Food Tasting: Taste of Allston June 15

All this talk about food is making me hungry... too bad I'll be on my way home from a wedding on Sunday and not around for the Taste of Allston Village taking place on Sunday, June 15 from 11 AM to 3 PM.
Participating restaurants include Aneka Rasa Malaysian Cuisine, Bagel Rising, Big City, Cafe Belo, Café Mitti’s, Deep Ellum, The Draft, First Bite Café, Fun Food Snackery, Grain & Salt, Grasshopper, International Pizza & Subs, Pizzawings, Rangoli, Reef Café, Seoul Bakery, Sunset Grill & Tap, T. J. Scallywaggle's, Uno's Chicago Grill, Wonder Bar, YoMa (my favorite), and many more!

Proceeds benefit the Allston Village Main Streets (AVMS) organization, which according to their website is "part of the country's first city-wide, multi-district Main Street revitalization program, a non-profit, public-private partnership between the City of Boston, the National Main Street Center and neighborhood stakeholders."

They work to keep Allston clean, safe, and appealing to merchants and consumers. Though Allston has its share of funky shops and cafes, the sheer number of people around mean it still needs a lot of sprucing up.

So - do your part, and enjoy the heck out of the Taste of Allston Village. Tickets are just $20 and can be purchased online ahead of time.
