Taste Of Estes April 17th

Taste-QuotaThis is the 30th year of this Estes Park tradition, an event that combines philanthropy, food, and fun in that way only this town can.

For those of you unfamiliar with the event, Taste of Estes is a fundraising event for the Estes Park Quota Club that is wholly supported by the restaurants that participate. Restaurants offer samples of their favorite dishes, and guests have the rare opportunity to try a ‘taste’ of over 20 entrées in one night–all for just $18 in advance, $20 at the door.

Participating restaurants this year are Peppers Mexican Grill, The View, Estes Park Pie Shop, The Egg & I, Grandma’s Mountain Cookies, LongZ Grill at Rocky Mountain Park Inn, Oskar Blues, The Dunraven Inn, Cables Pub and Grill, Smokin’ Dave’s BBQ and Taphouse, Starbucks, El Mex-Kal, The Big Horn Restaurant, Cheesy Lee’s Amazing Pizza, Molly B’s, Wild Rose Food and Spirits, Notchtop Café, The Stanley Hotel, Sweet Basilico Café, YMCA of the Rockies and Mountain Strong restaurant.

A fun addition to Taste of Estes is Quota Club’s drawing for a one of a kind, artist crafted flower pot or birdhouse which are now on display at MedX. At the front desk, you can purchase tickets to enter the drawing to win one of these lovely creations.

On the day of the Taste, Quotarians will move the pots and birdhouses over to the Conference Center where you’ll have another opportunity to enter the drawing which will be held that evening. The winners names will be drawn at the end of the night and those who win will be able to take their wonderful new artisan crafted flower pot or birdhouse home with them.

Proceeds from ticket sales support numerous community service projects, including key funding for new ambulances. Quota’s impact extends to everyone. Projects include improving laundry facilities for assisted living facilities and high school driving safety projects. They provide scholarships for aspiring adult students, and the life-changing gift of hearing aids. If you break your leg and need to borrow some crutches or a hospital bed at no cost, Quota Club has a loan closet that can provide that equipment. Quota’s projects affect everyone in Estes Park.

Chances are, you or someone you know has been positively affected by one of Quota’s projects. Thank them by filling up on some of Estes Park’s best food. The restaurants are going to a lot of work to bring you an unmatched evening of tasty samples, and it’s a night you won’t soon forget!

Tickets are now available at the Estes Park Visitor’s Center, Macdonald Book Shop, Poppy’s Pizza and Grill, Estes Park News, MedX of Estes or from any Quota member.

Join us at The Rocky Mountain Park Inn, from 5:30-8 p.m., for the 30th Taste Of Estes. You’ll be wonderfully full and you’ll spend a great night with this community. And you will be helping Quota Club continue doing what they do so very well.
