Coronado Junior Woman’s Club to Host “A Taste of Coronado” Fundraiser on October 10

Beneficiaries: Camp Able at Coronado and Coronado Junior Woman’s Club

The Coronado Junior Woman’s Club is hosting the 10th annual “A Taste of Coronado” fundraiser on Thursday, October 10, 2019 from 5:00pm – 9:00pm, where over 30 participating restaurants and businesses around town each offer a unique and delicious mini-dish for their guests. Many of last year’s favorites will return this year, in addition to several new participants.

Tastes from 2018 featured items such as crab, avocado and mango stacks, monte cristo sandwiches with a side of fried pickles, sliders, wonton ahi poke, tandoori quail, haggis with mash, oyster with vermouth, Tokyo dirty rice and penne alla salmon. Beverages along the route included wine, champagne tastes and housemade roasted red beet infused tequila for the 21+ crowd as well as cold brew coffee. Others offered desserts like bon bons, cannoli, taro and guava doughnuts with yuzu coconut glaze and pumpkin trifle. Local chefs are sure to impress 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!
