2011 Taste of the Beach on the Outer Banks

Red Sky at the Taste of the Beach OBXThe 2011 Taste of the Beach Expo on the Outer Banks just past last weekend and Red Sky Café was front and center in all the festivities. We participated in both the Duck Tapas Crawl with the Blue Point and Roadside Grill, and then went over to the Expo hosted by Pamlico Jacks. Both events were fantastic and we had a great time!

Highlights From Taste Of The Beach

Warning! Do not watch while hungry. This video will make you drool!

The Taste of the Beach is done for another year, and it was a HUGE success. Chef Wes Stepp and the staff of the Red Sky Cafe were a big hit for the Duck Tapas Crawl on Friday. The unexpected rain didn’t slow anyone down either. Plenty of people came in to try the fantastic fare. And by the time they made it to the last stop, the guests were crawling after being stuffed with so much great food.

On Sunday, at the Nags Head TOB Expo, many of the local Outer Banks restaurants were on display. The food was amazing, and everyone had a great time. The smell of delicious food was overwhelming, and anyone who went away hungry only had themselves to blame. The Red Sky booth kept cooking fresh “Duck Village Salads” with local Wanchese shrimp, along with seared, rare Yellowfin Tuna and seaweed salad. All of the guests loved it!

If you missed the Tapas Crawl in Duck or the Expo in Nags Head, you can still have a great meal at the Red Sky Cafe in Duck. But next year, make sure you take part in the Taste of the Beach. Its an experience you won’t want to miss again!

That’s just to name a few. And it’s not just today; the event runs through Sunday, March 14th.

Why would anyone settle for less?

However, just because you can’t do the tapas crawl, doesn’t mean you need to miss out on the great food made by Chef Wes at the Red Sky Café. You can always stop in for lunch or dinner.

This year there are over 60 different events to choose from, so there is definitely something for everyone. Check out the Taste of the Beach schedule for all of the events.
