Bon Appétit’s Foodiest Town in America is preparing to showcase downtown restaurants that have helped propel Boulder to epicurean heights. Downtown Boulder’s Taste of Pearl is happening on Sunday, April 13 from 2 to 6 p.m., and it’s going to be one seriously tasty afternoon.

Visualize yourself there. You’ll take a leisurely stroll down Pearl Street, dropping by 15 galleries and retail stores. While there, you’ll enjoy delicious food and wines from 15 local restaurants and 15 Colorado wineries. This year’s participants include Centro Latin Kitchen, Frasca Food & Wine, Leaf Vegetarian Restaurant, Pizzeria Locale, SALT Bistro, Garfield Estates Winery, Grande River Vineyards, Redstone Meadery, Rocky Mountain Wild Cider and Settembre Cellars. Tasty.

Tickets are on sale now at tasteofpearl.com. Your admission includes entry to all event locations for samples of food and wine, a keepsake bag and wine glass, and a compostable wine plate. Your ticket is also redeemable for $5 off a bottle of wine from one of the participating wineries and special offers from hosting retail locations.

This event always sells out, so reserve your spot today. Your taste buds will thank you, as will your community. Your participation will help keep downtown Boulder vibrant. Plus a portion of the Taste of Pearl’s proceeds will benefit the Emergency Family Assistance Association, a local safety net for families, people with disabilities and seniors who have nowhere else to turn when they can’t meet their basic needs.
