Build-your-own meal for two, while supporting a variety of local restaurants, during the latest installment of Taste of Tosa, a drive-thru style dining experience during which participants choose an appetizer, main course, dessert and beverages created by a variety of local restaurants and pick them up at one easy, central location.

The upcoming event, which is slated for Saturday, Jan. 9 (with pick-up between 5 and 7:15 p.m.), offers participants options from spots including Black Twig Bakery, Buckatabon, Cafe Hollander, Draft & Vessel, Firefly Tosa, Loup, The Ruby Tap and Tabal Chocolate

Dinner packages, which feed two, are $70 or $85 with beverages; each package includes appetizers, an entree and dessert.

To place your order online, visit the Tosa Village shopping page. Choose a package (with or without optional beverages), pick your course options, and then choose your pickup time at check-out. On the day of the event, simply pull up to the curb at Firefly Tosa, 7754 Harwood Ave. to pick up your hot meal. 


A portion of ticket sales will be donated to the Tosa Cares food pantry.

Lori is an avid cook whose accrual of condiments and spices is rivaled only by her cookbook collection. Her passion for the culinary industry was birthed while balancing A&W root beer mugs as a teenage carhop, fed by insatiable curiosity and fueled by the people whose stories entwine with each and every dish. She’s had the privilege of chronicling these tales via numerous media, including OnMilwaukee and in her book “Milwaukee Food.” Her work has garnered journalism awards from entities including the Milwaukee Press Club. 

When she’s not eating, photographing food, writing or recording the FoodCrush podcast, you’ll find Lori seeking out adventures with her husband Paul, traveling, cooking, reading, learning, snuggling with her cats and looking for ways to make a difference.
