Friday, August 31
My fellow food friends, the day is nigh. Oh wait, I wasn't talking about the "Casual" Charlie Trotter and Friends Final Feast at Trotter's. That's sold-out (at $250 a pop) though they say there's a waiting list. Oh no. I'm talking about the blessed 31st annual Taste of Melrose Park! Get your sfingi (think doughnut holes), arancini, cannoli and fried bologna sangwiches around Village Hall (1000 N. 25th Ave. — and remember, that's Melrose Park, capisce?). Check out food photos from last year's TOMP on LTHForum.com. This Taste runs three days through Sunday.
