More than two dozen restaurants and Colorado wineries are taking part in todays Taste of Pearl in Boulder, a four-hour walkabout along the Pearl Street Mall that combines the three greatest pastimes on the planet: grazing, imbibing and shopping. A slew of downtown Boulder businesses, including Art & Soul, Common Era, Boulder Bookstore and Starrs Clothing, will become makeshift dining rooms for sampling foodstuffs from top restaurants like Frasca Food & Wine, Black Cat, Jax and Mateo and sipping wines from Bookcliff Vineyards, Boulder Creek Winery, Redstone Meadery and Infinite Monkey Theorem.
As Boulder becomes known as a world-class food destination and a leader in the farm-to-table movement, now is the perfect time to host an event to let people see what we have to offer, says Sean Maher, executive director of Downtown Boulder. Taste of Pearl not only puts restaurants in the spotlight, but it also allows us to highlight some of downtown Boulders distinctive retailers and galleries. Plus, its a perfect venue for attendees to explore and support the shop/buy local movement by showcasing our states wonderful wineries.
The event runs from 2 to 6 p.m., and tickets are $52.80, a portion of which will benefit the Emergency Family Assistance Association, a local nonprofit that assists Boulder County families with food and shelter. To purchase yours, go to www.boulderdowntown.com/taste-of-pearl-tickets.
