"Taste of Pearl" Sneak Peek!

Posted on March 6, 2015

One of our favorite events of the year is almost here! Taste of Pearl is only a few short weeks away and tickets are now on sale. In case you're unfamiliar with the event, Taste of Pearl presents the perfect opportunity to sample your way around downtown without committing to any one restaurant's full menu, and shows you the best-of-the-best of Boulder's eats, drinks, and shops! This way, you can note which restaurants tickle your fancy and make a date to go back for a full meal later. All those places you've been dying to try (like Salt and Frasca) are going to be there, with bells on. And as an added bonus, Colorado wineries will be on hand as perfect pairings to the delicious food. After being named America's Foodiest City, Taste of Pearl is a must-do event here in downtown Boulder! Here are some pictures from Taste of Pearl pasts to get your mouth watering.

As a personal favorite of mine, I definitely won't miss samples from Chef John Platt (Riffs Urban Fare). Attendees will find out at check in where he will be and what winery he will be paired with this year! 

In 2013, you could have checked out Athleta's cute workout apparel while dining on yummy appetizers from The Kitchen [Next Door]! This pairing was a MUST!

The best part about this event is getting to taste bits and pieces of each menu. Samples at Momentum in 2012 were the perfect size

In this shot of Taste of Pearl 2013, Bobby Stuckey arranges small bites in front of vibrant art at Art + Soul. Don't miss who Frasca will be paired with this year! 



In 2012, Snowy Peaks Winery passed out glasses of their  wine at Common Era! Look out for which places these wonderful stops are paired with this year! 

In 2013, event attendees just couldn't stay away from the vast selection of wines from Aspen Peak Cellars displayed at Patagonia!



In 2012, customers at Starr's Clothing Co. enjoyed the combination of fashion, delicious eats from Mateo, and unique wine flavors from Ciatano Winery.

Riffs Urban Fare was one of the 15 delicious restaurant pairings offered during this event last year! You won't want to miss their Salmon dish with spring vegetables, that was paired with both red and white whines from Garfield Estates Winery.


Shopping, dining AND simultaneously tasting fine wine sounds like the dream, am I right?! Taste of Pearl is truly an unforgettable event and I hope this photo blog has given you a "taste" of what's to come this year. Stay tuned for more exciting event details as Taste of Pearl approaches!

T-minus 44 days!
