Airdronians looking for a way to sample some of Airdrie’s best restaurants in one night and support a local cause are in luck.
The Airdrie Summer Games committee is hosting an Around the World Travelling Supper on March 8, in the hopes of raising $8,000 to $10,000 for the Games.
“The idea was given to me by the Games committee and I looked at the restaurants in town and saw that this was a great way to (sample) all their menus (in one night),” said Miranda Skelton, one of the organizers for the event. Participating restaurants include TAJ Indian Restaurant and Sweet House, Paros on Main Street and Rico’s in the Village.
Those wanting to take part are asked to register at the Woodside Golf Course at 4:30 p.m. on March 8, where local foodies will be offered a complimentary drink before the night kicks off.
Shortly after, three busses will bring a maximum of 125 people to each restaurant where they will enjoy one meal at each local restaurant.
“The dress code is casual, as people will be getting in and out of the busses and it may be cold that weekend,” Skelton said.
The last bus will return to Woodside where dessert will be served and an after-party will begin.
Tickets are $125 per person and can be purchased at each participating restaurant, Woodside Golf Course, online through the Games’ website or at the Games head office on Main street.
“It’s a really fun event and we’re hoping everyone comes out and purchases tickets,” she said.
