World of Tastes Needs You

Passport Updates

Many are aware of the recent closure of Mo & Lu Pasta. I had the opportunity to speak with several people yesterday at the LC Farmers Market about how sad and surprised they were to see them go. LCFF recently bought the new black planters in front of their location in part to honor  that the location had finally gotten a business that was rapidly becoming another of our Lake City gems. The closure of Mo’s as well as El Norte, both participants on our “World of Tastes in the Heart of Lake City” passport program, serves as a strong reminder how important it is that we support our local businesses.

The “passport” program is just one of the ways we are trying to support our Lake City businesses at no cost to the owners. I am happy to say that the new establishment, Beyond the Bowl, will continue to provide stamps on the “Mo and Lu Pasta” circle of your passports.

Please do remember to turn in your passports and work to get your stamps on a level that is comfortable to you. The program runs until September 22nd and just four stamps enters you into a prize drawing. Remember that the first 20 people to turn in their passport in to the Kaffeeklatsch with 7 or more stamps gets a free $10 gift card to the Farmers Market.

With re-development sure to come and prices raising daily for all of us, many of our mom and pop businesses are just hanging on. It is common for these owners to be working for a paycheck and not for a profit. Let them know you support them and that you are glad they are a big part of Enjoying Lake City.
