Yesterday I headed to the square in Clarkesville for the 5th Annual Taste of Clarkesville. It didn’t take long for the crowds to arrive and the lines to form. Oh, the lines. It could take 15 minutes to get to the food and often for tiny portions. The video gives you a taste of the Taste of Clarkesville.
You bought tasting tickets for a buck each with the proceeds join got the hats off to The Copper Pot, Hawg Wild, Yakimono Express and the Midtown Grill for realizing that events like this are a cost of doing business and you don’t try an shave costs by giving out tiny portions. The Attic was serving tasty shrimp cakes the size of a quarter. El Jinete served a nice portion of guacamole or a delicious queso with beef.
Hopefully next year they’ll have more vendors serving food so the the crowd, although having to stand in more lines, won’t have to wait as long in each line. Thank goodness they had tastes of beer as well.
