Ready to sample some great food and enjoy live music? Then make sure you come on out to the Taste of Bonita event taking place this Monday at 5:30pm. The event will once again take place at the Chula Vista Municipal Golf Course on Bonita Rd.

Tickets for this great Bonita event are $20 per person and can be purchased at the door on Monday, or you can get them early at the Bonita Museum and Cultural Center, 4355 Bonita Road (open Weds-Sat, 10am-4pm).

The Taste of Bonita is a fun event that helps raise money for the Bonita Museum and Cultural Center. All of the proceeds go to help the programs and historical exhibits they have throughout the year. It was created by long time Bonita resident Diane Cousino to help raise money for local groups. The event skipped a few years, then was taken over by another Bonita resident, Carol Hammond, who wanted to help raise money for the new museum.

Make sure you bring your friends and family to enjoy some delicious selections from Bonita restaurants and grocery stores. There will be plenty of seating so you can relax and enjoy the evening. Participants this year include: Applebee’s, Bonita Golf Course, Bonita Vons, Chula Vista Golf Course, Costco Wholesale, Romesco, Starbuck’s Coffee Bonita, Subway at 805, Trader Joe’s, Via Lago Trattoria, Villa Bonita, Memelas & Thai Bistro and Bonita Kabob House.

Along with the great food there will also be drawings for prizes which include tickets to Legoland, USS Midway Museum, SOHO Museum, SD Repertory Theatre, Hornblower Cruises, SD Zoo, Birch Aquarium, SD Museum of Art, SD Air& Space Museum, Bonita Golf Course, Chula Vista Golf Course, South Bat YMCA, Birch Aquarium, SD Natural History Museum, as well as gift certificates to: Murrieta’s Restaurant, Ralph’s, Giant Pizza King, and Subway at 805, and Jalisco Mexican Food Restaurant & Café.
