I love when a new adventure comes to town. And when that adventure combines meeting new people, discovering new restaurants and getting a little bit of walking in-between courses it's downright incredible and all-out fun. You will experience all of this when you partake in DISHCRAWL.
Dishcrawl was founded by Tracy Lee, a vivacious entrepreneur who happens to be from the Bay area and even went to the same high school as my own 3 girls. So it was with extreme pleasure that I got to catch up with her, find out about Dishcrawl - and experience it first hand.
The way Dishcrawl works is you check out their website and see what events are happening in a particular area. Perhaps there is one in a nearby city you've been meaning to check out and this gives you even more reason to do so. Or maybe your business or personal travel just happens to take you to another city such as Austin, Toronto, New York or San Francisco (and more) then you can see if a local Dishcrawl is on the books during your stay. You'll be fortunate if that is the case because you will meet new people, savor delicious food from a variety of amazing restaurants and walk the neighborhood in the pursuit of the next mouth-watering treat.

While each of these restaurants starts at a different price point and has a different atmosphere and specialty, they each have a place on our now growing list of restaurants to frequent.

Another thing we enjoyed was the chance to meet the chefs at each of the restaurants. They took the time to talk about their menu and what went into the dishes we gobbled up.

Dishcrawl is great for a date night or evening out with friends. Check out the calendar of events and discover what's in your neighborhood.
