A Taste of Davis


I’ve often heard people say that one of the many great things about Sacramento is its proximity to so many amazing places. Tahoe, Napa, Sonoma, San Francisco . . . the list is long and diverse. Maybe I’m biased, being from “The Bicycle Capital of the U.S.” and all, but I would argue that Davis holds a strong position on that list – and it’s definitely in the top ten. Whether your prior experience with Davis involves nothing more than a pit-stop for In-N-Out drive-through, or you are a regular at the Saturday Farmer’s market, this Friday holds an opportunity for anyone to explore the bountiful tastes that Davis has to offer. The Davis Chamber of Commerce is hosting the first-ever “A Taste of Davis” on March 12 from 6:00 – 9:30 p.m. at the Veterans Memorial Center Community Park.

Tickets are $40 in advance or $50 at the door and include sampling from a variety of Davis’ best restaurants, caterers and wineries. According to the Davis, CA Chamber of Commerce Facebook Fan Page, Ciocolat and Caffe Italia are two of the many purveyors that will be present. Please see below for a full list of vendors.

    I’ll be there! I’ve been a Davis resident for quite some time now, but am looking forward to finding some new favorites.

    I went to school at UCD and participated in the taste of Davis after graduating. It is great, and I highly recommend it 🙂
