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.

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.
