I haven't been to Taste for a few years but went with friends and family last night. I was pleasantly surprised that I was able to get plenty of delicious food and beverage samples. This wasn't the case in the past when I've attended.

Overall, it was a great evening and I had a great time. Its still not worth $95 in my opinion but I suppose its for a good cause. I would go again next year based on my experience last night.

glad to hear it was a good experience. i have always heard good things about the food being delicious, but was always told it was just not worth it because it was so hard to get the food.
any favorites of what you had?

$95 per person?! Yikes! Where do the proceeds go?

Sounds fun though.

@STXBob. Fantastic cause. Is the amount made each event publicly announced? Made accountable some how?

Thanks.

I'm not certain if the proceeds are publicly announced, but its the main funding source for the St. Croix Foundation.

Thanks, Vicanuck. I'll look them up and see if I can find more information online.

Found the foundation's site: http://www.stxfoundation.org/

Fantastic force for the local community. I love that they focus on education, our future (children). 🙂
