Each restaurant is bringing a “taste” of its foods prepared by top Sandy Springs chefs. Every session will allow event-goers to vote for the “Best Taste” award and deem that Chef’s bite as the greatest. Attendees will get a taste of many musical genres from GlowBand and The Geek Squad Band’s performances showcasing the 60’s, Motown, Jazz, Hip Hop and even today’s Top 40 hits.
