Take a Bite Out of Andersonville

126974-250.gifThe Taste of Andersonville brings many of the neighborhood's best places to eat--Lady Gregory's, Premise, M. Henry and more--for an evening of sampling their eats and exploring the area. At the end, meet at Swedish Bakery for cookies. Sound good? You can pick the Salt or Pepper routes (nine restaurants each, $25), or if you're feeling adventurous and wear good shoes, do the Whole Enchilada ($40). Event is August 15; you can start eating at 4pm, which gives you plenty of time to indulge and then work it off before heading home.
