Take a Taste Trip Around the World at Tastemakers of Delray Beach Friday Night

Ever dream of taking a trip around the world -- not just to see the sights -- but also to taste all the fabulous food each country has to offer?

Well, what if we told you it was possible to do so without leaving Florida? And all you'll need is a passport -- to Tastemakers of Delray Beach, that is.

This fabulous food and drink event will be offering up free fare from restaurants across downtown Delray Beach, where each participating establishment will be representing a different country or cuisine from around the world. It's a great way to get a taste of all Delray has to offer, at a fraction of the price.

Think of it like a pub-crawl, but featuring food as well as drink. More than 20 restaurants are handing out samples for the event to benefit the Delray Beach Centennial Celebration.

For $25, your passport -- purchasable at any participating location -- will get you different deals and complimentary tastings of food, wine, beer or cocktails during the evening-long chow-down. To make the deal even sweeter, you'll also be eligible for future savings: four months of dining promotions at 24 different Delray Beach restaurants.

Here, a slideshow of Thursday night's events from various restaurants around town.

A passport ($25 cash only) for a pub-like crawl of more than 20 restaurants offering free food and drink.
