Magical Combination

Oct 02, 2019

To the Editor:

On Friday evening, Sept. 20, the Surf City Taxpayers Association held its first-ever Taste of Surf City Member Cocktail Party at the Surf City Yacht Club. The sold-out event brought together 150 homeowners with 15 local merchants for an evening of hors d’oeuvres, desserts, wine, beer, music, conversation – and a spectacular September sunset.

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, jalapeño poppers to Swedish meatballs, finished off with assorted cookie bars, fudge and pumpkin spiced coffee.

A special thank-you goes out the 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.

What was apparent from the start to the finish of the evening was that the friendliness and pride and communal spirit that radiates throughout Surf City was a magical combination for all who attended. On behalf of the board of the taxpayers association, thanks again to all who participated.
