About The 2017 Restaurant and Food Expo

For years, listeners, viewers, visitors to Lunch Bunch and Supper Club events have asked me to put on an event similar to the Taste of Douglas County, but in Colorado Springs. Well, mark your calendar because the 7th Annual Restaurant & Food Expo will be held this date from 5-8PM at The Academy Hotel, 8110 North Academy Boulevard just off I-25. It is being called a food and restaurant festival because there will be a wide variety of restaurants along with a number of food suppliers as well. The Academy Hotel has a fabulous banquet room and a beautiful atrium that will be perfect for an event on this nature.

Some of the restaurants that will be participating include The Airplane Restaurant, Mason Jar, L & L Hawaiian Barbecue, Crave Real Burgers, Paravicini's Italian Bistro, and The Academy Hotel.

There will be plenty of treats from Patsy's Candy, Colorado Kernels Gourmet Popcorn, Mark Schlereth's (you remember Mark, the old Bronco lineman) "Stinkin" Good Green Chili, as well as smoothies from Keva Juice, coffee from Serranos, and sodas from Sugarland Sodas.

Tickets will be $20 at the door, but only $10 in advance (kids four and under will be free). Tickets will be available on line at www.restaurantandfoodexpo.com or you can purchase tickets in person (after September 10) at The Airplane Restaurant, 1665 North Newport at Powers and Fountain, or the L & L Hawaiian Barbecue at 5850 Barnes Road at Powers. I will also have tickets available at my Lunch Bunch events leading up to the festival, or you can order by mail with a check payable to: Restaurant & Food Expo, 353 West Prestwick Way, Castle Rock, Colorado 80104.

Don't miss this. It will be a fabulous event and give attendees a great opportunity to try a number of fine establishments at one time and for a small ticket price. Plenty of free parking. If you have any questions, or are a food service establishment that might like to participate, give me a call at 303-903-0017.
