About that silent auction. Some of this year’s incredible food and drink items include a bottle of 23 year-old Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve bourbon from Cuban Liquor, pie for a year from Strawn’s Eat Shop, Humphrey Yogarts for a year from Counter Culture on Youree, and gift certificates galore from restaurants ranging from Walk-On’s Bistreaux and Bar to Jimmy’s Seafood and Steak. There’s also a meet-and-greet VIP experience to some play called Hamilton. Anyone ever heard of that?
Of course, the best part of an event like TASTE is that, by attending, you’re supporting an outstanding organization that’s changing lives for the better. If you’re unfamiliar with the work being done by Holy Angels, grab a tissue and watch this video:
