Hundreds of foodies will sip and savor their way through Shelter Island at the annual Taste of Point Loma on Wednesday. Restaurants, cafes and bakeries will offer local and out-of-town guests samples of fresh seafood, decadent desserts and a variety of ethnic cuisine, as well as the option to purchase a complementary drink at an additional fee. Four-legged friends are welcome to the tasting. Dog-friendly patios are marked with a paw print next to a restaurant’s logo on the map. Free shuttle service will be available starting at 5:30 p.m. at the Portuguese Hall every 30 minutes to pick up a new group of visitors. Proceeds will benefit the Peninsula Chamber and Point Loma Association in support business outreach, promotion and the community.
