I know... Like me, you might not think of Sandy as a culinary cornerstone or dining destination. But I'm hoping to be proved wrong, --- this Tuesday, Aug. 18, at the 2009 Taste of Sandy.
Taste of Sandy (sounds sort of dirty, don't it?) will be held at the SouthTown Expo Center from 5-9 PM and will feature food from Sandy area restaurants, bakeries and caterers. Participating restaurants include Fratelli's, India House, Mount Fuji Japanese Restaurant, Market Street Grill, Mike's Pizza and Madeline's Steakhouse.
At Taste of Sandy there'll be live music, inflatable toys for the kids, and sports mascots the Jazz Bear, Bumble, Grizzbee and Leo the Lion will be in attendance. Sandy Mayor Tom Dolan will announce winners for Best Presentation, Best Dessert, Best Ethnic Cuisine, Tastiest Meal, Best Beverage and the Culinary Excellence Award.
