The Taste of Huntington Beach is an annual way to remind everyone that there is more to this beach town than surfing. This event gives a glimpse at some of the best culinary spots in Huntington Beach while you also enjoying wine, beer and of course the Southern California sun and the calming ocean breeze.
This is one of the finer “Taste of” events you will find in any city. This really is the class of Huntington Beach and the restaurants really do an amazing job of showcasing the best they have to offer. You have the well known Slaters 50/50 serving an incredible Peanut Butter and Jellyl burger and then down the aisle you were able to try a world-class chowder from newly opened SlapFish.
The big winner on this day was Tom Girl Baking Company as they won not only "Best Dessert," but also "Best Taste." Quite an accomplishment with all of the sweet treats and incredible food that was on hand.
In addition to food, drink and music, there was a number of amazing baskets in the silent auction that were filled with goods and services from local businesses. There were also some great raffle prizes that were awarded at the end of the day. When everyone finally could not take another bite, the Tijuana Dogs put on a great performance, rocking all day long and making sure everyone was enjoying the music and dancing.
The event was another success for the Huntington Beach Children's Library, as The Friends of the Children's Library and the HB Restaurant Association have helped the Taste raise over $300,000 since 2002. Mark your calendar for April 28th, 2013 as this will surely be a can't miss event once again next year!
