Pineapple and Pearls, Medium Rare and other area businesses are preparing to serve food and drink samples for the Taste of 8th festival next Saturday. Each sample will cost $5, but some locals have a chance to get them for free, as long as they’re willing to work for it.
Barracks Row Main Street, the group that puts on the annual food festival, are offering free tickets to volunteers who help with the festival. Those interested in volunteering can email the group to sign up.
Those who aren’t volunteering can purchase tickets online. A single taste costs $5 but hungry festivalgoers can buy 5 tickets for $20.
The festival will take place on Saturday, May 7 from 1-4 p.m. More than 16 Barracks Row-area eateries have already committed to the festival, including Sweet Lobby, Bayou Bakery and District Doughnut. The full list of participating businesses will be released on Barracks Row Main Street’s website.
