Tasty Tuesdays are a super fun way to experience multiple Downtown restaurants all in one night! You get hearty sample sizes with each ticket, and move from place to place at your own pace!
Tastings begin at 4:30pm and end at 9pm. Here’s how it works:
Purchase your ticket package from LDDA. Tickets come in packets of 10 for $25. (additional packs may be purchased in increments of $5 which is 2 tickets)
• In advance in person from our Downtown Lakeland office located at 117 N. Kentucky Ave. via cash or credit – Office hours are 10am to 5pm MTW & F.
• Purchase online
• Pick up your tickets anytime in advance of the event from the LDDA office located at 117 N. Kentucky Ave. Office hours are 10am to 5pm MTW & F or the night of the event by 7pm.
• Purchase the night of the event, April 20, until 7pm from the LDDA office located at 117 N. Kentucky Ave.
In addition to the physical tickets to use to receive your tastes, you’ll receive a map of participating businesses and their locations.
This is a self guided, tasting event. Go in your own order and at your own pace. You can use more than one ticket at any location if you choose.
