Tickets cost only $15 for adults and $8 for kids 10 and under and each ticket gets you a taste at almost every Century Square restaurant. Yes, it’s $15 for a center full of dining opportunities.

On the big day, bring your phone and present your pass to the staff at each restaurant you stop at. Yes, you can visit all of them if that’s what you want. In fact, it’s encouraged. Eat and drink to to your heart’s delight. Hawaiian Ahi Chicken, Frozen Margaritas, Cheesburger Shalaylee’s, Organic Juices or Brisket Tacos. . . the list is nearly endless. These Century Square restaurants are pulling out all the stops, trying to give everyone a taste of their best.

“Century Square has become the epicenter for culinary talent in Bryan-College Station, attracting some of the city’s finest restaurants and chefs,” says Shannon Bedinger, senior vice president of marketing and communications at Midway. “We invite all residents who love good food and drinks to join us to sample the fare, enjoy The Green and support the Brazos Valley Food Bank.”

Music and endless noshing opportunities? What more could you want?
