Taste Of Lake Forest

OK OC Foodies – Ready, Set, Go!
This Sunday, September 24th, more than 20-local Lake Forest restaurants will showcase their finest tastes and libations at the 6th Annual Taste of Lake Forest. One restaurant is boasting a Beer and Wine Garden. Joseph Moscatiello of Peppino’s Restaurant is quoted from his Facebook Page: “We will also be providing a beer and wine garden on my patio, and everyone is welcome.”  Who can resist a good brew?

An estimated 20+ restaurants are said to be participating from all walks of cuisine-couture. And with an entrance fee of only $10, that is an average of .50 cents a taste.  “Holy-guacamole Batman.” (Sorry, I just had to say that. My baby-boomer roots are showing.)  You will be able to vote for your favorites.  1st-3rd place will be awarded along with “Best New Entry”.

Live music will be filling the air as you sip your wine, or roll your pasta, or crunch your chips, or chug your beer, all providing a fun and somewhat relaxing atmosphere.  That is, if you can ignore the other 3,000 folks that will be there too.  There will be a raffle with exciting prizes including a $100 Visa gift card!  If you have a Shop & Dine Lake Forest Week Coupon Booklet, bring it with you, and you will receive a raffle ticket for every stamp in your booklet!  Maximum 2-raffle prizes per person.  After all, they’ve got to keep it fair.  The Raffle Police will be watching –

The taste of Lake Forest is sponsored by Lake Forest Economic Development.  Participants in Taste of Lake Forest must also have participated in the “Shop & Dine Lake Forest Week” Coupon Booklet.
2016 Winners include:
1st Place: Dickey’s BBQ Pit
2nd Place: Peppino’s Italian Family Restaurants
3rd Place: Centro Collective
“Best New Entry” Award: Inka Mama’s

 So walk           run        ride  
to The Foothill Ranch Town Center @ 25512 Towne Centre Drive in Lake Forest.   And enjoy what is sure to be a rootin’, tootin’ good time.
As always, we’d love for you to share some pics.
See Ya “Round The OC!
