10 Reasons to Go to Taste of Atlanta 2015

Taste of Atlanta 2015

It's fall in Atlanta, so that means it's time for the biggest food lover's event of the year - Taste of Atlanta! It's this weekend (September 25-27) in Midtown at Tech Square, and I've rounded up some of the best reasons you need to buy your tickets stat!

  1. With 90+ restaurants participating you're bound to find restaurants you know and love and ones you've never had the chance to check out. Hello, Bar Taco, El Felix and Common Quarter, three spots I've yet to hit I.R.L.
  2. Never fear, it's not just savory items. Morelli's, Sprinkles Cupcakes, Sugar Shack and Suno Desserts will ensure your sweet tooth is sated as well!
  3. It's not just stuffing your face. You can learn from some of the best in the biz at "Experiences" like getting the down low on the best tables in town from the likes of King & Duke's EJ Hodgkinson, Local Three's Chris Hall and 1Kept's Thaddeus Keefe.
  4. Did I mention booze? There's a bar craft competition and VIP tickets get you access to Hop City's curated selection of more than 100 of the best craft beers and an amazing selection of wine from around the world. Alas, VIP tix are already sold out, so hopefully you already snagged yours!
  5. Forget tickets, this year they're going high tech. You'll get a wristband that you'll fill up with taste points. Kind of cool, right?
  6. The best of the best restaurants will be participating in my fave part of the weekend - the bucket list bash! Friday night there will be live music, bites from spots like 4th & Swift, JCT and Rathbun's at this culinary bucket list themed event. 
  7. Kids may not be invited to Friday night's festivities but there is plenty for them to enjoy Saturday and Sunday. Kids will do the cooking and the judging at a burger battle on Sunday (1:30) and a lucky family will get the chance to sample the Carnival Chef's creations at a family tasting table (4:30 on Saturday).
  8. You can feel good about your gluttony as proceeds are supporting various charities like The Giving Kitchen and Share Our Strength.
  9. You'll have more chances to part with your money at a silent auction benefiting Share our Strength. Expect big ticket items and once in a lifetime experiences!
  10. Current forecast is 74 degrees for a high. Ah...fall in Atlanta!
