Gearing Up for Taste of Montrose
Tickets on sale now!! If you have never been to the Taste of Montrose, this year needs to be your first time! Taste of Montrose is a collection of local restaurants from the shopping district and the surrounding area that offers you a chance to “taste” the best they have to offer – all for $20. All you need to do is purchase your wristband either beforehand at the chamber office or on the day of the event, Sunday May 5, and off you go into a “world of diverse flavors” from the restaurants in Montrose.
If you have always thought about trying a restaurant in the area and have not had the opportunity, this is your chance. Some of the restaurants that participated in last year’s event are Zekes, Leo’s All Star Sports Bar and Grill, Leon Bakery, Pepe’s, Oceanview Bar and Grill, Paradis, All in 7 Stop Pizza, Giuseppe’s, Fratelli’s, Panera Bread and New Moon. You will find restaurants represented in the food court on May 5 at the entrance of the shopping park right at Verdugo Road and Honolulu Avenue. There will be a special roped-off section complete with tables, chairs and umbrellas for you to relax and enjoy yourself. To enter the area, all you need to do is purchase a wristband and you can sample to your heart’s content. The Taste of Montrose is happening in connection with the Wags and Whiskers ~ Kids and Critters event hosted by the Montrose Shopping Park Assn. along the 2200 and 2300 blocks of Honolulu Avenue. There will be plenty to do for the whole family and many fun activities for kids making this an event the whole family can enjoy. We are expecting the weather to be perfect in Montrose, so please come out and “sample” all the great food that Montrose has to offer and support your local businesses. Stop by the chamber office today to get your wristband!
Not only is the Taste of Montrose a great event, the cause it supports is even greater. All proceeds from the Taste of Montrose go to an organization called Prom Plus. Prom Plus was formed when a CV senior was murdered in 1991 at an unsupervised, post-prom hotel party. The response to this tragedy was the creation of an event for seniors after the dance, something that would keep our kids local and safe, yet still provide them with a fun time.
Since 1994, from midnight to 5 a.m. at the Crescenta-Cañada YMCA, Prom Plus has hosted a post prom event. At the “after prom” event, you will find pool tables, ping-pong, photo booths, DJ, a mechanical bull, rock climbing wall, arcade games, caricatures, music, dancing and food, food, food. If you would like to become a sponsor of Prom Plus or volunteer to help the organization, please contact Prom Plus at firstname.lastname@example.org.
