Foodies enjoy Taste of Town Square’s sample selections…more than bite size
By Elsa Maxey
Billed as an event offering guests samples from some of Sugar Land Town Square’s most popular restaurants, about a dozen of them, those eats were mighty generous and enjoyed by foodies…you know those people with a refined interest in food and beverages and also those checking out new food experiences as a hobby. A quick glance at the square and you could not help but feel the enjoyment of the good company, beautiful weather and the live music…well, it helped make everything so much more festive…so Sugar Land! This took place on Saturday, Nov. 2, hosted by David Taylor Cadillac, benefitting the Fort Bend Junior Service League, which dedicates its work to providing volunteer services, leadership and philanthropy enriching Fort Bend.
Casually dining “al fresco,” there were specialty vegetarian and meat subs considered extraordinary food and they came from a sandwich shop on the square close-by and worth checking out. A snake-y line to a sports grill’s samples was well worth the small wait for the liberal helpings of chicken wings and strips, spicy and not. The pizza and waffles, out of this world in more ways than one, from Jupiter it seems like, was popular, too. You may want to ask Jessica and Jim Kij what they had as both were a fun couple spotted having a grand time. Erica Eiseline was on hand, too, at the cupcake booth handing out the treats and calling attention to the anchor businesses that started in Sugar Land Town Square, now celebrating its 10th birthday.
During this year’s annual event, the restaurants competed for “Sugar Land Town Square’s Best Dish,” awarded by a panel of celebrity judges, including Sugar Land city councilmember Amy Mitchell and Gary Gaetti, manager of the Sugar Land Skeeters. So guess who got the most votes for the “People’s Choice Award?” Congratulations, Jupiter Pizza & Waffle Co., which won the judge’s award – “Best Dish” and the People’s Choice for its chicken and waffles.
About to take place is another Junior Service League event jointly presented by Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 8 and 9th – the 2013 Sugar Plum Market at the Stafford Centre, 10505 Cash Road, with 115 vendors. General admission is $10 for each day or $15 for both days and may be paid at the door.a
