2nd Annual “Taste of Surf City” – SCTA Member Cocktail Party

After the successful, sold out inaugural event in 2019, we are pleased to announce an expanded event for 2021!

Here are the details:

What: “Taste of Surf City” is an SCTA, members-only cocktail party. Heavy hors d’oeuvres, beer and wine will be served — all from Surf City merchants.

When: Thursday, September 23, 2021, from 5:00pm to 8:00pm.

Where: Surf City Yacht Club, 399 N. 9th Street

Who’s eligible to attend:

  • SCTA members who have joined and paid dues no later than August 15, 2021.
  • Members who purchase tickets by Sept 10, 2021 — pending availability (meaning, while tickets are still available; the 2019 ticket supply did sell out prior to the event).
  • SCYC capacity is limited to 300 people, so we can only accomodate 2 people per member household — aged 21 or over.
  • For those wishing to have more than 2 household members, please email us at surfcityta@gmail.com with your request. If we have cancellations or openings, we’ll alert you via email.

What is the cost: Tickets are $25 per person. This not a fundraiser and SCTA will not break even on this event. Merchants offer their goods at a loss — or are donated as a salute to the community.

Here are a few of the comments sent to us by those who attended the event in 2019:

  • “Thank you for organizing it and for holding an event where businesses and community can share and get to know each other.”
  • “Fabulous night, great talking with neighbors, business community went way above my expectations. Thank you for organizing, can’t wait to do it again next year!”
  • “Thanks so much for arranging this lovely event. It was so well organized; the food was delicious and an amazing group of people came together in friendship. It was a perfect evening.  Looking forward to next year’s event.”
  • “Thank you for all of the hard work to put on this event! We met a lot of people we didn’t know before.  The venue, the food and refreshments were super.   Great job!”

The 2019 event, held in the upstairs portion of the Yacht Club with a capacity of 150, was a sold out affair. For 2021, we’ve expanded the event and will be taking over the entire club — with double the capacity (now 300). As our membership has grown significantly since 2019, if you’re interested in attending, we encourage you to purchase your tickets soon!
