Taste of East Tosa was again held at the Wauwatosa Historical Society’s Kneeland-Walker House, which had been beautifully decorated for Christmas.. Attendees were able to take a tour of the historical mansion and learn more about its history.

We capped the night with a fun TETNA tradition, our board members dessert bakeoff. By vote of attendees, this year’s bragging rights went to board newcomer Laura Kirklewski for her Pumkin Bars. We can’t wait for next year to see the great tastes that will be available in our neighborhood.
