Taste of Temescal postponed


In light of the latest guidance from Governor Newsom, we will be postponing the Taste of Temescal, likely to May 2020. We will issue refunds to all who would like one. We will be honoring all the tickets at our postponed event and so urge all who can, to keep their tickets, since the proceeds go to our local schools and nonprofits.
