Sounds like it could be good. It has good sponsors involved. The Civic Plaza is a GREAT place for an event like this. Promising food, wine, beer, music. They aren't giving many details from what I can see, and it would be first year. Just not hearing much about it, though. (I would wonder, however, how busy restaurants could stretch their kitchens and staff with busiest season upon them; but, like I said, these type of events, with these types of sponsors, at the Civic Plaza, are usually good.) And agree the weather looks good ahead, although some years it wouldn't be. Advise to keep ears open.
Their website is really bad.
I know part of the event is to crown the winner of the Rock This Restaurant makeover and that the 20 top finalists are participating in the Taste of NM.
The RTR website is equally as bad...not a lot of updated information, etc.
Good friends of ours own one of the places being considered for a makeover so of course we're pulling for them, but the event sounds like it'll be fun.
I ASSUME that each the tickets gets one a sample from each place, but that's certainly not clear from the site.
I think thats what it means too. Another fun thing to do is the Rio Grande Arts and Crafts festival.
If you click through the "buy tickets" button, it'll tell you prices: $10=12 tasting coupons, $20=25 tasting coupons. It seems that it's free to go to the event and listen to the music & entertainment, you just pay for tastings.
Hey, good luck to your friends, Karma! I'll keep my fingers crossed for them.
