The Northeast International Taste and Tour Sept. 6 will give guests the tastes of Ethiopia, France, Haiti, Italy, Mexico, Somalia, Vietnam and America. Cuisine will be sampled under the roof of Don Bosco Center, 580 Campbell Ave., in the Columbus Park neighborhood. From images of previous events, it looks like desserts are a significant part of the menu. Order tickets early and save $10 on the event. Guests who purchase tickets early will receive special wrist bands to wear while on the trolley and for the entire event.
Along with the adventurous world cuisine, guests are invited to take a trolley ride and tour the sights of the Northeast. Mark Alford from Fox 4 will serve as the guest master of ceremonies. After quenching the appetite, dancing will be on tap with music provided by Grand Marquis Band. Along with dining and dancing, there will be a live auction with auctioneer Randy Easley.
