On Friday, September 20, a group of 150 Surf City Taxpayer members gathered for the first ever “Taste of Surf City Member Cocktail Party” at the Surf City Yacht Club.
The sold-out event brought together 150 homeowners with fifteen local merchants for an evening of hors d’oeuvres, desserts, wine, beer, music, conversation – and a spectacular September sunset. See more photos from the event below.
It was unanimously agreed that this first collaboration between the Surf City Taxpayer Association, merchant community and Yacht Club was a smashing success. So many neighbors met for the first time. Many rekindled old relationships. Over 25 different food options ranged from a Taco Bar, to empanadas, shrimp cocktail to gourmet pizza, jalapeno poppers to Swedish meatballs…finished off with assorted Cookie Bars, Fudge and Pumpkin Spiced Coffee.
A special “thank you” goes out the Surf City Yacht club for providing the perfect local venue. And thanks to all our participating merchants: Anchor Produce, Anchor Wine & Spirits, Baked on the Beach, Blue Claw Seafood Market, Country Kettle Fudge Shop-Surf City, How You Brewin, Little Bite of Italy, Mario’s Italian Market, MKT Eatery, Okie’s Butcher Shop, Panzone’s Pizza-Surf City, Shore Fire Grille, The Cheese Shoppe, The Sandbox Café – Surf City and Wally’s.
