Wow. You worked hard on this one with all those links. And how cool that it's just a 'taste' of a bunch of different things. Sounds worth the price if I just get to graze and graze and graze. . .

Scott, thanks for the post. This certainly gives one pause, at least for the thought of going south, I could use a little heat!

Scott, I bet this is a big draw for people...we have it here also but they normally have it outside under tents in Newport (which is a great venue- except summer it's just too crowded) & if the weather is good it works...having it inside gives everyone a chance to relax & take it slowly...you know digest slowly & spend the day!

There are some places (regions) that have such distinct foods, you really have to experience them.  And Austin, Texas really, is one of them!  Wish I could be there!

I love the "taste of the towns'. There is one in San Diego that is a lot of fun and a great way to be introduced to places you've always wanted to try!

Scott, this looks like so much fun!    We have our Taste of Colorado over Labor Day weekend, as right now would be difficult to navigate with the snow!     It is always fun to try new restaurants, and this is the perfect place!
