A number of restaurants, local shops, tasting locations, and for adults over age 21, a Tapas on the Strand alcohol pairing with food at every stop, wine bars and pubs are also set to participate soon.

The launch of Tapas & Taste of the Strand is geared toward tourists looking to sample multiple restaurant menus and district attractions all in one outing. Visitors and those new to the island can use the event as a way of learning where to return for further exploration and repeat dining.

Parties can choose from family-friendly packages, food and drink pairings, or group and corporate packages. All tours are professionally hosted. All food, drink and restaurant gratuity expenses are covered by ticket prices. Automatic discounts are applied to seniors, veterans, firefighters, EMS, teachers and law enforcement personnel.

A spokesperson for the event says that Taste of the Strand is compliant with pandemic mandates. If restaurants are open for dining, tours will be available for booking.

Taste of, & Tapas of the Strand operates weekly from Thursdays to Sundays. Those interested in attending are advised to book their tickets early – packages sell out quickly. Those wishing to participate in the ‘Tapas’ food and alcoholic beverages pairing tours, or pub tours, are asked to arrange for their own transportation back to their lodgings.

All tours move at a comfortable pace and can sometimes carry on beyond established time frames. For this reason, the event is not recommended for children under twelve. Due to crowds and tight spaces in the establishments the tour visits, strollers and wheelchairs can not be accommodated.
