Last year Harriet Reymond gave us tickets to The Taste of the Ville and we had such a great time that we shared in the church email when tickets went on sale this year in the hope that others would join us for the adventure this year.
Simply put most of the restaurants in Aggieville give out a single serving of some food or drink. Participants then travel around with a punch card to each stop over a two hour period. This year we had an even better time than last year with such a fun group of people.
We’ll do it again in 2016, so when you see tickets are for sale buy them and prepare for a fast paced Aggieville food adventure.
At Tubby’s the men got on the bar and while I’d like to blame the alcohol not a single drink was had.

One of things that made this year fun was a goal to complete the whole list and we did with about 4 minutes to spare. At the end we shared what we were most surprised by and what was the best item.
The overwhelming victor of the best item was:
- Varsity Donuts who had a hot cinnamon sugar donut.
Biggest surprises (in a good way) were:
- Bluemont Hotel who served Pot Stickers and Hummus with Pita Bread
- Keltic Star Public House who served Bread Pudding
- Eighteen 63 who served fried pickles.
Most of the restaurants did a great job, the only disappointments were Fuzzy’s Tacos who gave about a tablespoon of rice or beans and Taco Lucha because they didn’t participate at all.

Bluemont Hotel Lounge – Pot Stickers and Hummus with Pita Bread
