The Annual Taste of Weehawken returns to the Food Court at Lincoln Harbor on Tuesday May 2nd. This marks the 17th year for the tremendously popular culinary fundraiser for the Weehawken Public Library.
Throughout the years, money raised at the Taste have been used to enhance many Library programs, such as art exhibits, guest lectures, and special events, as well as underwrite the cost of additional children’s programming and the acquisition of new technologies for all patrons.
“Everywhere I go in town, people rave about our public library,” said Mayor Richard F. Turner. “The Taste is the perfect opportunity for everyone to come out to show their support for this wonderful institution; allowing the Library to continue its diverse programs and activities for patrons of all ages.”
“The Taste is definitely a town-wide tradition,” added Leona Nersesian, President, of the Library Board of Trustees. “Everyone looks forward to the Taste!” Nersesian is also encouraging those planning on attending to purchase tickets early this year. “Once tickets go on sale in April, we urge patrons to purchase them right away; we’ve been fortunate to have near capacity crowds for the last two years and certainly don’t want to have to turn anyone away from this amazing event,” she added
Beyond the food from a variety of high profile restaurants in the area, the Taste also offers an amazing selection of wines, craft beers and after dinner cocktails for tasting, hosted by long-time Taste sponsor Giannone Wines & Liquor Company.
Tickets for The Taste are $60, which includes the Preview Hour (6:30 to 9:00 p.m.) or $40 for General Admission (7:30 to 9:00 p.m.) and will be available for purchase at the end of March.
