MILWAUKEE, Wis. (January 28, 2016)—Taste & Toast, the highly coveted happy hour event coordinated by Milwaukee Downtown, BID #21, will stir up restaurants, bars and lounges Feb. 29 through March 4.

“Last year was our first Taste & Toast, and it was wildly successful,” said Beth Weirick, CEO of Milwaukee Downtown, BID #21. “We not only had diners from the downtown area, but we also had a large amount of customers from the greater Milwaukee area who were able to experience our fabulous offerings.”
As an extra incentive for participating in Taste & Toast, Milwaukee Downtown will award $325 in dining gift certificates to two lucky patrons. To enter, diners will be encouraged to complete the Taste & Toast survey at www.milwaukeedowntown.com. At the conclusion of the event, a random drawing will select two lucky winners.
Last year’s Taste & Toast attracted over 8,000 diners, many of who experienced a restaurant for the first time. In 2015, 55 percent of all Taste & Toast participants indicated that they were first-time diners at a participating establishment. Over 90 percent of diners also rated the food service and environment as either excellent or good.
Menus of Taste & Toast participants will be posted at www.milwaukeedowntown.com in mid-February. Taste & Toast is a prelude to Downtown Dining Week 2016, which will take place June 2 – 9.
