Keith Paul with A Good Egg Dining Group and Matt Worsham with Earl’s Rib Palace are this year’s Event Chairs and are excited about the overwhelming restaurant and wine broker response to this event. “I am thrilled to be a part of this great event on Western Avenue. We truly have the best local restaurants in the City, and this event does a remarkable job promoting that. Every year – the bar is set higher and higher as far as the caliber of food and wine that is served,” claims Paul. Worsham states, “The Taste of Western not only showcases the fantastic restaurants on Western Avenue, but we also do a great job of highlighting the retail merchants in our auction component of the event. We are delighted to bring back by popular demand the wine pull…everyone had a blast with that last year.” Paul also exclaims, “We’re also changing things up a little this year by offering a one-of-a-kind Chef’s Dinner featuring Western Avenue chefs preparing a meal for our sponsors. Also sponsors will have the now-luxury of having their own private tables in the NEW Tasting Room located next to the Theater!” For those who don’t know much about the Taste of Western, this event typically boasts 600-700 people in attendance each year…and a special table reserved just for you is definitely worth the money!
