Save your appetite, get out your best comfy-meets-snazzy night-out outfit, and text your food-loving friends: Taste is back—and more delicious than ever—and tickets are on sale now. It’s the biggest food event of the year here at Boston magazine, an annual celebration of our restaurant-focused November issue, and we cannot wait to party with you. It’s the best excuse to get out of the house on a Monday night—this coming Monday, October 30, by the way! Consider it your pre-Halloween appetizer.

So, what’s in store when you join us at Taste, now in its 13th year? Taking place at the lovely Artists for Humanity EpiCenter in South Boston, the event will be jam-packed with the city’s best food and drink. Around two dozen local restaurants—many featured in our brand-new Top 50 Restaurants list—will be onsite serving up tasty treats, both sweet and savory. Attendees include Sarma, Bar Vlaha, Pammy’s, Mida, Neptune Oyster, Row 34, Tonino, and more. We don’t want to give too much away with regards to what they’ll be serving, and dishes are subject to change, but here are a few things that have caught our eye on the potential menu so far: caviar, 100-day-aged prime ribeye, mini wagyu pastrami sandwiches, lobster rolls, braised pork belly bao, lumache Bolognese, mini cones of gelato…ok, that was more than a few, but we couldn’t help ourselves. But you’ll have to come Monday to find out the rest!

There’ll be plenty to drink, too, and your entry fee includes three complimentary drink tickets (note: this event is 21+). Be on the lookout for a lounge, photo experience, and special cocktail from London-based gin distillery Sipsmith; a Dos Hombres bar with a signature margarita; and an Unshackled Wine bar. Also, Railstop Restaurant & Bar and Zacapa Rum will be bringing the brunch vibes to nighttime with a bloody mary bar and espresso martini respectively. (Did someone say espresso martini?)

Also on tap: live entertainment and other surprises. And if you spring for a VIP ticket, and you’ll get first dibs on everything with entry an hour earlier than general admission. See you there!

$85-$125, Monday, October 30, 5:30 p.m. – 9 p.m., Artists for Humanity EpiCenter, 100 W. 2nd St., South Boston,
