If you’ve ever been to North Park, you know that it’s home to culinary innovation and cutting-edge brew masters. If you’ve ever been to The Taste of North Park, you know you can experience this all-in-one delicious afternoon!
Grab a fork and make your way to University Ave.! The Taste of North Park is back on October 14, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. for some of the best brew and food tastings in the city... that’s FIVE hours of deliciousness! Come hungry (like stomach growling hungry) because this year the Taste will have over 50 participating restaurants and 15 craft brewers. Nomad Donuts, Holy Matcha, City Tacos, and Crazee Burger are just a few of the over 50 restaurants participating in the taste. Breweries will be pouring four-ounce samples of their best releases. Not to mention, an unique selection of distinctively created non-alcoholic beverages will also be offered this year.
What’s the best part of the Taste in my opinion? Besides the burgers, fried chicken, IPAs, tacos, sushi, pizza, ice cream, sandwiches (did I mention IPAs?)… the best part of the Taste of North Park is that it’s a full on walking tour of the neighborhood. All of this taste sensation is enhanced by your self-curated exploration of the vibrant streets of North Park. Live music and street art? Yep, there will be plenty of eye-catching art to check out and music to groove to.
