As American as baseball, hot dogs and apple pie,the Taste of the Town and Auction is a Chamber tradition that continues to be a favorite of our fans.
Loosen up your belts and prepare for some fine feasting on great cuisine prepared by local culinary masters. It will be a “Grand Slam Home Run” Double Header event featuring some of the best bites in town, so make plans to attend the Texas City-La Marque Chamber of Commerce Annual Taste of the Town and Auction on Thursday, May 10 at the Doyle Convention Center, 2010 5th Ave. N. in Texas City.
Taste of the Town and Auction is an all-you-can-eat event showcasing the most outstanding food and beverage establishments to promote Texas City, La Marque and other local area restaurants.
Ticket holders will hit a home run with their tummies loaded, delighted by tantalizing food samples from more than 25 area food establishments. With many major league local restaurants, bars and beverage distributors participating, this event provides a taste of something for everyone. Enjoy an evening of indulging as you stroll and sample the wide range of culinary delights.
Texas City’s celebrity chef, Nancy Manlove, winner of Food Network’s “Cutthroat Kitchen” will also be at the event this year. Known among her family and friends for her abundance of energy, Manlove, can lighten up any room. She will be a guest judge to determine the “Chef’s Choice” winner at Taste of the Town. Manlove received her culinary arts degree and went on to win food competitions and is currently the chef de cuisine at a farm-to-table restaurant.
As a restaurant, what better way to market to the community than to showcase and highlight your special menu items by providing a small sampling to attendees? As a local business, don’t miss the chance to market to members of the community and donate an item to be showcased in the live or silent auction.
The auction takes place immediately after the Taste of the Town. The live and silent auctions are the best place to shop. You’ll find that one-of-a-kind item at the popular silent auction. Whether bidding for yourself or shopping for a gift, you’re guaranteed to find something you simply must have. We urge you to bring your checkbooks, cash and credit cards and get ready to bid at the auction.
