Sunday in Ballston: Taste of Arlington
The annual Taste of Arlington event takes place in Ballston this Sunday on Wilson Boulevard in front of Ballston Common Mall! There are at least 30 restaurants participating, including some of my favorites like Carlyle and Tallula.
You can buy six "tastes" online for $21 ($20 plus a $1 service fee), but online sales end May 17th. After that, you can buy six tastes at the event for $25.
Taste of Arlington benefits Community Residences, a leading non-profit provider of programs and services for individuals with mental retardation, mental illness, developmental and physical disabilities, as well as the homeless. Community Residences operates over 40 programs in Virginia and Maryland serving over 1,200 individuals each year, with 28 programs right here in Arlington.
After the Taste, Community Role Models will be hosting an after party for volunteers at Front Page. Details and signup are at the CRM website. If you're interested in learning more about CRM and meeting the people involved, stop by!
