The "Taste of Lawrence" fall mixer will be held as scheduled Wednesday evening, but in a new location, Hank Booth said Wednesday afternoon.

La Parilla employee Colin Pilant goes over the various forms of salsa available to Melody Buchholz, Eudora, during the Taste of Lawrence event Wednesday. Wednesday’s rain prompted organizers to move the event, which features various foods from local vendors, to the Lawrence Holidome, 200 McDonald Drive.

Ah, The Mixer. Reminds me of a Dead Milkmen song...

The man said, "Keep your hands and arms inside The Mixer at all times." But Bill, Jr. he was a DAREDEVIL!!!

For the love of GOD.. and the safety of those involved.... MOVE IT TO THE HOLIDOME. Why not? No one will come out into a soggy mess.

Okay, fine, Chamber of Commerce. But just remember that when you hear thunder, the lightening can strike as far as ten miles away. I guess your members arent' that important to you.

Oops, "Taste of Lawrence" got me again this year. I always think it refers to a local restaurant showcase (open to the public) where you can try different foods, like the ones that almost every other city with a significant restaurant scene has.

I believe it is completely open to the public...either that or I have just crashed the party multiple years without even knowing it! I believe that educators are simply entitled to discounted tickets.

The years I've been have included a large number of local vendors and was a great chance to sample new and different food. Even without the discount, we've always had a good time and thought it was worth the price of admission. Couldn't go this year, though.

If you're free tonight, it's probably worth looking into!
