Get a Taste of Downtown Silver City,
September 23


The fourth weekend in September is, as usual, a delicious time to be in historic downtown Silver City. On Saturday, Sept. 23, the Silver City MainStreet Project will again sponsor the annual "Taste of Downtown Silver City." A $15 ticket buys you samples from more than 15 restaurants and other food-related businesses from one end of downtown to the next. "Taste" will also celebrate the annual apple harvest, at the Silver City Farmers' Market, present a showcase of area musicians and screen a "food" movie—Soul Food—at the Silco Theater.

For a complete list of participating restaurants and further details, including locations to purchase tasting tickets, contact Silver City MainStreet Project, 534-1700, (800) 548-9378, www.silvercitymainstreet.com.
