First, we survived the polar vortex. Then we suffered through an unseasonably wet spring. And only now is Mother Nature heeding our desperate pleas for warmth.

The truth is, metro Detroit’s bars and restaurants have been heating up and keeping it cool all year.

Welcome to A Taste of Summer in the D, Metro Times’ latest food-fueled, drink-drenched event. Per usual with MT events, folks can taste a little bit of everything with unlimited tastings and a few boozy delights. Beans & Cornbread, Brass Rail Pizza Bar, Grand Trunk Pub, Farm Field Table, Jim Brady’s, Otus Supply, Detroit BBQ Company, Checker Bar, and Treat Dreams are among the eateries offering up summer-inspired fare made for feasting.

Event begins at 6 p.m. on Thursday, June 27 at the Garden Theater, 3929 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-832-0888; Tickets start at $20.
