Taste of Davis 2011
When people ask me where I grew up, I usually respond by saying “Davis, California” followed at lightning-speed by a supporting qualifier: “It’s just outside of Sacramento.” But more and more, I’m noticing there’s no need to put my hometown on the map in such a way. Lately, my response has been met with comments such as “Oh, I have a friend that went to UC Davis” or “Yes, I’ve heard of the great Farmers Market they have there.”
Whether you know Davis like the back of your hand or have never made the jaunt down I-80 West (no, a stop at In-N-Out on Olive Drive en route to/from Tahoe does NOT count), there’s an event around the corner that you don’t want to miss.
Taste of Davis is back this Friday, March 18 from 6:30 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. at the Veterans Memorial Center. This is the second annual Taste of Davis hosted by the Davis Chamber of Commerce, and I was fortunate enough to attend last year, so I’m speaking from experience when I say it’s worth your while. The evening will showcase bites and sips from more than 30 restaurants, caterers, wineries, breweries, and other local businesses.
Tickets are $50 in advance or $65 at the door. Alternatively, you can purchase tickets by phone at 530-756-5160 or online HERE. Hurry – the event sold out last year!
