Taste of Tamarac gathers restaurants from the city and surrounding communities for one delectable day. Presented by the Tamarac Chamber of Commerce, the event is intended to connect the general community with the area's local restaurants — first by giving the public a taste of some of the lesser-known (or local favorite) restaurants and allowing restaurants to expand their customer base through more exposure. If you're in the service industry, you might even be able to land a job; think of it as a culinary networking event too. Attendees will be able to sample a wide range of cuisine, from Colombian to Chinese, courtesy of more than 25 restaurants. There will also be cooking demos, chef demos, giveaways, a kids' zone, and other attractions. More than 1,000 people are expected to attend. Tickets prices start at $8 for adults and $4 for kids (aged 6 to 12), and kids under 6 get in for free. Taste of Tamarac will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at the Tamarac Community Center (8601 W. Commercial Blvd., Tamarac). Call 954-597-3620 or visit tasteoftamarac.org.
