Preparations are already underway for one of the food-enthusiasts of the South End’s biggest events: Taste of the South End.

The large-scale event is an annual fundraiser for the AIDS Action Committee of Massachusetts. This year’s event, to be held on March 5, 2013, at the Cyclorama at the Boston Center for the Arts, will feature 43 different South End restuarants and includes food, wine, beer, cocktails, prizes and more. 

Expect to see South End favorites like Myers & Chang, Hamersly’s Bistro, Tremont 647, Aquitaine, B&G Oysters and other neighborhood favorites preparing unlimited food and wine samples. For your ticket price of $ 100, you get unlimited food and wine from the restaurants, who all set up right there on scene. 

Organizer Cathy Kujala said the event, which enters its 8th year in 2013, draws a crowd of about 700 people each year.
