During the six years I have owned and operated my real estate office in Mission Hills the excitement and attention to Mission Hills as a culinary destination has experienced exponential growth. As a food fan, I’ve enjoyed the experience of the continuing renaissance of excellent eating establishments and specialty drink shops, up close and personal. It is so much fun to invite friends, family, and clients to join me for something delicious at one of Mission Hills great spots. And, I always let my guests choose the place!
I’m excited to invite you to participate in celebrating what will certainly be one of my favorite Mission Hills events of the year, the 5th Annual Taste of Mission Hills. Our restaurants have promised to share just enough of their culinary creations to tickle your palate. Tuesday October 11th will be the perfect evening to mix and mingle with Mission Hills neighbors and visitors, stop by some of our local retail establishments that will be extending their hours, and indulge your palate and tummy with a “taste”.
Twenty-one venues offering international to local “tastes” will be participating from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Our new and long-established neighborhood purveyors of “tastes” are committed to captivating your tastes buds and enticing you to return. We extend a hearty thank you to each of the following participating venues:
Café Bleu , Cake – Your Local Bakery, El Indio, Farmer’s Bottega, Gelato Vero Caffé, Haloa Beverage Company, Harley Gray Kitchen & Bar, Kettle and Stone Coffee and Tea, Lefty’s Chicago Pizzeria, Luxury Farms, Meshuggah Shack, The Patio on Goldfinch, Pizza e Birra, The Red Door, Rita’s of Mission Hills, The Rubicon Deli, Shakespeare’s Corner Shoppe, Shakespeare’s Pub & Grille, Starlite, Toma Sol, Venissimo Cheese
And, again in 2016, Old Town Trolleys will transport “tasters” to locations along West Washington Street, Goldfinch Street, Ft. Stockton Drive, West Lewis Street, Reynard Way and International Restaurant Row on India Street. This transportation service is included in the price of your $25 “taste” ticket. The trolleys will run as a continuous loop from 5:00 p.m. until 9:30 p.m. A special “thank you” to our trolley underwriters Brad Sund – State Farm, John Ealy owner of Harley Gray Kitchen and Bar, and Krista Lombardi at Scott and Quinn Real Estate!
The 5th Annual Taste of Mission Hills event is hosted by the Mission Hills Business Improvement District, a non-profit 501 c 6 consortium of local businesses organized in 2004. The purpose of the BID is to promote, improve and foster business conditions in Mission Hills, an objective that benefits residents and merchants alike by creating and sustaining a vibrant and entertaining neighborhood. The annual “taste” is the BID’s major fundraising event of the year. Please join me in supporting the Mission Hills Business Improvement District and experience an evening of delectable “tastes” and drink specials in our lovely and historic neighborhood.
