SIMSBURY, Conn. (WTNH) — Thursday will be a night of local restaurants and specialty drink vendors in Simsbury — and it’s all for a good cause.

A Taste in Simsbury will return for its 13th year. The sold-out event will highlight 24 restaurants and 14 drink vendors.

The event is a way to feature local restaurants, while also raising money to promote them.
