Nothing satiates an indecisive appetite like having a little taste of everything. And the 21st Annual Taste of Newport provides just that and much, much more (they have booze and music, too!). Featuring food from 35 local restaurants, beverages from 15 different California wineries, frosty brews, tasty cocktails, live cooking demonstrations and entertainment by such, um, amazing musical acts as Sugar Ray, Train and American Idols David Cook, this three-day celebration has a little something for everyone. Plusicing on the cakethe parking is free, so even cheapskates have no excuse to miss it.
