Taste of the Heights connects area restaurants, music, community
For the past three years, Heights Youth Club (HYC) has celebrated the vibrant Heights restaurant scene with its annual Taste of the Heights event. Guests sample food from local restaurants, sip a soft drink or glass of wine and enjoy local entertainment.
This year's event will be held June 6, from 6 to 9 p.m., at HYC’s facility, at 2065 Lee Road (near Heights High). Participating restaurants include perennial favorites such as the Mad Greek, Tommy's, Pizzazz and the Tavern Company, and newcomers such as the BottleHouse Brewery, Barle Soup & Sandwich, the Rib Cage and the Katz Club.
"This year we encourage people to view the event as a relaxing evening out with friends and neighbors," said co-chair Angela Karges. "In the past, people tended to eat then run, missing out on enjoying the truly special space we have created."
An added feature of this year's event is a performance and salsa lesson by Latin Soul Ballroom.
Proceeds from the event support HYC’s mission of providing high-quality programming that enables Heights children to reach their full potential as productive, responsible and caring adults.
Tickets are available for $50 at www.heightsyouthclub.org or $60 at the door. For more information, contact Kimberly Morgan at 216-253-1639.
Kimberly Morgan is the board administrator for the Heights Youth Center Board of Directors.
