Popular Taste of La Mesa expands to include county

The La Mesa Chamber of Commerce announces that the annual “Taste of La Mesa” has been renamed and moved to a larger and fully air-conditioned venue, with ample parking this year.

The “Taste of San Diego – East” will be held at the Town and Country San Diego Hotel, 500 Hotel Circle North, in the Golden Ballroom on Monday, June 10.

The popularity and crowd of this event has outgrown the current location of the La Mesa Community Center where it was held for the past 10 years.

For the first time in years all sponsors, food and catering vendors, the silent auction and raffles will be held in the same air-conditioned room, as attendees “taste, savor and mingle” with ample space to interact and enjoy the great food samplings prepared by participants.

The Chamber is thrilled to announce the Presenting Sponsor for this totally new venue is EDCO.

To date they are joined by: Supporting Sponsor: Barona Resort & Casino, Crème De La Crème Sponsor – Sycuan Casino Resort, Bon Appétit Sponsors: AT&T, California Coast Credit Union – La Mesa, The Hills Local Pub, San Diego County Credit Union – La Mesa and San Diego Eye Professionals.

The Media Sponsor, Discovering My City Magazine, is joined by Logistical Sponsor Town and Country San Diego and Audio-Sound Sponsor, Studio M.I.F. All printing is sponsored by AAA Imaging with graphics designed by Kostedt Design & Marketing.

The evening will be captured by CeCe Photo and Sandra Small/ Photographer, with an interactive video of the evening produced by Community Spectrum.

“Guests will have plenty of room to interact and enjoy the great food samplings prepared by our participants and visit with our evening sponsors. We plan to have all announcements made in the center of the room, in ‘the round,’ to further enhance the evening,” said Mary England, President & CEO of the La Mesa Chamber. “Add the benefit of ample complimentary parking for our event and we have a recipe for total enjoyment.”   

Ticket pricing prior to June 4 (pricing increases after that date) which includes complimentary parking and unlimited visits to all food vendors is: VIP tasting, $60 for three hours of tasting and entry into a special free raffle, 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. and General Admission $40 for 2 hours of tasting from 6:00p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
