update: Taste of Downtown was rescheduled due to the crazy San Diego blackout – hope you can all make it!
This Thursday, September 29, 2011 is the 12th Annual Taste of Downtown – are you going? I’ve never been to a Taste of Somewhere event, so I’m looking forward to walking the streets of the Gaslamp (and environs), courtesy of McFarlane Promotions.
With over 50 restaurants handing out tasty bites, I’m wondering if I’ll need to take advantage of the shuttle running between the three downtown areas… maybe it’s best if I just power-walk everywhere to burn more calories.
Have you been to Taste of Downtown before? Any favorite spots to hit? Any advice for this newbie?
Press release and list of participating restaurants below:
