Taste Of Frankfort Avenue By Frankfurt Avenue Business Association Will Get A Makeover At Mellwood Art Center

The Taste Of Frankfort Avenue will be held at the Clifton Center and always offers the best prices. For the past 25 years until this year, the Clifton Center has finally been respectfully closed.
This is because the event has undergone various reforms and changes. Starting from new ownership, new date, new place to all new features. Even the event party just made a new debut on Sunday, 9 September.
The Taste Of Frankfort event will begin at the Mellwood Art & Entertainment Center. In its 26th year, the Taste Of Frankfort event will feature more than 20 samples from the newest restaurants across Frankfort Avenye.
No wonder this will bring in various shops such as pop-up shops, interactive booths to various other places. The presence of this is not enough because we have to directly thank the organizer, namely the Frankfort Avenue Business Association (FABA).

Because only the Frankfort Avenue Business Association or FABA has a major responsibility for the event. This was also expressed directly by Laurie Dobbins O’Neil, who is currently a president of a non-profit organization.
They even said that insiders told of several former Clifton board members taking part in challenging the organization. This is intended to be able to maintain an event called Taste Of Frankfort Avenue.
This is because the Taste Of Frankfort Avenue event has a deep history in a community. “The FABA board accepted the challenge,” O’Neil said. Even the proceeds from the Taste Of Frankfort Avenue event will be used as a beauty project.
It is planned that this beauty project will be held on Frankfort Avenue and carried out by FABA next year. Not only the Frankfort Avenue Business Association, but the United Crescent Hill Ministries are also providing emergency assistance to be provided to youth.

Or it will even be given to the older residents who are in the neighborhood. Basically, The Taste is an activity that is usually carried out every June and is targeted to be carried out this year.
It also already has several places that can be the venue for the event. Starting from the Mellwood Art Center as one of the main venues, and the second place is at the Mellwood Art Show.

It is planned that this event will be held on the weekend of September 8-9. “We love the idea of ​​collaborating with Mellwood, because we hope that visitors to Taste will attend an art exhibition and then come and eat,” said O’Neil.
There are many restaurants that will participate in The Taste of Frankfort Avenue event. Starting from Bourbons Bistro, Coal’s Artisan Pizza, The Champagnery, Comfy Cow, Heine Brothers, Silver Dollar and various other things.
In addition, there are also retailers such as 5-0 LOU and Margaret’s Consignment. O’Neil also said that he was looking forward to the type of food. Starting from the VIP Sip and Swig experience to the various people.
“There are many volunteers and community members who have helped and attended Taste Of Frankfort Avenue over the years,” he said. “We know this is a transition and greatly appreciate the support and enthusiasm that our FABA members, board and community have shown.” O’Neil said.

“Therefore, the business world is very interested in the candidate running to replace him. We feel that this Candidate Forum is a great opportunity not only for our business community. But it’s also for the entire 9th district to gauge exactly where each candidate stands on the issues that matter to them.”
