|Hillside Fine Grill in Highland Village is off to an amazing start. We stopped in this week to record the Foodie Friday video and at 2:30 in the afternoon the place was booming! Check it out in this edition of Foodie Friday.
Chief Nokes, Sgt. Pittinger, Laurie Mullens, and I attended The Shops at Highland Village tenant meeting on Thursday morning. We shared holiday safety information, fire inspection details, and information on the HVBA and our holiday marketing campaign, “Wrap it up in HV.”
