The Coronado Junior Woman’s Club is hosting their 8th annual “A Taste of Coronado” fundraiser on Wednesday, October 11, 2017 from 5:00pm – 9:00pm. This is your chance to visit over 30 participating restaurants and businesses around town, each offering a unique and delicious ‘Taste’ for their guests. Many of your favorite stops will return from last year, in addition to a few new participants.
Tastes from 2016 featured items such as surf and turf tacos, coconut shrimp, fried chicken and waffles, sliders, chimichangas, and pennoni vodka. Some provided beverages along the route, including wine and champagne tastes for the 21+ crowd. Others offered desserts like bon bons, cannoli, and tiramisu. Our local chefs are sure to impress us yet again this October.
This four hour experience is the perfect way to spend a fall evening with friends and family. Make your way down Orange Avenue, or start at the Ferry Landing, to enjoy all that Coronado offers. When your feet get tired you can hop on the complimentary trolley to take you to the other side of town. You won’t go home hungry from this event!
