Taste of Smyrna: Festival of Delectable, September 18
I love food. I love food a lot. Any chance I get to sample something different or new, I’m on it. That’s why any type of food festival is like a perfect storm of opportunity for me. I can go to one location and just walk around and sample a variety of different dishes from different restaurants.
I remember this one food festival I went to a few years back. I think I literally tried every possible dish that was available, and there were A LOT of restaurants that were representing. Eventually the vendors just started giving me and my friends food for free. LOL. We stayed to the end and were even allowed to take home some of the leftovers of the dishes that we really liked. The refrigerator in our apartment (and this is a BIG refrigerator) was full for weeks. Ahhh…I wish I could pull that off again.
My reason for thinking about food festivals in the first place today is because I just got word that the Taste of Smyrna will hit downtown Smyrna (200 Village Green Circle, Smyrna, GA 30080) next month on September 18 from 11:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. I can’t wait! I guess they’re calling it the Festival of Delectable…sounds great, but I just hope that there will be a lot of “delectables” for me to choose from. There is no charge to attend, but you do need to purchase the samples – anywhere from 50 cents to $4.
Participating restaurants (at least 30) include: Atkins Park, Dave & Buster’s, Taco Mac, Marlow’s Tavern, Chick-fil-a, Jets Pizza, L’Thai West, Crepe Revolution, Williamson Bros. BBQ and Bruster’s Ice Cream. There will even be a live music and a Kids Zone with rides and inflatables so junior can keep busy while you stuff your face. LOL. Hope to see you there!
