Savor the Hill Country at food and drink showcase
Connie McClennan was quick to point out the Roman numeral III at the end of this year’s Savor the Hill Country poster.
“You have history because it’s been so successful,” the event coordinator said.
Indeed. This year’s event — slated for 5-8 p.m. Sunday, January 26, at the Science Mill, 101 E. Lady Bird Lane in Johnson City — has more businesses participating than ever before, including 12 restaurants and caterers, two distilleries, four breweries, and 12 wineries. All are members of the Johnson City Chamber of Commerce, which hosts Savor the Hill Country as a chamber fundraiser. A silent auction at the event also helps raise money.
Advance tickets are $60 and can be purchased at the Johnson City Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center, 100 E. Main St., or Pecan Street Brewing, 106 E. Pecan Drive.
Bought at the door, tickets are $70.
The Wilson String Band will provide the entertainment.
“They are awesome,” McClennan said. “We feature them every year.”
McClennan recommends people not wait to get tickets.
“It’s popular; it sold out last year,” she said. “We had more than 300 people.”
They come for the quality hand-prepared food and drinks, which are carefully chosen to reflect the best of what the area has to offer. Businesses involved often serve signature dishes or cook new creations specifically for Savor the Hill Country.
“This is the time to showcase,” McClennan said.
