Did you make a New Year's resolution to eat healthy-more fresh foods?
In Yuma, Arizona it is all about authentic border fare and "fresh from the field" produce during the "Savor Yuma" tour.
The tours treat diners to a mystery culinary quest, much like a progressive dinner with three stops. Leave the driving to the motor coach designated driver.
You will start off your tour with appetizers at the first stop. Then comes the fresh soup or salad at the second and the main course at the third stop. Each diner can enjoy two specialty "adult" drinks along the way and a sweet treat tops the evening.
This is the fourth year for the tour and the first one kicks off Jan. 5. at 5 p.m., but the available dates continue into April. The tour departs from the Yuma Heritage Center (old city hall) at 180 W. 1st Street.
Featured restaurants include A&R Grill, Garden Cafe, Market Grill Steak & Seafood, Main Street Cafe, The Press, The Patio at The Hills, River City Grill, Tina's Cocina and Yuma Landing.Savor Yuma tours are scheduled for Jan. 5 and 19, Feb. 9 and 16. March 3 and 22 and April 7. The cost of $55 per person includes transportation, dinner and two "adult beverages."
