Birmingham is a town known for its dining scene, but even Birmingham hasn't seen what's coming to town this month.
Dishcrawl comes to Birmingham on April 23, giving area diners the chance to sample food and drinks from four Birmingham eateries all in one night.
Similar to a bar or pub crawl, dishcrawl aims "to provide you with a premiere culinary social experience by bringing together neighborhood restaurants, local chefs, regional food producers and fellow food enthusiasts."
Behind the project is Dishcrawl, a roving "food tour" company that emerged out of California in 2010. Owner Tracy Lee, a San Jose resident, now conducts "dishcrawls" in more than 100 cities across the U.S. and Canada, according to the East Bay Express.
How does the dishcrawl work? Participants sign up at www.dishcrawl.com/detroit, and then will be emailed the location of the meet-up location 48 hours before the event.
For $45 per person, participants will then hit up four Birmingham eateries, all of which will remain secret until the day of the event. Those craving more information can follow @DishcrawlDet on Twitter for hints and clues.
On Monday, the company was looking for Birmingham's best April Fool's jokes on Twitter. "Let me know and you'll get something special that you can use towards the Dishcrawl in Birmingham!"
Birmingham isn't the first Michigan city for Dishcrawl. The company first hosted a dishcrawl in Royal Oak in March and is back for seconds on April 10. Tickets for the Royal Oak event are also available on the Dishcrawl website.
Have questions? Dishcrawls are run by Dishcrawl Ambassadors, and in Birmingham, that's Brittany Swineford, who's available for questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
