Somerville has become known as a food-lovers haven with good reason. In addition to big-name restaurants like La Brasa, it’s also home to small neighborhood gems serving up delicious, authentic cuisine from around the world. Next Tuesday you can dine at many of them all in one night as they open their doors for the East Somerville Foodie Crawl. And I’ve got your chance to win two tickets to this fun and festive event!
Participating restaurants will prepare cuisine that hails from places as diverse as Ethiopia, El Salvador, Haiti and Brazil. As the crawl moves along Broadway, East Somerville’s main foodie corridor, you’ll get to sample fare from the aforementioned La Brasa as well as Mount Vernon, Vinny’s, Tapatio, Fasika, Blessing Caribbean, Gauchao, Casey’s, Los Paisanos, Maya Sol, Taqueria Montecristo, Ola Cafe, Taco Loco, East End Grille, Dreamy Flavor, Rincon and Joe’s Liquors.
The Foodie Crawl kicks off on Tuesday, September 16 at 6 p.m. with check-in at Mudflat Studios (81 Broadway) and near Louie’s Ice Cream (193 Broadway). The event runs until 8:30 p.m. and has a rain date of Wednesday, September 17.
Tickets are $20 for general admission in advance ($25 at the door), $15 for high school/college students with an ID and $5 for kids under 12. Proceeds benefit East Somerville Main Streets, a nonprofit working to build a bustling business district that fosters community and improves quality of life.
And today, I’ve got a chance for you to win two tickets to the Foodie Crawl!
