Tickets on sale for city's first Dishcrawl

Fort Wayne's first Dishcrawl will start in downtown at 7 p.m. March 5 – and there are still plenty of tickets left for anyone who wants to try some unique or fine dining options offered at the four-restaurant event.

Think of Dischcrawl as a kind of pub crawl, says Hana Hawash, who organized the event (Dishcrawl calls her an “ambassador”). Each restaurant will have three food options to try, starting with an appetizer at the first restaurant, dinner at the middle two and dessert at the fourth.

“People are encouraged to get a drink and to talk to people, and it's 50 percent food, but it's also 50 percent networking and socializing and meeting people in your community,” Hawash says. “We're trying to get people involved in their community over food.”

The twist to the event is the restaurants involved are kept secret until right before the event, when Hawash will email everyone and tell where to meet. Each restaurant will be within a 10-minute walk from the other, and though it's starting downtown, Hawash has plans to move it to different areas of Fort Wayne, as she hopes to hold Dishcrawls a few times a year.

Tickets will be sold up to 24 hours before the event, and you can purchase them for $45 at discrawl.com/fortwayne.

Though the stops are secret (it keeps things more fun, Hawash says), she has posted a clue about one stop on her Dishcrawl Twitter account. Check out the pic.

Got any guesses?

I'll throw one out there: Sweet Violets Tea & Antiques, on West Wayne Street?
