    Looking to treat your taste buds this weekend? Then, in terms of location, San Diego’s College Area may be your best bet as nearly two dozen restaurants take part in the College Area Taste event this Sunday.

    From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., foodies can take a self-guided walking tour of the College Area and hit up 22 local restaurants providing scrumptious samplings, from entrees and refreshments to desserts.

    The budding bistros and quaint cafes participating in the event include Effins Pub & Grill, Living Room Café, Ranchwood BBQ, Smashburger, Woodstock’s Pizza, Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop, Pita Pit, Tea Station and Yogurtland, among many, many others.

    If bought in advance, tickets to the tasty tour cost $25 per person. They go up to $30 on the day of the event.

    Tickets can be purchased online here, or at many of the participating eateries through Friday, including: Bangkok Poco on College Avenue; Bistro Sixty on El Cajon Boulevard; Bridges on Art Street; Cold Stone Creamery on El Cajon Boulevard; Effins Pub & Grill on El Cajon Boulevard; Fluffy Duffy's Snow Cream on El Cajon Boulevard; L&L Hawaiian BBQ on El Cajon Boulevard.

    They can also be purchased at the College Area BID office located at 4704 College Ave. All funds raised through this event will benefit the College Area Business District.

    By the way, if you find yourself slipping into a little bit of a food coma while exploring the restaurants, attendees can hop on the green and orange Old Town Trolley, which will be giving free lifts between culinary destinations.

    Bon appetit!
