Beautiful weather accompanied the 2015 Taste of Mystic in Mystic Connecticut which ran June 12, 13 & 14. Crowds that turned out for the event had a chance to sample menu items from about 30 area restaurants. Seafood was a popular choice such as clams shucked on the spot when customers made their purchases at the “HARBOUR HOUSE at the INN AT MYSTIC”, as well as, Lobster Mac prepared by the “Portuguese Fisherman”. Soup lovers were drawn to offerings of Lobster Bisque and New England – of course – Clam Chowder.
The Taste of Mystic was set up in a parking lot outside the Olde Mistick Village shops with a large tent of picnic tables adjacent to a semi-circle of food booths. At the far end of the tent was a stage where a variety of live bands performed. On Sunday afternoon, an appreciative audience danced to songs of Santana such as “Black Magic Woman”. There was also plenty of shade to be found at nearby benches.
WFSB Channel 3 was a major sponsor of the event. Thanks to some proceeds from the Taste of Mystic, the station had been presented earlier with a $5,000 donation check to benefit the Channel 3 Kid’s Camp. Admission was free and food tickets were $1 a piece.
