A Taste of Athens has given us all the info you need about this amazing event:

It is a simple idea really. Eat…Drink…and Help Many... In its 18th year, A Taste of Athens 2011 will bring together over 50 local restaurants, along with beverage providers, for an evening of the kind of gluttony where no one should feel the need to repent. Aside from the opportunity to sample delicious dishes from all of your favorite local eateries, old and new, your attendance alone to this unique event benefits Community Connection of Northeast Georgia.


As guests wander from table to table in the Grand Hall of The Classic Center listening to the live sounds of the Athens A-Train Band, they will be able to sample food from some of this year’s participating restaurants including A Tavola, East West Bistro, Five & Ten, Graze Burgers & Salads, Gymnopedie, Harry’s Pig Shop, Hilltop Grill, Mama’s Boy, Five & Ten, Porterhouse Grill, Speakeasy, Thai Spoon, Square One Fish Co., and The Grit just to name a few. All restaurants are local, with a few chains, such as Barberitos, Locos, Your Pie, and Zaxby’s, invited since these chains are based in Athens.


Guests can mingle and raise a glass filled by Barefoot Wine & Bubbly, Georgia Crown Distributing, Leon Farmer & Company, Red Brick Brewery, or Terrapin Beer among others. Afterward, grab some dessert from Silver Lining Cupcake Company and then head on over to browse the Silent Auction or purchase your Stay-Cation Raffle tickets with a pick me up in hand from Jittery Joes.

A Taste of Athens will take place on Sunday, February 20th at The Classic Center from 5 p.m. - 8 p.m. Tickets are $45 for General Admission or $75 for VIP Admission. Group discounts are available. VIP guests are provided with earlier entry to the event starting at 4:30 p.m., a souvenir plate and glass, and exclusive access to the VIP Sponsor Garden during the event.
