The Rotary Club of Mountaintop has announced that it will be holding its fourth annual Taste of the Mountain event on Sunday, September 8th from 2:00 to 5:00pm at Edgewood in the Pines banquet facilities in Drums.
The event will feature food and beverages from twenty-four area restaurants, caterers, breweries, and wineries. Attendees will be able to sample dishes and drinks from each establishment, while enjoying music and conversation.
New this year is the venue. The ‘Taste’ event had been held at the Glen Summit Community House for its first three years, but growing attendance forced a change. According to Rotary Club president, Paul Cwalina, the event’s venue had to be moved to Edgewood in the Pines in Drums in order to accommodate the growing popularity of the event.
“In our second year of holding increase of 50% in ticket sales over the first year and last year, again, we recorded a 50% increase over the second year,” he said. “We were at the limits as far as space and parking. We were very fortunate to find a place to host the event like Edgewood in the Pines. It’s an impressive facility with plenty of room for the event and parking.”
Dan Costello, vice president of the Mountaintop Rotary, says that with regard to the restaurants attending, the core stalwarts will be there, as well as some new faces. “’Taste’ favorites Ice House Pub, Luigi’s, and Evans Roadhouse will be there, along with several others. New this year, we have Lakeside Restaurant, Frogtown Grill, Charlie Weaver’s, and Carmen’s Bakery & Deli. It’s going to be even bigger and better than last year,” he said.
Costello continued, “Of course, you can’t forget the establishments Susquehanna Brewing Company, Inn at Turkey Hill, Conyngham Brewery will be there, as well. They’ve become popular vendors among our attendees.”
With a golf course available at the new location, the Club will add a putting contest to the day’s events, in addition to raffles and a 50-50 drawing.
As always, there will be live music provided throughout the event. The Club is still finalizing those details, but it promises those who have attended in the past will again enjoy the musical backdrop to the event.
Tickets are just $25 for the event in advance or $30 at the door.
