Winter Park – Grab your cowboy hats and boots. It’s time for Cows ‘n Cabs.
One of the Orlando area’s most fun fundraisers, this annual charity gig will have you shoutin’ yee-haw! Restaurateur John Rivers of 4Rivers Smokehouse invites chefs and owners of other Central Florida restaurants. Together they set up shop in a tented expanse in the heart of Winter Park, Florida, and dole out tastes of whatever they’re cooking that night. Beer, wine and booze are poured freely.
Live music plays, fitting with the Western theme. A silent auction offers up deals on meals and other luxuries.
By night’s end, participants have full bellies and the year’s charity recipients have fuller coffers. in 2018, 100 percent of the proceed will go to After School All Stars and Elevate Orlando, both of which help local kids.
Tickets are $120, or $160 for VIP early access and special seating. Buy them here.
Here are some of the 25 or so restaurants donating their time and their grub to the upcoming food fest:
