This is “Small Bites,” a South Florida Sun Sentinel feature with tiny tidbits on the food and beverage scene — because we know that sometimes you just don’t have room for a long article. You want a little news brief instead, an amuse bouche of information, if you will. Enjoy!
Attention food fans and history buffs … there’s a progressive dinner party traveling through Boca Raton (and Deerfield Beach) that just might satisfy both camps.
A sip-and-sup tour known as “Toasts, Tastes & Trolleys” — where you hop on and off a trolley while having dinner-by-the-bite and signature cocktails at a series of restaurants — is returning in September for its ninth season since the last excursion in 2019. Along the way, historical tidbits will also be shared during this fundraiser by The Schmidt Boca Raton History Museum.
The night starts with a reception at the Waterstone Resort & Marina, then a trolley ride to Privaira Hangar, American Social, Sushi by Bou, The Boca Raton resort and Cove Brewery (in nearby Deerfield Beach)
“Toasts, Tastes & Trolleys is a fun way to experience some of Boca Raton’s history and learn about the future of our beautiful city while visiting a few of our favorite local restaurants,” says Mary Csar, executive director of the Boca Raton Historical Society.
“Toasts, Tastes & Trolleys” is set for 6 to 10 p.m. Friday, Sept. 22.
The tour begins and ends at the Waterstone Resort & Marina, 999 E. Camino Real, Boca Raton.
Tickets are $150 per person.
Before the “Toasts, Tastes & Trolleys” event, the museum will host another edition of its “Summer Sips & Sounds” concert series, on Thursday, Sept.7, with a cocktail reception at 6 p.m. followed by the performance at 6:45 p.m. The theme is “Music of the 1980s.” Tickets are $45 (or $40 for Boca Raton Historical Society members). To order, go to bocahistory.org/summer-sips-sounds.
