A local favorite is set to take place tomorrow evening.
The Taste of Laredo, or as I like to call it, 'an outlet for people who don't know what to do with themselves on school nights,' will be teeming with hungry Laredoans ready to sample something that they've already eaten a thousand times, for the small price of $22 a pop.
In my life I've attended this event only twice, both times at the arena. Years back it used to be hosted by the Laredo Civic Center. Organizers made the venue change, I figure, because of the more ample parking facilities. I don't really care for the new setting; the warehouse feature isn't all that cozy to promote healthy digestion.
This year I'm going to opt for something different: the upcoming Bridal Affair. This one showcases the latest in bridal necessities, from attire to catering. It's free and the food booths look like they provide a more selective menu than donuts with colored sprinkles. It'll be interesting to see what's in demand in the area of weddings and what not. Could Wrangler jeans with a bowtie still be in vogue? I will find out.
