Where to eat at 2nd Saturday Downtown



Another 2nd Saturday Downtown urban fest is upon us for Saturday, April 12, 2014, 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.  Since this is dinner time, lots of folks stop by & eat at the food trucks located near the Scott Avenue Stage while listening to the great music.  I’ve enjoyed the authentic German bratwurst & pretzel at Haus of Brats at that location.

However, there are lots of other choices in the restaurants located in or near downtown, and the 2nd Saturdays Downtown website has a terrific listing by food category (click here).

For example, some of my favorite foods are:


But I also like to eat at Cafe 54, Sparkroot, Empire Pizza & Pub, and of course the elegant Cafe Poca Cosa, which changes their menu daily.

Enjoy 2nd Saturday Downtown, coming up to their 4th year anniversary next month.  For entertainment schedule, go to their website & click on “Schedule“.
