"We always look forward to hosting Taste the East End at the Long Island Aquarium each year!" shared Chelsea Lambert and Nicole Buckley of Taste the East End. "We get to reconnect with vendors from past events, as well as welcome new businesses from out here on the East End."
From 7 to 10 p.m., sips from craft beverage makers will be matched with signature dishes from local restaurants and food vendors, which attendees will be invited to sample as they muse at the scenic aquatic life around them.
"We love introducing our guests to all of the great food and craft beverage pairings that have been created for this event," the duo added. "The live music and the beauty of the aquarium is also an added bonus to this fun-filled evening!"
Admission is $64.95 per person and the event is open to only those 21 and over.
