Beth and her family made their annual escape to Coronado!
Here he is ladies...the incredibly handsome and charming Joey Rodrigues...the GM and Maitre'D at Primavera...an excellent Italian restaurant on Coronado. In fact, I think Primavera has the best food on the island. Joey was voted Maitre'D of the Year for 2012. His grandfather started the restaurant. Stop by and tell him I sent you!
My lovely daughters wanted to get close to him also...
