Taste of East Tosa dinner for TETNA members returns on Nov. 16

With so many great restaurants in East Tosa, it sometimes is hard to choose one for dinner. On Thursday, Nov. 16, you don’t have to choose just one. Come to our annual Taste of East Tosa dinner at the historic Kneeland- Walker House, 7406 Hillcrest Drive, for a sampling from several local East Tosa restaurants.

Taste of East Tosa is TETNA’s premiere adults-only event and a great opportunity to join with your neighbors, meet the TETNA board and celebrate all of the things we love about our neighborhood. Desserts and sodas will also be provided. You are welcome to bring your own alcoholic beverage or favorite cocktail, however, the Wauwatosa Historical Society prohibits red wines. Party attire can be festive, not fussy. A tour of the house is also available.

Last year’s meal featured delicious samplings from Café Blue, Tosa Bowl and Bun, BelAir Cantina, Hue Vietnamese, North Ave. Grill, Harwood Place/Lutheran Home, Tall Guy and a Grill, Red Dot, Cranky Als, Rocket Baby Bakery, Juniper61, Ted’s Restaurant and Irie Zulu. This year’s lineup is still being assembled. Check our website and Facebook page for updates.

The members’ event begins at 6:30 p.m., and tasting is at 7 p.m. Complete your RSVP form to RSVP online today reserve your spot for $10. RSVP via mail by Nov. 12 or online by Nov. 15.


TETNA scares up new tricks and treats for nighttime Halloween event

TETNA’s Halloween Trick or Treat nighttime event is back, this year with a new costume contest and special goodies for participating children, sponsored by Hue Vietnamese, Mathnasium and Philleo Agency Insurance.

Renew your TETNA membership now, and mark your calendars for the evening of Saturday, Oct. 28. This year’s event will begin with a kickoff party at center street park at 6 p.m. Let your children show off their costumes in the costume contest/parade. Children will be broken into 2 groups based on their ages (0-6 and 7-14), with prizes awarded in each age group!

Nighttime trick or treat will run from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Every year, TETNA offers this safe and fun event in our neighborhood. This year we are continuing our new tradition of opening the TETNA Trick or Treat event to all neighborhood blocks! So get your costumes, candy buckets and spooky faces ready to explore the Halloween festivities that our whole neighborhood has to offer.

Facebook event

The Trick or Treat event is for TETNA members and coincides with membership renewal, so even if you are not participating in Trick or Treat it is still time to renew.

Want to trick-or-treat?

Come to the registration and sign up! New this year, the first 500 kids to drop off their candy at registration will be given a reusable trick or treat bag and activity book. All participants will get a glow stick and a map with event info.

The cost to participate is a 100-piece bag of candy per child. The candy must be individually wrapped and factory sealed. Due to safety concerns, we cannot accept opened bags of candy.

If you also are handing out candy and want to keep the kind you bought, just let us know at in-person registration, or you can just sign up online. (If you still need to renew or join TETNA, you will need to complete registration first).

When and where to register

Center Street Park Pavilion

Register for Trick or Treat Now!
(If you are getting a message indicating “This is a private event..” remember to (1) login to memberplanet with the email you used to sign up for TETNA membership and (2) that you renew your membership)

Want to hand out candy?

Come to registration and sign up! You will get a TETNA Trick or Treat sign to put in your window to identify your house as a TETNA participant and some candy to get you started.

Note that this is a very popular event and we’re not able to provide all the candy that you might need to accommodate all the trick-or-treaters.

You can either purchase more candy on your own or turn out your light when the candy runs out. Note: if you don’t plan to accept candy from TETNA, you can sign up online and print your Trick or Treat sign at home.

Don’t forget about the teal pumpkin project too. Homes decorated with these brightly colored pumpkins indicate treats suitable for children who have been diagnosed with food allergies.

Not a TETNA member yet?

Become a member and register for the event at the same time! Our membership year runs from Oct. 1-Sept. 30. Register and pay online, or bring your dues, forms and candy to registration.

Volunteer

As always, we are looking for volunteers to help make this event successful. If you are interested in helping, visit signup.com/go/yJkyWKh.


Help us bring a new event to the Tosa East Towne neighborhood

The Tosa East Towne Neighborhood Association board approved up to $500 in this year’s budget as seed money to create a new event. We have received several suggestions and now are looking for residents willing to help organize one or more of the new events, such as:

  • Winterfest
  • East Tosa pub crawl
  • Roller skating night
  • Movie night (at Rosebud)
  • Outdoor sports game screenings
  • A kickball tournament
  • Your own new idea

If you would like to volunteer, or suggest a different idea, email us at info@tosaeasttowne.org. Events preferably have a revenue stream to help offset the cost, but we still may pursue certain worthy events without revenue streams if TETNA deems them beneficial to our members.
