A unique country club setting with beautiful sunsets provided the perfect backdrop for this year’s popular A Taste of the Northside. Fiesta foodies gathered Wednesday night at The Club at Sonterra to sample fare from 60 local restaurants. The Brighton Center hosted the 17th annual event, where guests purchased all inclusive tickets, which included admission, food and drink tickets and 4 live bands.
It was a packed crowd outside on the lawn, with food going quickly. Some of the outside restaurants included Fleming’s, Texas Roadhouse, Orange Leaf, Maggiano’s Little Italy, Papouli’s, Salata, Perico’s, Kona Grill, Burger Fi, Brio and many more which you can see by clicking here.
For those that wanted a little more space they could purchase tickets to the Exclusive Queen of the Vine V.I.P. Lounge. The tickets weren’t cheap, but definitely worth the price! It was the place to see and be seen and Soul Flutter had access inside. The restaurants set up in the lounge included Piatti, Kirby’s, J. Prime, Aldaco’s, Scuzzi’s Italian Grill, Wildfish, The Club at Sonterra, Smoke, Top Golf, Paloma Blanca, Chama Gaucha and Bob’s Steak & Chop House.
HEB also provided this amazing food display with their best wines.
Drinks were offered by Social House and Frost 321.
Some of the VIP guests included on-air personalities like Shelly Miles and Esteban Solis from WOAI and KABB.
VIP guests were also given a complimentary glass and Fiesta medal and were treated to live music.
This was definitely a fun, upscale Fiesta event that we’ll for sure put at the top of our must-do list for next year!
Living with Soul,
