Big appetites wanted for 'A Taste of Almont'


DDA hosts week long promotion of downtown eateries, food services


February 27, 2008
ALMONT — If you're suffering from another bout of cabin fever, the Almont Downtown Development Authority has a plan to get you out of the house and feed you at the same time.

From March 8-16, the DDA is hosting "A Taste of Almont," a downtown business promotion that gives residents and visitors a chance to sample some of the cuisine available at local eateries.

For the price of a $10 ticket, participating restaurants and businesses are offering a selection of food items throughout the week.

Consumers need only present their tickets at any of the nine participating businesses, have them punched and receive the featured menu item.

Businesses taking part include: Almont Pastry & Donut Shop, one apple flip; Buccilli's, one cupcake; Charlie Brown's, one Brownie Super Bowl; The Huddle Bar and Grill, one bowl of soup and 30% off any sandwich; Hungry Howie's, one small pepperoni pizza; Maria's Place, one soup and sandwich combo; The Mill & Brewhouse, one 12-ounce beverage of choice and a baked good; Roza's Pizza, one small calzone; and San Diego Mexican Restaurant, one Quesadilla Dorada. Tickets are available at each of the locations.

DDA Director Nancy Boxey says the event has helped generate goodwill and a spirit of cooperation among the participating businesses.

"So far, our response has been wonderful," said Boxey. "People seem genuinely excited to see what we have to offer food-wise in the community. It introduces our residents to restaurants they may not have visited before."

While the promotion is aimed at giving support to local businesses, Boxey says ticket buyers are getting a great deal.

"Ten dollars a ticket is a heck of a value," she says. "We hope a lot of people will take advantage, while helping out our local restaurants and food services."

Tickets are available at all of the participating businesses, the DDA office, Tri-County Bank, K-9 Clip and Cut Loose.
