat ride along the beautiful San Diego Bay. This is one of those nights we always mark on our calendar.
The night started off with a quick photo, a goodie bag, and an amazing sunset view as we sailed into the bay. Stepping into the main floor and being greeted by some of San Diego’s best voted restaurants, was the highlight of the night. There was Buona Forchetta, City Tacos, Barrio Dogs, Babycakes and Mish Mash, among other restaurants awarded top food categories. Making our way through the rows and sampling from every station we could, left us all with a long bucket list of must visit restaurants and a heavenly food coma.
Heading down to the bottom level, you could find a sweet treat from Donut Bar or a refreshing drink from One coconut water, along with a fully stocked bar. Food wasn’t the only entertainment there. This floor was packed with two Illuminate photo stations for a quick picture with your group and blackjack tables for some casino action. Needed a quick pick me up, no problem! Traveling Hands Co. provided a quick back massage to help you feel rested and keep the party going. If that wasn’t enough, step into the dance floor playing all your favorite R&B, hip hop and dance tunes, by the one and only DJ Ideal.
Finally, the top floor was the best place to end the night. Having two open bars on each side, one serving all you could drink Tito’s Vodka and an alternative choice of Ghost Tequila, there was something for everyone. The live performances from Trouble in the Wind, Whitney Shay Band and Schizophonics, provided a wide array of music for all. As people sipped on their drinks and enjoyed the view of the city lights, we were pleasantly surprised by the perfectly timed bay fireworks.
Whether you were there to receive an award, show support to your favorite restaurants, or just enjoy amazing food and a great view, we can all agree that the award for the best city should go to our amazing city of San Diego. So next year don’t miss out on one of San Diego’s most entertaining & savory nights and come join us at “A Night at the Besties.”
