Several dozen visitors made it to the Neighborhood Event at Tapestri Square last Sunday, October 18–and by all accounts, it was a success. In spite of unexpectedly overcast skies and the occasional few drops from the sky, people came and enjoyed the tours of Tapestri’s home models; the free food, wine and cheese, and harp music; and learning about what our local businesses have to offer.
The Event, co-sponsored by Tapestri Square and the Newton Booth Neighborhoods Association, brought together neighbors to look at a new housing development that’s both innovative in its architecture (with steps to the street somewhat resembling the famous New York brownstone homes) and elegant in its interior designs. Alex Ives, a member of the NBNA Board, provided harp music for guests at the main Tapestri model home above the sales office. In the same model home, Vizcaya, a local wedding, reception, and corporate events facility, provided exquisite hors d’oeuvres and desserts; while in another model, local restaurants Sweetwater and Tuli also provided free food. In a garage area below a third model home, Revolution Wines provided some of their wines to sample, along with cheese, crackers and fruit from the Sacramento Natural Foods Co-op. (A full list of the event’s sponsors can be found in our previous posts about this event.)
Unfortunately, your Blogger does not yet have pictures of the event. My digital camera went haywire last week…so I’ve been catapulted back to 20th century photographic technology. That means I had to finish shooting the entire roll of film, and now have to take it to get developed, before I can upload them to the Neighborhood Blog. I hope to post some pictures of the event here soon.
In the meantime, in the spirit of our Neighborhood Event, please take a little time one of these days to take a walk and look around the Poverty Ridge/Newton Booth/Alhambra Triangle neighborhood–and check out the interesting local businesses, large and small, that have so much to offer. And if you meet a neighbor on the way, be sure to stop and say “Hello.”
