SOVCA Presents Taste of South Orange Food Stroll & Pub Crawl
April 28 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm$20
Food-lovers are spoiled for choice in South Orange’s downtown district, and for one night only, the numerous options can be savored for one small price. Hosted by the South Orange Village Center Alliance (SOVCA), the Taste of South Orange Food Stroll & Pub Crawl is back on Sunday, April 28, 4-7 pm, with more than one dozen participating eateries and taverns. Wristbands are currently available for advance purchase online and at Kitchen a la Mode, Sparkhouse Toys, and (starting April 13) at General Store’s Pop-up Kid Shop on Springfield Avenue in Maplewood. Hundreds will gather downtown to listen to live music while sampling delectable bites and beverages inside of each participating establishment. Downtown merchants Café Word Bookstore, Kitchen a la Mode and Sadie’s will be offering great discounts and promotions.
Advance purchase wristbands are $20 (adults), $15 (Seton Hall students), $5 (kids ages 3 to 8) and children 2 and under are free. Tickets are an additional $5 for adults on the day of the event and can be purchased at the event’s two stations on the corner of Sloan and South Orange Avenue and the other near Jackie & Son on the corner of Prospect Street. Beverages and pub crawl drinks are cash bar and not covered by the entrance fee. As part of the event’s give back mission, 20% of all ticket sales will be donated to Meeting Essential Needs with Dignity (MEND) and MEND’s green bean bus will be parked by Spiotta Park to accept shelf-stable food donations. For a full list of participants, visit SOVCA online. The South Orange Food Stroll & Pub Crawl is generously sponsored by Natalie Farrell of Weichert Realtors.
