Develop New Albany’s Broccoli Walk is August 12. What? Oops, sorry — it’s a Taco Walk.

I think broccoli should be next.

Maybe they’re on to something.

… It might seem that having more places where people can eat and drink would increase competition and steal away customers. Although that can be an issue at first, long-term the opposite is true.

I still think broccoli is getting the short end of the “signature” event, though tacos are nice, too. Here is the list of participating establishments from the event page at Fb.

Adrienne & Co. New Albany
Bella Roma Italiana Cuisine
Big Four Burger & Beer New Albany
Brooklyn and The Butcher
Café 157
The Exchange Pub & Kitchen
Floyd County Brewing Company
Gospel Bird
Hull & Highwater (at Gospel Bird)
Habana Blues Tapas Restaurant
La Tiendita on Market
NABC Café & Brewhouse
Seeds and Greens Natural Market and Deli
Taco Steve
River City Winery
Wicks Pizza Parlor

Hmm. On second thought, I believe the Confidentials will be dining at Israel’s Delicias de Mexico Gourmet instead.

How can he not be included on a taco walk?

Sighhhh … here’s the tout.
