CHAMBER CHIT CHAT

By Ken Rausch
Executive Director

One of the membership categories that has grown at the Chamber of Commerce is “restaurants.”  With over 30 restaurants in El Monte and South El Monte now members, we wanted to create an event that we could showcase the fine culinary offerings in our community.   On March 27th at 5:00 p.m., we will be hosting, in collaboration with the El Monte Rotary Club, “The Tastes and Sounds of El Monte and South El Monte” at the Grace T. Black Community Center.  This event will provide a venue for you to sample the various menu items of our member restaurants, while at the same time, be entertained by local musicians.  Also featured will be a selection of fine wines and craft beers for your enjoyment.  The cost of the event is $25.00 per person which includes entry into a drawing for a Grand Prize. The official promotion for this event begins this week, so look for those email blasts and solicitation from Rotarians and Chamber members.
To date, the participating restaurants are:
Art’s Burgers, The Deli Box, Goody’s, Smart n’ Final, El Salvadoreno Restaurant, Vitas de Dulce, DoubleTree Hotel, Annia’s at the Airport, Courtyard by Marriott, Kentucky Fried Chicken, El Patio Bar and Grill, Birrierias Tlaquepaque, Jolly Jug, Tasty Choice #2,  Ramada Inn, Tito’s Market, Di Pilla’s, Denny’s, Subway, El Sombrero, The Post, Big Famous Hamburgers & Authentic Mexican Food, Ignacio’s Sports Bar & Grill, Shakey’s and Progress Brewery.
We look forward to your support of your Chamber of Commerce and the Rotary Club, while at the same time enjoying the tastes and sounds of El Monte and South El Monte.
