Signature dishes at ‘Taste of Peninsula’ on Nov. 7

PORT ANGELES — Food lovers can nibble on exciting new dishes, bid on getaway trips and enjoy live music (and have plenty of time to later attend the symphony) at the third annual “A Taste of the Peninsula.”

Tickets are on sale now for the event at the Elks Naval Lodge, 131 E. First St., in downtown Port Angeles, from 5 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 7.

You can browse the silent auction items while you eat, or get a table with friends, plus taste premium vintages from the Peninsula’s wineries and soak up music by the Taste of Jazz Quintet.

The event is also timed so you can attend the Port Angeles’ Symphony concert that evening.

The concert — “Song and Dances with Alex Dugdale” — begins in the Port Angeles High School Auditorium at 7:30 p.m.
