These days, $15 can barely get you a meal at one restaurant, let alone 15.
The one exception would be this year's third annual on Wednesday, May 16, in which $15 will get you food from yes, count 'em, 15 Union City restaurants.
In other words, for just $1 per restaurant, you'll get to sample a dish at every restaurant on this list:
- Baskin Robbins
In addition to promoting the fine restaurants of Union City, the Restaurant Stroll also benefits the Lion's Club of Union City, which works tirelessly year-round to further important community causes.
Lion's Club representatives say, proceeds of this event will be given back to the community by means of donations to local youth groups, community projects, funding of the club's student scholarships, the annual Seniors’ Thanksgiving Dinner, and the Ear of Lion and Lions Eye Foundations, to name just a few.
To participate in the Restaurant Stroll, all you need to do is purchase your $15 ticket book, which acts as a "passport" of sorts to get you a free sample of one of the specialties of each restaurant on the list.
However, wait not, the Lion's Club cautions - only 300 ticket books can be sold, and the event has sold out early the past two years. So act fast and get your ticket book soon!
The event begins at 5:30 p.m. at Union Landing.
Ticket books can be purchased by calling Lion's Club members Bill Stone at 510-673-0093, or Gloria Gutierrez at 510-475-4110. Tickets will only be sold at the event if it does not sell out in advance.
