It’s time to loosen those belts and head downtown for the annual Taste, where everyone can sample the best that Ellicottville’s fine restaurants have to offer as they set up “Cafe Style” on the streets. You can expect to indulge in returning fan favorites such as Madigan’s famous wings smothered in Grace’s house sauce, as well as some new items on the scene, including unique pizza options from Ellicottville’s recently opened restaurant, Monroe Street Brick & Brew.  Tickets are just $1 each with items ranging between $1-$4. Purchase tickets at the centrally located ticket booth during the event, which takes place from noon-4pm both days. 

 

 

TUSCAN MOON - A TRIBUTE TO MICHAEL KERNS SR.

SATURDAY, AUGUST 27 | 6:00 PM - 10:00 PM

JOHN HARVARD’S CABANA BAR & POOL COMPLEX

HOLIDAY VALLEY RESORT

Sponsored by the Rotary Club of Ellicottville, this is the “Must Attend” dinner party in Ellicottville! The party starts with delicious hors d’ oeuvres from Katy’s Café & Katy’s Fly-In, The Gin Mill, 

Monroe Street Brick & Brew, and Villaggio, served by volunteer students from Ellicottville Central School.  Entertainment this year is ladies favorite, Michael Nugent, singing timeless hits by the greats such as Michael Buble, Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin, Tony Bennett, and more! 

 

Supported by both Sysco and U.S. Foods, local chefs from 16 different restaurants will serve up a signature dish from their individual stations.  Eat as much as you want from the selection of Italian favorites - a great antipasta table and pasta station from Ilio DiPaolo’s; Tip’s Up; Slopeside and Villaggio will both offer multiple pastas, sauces, sausage and meatballs; a seafood medley from John Harvard’s, and seafood lasagna from Meyer’s Steakhouse, just to name a few.  Vegetarian and gluten free diners will have choices as well.  The feature of the event is the dessert table, where Watson’s Chocolates surround the extra special cakes, cookies and tarts created by chef Tom Kneeland.  An extensive silent auction and short live auction provide some great bargains for all who attend.

 

Beyond the food and the company, this annual fundraiser supports the many local projects and individuals in need of support through Family Support for Ellicottville.  Better yet is while you are helping a great cause, your ticket donation is tax deductible.  Tickets are $65 per person and are available in many local outlets (Ellicottville Chamber of Commerce, E-Ville Spirits, The Gin Mill and Katy’s Cafe) or you can order over the phone (credit cards accepted) by calling Kegs at 716-699-8758. Remember that this is Ellicottville so the dress is always casual.  

 

 

MONDAY SHOP RIDES 

WITH BIKE AND BEAN

MEET / RIDE OUT OF 

DOWNTOWN ELLICOTTVILLE

6:00 PM

Get your two-wheeled machine out on the trails with Dennis and crew.  These intermediate rides last approximately two hours. (They are NOT “Hammer” rides, meaning you do not need to be an expert rider to join in.) Riders stop and regroup at all intersections so no one is left behind.  What you’ll need: a proper working mountain bike, helmet, water, and spare inner tube.  Riders should have some experience with singletrack and be able to ride up and down hills. This is a great way to meet new riders, get some pointers and learn the fabulous trail system we have here in E-Town.  Questions?  Call the shop at 716-699-BIKE (2453) or email dennis@ellicottvillebikeshop.com
