A toast to a successful Taste and Sip of Bonita!

Tue, Jul 08 2014 03:24 PM Posted By: Phillip Brents

Bonitans came out in droves to support this year’s Taste and Sip of Bonita, held June 26 at the Bonita Golf Club. More than 20 vendors from the area offered tasty samples of food to guests while Classic Wines of California and Bay Bridge Brewing helped provide spirits for the grand 21-and-older event.

“It’s a great community activity,” noted Fran Cornell, who has attended the event for two decades. “It gets a lot of people out to the event who you don’t see that often. It’s a great community-building event. It gives an opportunity for restaurants that are close to the area and not so close to show off what they can do. It’s a wonderful community event to look forward to each year.”

New restaurants that had a chance to showcase their cuisine included Savoie French and Italian Eatery and Kasi Fresh Fast Indian, both from Otay Ranch Town Center, and Bonita’s Thai Taste 2.

The event served as the fund-raiser for the Bonita Museum and Cultural Center, 4355 Bonita Road. For more information, call (619) 267-5141 or email bonitamuseum@sbcglobal.net.
