On Friday, April 28th, it's time to eat your way through the East End when the Tuckahoe School PTO presents the 7th annual Taste of Tuckahoe. Taking place at 230 Elm
in Southampton, over 20 restaurants, bakeries, wineries and breweries - spanning from Greenport to East Hampton - will offer up culinary delights that will supremely satisfy all attendees.
"We are so happy to be bringing Taste of Tuckahoe to the community for a seventh straight year," shared PTO Co-Secretary Kathy Grigo. "It is amazing to us that this event continues to grow and generate new attendees, and we are beyond grateful that we can take the money earned from the event and use it to help benefit the students at Tuckahoe School."
From 7 to 10 p.m., partygoers can test out a signature dish or drink from each establishment. A special VIP Hour, with an open bar and early access to the food and drinks, will take place from 6 to 7 p.m.

And, in addition to the irresistible bites and sips, the benefit will also feature Chinese and Silent Auctions with items donated by local businesses that you'll find hard not to want to win them all.
The spring tasting event - that brought out over 400 people in 2016 - offers the unique chance to nosh on bites from several East End favorites while they're all under the same roof, which is certainly a rarity. Event organizers expect this year's benefit to have an even bigger turnout than last year's.
