While the Coronavirus pandemic caused several area events to cancel for the year, the crew behind the Taste of Galesburg managed to find a way to hold a new-look version of the tasty event.
The Taste of Galesburg To Go was announced this week which will bring some semblance of normalcy to the summer but instead of running during the afternoon of a single day, the alternative look will run for five days during lunch and dinner hours, from July 19-23.
Organizer Deb Cratty tells WGIL that along with that change, the participating 21 restaurants this year will not take the tokens that are usually used to pay for food.
“We’ll do cash or card, whatever the restaurant accepts. Everything is one to five dollars, nothing more than five dollars,” Cratty told Galesburg’s Morning News. “Your tokens will definitely be taken next year. So, those will remain the same so hold on to those.”
The list of participating restaurants and the menus being offered can be found online, along with serving times for each establishment.
“The restaurants have the opportunity to provide their offerings at either lunch, dinner, or both and are handy-dandy charts that are on our Facebook page will let people know when the places are open. And, also what items they’re going to be offering for the Taste event,” said organizer Kraig Boynton.
