11th Annual Taste of Mission Hills Best Taste of 2023!

11th Annual Taste of Mission Hills Best Taste of 2023!

11th Annual Taste of Mission Hills took place Wednesday, October 11, 2023, 5:00PM – 9:00PM

By all measures it was the best taste of 2023, based on our survey and empirical and anecdotal evidence.

From the September 11th ticket sales launch to the evening of the 11th Annual Taste of Mission Hills we could see this year’s taste was capturing the attention of those curious about Mission Hills’ food offering as well as many who regularly dine in our neighborhood. And, a month later, attendees were vocal about the great time they were having, enjoying incredible tastes only offered in Mission Hills, dancing to live music with a three piece brass section and riding trolleys through our hills and valleys. 

New to our 26 venue line-up were Hills Wine & Spirits, whose participation through a special tasting license regaled discriminating imbibers with six tables of representatives pouring tastes from exclusive bottles and Burger Deck, upstairs at 3715 India Street, from the team that brought us Rubicon Deli, offering burgers made from a proprietary blend of chuck, short rib and brisket.

As a “business improvement non-profit” we also measure success based on data and metrics collected from the over 60% of attendees who purchased tickets online. During this year’s Taste, the BID delivered tasters to Mission Hills’ doorsteps who were introduced to our businesses for the first time. Would you have guessed that 68% of this year’s attendees were first time tasters? And, 52% of purchasers were from outside of the 92103 zip code. What was the age range of the largest group of tasters? Let your inner-nerd explore the analytics and see if they match your experience. We couldn’t decide which charts to include so we are including ALL of them!

If you attended, thank you! If you were one of this year’s 26 participating venues offering tastes and an 11th Annual Taste of Mission Hills sponsor,  Title Sponsor US Bank, Trolley Sponsors A Designed Space, Harley Gray Kitchen & Bar, La Puerta Mission Hills and Good Neighbor Sponsor Lazy Acres, thank you for helping us grow this event while keeping it affordable!

Please take a moment to relive the event by viewing the collection of event photographs on our event wrap-up.

Before the night was over, plans were underway for 2024, with venue owners saying “sign me up for next year!”
