El Adobe is Certified Fresh!
The website is bouncing back fiercely! After years of working on computers the one thing I can tell you with certainty is that sometimes your operating system gets to a point where it's so clogged that it has to be reinstalled. Website databases are like that as well. I started redoing the website exactly one month ago and after about ten days most of it was done. However it was a mess. I had to get back to editing weddings so for a couple of weeks I had a note in the Wedding Venue Review section stating that we'd be back to it.
One of the venue review I had written just before the website went through it's transition was one for El Adobe Restaurant in San Juan Capistrano. I recall at the time telling Chef Bobby about it. I've never been so excited about a wedding venue review that I've brought them up in random conversations with a friend. "It's that place where the roof opens up" he said. Seems plenty of people have been to it. But we've all overlooked how spectacular the history is of this place. If El Adobe was human it would be Forrest Gump. Not in the mentally challenged way, but because it has so much American history associated with it.
When the first walls of El Adobe went up America was 21 years old and George Washington was president. We hadn't yet defeated the British and they were still set on hanging everybody who signed the Declaration of Independence back in Merry Ol' England. At least you can say that El Adobe has authentic Mexican food because at this time the property was located in Mexico. There's even the story about how Richard Nixon got El Adobe to change it's menu to Mexican food.
El Adobe is a fantastic wedding venue, and one of the oldest continuously running wedding venues in Southern California. It's a great read, please check it out!
