“The Woodlands area offers a multitude of restaurants and fine dining options, but it can be hard to give them all a chance when you’ve already picked your favorites,” J.J. Hollie, president of The Chamber, said. “If you’re ready to try something new and learn about other establishments in the area, then you don’t want to miss Taste of the Town on January 17.”

The Chamber has hosted Taste of the Town since 1985, with the first event held on the old ice rink in the Wharf Shopping Mall, now Grogan’s Mill Village Center.
