The West End Association is now conducting its second annual Taste of Bristol promotion to showcase Bristol restaurants and food establishments. The 2014 event will be offered throughout March, and features a special ticket that — when presented at participating restaurants — entitles the bearer a 20 percent discount on the total food costs for his or her party’s meals, not including liquor, tax or tip.
More than 30 local restaurants and food establishments are participating, honoring the 20 percent discount (one-time use per card per restaurant). Additionally, approximately $500 in raffle prizes (mostly restaurant gift certificates) will be awarded, with every ticket purchased eligible for the raffle pool. Last year, over 1,000 tickets were sold to support West End Association events and activities, including the Rockwell Park Summer Festival, which drew more than 10,000 visitors to the August event. Many of the same restaurants from last year’s promotion are participating in 2014, and several new establishments have been added.
2014 discount tickets are now on sale for only $5 each. The purchase automatically enters buyers in this year’s raffle. The Taste of Bristol is being promoted by the Greater Bristol Chamber of Commerce, which is selling tickets at its office. Tickets also are available at several other locations, and will be sold at the Bristol Home and Business Expo on February 22 and February 23 at BristolEasternHigh School.
