UNDER ONE ROOF
We have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation over the past weeks and the changing public safety recommendations. With a heavy heart, we have decided to cancel this year’s event in an effort to keep everyone in our community safe and healthy.
Proceeds from this event cover 75% of Daniel Webster Elementary’s PTA budget – supporting staff, supplies and programming for a large number of students in extreme need. Cancellation has a significant implication. We ask for anyone who is able to please consider a direct donation to support our students with much-needed funds to make up for this shortfall.
Given the extraordinary circumstances that caused the cancellation of Taste of Potrero, please consider converting your ticket to a tax deductible donation to the school. We will contact all current ticket buyers directly with details on donation and refunds.

This week, the bars and restaurants who have so generously supported Taste of Potrero for the past 9 years have had to make sacrifices, furlough employees and try to navigate a daily changing environment in the name of a larger civic duty. Like you, we are unsure what the future holds or how best to support small businesses affected by the public safety response to COVID-19.
For those who are able, please consider supporting our local culinary community in any way possible — by ordering takeout and delivery, purchasing gift cards for future use or joining a local wine or beer club.
Let’s come together as a community to see each other through this.
