Food samples are normally only found in grocery stores, ice-cream parlors, and hip-hop mash-ups made by DJ chefs. Today's Groupon takes the world of tidbits to the streets: for $10, you get one admission to Taste of Dearborn on Wednesday, June 15 from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. at the Bryant Library in Dearborn (a $20 value).
The Dearborn Chamber of Commerce helms the annual Taste of Dearborn festival, amalgamating local eateries to dazzle townsfolk and visitors alike with culinary concoctions and lively libations. Each purchased ticket includes a map of the grounds and one wrist band that allows for unlimited access to a multitude of local grub hubs, including Crave, Bangkok 96, and Tria. Throughout the event restaurants will sling out complimentary samples as local bands treat hungry hoards to rich rhythms and scholarly lectures on Einstein's theory of close-mouthed mastication. Each eatery also serves drink specials at the cash bar for an additional cost. As an added bonus, Taste of Dearborn provides free gas-powered transportation to and from participating snack stations, saving guests the hassle of learning how to quantum leap.
