    Aww I wish I could, that's my birthday. But I'm still stuck at school. Sigh.

    But I don't want to go among MAD people!

    Not in the cards for us this year, I'm afraid. We had a blast last year. Sounds like they have toned down the entertainment a notch (a good thing) and the food and wine selection is awesome.

    Have a "taste" of something for us.

    BTW, if you don't drink wine (or you have had your fill of wine) there was a small bar over in the corner serving non-alcoholic beverages. I didn't find it until the event was almost over.

    I have an engagement that I have to attend so I will not be there.

    Sadly, I have no taste this time.

    I'll be there. Reservations confirmed.

    I should be easy to spot - I'll be dragging the Dave Avanzino artwork I probably purchased (he's appearing from 1-4). More than likely, I'll also be wearing my Red Sox hat - that always gets a rise out of people.

    Dustin and i are looking into this...will prolly make reservations in the next couple of days if we decide for sure to go, everything looks so yummy!!

    question for those who've gone in the past: do they have a nice microbrew selection..or is it mostly just wine? if so...i'm gonna have to find that non-alcoholic bar, i just can't stand wine
    Will there be screams when the sun sets,

    We're going to two events this Sunday - sorry, we'll miss you by a week.
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    well, just confirmed our reservations so Dustin and I will be there for Taste! yippie!

    Is there any particular "dress code" one should follow for this event? And what's the format, do they bring you samples to your table or is it a go and get what you like yourself kind of thing?

    This is a brand new event for us, and we're super excited about going

    That's great news! Make sure to say hello if you see us.
    Clothing-wise, I'll probably wear my standard "casual uniform"... Dockers and a nice aloha shirt. Not sure what my wife will wear. She usually uses these types of events as an opportunity to buy something new.

    It's mostly wine. I think they had one beer last year. It's just big and open with food stations, so you walk around and pick and choose what you want. Get there early to snag a table. We had a stand-up table last year and had to squeeze around it. It worked though, because as soon as you came back with food, someone else was leaving to go get more, so there was always room. Sitting would have been nice though.

    And dress is up to you. A lot of people have been in the park all day, and some are coming just for the event, so you'll see a full range of clothes.

    Have a blast! I wish I could go this year!
    A signature should go here.
