The First Taste Culinary Crawl – Thursday, Sept. 20 – was the big kickoff event for Chippewa Valley Restaurant Week 2018. Attendees could taste a full meal's worth of both savory and sweet samples from select local restaurants, as well as beer samples from a host of local brewers. DJ Billy Siegel of Revival Records provided tunes. A portion of every ticket was donated to the Community Table.
The stormy weather made it interesting this year, causing some last minute rearrangements. A tent was added to the patio to shelter our fantastic breweries, and all the food was moved indoors. The evening was a bit cozier than planned, but people had an absolute blast with great food, music, and friends.
