A Taste of Cambridge: Eat, Dine, Roam, Enjoy, Thursday in Central Square

The 13th annual A Taste of Cambridge has been bumped two days. Rain is threatened Tuesday July 14 so the Central Square foodie bash will take place Thursday July 16. For whatever, reason AToC has had a few rainouts/makeups in recent years – but that’s weather for you. Every July it’s like this: Might rain, might not.  The event – on Sidney Street, the Lansdowne Quad and University Park – features over 100 restaurants from Cambridge – the Blue Room, Café Kofofo, Cambridge Common, Four Burgers, Harvest, Henrietta’s Table, Sandrine’s Bistro, the Middle East, Otto’s Pizza, Savenors, many more – offer up their wares to hundreds of hungry and thirsty foodies souls.  We were there last year and intend to return. It’s the biggest, coolest buffet in town, and like all buffets, you wonder if I eat this will I have room for that? Or, what’s around the corner? Is it dessert time yet? We can provide no answers. We’re floaters , too. What we can tell you is that you can buy GA tickets for $50 ($60 at door) or VIP tix for $75.  The GA gets you four glasses or wine or beer. VIP tent gets you four bars, Drambuie and Bloody Marys a specialty, with sponsors including Grey Goose and Bombay Saphire. (Check web link below). In addition to providing a culinary and liquor-y (that’s a word, right?) treat the bucks go to CASPAR, Faith Kitchen, On the Rise, CHAF and Food for Free. It starts at 5:30 and runs til 8:30, with the VIP area – and yes, it’s worth it – going from 6:30 – 9:30.  You want music, too? But of course. There’s the line band The Dirty Water Brass Band that will be weaving its way through the lush landscapes and city streets and DJs are scattered about, too.
