How Does The Event Work?

So… how does this whole “Taste” thing work???

The Taste of Manchester is a pub crawl style event.  Each participating business will have a “Tasting” section set up at their location offering a sampling of some menu items, where you will get your ticket stamped and taste something delicious.  You can start anywhere along the route, visiting as many participating locations as you can, but make sure you wrap up your night with our after-party at the Army & Navy Club!

Be sure to check out restaurants at Frame Dimensions, MCC on Main, and Sean’s Fine Jewelry as well as our main Taste of Manchester hub Army & Navy Club.  All of these venues will be hosting some great grub from Manchester locals!

Besides the restaurants, the Army & Navy Club will serve as:

  • Event/MDOG information booth
  • Central Bus Station for pick up, drop off, transfer
  • Closing event – Taste of Manchester After Party
  • acknowledgements, and drawing of door prizes!

 Here is the 2017 Taste of Manchester Map.

Each number on the map identifies the bus stop for eateries in that location.  Buses will stop at each stop every 15-20 minutes.

There will be a lot going on that evening! So to help you plan your evening, here is a sample schedule:

  • 5:30 – 9:00  Visit participating restaurants on Main Street and Hartford Road/Charter Oak Street, as well as the Army & Navy Club, either by walking or catching the bus.  Get your ticket stamped at each site you visit.
  • 9:00  Hop on the bus at the last restaurant you’re at and head back to the Army & Navy Club.
  • 8:50 – 9:10  Drop off your ticket and wait to see if you won any of our drawings.  Remember, you must be present to win all drawings.
  • 9:30  Head to back to your favorite participating restaurant to continue your own personal party. Maybe even sample their Signature Cocktail.

TIPS

  • Come hungry! This event is a great venue for local restaurants to offer samples, there is always a ton of food and the seasoned tasters know to pace themselves!
  • Wear comfortable shoes … and stretchy pants 😉
  • Be sure to fill in your name on the back of your ticket.  You must be present to win the door prizes.
