»News from the Crescenta Valley Chamber of Commerce

Yummy Event Hosted by CV Chamber

“In our hectic, fast-paced, consumer-driven society, it’s common to feel overwhelmed, isolated and alone. Many are re-discovering the healing and empowering role that community can bring to our lives. The sense of belonging we feel when we make the time to take an active role in our communities can give us a deeper sense of meaning and purpose.”  Robert Alan

Come and be part of our community and enjoy dinner with your neighbors on Wednesday, Nov. 9 at the fourth annual Taste in the Foothills at the Marketplace Shopping Center (Ralph’s.) For only $15 for adults and $10 for children 5-12 years old, you can sample tastes from great restaurants. Tell your friends to come and “taste” with us. Entertainment will be provided by the Crescenta Valley High School Jazz Band.

These restaurants take time out of their busy days and already strapped businesses to set up a booth and bring complimentary tastes of their delicious food, all for the community. Do the community a favor and at the Taste in the Foothills mark down your favorite “tastes” and please visit these restaurants’ actual location and have lunch or dinner at their restaurant. Restaurants that are successful in the Crescenta Valley help our town be successful.

One such restaurant you should visit is Frank’s Famous Kitchen and Bakery, where the food is amazingly fresh, the associates are friendly and the atmosphere is always comfortable. The food they serve is always prepared from scratch with high quality ingredients. Please visit them and sample a taste at our event next Wednesday and then have lunch or dinner at Frank’s Famous Kitchen and Bakery located at 3315 N. Verdugo Road in Glendale.
