Taste of the Wasatch doesn't take place until Sunday, Aug. 6. However, it's never too early to get your tickets for this immensely popular charity event, since the yearly food and drink extravaganza is bound to be a sellout. By purchasing tickets before May 1, you'll be in the running to win a stay at Solitude Resort that weekend. Hosted by the resort and co-sponsored by Nicholas & Co., Taste of the Wasatch features dozens of chefs and restaurants, wine, beer and other beverages, live entertainment, silent and live auctions and much more. Proceeds benefit local nonprofits working to fight hunger and food insecurity issues in our communities. To purchase tickets—a portion of which is tax-deductible—visit tasteofthewasatch.org.

The menu features dishes such as confit melon soup, steamed sable fish and three-way rabbit paired with Freaky Deaky Dutch Kuyt Oat Ale, Avenues Annual Saison, Ostara Triple IPA, Gruit Belgian Dubbel and Chai Hulud Saison.
