EatBeat: Lexus Taste at Downtown Thursday, Nov. 10 – Get Advance Tickets Today

November 9th, 2011 · 1 Comment

Fireworks close out last year's Taste at Downtown

Thursday night, Downtown at the Gardens and Lexus of Palm Beach team up to host the 8th annual dine-around to benefit the Big Heart Brigade’s charity work in the community.

From my story in the Florida Weekly:

Organizers at the Lexus Taste of Downtown are expecting more than 3000 diners to swarm the courtyards and promenade spaces around Downtown at the Gardens November 10 – all looking for a sample of soup, a bite of barbecue or a sip of wine.

The charity event that began at The Commons in Palm Beach Gardens for the Big Heart Brigade eight years ago has grown into the biggest wine and food event in the north county area.

The dine-around, featuring samples, small plates and pours from area restaurants and wine donors, returns for a second year at the Downtown location, with new restaurants involved and several new sponsors.

“It’s gotten bigger each year,” said Bill Decker, an event organizer. “We’re expecting even more people this year, and more than 30 restaurants have signed up. The community really gets behind the Big Heart Brigade events.”
