If you’re starting to feel over-saturated by summer wine and beer tastings, Highland Park’s soda pop shrine Galco’s has sweet refreshment planned for you next month. “Summer Soda Tasting,” a benefit for The Southwest Museum, will find Galco’s Godfather John Nese introducing new, vintage, and rare sodas, with samples, live music, and words of wisdom from the walking soda encyclopedia himself, locally dubbed the “king of pop.” $12 tickets for the July 24th event are available online.
