It's time to sharpen those tastebuds because the Rotary Club of the Abingtons' ninth annual Taste of the Abingtons is happening this weekend.
On Sunday, Sept. 29, from 5-8 p.m., the Nichols Village Hotel and Spa, 1101 Northern Blvd., Clarks Summit, will welcome more than 30 restaurants from throughout Northeast Pennsylvania, offering up their most popular dishes.
"Each year, all of our restaurants try to outdo each other in putting out absolutely delicious dishes," said Rotarian Roger Mattes. "The people who attend this event year after year make it a virtual who's who of the community. It's not simply a place to put on the feedbag, but rather a dinner party."
This year's new participants include MyGirls Café Grill, Sunrise Café, Red Lobster, Duffy's Coffee House, Blu Wasabi and Revello's Old Forge Pizza.
Returning participants include A Little Pizza Heaven, Atami Sushi, Beta Bread Bakery, Camelot Restaurant and Inn, Fern Hall, Glenburn Grill, Iron Pierce Catering, Manning's Farm Dairy, Nichols Village Hotel and Spa, Quaker Steak and Lube, Coopers, Bazil, Carmen's Ristorante at the Radisson Lackawanna Station Hotel, Gertrude Hawk Chocolates, Gerrity's Market, The Chef's Table at Keystone College, Sidel's, Weis Markets, Arcaro and Genell's Restaurant, State Street Grill, Cangiano's Italian Specialties and Ingrid's Swedish Meatballs.
"I love the camaraderie of our patrons who attend," Mattes said. "People come to spend time with their friends and have a good time. Just knowing that such an event is being done to help all the great things the Rotary does is icing on the cake."
All proceeds from the event will benefit the Rotary Club of the Abingtons' various charitible causes both locally and internationally.
Tickets for Taste of the Abingtons are $25. Entertainment for the evening will include Ken McGraw on piano and Devon Clarke on violin. Tickets are available at the door as well as online at www.eventbrite.com/event/7786590903.
