Eat Drink SLC 2019
April 19, 2019 @ 8:00 am – 5:00 pm
Nibble, nosh, sip and swirl the evening away while listening to live music on Tracy Aviary’s cool, green grounds at Eat Drink SLC on Wednesday, July 10th from 6:30 to 9:30pm. Festival-goers, aged 21 and over, will sample seasonal fare from many of Salt Lake’s leading restaurants and purveyors; sip from a selection of 80 wines from an international assortment of family-owned wineries; taste craft cocktails from small-batch distilleries, including several which are locally owned and operated; and enjoy local beers from award-winning Utah craft brewers. This year, there will be several new festival zones, each with a distinct culinary mix and entertainment feature.
“Eat Drink SLC is a delightful way to celebrate our community’s coming of age as a culinary hotspot and raise visibility for the vibrant food and drink scene with both locals and tourists,” says Tracey Thompson, president/owner of Vine Lore Wine and Spirits, one of the event’s co-producers. Vine Lore Wine & Spirits has gathered the evening’s roster of special wineries and distilleries and joined them with award-winning Salt Lake City restaurants and food businesses to create singular experience. “Eat Drink SLC marries food and drink in a way not found at other Utah events,” says Thompson. “The entire experience fosters an appreciation of the synergy between the two, all in a beautiful setting that tantalizes all the senses.
With tickets priced at $90, this summer evening social offers an approachable, affable and appetizing night out while supporting three local nonprofits that enhance Salt Lake’s community: Tracy Aviary, Neighborhood House, and SB Dance. Admission includes all food and drink and a complementary signature wine glass. Guests must be 21 years old and over. Please buy tickets early, as the event sells out each year.
Eat Drink SLC is hosted under a nonprofit partnership umbrella consisting of Tracy Aviary and SB Dance. These two organizations represent, respectively, a place and an arts-maker that contribute to the unique character of the community. A third nonprofit – Neighborhood House – represents an organization that empowers underserved youth from Salt Lake’s west side, many of whom are from families involved in the food and beverage industry. Eat Drink SLC’s mission is to honor the entire industry’s food chain including customers, business owners, managers, servers, culinary professionals, purveyors and agricultural workers.DRINK | Sip wines from an international selection of boutique wineries.
