Dishcrawl Returns to Explore Downtown Evansville Restaurants August 13th
After a successful run during their inaugural "crawl" down Franklin Street earlier this month, the San Jose-based start-up, "Dishcrawl" will host a follow up to their unique event through the streets of Downtown Evansville.
If you missed the first Dishcrawl go-around and aren't quite sure what it is, Evansville Dishcrawl Ambassador, Michael Armanno, says the event looks to create "dining experiences and events to satisfy anyone’s craving...to show food lovers the best dishes in local restaurants", and to introduce people "to the faces behind their favorite restaurants." Additionally, he says the event on Tuesday, August 13th is “...a great way to bring people back downtown and boost the local economy. It gives the restaurants a chance to introduce themselves to the community.”
As was the case with the Franklin Street version, what restaurants will be featured is a mystery, which according to organizers is part of the fun. Participants aren't alerted to the locations until two days before the event, however they have been known to drop hints through their Twitter account.
Regardless of which restaurants are selected, Evansville residents like myself know there's no shortage of great food in the downtown area. From the classic bar food offered at Backstage Bar & Grill, and Main Gate Sports Bar, to the authentic Italian taste of Angelo's and Milano's, there's plenty of choices to fill your belly.
Reservations are $45 per person and can be purchased through the Evansville Dishcrawl website. However, you can save 15% on the price of those tickets by using the code, kissdowntown. Tickets are limited, so be sure to get yours now.
