Last Night's Dishcrawl Was a Tour de Gastronomy Through Las Olas

For all of you who don't know what Dishcrawl is, it's an event geared especially toward foodies and those who just wanna eat. This guided tour takes participants to four local restaurants, allowing them to taste specialty meals. The kicker, however, is that those partaking in Dishcrawl have no idea what restaurants they are stopping at, let alone what they are being served, until the night of the event. Las Olas was the village of choice for last night's Dishcrawl.

Rebecca Shapiro, the Broward Dishcrawl event coordinator, says the secrecy only adds appeal. "It helps build anticipation," says Shapiro. "It's a food adventure. Plus, it may cause judgment [about the restaurants] if you know beforehand."
