Alameda Business Association (ABA) together with the Westminster Presbyterian Church and the Shasta/Hanchett Park Neighborhood Association sponsored the 20th Annual Community Tree Lighting Friday evening, December 6, 2013 at Westminster Church in San Jose.
A fabulous holiday musical program was provided by local schools and youth groups including the River Glen School Estudiantina, the Trace Elementary School Choir, the Luther Burbank School Mariachi and the Dance Evolution dancers from Hoover Middle School. Mayor Chuck Reed and Councilperson Pierluigi Oliverio presented Betty Slater with a plaque to commemorate Betty’s tireless work over the last 20 years organizing this event. Betty serves both the Westminster Church and the ABA as an important and steadfast contributing member. Elvis tribute artist, Rick Torres, closed the proceedings with a medley of classic Christmas rock and roll favorites sung in the style of “the King.” Elvis gave scarves to his most adoring (and screaming) fans.
Soup Tasting Contest
Five local restaurants participated in the ABA’s “Sip of Soup” tasting contest on a cold December evening perfect for enjoying soups of all kinds. Neighbors and friends were given a chance to sample and judge the best soups in The Alameda area. Soups were ranked on a one to five scale. Each restaurant had their own dedicated fans. Participating restaurants included the Blue Fin Restaurant (Japanese), Pasta Pomodoro (Italian) Savory Kitchen (Culinary School), TeeNee Thai (Thai) and Habana Cuba. All of these establishments are located right here on The Alameda with the exception of Habana Cuba which is located nearby on Race Street. The soup ranking was in the following order:
|TeeNee Thai||Tied for Second Place|
|Blue Fin||Tied for Second Place|
|Savory Kitchen||Close Runner-up|
|Pasta Pomodoro||Close Runner-up|
The ABA would also like to thank all of our participating restaurants for sharing a sample of good things to eat here on and near The Alameda.
