Toni McCallum paused while sampling food from area restaurants at the Taste of Southfield event Tuesday night.
“I love mixing and mingling,” said the Southfield resident.
McCallum was echoing other members of the crowd of residents and office who workers, who said the event was a good chance to do some networking, have fun and learn new options for eating and entertaining in the city.
Cheryl White of Southfield said she had been invited to the event last year, and she “made sure” she came again. And Gail Carson, also of Southfield, liked what she saw as she glanced around the airy and sunlit atrium of the 2000 Town Center, where the event is held each year amidst plants and different levels.
“It’s beautiful,” she said. “I like the way it is set up. It’s a nice, warm atmosphere.”
Over at the Pizzeria Bigga station, Danny Simpson said Tuesday was the fourth time it had participated in the event.
“It’s a great event,” he said. “It gets bigger and better every year. Everyone enjoys our food.”
