What's a restaurant crawl?

Venues offer a signature sample of their food, a sweet treat, or a unique drink to all attendees. You walk from restaurant to restaurant as fast or slow as you like. You get a "Passport" for the route that you select that has the venues along your route. As you walk along, you will also enjoy a variety of entertainment and live music.

Tickets

$40 adults,
$13 kids (12 and under),
$25 students (with valid ID, includes university),
$25 seniors (60+).

All tickets purchased day-of the event online or at the registration table are an additional $5 each, pending availability. Flavors sells out, so act fast!

Vegetarian?

While the restaurants decide what food item(s) to offer, we highly encourage them to provide a veggie option, although not required. The Kedzie and Montrose routes are the most veggie friendly, based on the prior years.
