Taste of Bluffton, Restaurant Week set for April

Planning is underway for the seventh annual Taste of Bluffton, a festival celebrating the sights and flavors of the Lowcountry. This year’s event, to be held April 13, will include a cooking contest for people who aren’t professional chefs, a waiter’s race and a battle of the bands. It’s a day of fun for the whole family in Bluffton Village, sponsored by the Greater Bluffton Chamber of Commerce. For more information, call 843-757-1010 or go to blufftonchamberofcommerce.org.

In addition, the Greater Bluffton Chamber of Commerce will sponsor the town’s first-ever Restaurant Week from April 7-13, featuring six to eight local restaurants. The event will kick off April 7 at Hampton Lake, where local chefs will serve tapas-style dishes in five different locations throughout the community. Proceeds will support the chamber and Bluffton Self Help. For more information, go to www.tasteofbluffton.com.
