Come join the 20th annual Taste of UA on August 9th in Northam Park. Taste of UA is a great way to get face-to-face with local business’ and really feel the energy that they provide for the community. While local area eateries will provide samples of dinner dishes. Taste of UA is not just a sample of Upper Arlington’s best restaurants, it’s also a taste of the communities local businesses. There will be live bands and entertainment for children of all ages. Look for fan favorite vendors like Café DaVinci, Bruegger’s Bagels, and Rusty Bucket Corner Tavern. Taste of UA caters to more than 10,000 friends and family and has become one of Upper Arlington’s biggest fundraisers. Typically 2 large tents are set up with tables for eating, however attendee’s are encouraged to bring chairs, and blankets if they would like to set up around the park to get good seats for the music and entertainment.
One thing I’d really like to emphasize a little more is how great Café DaVinci really is. I remember being in high school when it first opened, and my friends and I would go there after school, or sports games just to hangout. We became friends with Tina (one of the owners) and have been going ever since. What has astonished me is how incredibly kind and friendly Tina is toward all of her customers. She is absolutely fantastic, and her generosity is infectious. I truly believe it’s worth coming to Taste of UA just to get to meet Tina Elsea, and also to get a taste of some of Café DaVinci’s Gelato. Yum!
Mark your calendars for Thursday, August 8th for the Taste of UA and get a great look at the awesome community that is Upper Arlington, and don’t forget to stop by the Keller Williams Classic Properties tent to say hello!
