Thursday, March 27's Lowdown

-Plan For Future Fun with the Lowdown Lookahead-

If you long to wander the streets scrounging for small morsels of food, this is the night for you, sir or madam.

If you're unfamiliar with the drill for the annual Taste of Main Street event -- happening tonight in Old Town Eureka, obviously -- let the Lowdown clue you in. For your $25 price of admission, you get a small booklet containing tickets redeemable at 26 local establishments, each with menu of minor edibles prepared specifically for this evening. You have three hours to hurry from grub to grub stuffing your face with as much finger-ish food as you can stomach. It's a haul.

That's pretty much it. Here's the full list of participating businesses. Full details on that, and your other Thursday night events in your Lowdown below.
