You've heard about chances to try the best food at the Oregon district, to try the best of the local food truck scene, and the best of the local wings scene, and of course you've heard about the Miami Valley Restaurant Week that gives area restaurants the chance to change it up with some new dishes.
Taste of Miami Valley is just about the most convenient option yet.
This annual event at RiverScape MetroPark returns this weekend, featuring more restaurants and more entertainment than years past. You may well be in the area anyway, as Friday will be Urban Nights, and Friday will be United Rehabilitation Services' Rubber Duck Regatta (Saturday 4pm).
The premise is pretty simple: over 20 local restaurants will be there, offering $2 to $6 entrees. New participants this year include Roost, Shish Wraps, Sweetum's, Agnes All Natural Grill, Crazy Mango Bar and Bistro, and Charleston BBQ. One way or another you'll be able to try food of all kinds from around Dayton, from seafood, barbecue, Italian food and Hispanic dishes, all the way to the chocolate covered bacon so many people raved about at this years BaconFest.
For entertainment, aside from the Regatta which will be at 4 p.m., will be a lineup of local bands, with Friday seeing Not That Bad, Forte, and Spungewurthy. Saturday will bring The Waiting and the Tom Petty Tribute Band.
"I always look forward to seeing all the restaurants, we have a really good group and enjoy talking with all of them," Amy Zahora of the Miami Valley Restaurant Association tells me. "I also enjoy seeing all the attendees and volunteers; I have become friends with a lot of them. I guess I enjoy seeing all my friends - the restaurants, volunteers, and attendees. It's just one big two day party. I love the Miami Valley."
