Yum! 23rd Annual Taste of Jamaica Plain on Nov. 15

Blue Nile, Chilacates, Café Beirut, FoMu, The Frogmore and Tres Gatos are just some of the participating businesses in the 23rd Annual Taste of Jamaica Plain on Nov. 15. This year's Taste of Jamaica Plain has a new location at Our Lady of Annunciation Church on the West Roxbury and Jamaica Plain border. In recent years the Taste of JP has been held at the Franklin Park Zoo. While the event is moving inside this year, it will still benefit a good neighborhood organization, Ecumenical Social Action Committee (ESAC), its senior home programs and youth opportunity collaborative.

Vegan Ice Cream Shop Seeks Take-out License

Here's a quick update on FoMu, the vegan ice cream shop at 617 Centre St. The owners have been petitioning the city for a take-out license. Tuesday morning at the Zoning Board of Appeals meeting at City Hall, the owners withdrew that application because the wrong address was listed in the original filing. They'll re-file for what co-owner Hin Tang said should be a formality. Tang also said take-out is a very small part of their business, so the delay doesn't hurt too much financially.
