The beginning of the school year at La Jolla High means dazzling Friday night light’s, excited students, and the highly anticipated first dance – Homecoming. The school’s annual Homecoming festivities are taking place this weekend and should be the highlight of the year for many students. Along with the football game and dance, many preparations are taken to make sure that this Saturday evening will a night to remember for years to come. Here is a first hand look at some of the businesses in La Jolla that will be helping make sure this weekend is a success.
The largest challenge many students face is taking the step to ask one of his or her fellow classmates to Homecoming. Each year students pull off more creative and unique ways of asking. From Krispy Kreme Doughnuts to candle-lit signs on the beach, the possibilities are endless. After asking your date, the next step is making sure your corsage & boutonniere are ready to go for the dance! Several florists in La Jolla hand make hundreds of these gorgeous designs every October. Adelaide’s Florists & Decorators has been beautifying La Jolla for over 75 years. Adelaide’s corsage selection ranges from Gardenias, “Champagne Bubbles”, to Orchids. Their array of Boutonniere’s range as well, matching respectfully to their counterpart. Another great florist located right in the heart of the village is Bridget’s Blooms. Offering a wide selection of traditional corsage’s & boutonniere’s, you’ll be sure to find something special for you and your date! Bridget’s is the perfect place to sit outside, relax, and take in their expansive garden while waiting for your arrangement to be made. Prices at both floral stores range from $25 and up for corsage’s and $8-$15 for boutonniere’s. Be sure to visit their websites for more pricing details and to order online.
In addition to making sure that you look stunning from head-to-toe, it’s important that your transportation is just as chic. Top Dog Limo Bus offers some of San Diego’s most popular party buses and limousines. Choose from their stretch Hummer limousines to their 30 passenger limo bus. Great for larger groups going to a dance, Top Dog offers fun, oversized, and posh interiors that resemble the dance floor. Celebrate all the way to the dance and all the way back home!
Lastly, the final step in ensuring that Homecoming will be a success, is choosing the right restaurant! The most memorable part of the evening is going to a fantastic dinner and posing for dozens of group pictures. Choosing the right restaurant is key for a successful dance. Numerous restaurants in La Jolla offer great atmospheres and space for large formal groups. Located on Prospect street, Cafe Milano, offers an amazingly priced dinner for private parties. For groups with 10-15 people, Cafe Milano offers a four course menu starting at $22.95. Zenbu Sushi Bar also offers a great venue in La Jolla for large groups. Since 2000, Zenbu has been feeding La Jolla residents with environmentally sustainable fresh fish and locally home grown meats from Palomar Mountain Ranch. Unique presentations and the highest quality ingredients possible should make for a great dinner! Visit their website for more information on hosting an event and for menu details.
We hope that with this information your Homecoming weekend is fabulous! Be sure to also support the La Jolla Vikings by going to cheer them on this Friday night at 7:00PM at Gene Edwards Stadium. The annual Homecoming parade is set to take place at halftime and the theme this year is “Circus”. Do you have any family for friends attending Homecoming this weekend?
