Second annual Taste of Woodstock benefits film fest

This Wednesday, Woodstock's eateries will be putting their best food forward at the second annual Taste of Woodstock. 

The event kicks off at 6 p.m. with a wine tasting at the Film Center on Rock City Road. There, participants can pick up a wristband and a map of over 20 participating restaurants and other well-loved members of the Woodstock food scene who will be offering tastings all over town. Restaurants hailing from beyond downtown Woodstock -- like the Red Onion in Saugerties, or Kingston's Blue Mountain Bistro to Go -- will be setting up shop at several venues in town. 

Wristbands, which will buy access to all of the tastings, are $75 through May 13, or $85 on the day of the event -- pricey, but with proceeds going to benefit the Woodstock Film Festival and Hudson Valley Film Commission, it's for a good cause. 

Among the vendors who will be offering tastings are the event are Blue Mountain Bistro To Go, Black-Eyed Suzie's, Bread Alone, Catskill Mountain Pizza Company, Cucina, The Emerson, Garden Cafe, Green Palate, Landau Grill, Little Apple, Maria's Bazar, Mountain Gate, New World Home Cooking, Oriole 9, Red Onion, Rick's Wood Fired Pizza, Sunflower Natural Foods, the Woodstock Emporium, Woodstock Wine and Liquors, Yum Yum Noodle Bar, Binnewater Ice Co. and Keegan Ales.
