EatBeat: Delray’s Tastemakers This Weekend

August 13th, 2009 · 1 Comment

Here’s a good deal and fun way to try a new restaurant.

Around Delray Beach’s Atlantic Avenue, 18 restaurants are participating in the Tastemakers Passport event Friday and Saturday nights.

passportHere’s the deal: Pick up a “Tastemakers Passport”, sponsored by Unique Travel of Palm Beach Inc.,  at any of the participating restaurants. It’s $20 – cash only — and then take it along while you stroll. All of the eateries on the list will be offering tastings and wine or beverage pairings both Friday and Saturday nights. We presume you’ll get your passport stamped at each tasting stop.

Then, your passport turns into a VIP discount card — you’ll get special offers at all the restaurants on the list through Sept. 30.
