Taste of Wheaton This Sunday

I will now try to restore the GEIW karmic balance lost in the previous post’s negativity by pointing out that the annual Taste of Wheaton is this Sunday, May 16, from 11am to 5pm in the downtown triangle. I haven’t been able to find a list of which restaurants are participating this year, but it’s Wheaton, so you know there will be some good eatin’.  Tastes range from $1 to$5, and there’s plenty of free entertainment scheduled, from live music to peoplewatching. And as of now, the weather forecast says 77 degrees and mix of sun and clouds, which sounds pretty good to me.

  1. Hmm, it’s looking like the weather folks might be revising their forecast for Sunday. Seems like there’s a front that might come through and lower temps and bring some rain that afternoon, but it’s way too early to tell for sure.
    I ntoiced one of the featured events at the ToW is “Hispanic Wine Tasting” featuring wines from Argentina, Chile, Spain and Uruguay. Kind of an odd mix of old world and new world wines – (Reds) Malbec, Carmenere, Tanat, Tempranillo; (Whites) Torrontes, Chardonnay, Viognier, & Albarino. The wines are paired with cheeses etc but it’s $15 per flight (Red or White). Depending on how heavy or light the pours are this may or may not be a good deal.

  2. Thanks, Eeyore, for that weather report of doom. Taste of Wheaton has often been plagued by bad weather, but if we don’t talk about it, maybe it won’t happen this year. First rule of Taste of Wheaton weather: don’t talk about Taste of Wheaton weather (starting….now).

    The wine tasting option is interesting, and I wonder how many people will partake. Wheaton, in 2010 at least, is really all about cheap international food, not (relatively) upscale wine tasting. But, it’s nice to have options! And maybe I’ll be proven wrong and they’ll be out of wine by early afternoon.
