PLANNING FOR THE 2015 TASTE OF THE HEIGHTS
Alamo Heights Chamber of Commerce (AHCC) steadies its focus this month to begin planning its premier event, Taste of the Heights, that takes place each fall. We spoke with AHCC president Geoffrey Elkins, who told us about the chamber’s next steps. Slated for Sept. 10 at the Witte Museum, Taste of the Heights is the biggest event the chamber organizes each year. “Our mission in planning this event is for attendees to have the chance to be introduced to local businesses throughout San Antonio that they may or may not have experienced,” explains Elkins. An estimated 500 people turn out each year, and Elkins believes this will be the biggest and best event yet. The event will feature a large array of delicious food and spirits presented by local restaurants and liquor retailers from throughout the city. “In addition to great food and drinks, we will have local bands that will play in four separate areas that span all across the grounds, inside and outside the museum,” Elkins highlights. We asked Elkins what he enjoys most about this event in his capacity at the chamber. He states, “Aside from the camaraderie and collaboration with our members to plan this great event, we have awards that include the ‘best of’ in several categories. As president of the chamber, I get to announce the winners. We have celebrity judges, and it is a great time. “We are organizing all of our members into committees to get the Taste of the Heights planned,” said Elkins. Committees include entertainment, restaurants and spirits, silent auction and sponsorship.
