Presented by Happy State Bank and hosted by the Rotary Club of Abilene, Taste of Abilene will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, April 16, at the Abilene Convention Center.
This year’s all-you-can-eat extravaganza features the area’s finest restaurants and caterers. Nearly 50 restaurants and vendors will offer food and drink samples, including last year’s Top Taste winner 5-C Smokehouse, as well as some new tastes from Crooked Creek Meats, Golden Chopsticks and Market Street.
Tickets cost $35 in advance or $40 at the door. Advance tickets are available online at www.tasteofabilene.com, the Abilene Convention Center, James McCoy Drug Stores or through Rotary Club members.

TOA guests also can donate $1 to vote for their favorite samples for the evening, helping one restaurant win the Top Taste Award, an honor that comes with a giant spoon and bragging rights for a year.
