Thursday marks the date for this year’s Taste, a food sampling event featuring dishes from 20 local restaurants and caterers in a fundraising event to benefit the Kidney Foundation of Greater Chattanooga.
The event, held from 5-8 p.m. at Stratton Hall, will also feature music from Ryan Oyer, cooking demonstrations, fashions from local boutiques, and a small silent auction.
Advance ticket prices for $35 are available through the TasteChatt.com website, and will be available for $40 at the door. Guests at Taste will enjoy unlimited sampling from 20 local restaurants plus one drink ticket to be used for beer, wine, or other non-alcoholic beverage. A cash bar with mixed drinks will also be available. Some of the featured restaurants include Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, 1885, Elemental, Hair of the Dog, Petunia’s Silver Jalapeno, Public House, Terra Mae and the new Beast + Barrel, just to name a few of the eateries that make this event such a highlight for people who enjoy good food.
Whereas the main focus of the event will be on food and local restaurants, additional elements of Chattanooga culture will elevate the experience of the night as a whole.
Local music by Ryan Oyer will set the tone, beginning with a relaxed ambiance and then building in energy as the evening progresses. Strolling models featuring fashions from Backstreet Betty’s and Go Fish will also add to the fun.
Enjoy great food of all types, socializing, music, fashion, and a silent auction in a full evening of entertainment at Taste that will also support the important local work of the Kidney Foundation.
