Making food from scratch typically requires advance preparation, adherence to a recipe, and your third and final genie wish. Save the third wish for more wishes with today's Groupon: for $25, you get two general-admission tickets to the Tasting the Town food-tasting event on Thursday, September 22, from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Humble Civic Center (a $50 value).
The savory scents from more than 40 restaurant and vendors fill the halls of the Humble Civic Center during Tasting the Town, beckoning visitors to romp through mouthwatering morsels. The epicurean event dazzles with unlimited samples from chefs and caterers, including spice-soaked nibbles from local foodies Lady Savory, time-tested Italian fare from Vincenzo's, and a variety of other vendors, including Chimichurri's, Raffa's Waterfront Grill, and Café du Bois. National companies Smoothie King and Applebee's round out the smorgasbord, allowing patrons to experience a variety of flavors without becoming an intern for an Oompa Loompa. Festival-goers can wash down their pint-sized portions with two beverages each from local breweries or wineries (wine not included with this Groupon) and a selection of water and soda available for those under 21. Aficionados of grape elixirs can also pay $10 extra at the door for the Wine Lover admission, which grants entrance to the wine walk, a commemorative wine glass, and five samples.
