    1. Celebrate Día de los Muertos at Suzie’s Farm!
      6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

      Dia De Los Muertos

      Gather with family and friends at Suzie’s Farm for a Dia De Los Muertos celebration to pray for and remember those who have passed. To make this a celebration in true Suzie’s Farm style, we have invited chef friends from San Diego and Baja to prepare traditional Mexican dishes. Bring remembrances to place at our Main Altar to commemorate your loved ones. While this is a holiday to remember those who have passed, it is also a fiesta – frivolous and formal and funny and full as life!

      Our Dia De Los Muertos celebration will be a family fiesta with tickets available for adults and children.

      This celebration is a benefit for the Front Burner Fund and Kitchen Commandos, two great, local non-profit organizations helping our food community.

      Read Lucila’s blog post, Que Viva La Vida on the celebration of Life and Death.

      The Details

      When: Saturday, November 2nd, 6:00 – 10:00pm
      Where: The Grove at Suzie’s Farm – 2570 Sunset Avenue, San Diego, CA 92154

      The Chefs

      Chef Flor Franco has helped line up some of the most acclaimed chefs from San Diego and Baja, including:

    1. 5th annual Maritime Gala Dinner & Awards Ceremony: The Sustainable Seafood Sensation Returns
      6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

      From the event website

      Once again the Fisheries & Seafood Technology Sector Working Group has stepped to the fore and pledged to provide  the freshest local sustainable seafood for this annual extravaganza celebration of all things maritime.

      The dinner sold out the last two years, so don’t wait to buy your ticket. The dinner will be held at the Liberty Station Conference Center on the evening of Nov. 7. …

      Sponsorship opportunities are available starting at $500, up to $5,000 for premium recognition as a Gold Sponsor. Remember that the Gala Dinner is one of the few public occasions during the year where students have the opportunity to rub shoulders with and see the industry at its best, but we need your financial support to make that possible.

      • Gold Level Dinner Sponsor – $5,000
      • Silver Level Dinner Sponsor – $2,500
      • (Bronze) TABLE Sponsor – $1,000

      (Each sponsorship above includes a table, seats 8 )

      Individual Tickets:

      • Non-members:  $100
      • TMA members:   $75
      • Educator’s discount:  $60 (please inquire for registration instructions)

      The Annual Sustainable Seafood Sensation Reception & Dinner that immediately follows Day One of the annual Blue Tech & Blue Economy Summit have elevated the “Maritime Gala Dinner” above and beyond “a celebration of all things maritime” to one of the culinary highlights on any seafood lover’s calendar. In 2012, under the capable direction of Chef/Event Architect Andrew Spurgin a dozen chefs prepared an array of seafood appetizers and a three-course dinner that rivaled any meal served in San Diego in recent history.

      The lineup for this year’s dinner is still building, but with a growing list of vendors supporting the dinner, now including Catalina Offshore, capitalizing on the incredible biodiversity of the Southern California Bight is bound to tantalize and delight any palette. Do not miss out! This event has sold out the last two years!

      Support OceanSTEM – This sustainable seafood dinner is the highlight of our sustainable seafood education events, “Consider a Fish”, which will be held throughout the year in 2014. Proceeds support OceanSTEM and help fund student interactions with industry professionals in a multitude of settings, including all-inclusive events such as this sustainable seafood reception and dinner. Request a copy of TMA Foundation Sponsorship Packages today, and help us foster the development of tomorrow’s Blue Tech leaders and innovators.

      An event like this would never be possible were it not for the support of key sponsors and supporters, including the following:

      • Carlsbad Aquafarm                                        
      • Catalina Offshore Products
      • Hubbs-SeaWorld Research Institute

    2. La Plancha Pop-Up Dinner: Celebration of Baja & Tequila Tasting
      6:30 pm – 9:30 pm

      Event Description:

      A unique collaboration of Baja and San Diego chefs to include Chad White of Plancha Baja Med, Javier Plascencia of Mision 19 and Jason Knibb of Nine-Ten. Feast upon 6 uniquely styled courses with handpicked tequila pairings selected by Marcela Valladolid of Hacienda de la Flor and Food Network’s Mexican Made Easy. The Plancha Baja Med tagline is “It’s like a high 5 in the mouth” and with this line up of chefs, it promises to do just that.

      The term plancha is Spanish for “iron” and is the type of griddle used in Mexican cooking, similar to a flat top grill. “Baja Med” refers to the culinary movement where Mexican, Mediterranean and Asian cuisine are fused together to create one mouthwatering flavor explosion. Chef Chad White began a journey of pop-up dinners in this style, where he is able to take creative liberty to cook what he wants, however he wants, wherever he wants. The sky is the limit. Now’s your chance to take part in the La Plancha experience.

      Date: Monday, November 18, 2013
      Time: 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm
      Location: Romesco Baja Med Bistro
