The second annual Taste of Vienna went off successfully at the Vienna Volunteer Fire Station on Saturday April 27, 2013.
This is such a fun event where local eateries showcase their culinary skills and offer “bites” – for a buck, two or four. Proceeds go to the Vienna Volunteer Fire Department, and they lucked out with a wonderful spring day. There were probably 300 people eating when I went around 2:00. (scheduled to go to 8:00)
Just a short walk from the Community Center and W&OD Trail, the VVFD parking lot was rocking with live entertainment and approximately 25 restaurants.
Vienna is now a Foodie destination
Okay, my unofficial winner was the pulled pork slider from Chef Geoff’s. These slow roasted pork sliders are a staple of the famous “Bacon Bar”, and were served on a fresh roll and topped with colorful, crisp peppers.
Vienna now has a good number of small restaurants that offered everything from Italian fare to Thai, and an interesting selection of pastries and gourmet deserts. For an average foodie want-to-be like me, it was fun to sample and meet the people from these local restaurants.
Thinking of everything, the VVFD had corporate sponsors for tables under tents so folks could sit and enjoy their food. Although this community event provided a good time for many and highlighted the exciting tastes of Vienna, the VVFD has served an essential need to our community for over 100 years. Remember, VVFD host Bingo every Sunday night in the Flame Room in the Fire House on Center Street starting at 7pm.
