Here at Kissing Tree, we’re thrilled to be part of the San Marcos Community, especially when it involves helping out our local nonprofit organizations. This year, we’re proud to sponsor the 11th annual TASTE event benefiting United Way of Hays and Caldwell Counties. From Dripping Springs to Luling and all of the cities in between, our area has some of the tastiest food in Central Texas, and the TASTE Tour 2020 is your opportunity to sample fantastic restaurants while helping kids and adults in need.
Introducing the TASTE Tour Passport
Most years, TASTE is an in-person event for more than 400 people, so the circumstances of this year required that event organizers re-imagine the event into something that would be safe for both supporters and local businesses. They came up with the idea of creating a TASTE Tour 2020 Passport that gives supporters discounts and treats at area businesses.
