This Sunday the annual family friendly community event Taste of Arlington is returning to Ballston. 35 restaurants from around the area will be participating along with live music from The Constituents and Lethal Peanut.
Tickets are $25 online, or $30 at the event. Each ticket gets you 8 "tastes," each one being a small plate contributed from a local restaurant. It's a good way to sample alot of local fares, as long as you hit all the popular tables before the long lines start.
This year, three community non-profit organizations will receive a donation from the proceeds of the event -Arlington Community Foundation, the Virginia Hospital Center, and Phoenix Houses of the Mid-Atlantic.
