The township's culinary event of the season is here. A Taste of Jefferson, a presentation of the Jefferson Arts Committee, is scheduled for Saturday night at St. Thomas the Apostle Church’s Parish Hall.
Those attending will have the unique opportunity to sample a wide variety of food and beverage items from some of the best eateries in Jefferson Township and the immediate area. Organizers say the evening will present a wonderful opportunity for area residents to enjoy dinner for a fraction of what a night out would cost. In addition they get the chance to experience the offerings of more than a dozen area restaurants in one night, socialize with friends and family and meet new friends.
The JAC said local restaurants, eateries and delicatessens will present trays of their wares—prepared in their own kitchens—and serve them buffet style at the church hall. A Taste of Jefferson is a BYOB event, and live entertainment will be provided by the Jefferson Township Community Jazz Band.
As of this week, the restaurant lineup is as follows: TJ's Pizzeria Cafe, The Evergreen, Tuscany Brewhouse, Casa Bianca, Pizza Station Pizza & Pasta, Little Nicki's, Pinto's Pizza and Catering, Subway, Alice's Restaurant, AJ's Country Cone, The Jefferson Diner, A Chocolate Lab, Portofino Family Restaurant, The Milton A&P, Mario's Pizza & Restaurant, Jefferson Dairy, Paul & Christa's Diner, Wearhouse Grill, Texas Smokehouse BBQ, Gatwyns II, Simply Sweet Cakes & Treats, Charley’s Tavern, Deli Works and Frank’s Pizza of Route 15.
Doors open at 6:30 and dinner begins at 7:15.
