Valdosta restaurants gather for celebration of food

VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - It is almost that time of year again when you can put your diet on hold.

The Annual Taste of Downtown event in Valdosta is days away and tickets are limited.

Several downtown restaurants will gather on Monday under one roof at the Patterson and provide samples of their best dishes to kick off Restaurant Week.

The goal is to get people to come out and be social over good food and drinks.

"If you're not comfortable with just walking into the door, maybe you just don't know what to quite expect from each restaurant, you can come to the Taste of Downtown and kind of see what everybody is about," explained Main Street Director Ellen Hill.

Tickets are $20, that gets you food samples and adult beverages from all the restaurants.

The event begins at 5 p.m. and goes until food runs out.
