Live Blogging: Taste of Rockland, the First Look

0

I’m here as they’re setting up Taste of Rockland, the benefit for ARC at the Pearl River Hotel tonight. There isn’t any food or drink out yet, but here’s a look at some of the participants… all of whom are blown up on poster 4-feet tall and hanging from the walls and ceiling. I have to admit it was a little, well, odd, that the first one that caught my eye was at centerstage behind the podium. I’ll show you that one at the end.

Our first surprise… a new addition to Pearl River that opened just three weeks ago. Looking forward to trying that!

Most of the posters have the name of the restaurant or business underneath:
