This year’s event will prove to be the best one yet . . . 

 

Taste of Westport is back and is being held at the Westport Inn from 6-9:30 on May 5. Some new as well as some tried and true local restaurants will have plenty of food for tasting, there will be freshly shucked oysters, desserts, and plenty to drink like wine and cocktails. While you’re wining and dining the night away check out the reggae vibe of Beto Petrillo and Rob Russo and the jazzed up duo of Matt Criscuolo and Tony Purrone. There will also be auction items like tickets to see Billy Joel, The Daily Show, pearl necklaces, dinner at Michael Jordan’s steakhouse, and more. Tickets are $75 if you buy them online or $85 at the door with profits going towards CLASP Homes of Westport.
