Happy Taste of Dine Originals!

To hell with silly and chilly New Year’s Eve, I think most chowhounds around town observe the significant passage of time with the annual arrival of another wonderful springtime Taste of Dine Originals party. Since this must-attend, May-staple event is happening again Thursday, that means local farmers markets are now up and running and patios are buzzing as we all warmly welcome—with open arms and “opener” mouths—the most delicious and fun time of the year kicked off by the most delicious and fun soiree of the year.

Here are some of the official details (ticket info is at the end of this post): The 2012 chapter of ToDO (featuring fabulous food from our fifty best restaurants!) is taking place this Thursday, May 10, from 6-9:30pm at its new location, Capital University’s Capital Center. Once again the very worthy beneficiary of the proceeds is The Buckeye Ranch.  

Here’s a peek at some of last year’s delectable treats

See you there (FYI: the weather’s gonna comply with clear skies and temps in the mid 60s).
