Event chairperson Chuck Ross of Old Town Family Hospitality Corp., the Cosmopolitan Hotel and Fiesta de Reyes said the inaugural event surpassed all expectations last fall and 13 restaurants in Old Town have begun the planning for the second-annual Taste of Old Town.
“Nearly 1,000 San Diegans blazed through the streets of Old Town last year for the sell-out event, sampling selections of spirits and beer paired with culinary specialties,” Ross said. “Participating restaurants and tequila sponsors said it was wildly successful. We received nothing but rave reviews from the public as well.”
Produced by the Old Town Chamber of Commerce and sponsored by Tequila Herradura, Taste of Old Town tickets are now on sale for $35 per person at tasteofoldtown.com. Designated drivers can purchase food-only tickets for $25. Ross said prices will go up $5 if people wait until the day of the event and they may risk missing out altogether.
“We sold out last year so we recommend people purchase their tickets ahead of time,” Ross explained.
Ross added that Old Town Trolley Tours will be providing free shuttle service throughout the event, so that attendees can be sure to visit each of the participating restaurants. Restaurants, tequila brands and other Old Town businesses are also providing a variety of raffle prizes.
Participating restaurants in 2015 are The Alamo, Barra Barra Saloon, Cafe Coyote, Casa de Reyes, Casa Guadalajara, Cosmopolitan Hotel & Restaurant, El Patio de Old Town, Fred’s Mexican Café, Miguel's Cocina, Old Town Mexican Café, Old Town Tequila Factory, Rockin Baja, Rust General Store & Bistro.
