Whatcha got going on next weekend?
Could it be that you are coming to Taste! at the TCF stadium? You should, it's going to be crazy fun. Friday night is all about the noshing, it's pretty much one big cocktail party with more than 300 wines and eats from great local restaurants such as Barbette and Seven.
Saturday, on the other hand, will be even more foodtastically fun! Not only can you taste the wines and sample nosh from places such as Dakota and D'Amico Kitchen, you'll have a chance to sit in on some serious cooking demos by Cosmos' John Occhiato, our own Marrianne Miller of Saga Hill, and JP Samuelson of Sopranos.
Also on Saturday, new this year, are the first ever Street Eat Awards in which we honor our local food truck scene! More than 10 trucks/carts will be parked on the plaza, handing out samples of their street food, which you-the-eater can taste and vote on for the People's Choice award. Are you a Chef Shack devotee? Do you have an unbending loyalty to Natedogs? This is your chance to prove it! Around 2 p.m., an esteemed judging panel, including Mayor McFoodie R.T. Ryback himself along with some notable eaters, will take the stage and select the uber truck/cart of the universe for the Best Mobile Food Vendor award.
So come out this weekend and spend a few hours with the food kids, you know we're more fun than raking your lawn. And those leaves are still going to be there on Sunday.
