The 45th time seemed to be a charm for the Champaign Park District’s annual Taste of Champaign-Urbana event, held in Champaign’s West Side Park. If nothing else, the perfect weather was enough to call this event successful. At a glance, the list of participating food establishments seemed better, or at least, more considered. There were fewer places than last year (only 19 to last year’s 20-plus), two-thirds of which were locally owned, non-chain restaurants.
The 45th annual Taste of Champaign-Urbana was last weekend. Smile Politely’s Food Writers were there to taste.
