The La Mesa Chamber Joined the Party at Grossmont Center on November 1st at the “First Friday Night Market”
Grossmont Center was the place to be on Friday, November 1st as folks gathered to celebrate the vegan lifestyle in the parking lot between Chuze Fitness and Fuddrucker’s at the first Friday Night Market. Attendees began their food orders promptly at 5 p.m. when the event began, and they continued until the end of the evening. The Chamber was happy to host the beer garden and serve Mike Hess beer and Local Roots Kombucha to thirsty guests. The beer garden was moved for the evening and positioned to the back area of Fuddrucker’s, with added tables, chairs and belly bars to delight all of the attendees. The event was another successful Friday night in La Mesa!
