TASTE OF NORTH PARK—Last month, Forbes magazine’s online site called the historic mid-city neighborhood of North Park one of the nation’s hippest neighborhoods, an announcement this blog, which is especially keen on all things North Park, repeated on September 24, 2012.
Fast forward to next Saturday, when the neighborhood will celebrate one of its biggest street parties of the year. Called, “A Taste of North Park,” the mid-day bash will be a splendid opportunity for locals to celebrate “our” new nationally recognized hipness.
So far, according to sponsor North Park Main Street, the “Taste” will include more than 30 restaurants, microbreweries, local galleries and boutiques that will toss open their doors and spill out onto sidewalks to tempt us with tantalizing samples of cuisine, craft beer and of course other cool things.
Proceeds from this event will benefit North Park Main Street, a non-profit organization committed to the revitalization of the North Park Business Improvement District and North Park’s historic Downtown.
