A sunny spring day greeted the several hundred attendees of the recent Best of Town Brookhaven (formerly Taste of Town Brookhaven), an annual event held on the central green at the Town Brookhaven mixed-use development off Peachtree Road.

Eleven restaurants, in addition to Publix and Costco, set up booths on the lawn and served up everything from pizza and paella to cold beer and chili cheese fries to hungry ticket holders. Participating eateries included Bua Thai + Sushi, Olde Blind Dog Irish Pub, Hobnob Neighborhood Tavern, Tin Can Oyster Bar and Amore Cucina & Bar. Guests were also treated to the happening sounds of the 80ators, an ’80s tribute band, and posed for pics at the photo booth. Best of all, the festivities raised more than $3,500 for Bert’s Big Adventure, which provides free, fun-filled trips to Disney World and other year-round support for chronic and terminally ill children and their families.
