April 26, 2012 SAVANNAH, GA -- May 10, the 11th Annual Taste of Downtown Business Connection will blend the ever-important function of networking with one of the best parts of living in Savannah — the food. Against the picturesque backdrop of Johnson Square, guests can delight in phenomenal Coastal cuisine from 40+ of Savannah’s most talented member chefs, caterers and restaurants, while enjoying beverages, shaking hands with other professionals and distributing business cards.

Presented by Bank of America, Taste of Downtown is one of the most anticipated and well-attended Business Connections of the year, and we invite you to join us. Nine hundred Chamber members and guests attended last year’s Taste of Downtown. So, you don’t want to miss this annual favorite.

If all goes according to plan, Taste of Downtown will be in Johnson Square from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m.; but if the weather is less cooperative, the Savannah Civic Center is on standby as a backup location. No R.S.V.P. is required, but please note that this is a private event open to Chamber members and their guests. Admission is $10 for Chamber members and $25 for member guests. Don’t forget that all employees of Savannah Area Chamber member companies may attend our Business Connections for the member rate. Complimentary parking will be offered in the Bryan Street Parking Garage from 5 – 8 p.m. Please write the word “Taste” on the back of your ticket to redeem.
