Taste of Downtown Giveaway

Please note, this giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to entry #9!

The Annual Taste of San Diego Downtown is coming up.  This year’s event takes place on September 26, 2013 from 5:00-9:00 pm. Guests are able to walk around downtown and sample food from the more than 40+ restaurant and food spots participating. I’ve attended the last couple of years and it’s always a lot of fun.
