Taste of Arlington

The annual Taste of Arlington had a full turnout today in spite of the forecast of possible rain. The event was sponsored by the non-profit Community Residences and was very family friendly, with a moon bounce and a 'Vertical Reality' harnessed trampoline for the kids.

The event took place on Wilson Blvd between Randolph and Taylor streets in Ballston. A $25 ticket allowed guests to get 8 "tastes", which could be redeemed at tents hosting every restaurant in the area. All variations of eats were available, from Whole Foods, Willow Bar, Union Jacks and Melting Pot to name a few.

Lots of free entertainment was provided during the day, starting with a poetry reading by Bus Boys & Poets staff. The three man band One Ton Wonton then kicked out some funk rock tunes and a cover of Sublime.
