Its a new way to discover your food neighborhood! Get to know friends over an exciting night through four restaurants you never knew existed. Its delicious and fun!
And when I saw last month’s San Jose pitch:
Dishcrawl is kickin it up a knotch by taking you on a tour of the luxurious and elegant hotel that is the Fairmont San Jose. What could be in store here? Well only the best. Where well be leading our adventure is a mystery but not so much that you dont have a clue! Join us to taste the awesomeness that the Fairmont San Jose has. You will be sad if you dont.
I went ahead and purchased two tickets, as I didn’t want to be sad.
Boy, the folks at Dishcrawl are good with words, as shown in their last-minute preview message:
From Near and Far, the travel to Downtown San Jose this Tuesday eve is worth it for a Dishcrawl that’s been whispered into the hearts of folks craving elegance, sexiness, and an opportunity to experience it all at the Fairmont San Jose.
We’ll be waltzing through the elegance of The Fountain where a trio of delights will be prepared, relaxing in The Lounge with some exquisite sushi bites, enjoying The Pagoda’s hip music vibe, and admiring the luxurious sweets littered throughout three elegant suites. Chef Daniel, Fernando, and many others are ready at your service. Can you taste the deliciousness now?
Yes, I can taste it! Let’s get to the pictures!
Wifey and I were very happy to have such a trustworthy babysitter.
And also quite happy to check out Dishcrawl.
Tracy is the person who started it all, and the Dishcrawl blog goes back to February of last year. But Dishcrawl seems to really be picking up major steam in recent months.
