BBA Annual Rendezvous at Musang
Mon., Dec. 16, 5:30–8 PM
2524 Beacon Ave S.
Beacon Business Alliance cordially invites our Beacon Hill business and property owners—and community stakeholders of all kinds—to join us in partnership with our neighborhood’s newest and much-anticipated restaurant, Musang, for our Annual Rendezvous! Together we’re excited to host a specially curated dinner where chef Melissa Miranda and her Musang team will showcase the restaurant’s incredible Filipinx offerings.
Tickets are $35 per person and include a multi-course, family-style dinner to remember. Your first drink, wine or a non-alcoholic beverage, is on us!
We’ll share a retrospect of the happenings and accomplishments of 2019, and look ahead to 2020 where we’ll be going into our second decade serving the Beacon Hill community. BBA members will also have the opportunity to vote for board members (you don’t have to be present to vote).
We hope you’ll join us for an evening celebrating small business, new and old friends, amazing food, and this incredible community we call home!
Get your tickets now! (They will sell out!)
