Crested Butte Restaurant Week will have a new twist this 2013. This year’s celebration is called as the “Taste of CB”. It highlights the different local eateries and restaurants, as well as the lodging establishments throughout the area. Event planners, Rachael Gardner of Crested Butte Events and Crista & Kaitlin Ryan of Sparkplug Productions, have joined forces in order to bring the best of Crested Butte’s dining experience to visitors. The Taste of CB will be this coming June 19 to 22, 2013.
And just like the traditional way of celebrating the Crested Butte Restaurant Week, people can enjoy daily deals at restaurants all over the place. There will also be three ticketed evening events in part of this year’s celebration of Crested Butte’s best cuisines.
Host a Private Chef Dinner
Warm up your taste buds and be prepared for the said event. Residents can host a private chef dinner, on either June 19 or 20. They can do so in the privacy of their own home, or perhaps in combination with the lodging partners. You can surly enjoy a world class meal with your closest friends, even with just wearing your PJs or other comfortable clothes.
The Cocktail Challenge
Another option would be to step out of your homes and experience some local color during the Friday night’s cocktail challenge. The different bars and restaurants will feature their cocktail contenders all throughout the week. This is an effort to be one of the two finalists in the Friday face-off. Taste the samples, vote and cheer for your favorite bartender. Costumes are encouraged, you might win something too.
The Mystery Progressive Dinner
At the Saturday night, diners will join a progressive dinner. The evening begins in one of the town’s many parks with a welcome cocktail and pretty mountain views. While guests are sipping on the featured cocktails, participants will be given a ticket showing the first of three stops in the tour. Each course will be revealed by clue, enabling diners to stroll around from one fine dining experience to the next. You can sign up individually, or bring your friends with you.
And last but not the least, lodging and recreation businesses will be offering their own incentives during the Taste of CB event. With all the food during the Restaurant Week, you might need to burn those calories through outdoor adventures offered at Crested Butte like biking, hiking, and fishing.
