Keeping It Cool in Mission Hills
The weather is at record setting highs with off-the-chart humidity as we try to fit all we have to share into the space allowed. With “hot” on our minds, following are some worthy mentions.
Hot Event Save-the-Date: Each August the BID takes a break from its monthly meetings and puts planning for the Mission Hills BID’s signature fundraising event, the Annual Taste of Mission Hills, in high gear. This year’s TASTE is happening on Wednesday evening October 10, from 5:00 until 9:00. Thanks to the generous sponsorship of BID board President Krista Lombardi, the live music of Sue Palmer & the Motel Swing Singers will add a Boogie Woogie vibe to this year’s TASTE. The list of participating TASTE venues is growing and will include Trust Restaurant Group’s latest venture, Fort Oak. Also, new to the TASTE line-up is Dixie Pops featuring fresh hand-crafted popsicles and ice creams. And, new chef/owner Luciano Cibelli at The Red Door will be offering amazing tastes of comfort food with an Italian flair. Longtime Mission Hills favorite chefs, bakers and baristas will be returning with delicious TASTE offerings. The BID’s tradition continues with three Old Town Trolleys transporting TASTE ticket holders to within steps of all participating venues. Please stay tuned to our website and social media accounts.
