3. Eat. Drink. Ride Food Tour 

Struggling with where to eat dinner is a tough process. So, why not try a bite or two at a handful of locations for your meal? That’s a really simple way of describing how much fun the Eat. Drink. Ride Food Tour is.

You hop on a party bus at Brookwood Mall and visit five local restaurants to try their signature dish and cocktails. It’s a four-hour tour.  Some establishments give you an appetizer-size sampling, but others fill up your plate.  This dinner dance fest on wheels will cost you $90, which is about what you’d pay for one fine dining meal and drinks.
