Tastemakers of Delray Beach (not to be confused with Clean Plate Charlie's Top 30 Tastemakers list) is an annual event that provides attendees with the opportunity to sample signature dishes and cocktails from all of the downtown area's restaurants.
The two-day event takes place from 5 to 10 p.m. Thursday, August 8 and Friday, August 9. August is still pretty sweltering, but for locals, it's the last hurrah before the snowbirds begin migrating in with the good weather. Tastemakers also give the restaurants a much needed boost at the end of the slow summer season.
Tickets, or passports, are $30 each and go on sale July 1. Passports can be purchased at any of the 18 participating restaurants -- cash only -- and $1 from each passport goes to the Spady Cultural Heritage Museum.More »
