Taste Of Tuckahoe benefits school programming

Savor Local Flavor For a Good Cause




The highly anticipated spring benefit event, Taste of Tuckahoe, benefitting the Tuckahoe School, will be held on Friday, April 12, from 7 to 10 PM at 230 Elm in Southampton.

The event, in its ninth year, raises funds that go toward enriching the educational programs, technology, the arts, literary, and beyond at the school.

Taste of Tuckahoe is a foodie paradise. Participating local restaurants and businesses each highlight a signature dish of their choosing, allowing guests to savor local flavors all under one roof. More than 400 guests are expected to attend.

Participating vendors this year include 230 Elm, 75 Main, Bake My Day, Centro Trattoria & Bar, DeJesus Deli & Taqueria, Edgewater Restaurant, The Golden Pear Cafe, Hampton Coffee Company, Hampton Farms, Katie Cakes & Confections, Krieg’s Bakery, La Hacienda, Melrose East, Montauk Brewing Company, North Sea Tavern & Raw Bar, Paul’s Italian Restaurant, Saaz, Twin Fork Beer Co., Union Cantina, and Wölffer Estate Vineyard.

Attendees can try their luck at both Chinese and silent auctions. Music will be provided by DJ Chris Cenzoprano, and there will also be a photo booth.

For those eager to get a head start on the fun, a special VIP hour from 6 to 7 PM will include live music by Southampton native Liam Meaney. Meaney spent his post-high school years in Galway, Ireland where he sang on the streets to support himself. Now back on Long Island, he has showcased his talent at wineries, bars, restaurants, and charity events. His music is described as a blend of old-folk style with modern-day influences.

Tickets are $35 in advance, $50 at the door, and $75 for VIP tickets. Visit www.tasteoftuckahoe.com.
