You've probably heard of a "pub crawl:" That's when a group of people visit several pubs or bars and have a drink or two at each.
But have you heard of a "dish crawl?" That's when a group of people meet up for a progressive meal with multiple stops in a specific neighborhood.
Dishcrawl is a food tour operator that makes its debut in Syracuse Wednesday (June 18), in the Armory Square neighborhood. Three restaurant stops are planned, according to Dishcrawl Syracuse Ambassador Betsy Bell. The evening will begin at Small Plates, continue to La Piazza and end at Empire Brewing Co.
Participants will sample a trio of dishes at each stop, including a dessert at Empire, Bell says. Drinks are not included in ticket price but drink specials or pairings might be available at the individual restaurants.
How it works: Purchase tickets ($45) at the Dishcrawl Syracuse website before Monday (June 16). Meet at 7 p.m. at Small Plates, 116 Walton St. Bring your appetite
"Dishcrawl does other really creative events too - brunch crawls, secret suppers, private events, chef battles, etc.," Bell says. "I'm really looking forward to bringing some exciting food events to our fans."
The first Dishcrawl Syracuse is open to about 40 participants, Bell says. The first 10 readers of this blog post who purchase tickets will receive a $10 discount on ticket price. Tickets must be purchased before Monday (June 16). When you purchase a ticket, enter eatfirst in the discount code bar.
