The all-you-can-eat-and-drink party happens on April 9, 2023, starts at 6 p.m. and ends whenever you’re too full or drunk. Best of all is that much of it takes place at 1010 N Macinnes Pl. in downtown Tampa, right there on the Riverwalk.
While the full restaurant list for 2023’s installment of Taste at the Straz (stylized "TASTE") has yet to be announced, a few popular Tampa Bay restaurants that we hope return for another year include The Brunchery, Fresh Kitchen, Bavaro's, Noble Crust, Buy Ramen, Columbia, Portillo's and Butter's Burgers—alongside many, many more.
Tickets for Taste at the Straz happening on Saturday, April 9 are on sale now, starting at $95 for general admission. VIP tickets go for $175 each, but come with a variety of perks like early entry and access to all VIP lounges, in addition to all you can eat and drink. And if you’re really trying to spend some bread, you can reserve a $2,000 table for you and nine of your closest friends.
Funds raised from next year’s Taste at the Straz supports the theater’s various programs. As the Straz team says, “supporting the arts never tasted so good.”
In addition to a wide spread of local eats, wine, cocktails and craft beer, live music will take place on 4 different outdoor stages throughout the event. The exact lineups are yet to be announced, so make sure to follow its Facebook page and @strazcenter on Instagram for the latest updates on 2023’s TASTE at the Straz party.
According to its website, the Straz Center has raised upwards of $3 million for its art initiatives and programs since the inception of TASTE many years ago.
