Fancy an Aloe Vera cucumber martini? How about some Hawaiian Poke? Perhaps some pizza and pasta? Or cheers to chicken Bahn Mi?
Well, you can have it all–and lots more– at the Taste of Coronado. The island’s beloved food and drink event is coming to town this Thursday, October 10th, from 5pm-8pm.
Featuring five new stops–Little Frenchie, the Henry, Clayton’s Bakery & Bistro, Poke 123 and Mindful Cafe (from Sharp hospital–setting up at the Ferry Landing)–you can sample the best bites and nibbles in the Village. This year almost thirty local business are opening their doors to the hungry, festive and thirsty among us.
So text your babysitters, and loosen your belt buckles…..You can eat and drink all you want, but there’s one thing you don’t have: time.
“We are selling 800 tickets, and every year we sell out,” said Jessica Settle Cunningham, chair of the event. So buy your tickets now at ATasteofCoronado.com. (or you might be messaging Uber Eats.)
In case you were wondering…its no accident the event is on 10/10. It’s the Taste of Coronado’s ten year anniversary! Put on by the Coronado Junior Women’s Club, every year a portion of the proceeds go to a different local charity. This year, it’s Camp Able, which is a non-profit organization that focuses on empowering the disabled community through fun and safe aquatic camps. (Visit CampableatCoronado.org for more info.)
Ready to partake, but don’t feel like walking or driving around town? No problem. The trusty trolley (three of them, to be exact) will be running on a continuous loop with seven stops around the island from 5pm-9pm.
And there’s more to “Taste” than just food and drink!
“The Coronado Fitness Club will be running a hydration station,” says Jessica, “and Coronado Bliss is doing a scalp, neck/shoulder or hand massage with Aveda oils.” Oooh, la la.
Be sure to document your night with food shots, selfies, and group photos at the Coronado Junior Women Club’s step and repeat and tag #tasteturnsten.
I’ve attended every “taste” for the last six years, so it’s a major bummer I’m missing this one. (But don’t feel too bad…I’ll be with my husband at the Annapolis Boat Show so life could be worse.) But I’m sure I’ll get some FOMO. So take lots of pics for me! It’s sure to be worthy of its ten year celebration.
“Eating, drinking, giving back and making memories, it never gets old!” says Jessica.
I couldn’t agree more! Check out Tastes from years past on my blog here.
