Taste of Lighthouse Point 2015

Taste of Lighthouse Point 2015

Win this golf cart at the Taste of Lighthouse Point 2015!

January 20, 2015, 6-9 pm at the Lighthouse Point Yacht & Racquet Club. Always a great event with friends and neighbors, I discovered some of my favorite new dishes and restaurants at this event, such as the Ahi tuna won tons and lobster rolls at the Nauti Dawg Marina Cafe- why didn’t I know about these before??) I had such a bad dining experience at J Mark’s I refused to go back, but this event turned me around and I accepted the managers encouragement to come again because their food was so good at the Taste. I have been back (ahi tuna sliders, yum!)

Only 500 tickets will be sold for the raffle. Call 954-946-3838 to order. You do not need to be present to win.
