Taste of Pearl's Spring Awakening
Spring has sprung, and with that, so has our social calendar here at Downtown Boulder. One event we are looking forward to is the annual Taste of Pearl because let’s not forget that as the flowers start to bloom, so do our new taste buds.
"LOVE Pearl Street in the Spring not only because of the beautiful tulips, but also for the events that the warmer weather brings with it. Can’t wait to see the pairings for this year’s festivities. "
"Nothing says elegance quite like throwing back some oysters from Jax while you shop around one of your favorite stores! Food, wine & shopping? Don’t mind if I do. Exclusive to the Jax Brand are Emersum Oysters by the Rappahannock River Oyster Company of Virginia. These bad boys are served with a choice of Lime-Cliantro Mignonette or Strawberry Gelee."
"Last year’s VIP ticket featured a dessert reception, this year you can be sure to “have your cake and eat it too” with a take home “to-go” dessert from Kilwins when you purchase a VIP ticket. (The VIP ticket includes all the benefits of the General Admission ticket plus: early VIP check in from 1:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. and previously mentioned special to-go dessert.) "
"Let’s be honest, this is really the direction that shopping should take in the future. Enjoy a glass of wine as you browse around the participating shops hosting Taste of Pearl restaurants and wineries. This picture captures wine supplied by Kingman Estates Winery at Savory Spice in 2015 "
" Celeb spotting: last year Chef John Platt of Riff’s Urban Fare artfully prepared and paired appetizers and wines together on the beautiful wooden counters at Savory Spice. Riffs is participating again this year so if you missed your 15 seconds of fame meeting John last year, come check out who he is paired with this year! (food/wine/location pairings are kept secret until participants check in for the event.) "
"Is it just me or do close up pictures of food really awaken your taste buds? Last year’s tastings looked so delicious I wonder how the chefs will top themselves this year. I cant wait to find out! These little bites were Tuna Crudo tacos with blood orange & chipotle olive oil, roasted peppers and olives from SALT the Bistro."
Check out the participating Shops, Food, and Wine at this year’s event.
P.S: With this amazing event sneaking up on us, be sure to mark your calendars and purchase your tickets now, the event is sure to sell out!
Until next time,
