ST. LOUIS, MO (KMOX)-- At the 11th annual South Grand Dine-Around, the hardest part of the evening will be choosing what to eat. The annual  restaurant crawl on Thursday, May 16, provides patrons with five tickets to use at participating restaurants.

The South Grand neighborhood offers the food of 14 different nations and ethnicities, all within a five-block area.

"Let's see, we have Italy, the Philippines, Japan, China, Vietnam, Brazil, Lebanon, Persia, Turkey..." explains Rachel Witt of  the South Grand Cultural Alliance. "We have 24 businesses participating and 14 countries represented."

Witt says the Dine-Around gives new and regular visitors to South Grand a chance to try something they don't normally eat.

"Whether you're a conservative eater or an adventurous one, this is an amazing event," she says. "And with those five tickets, you can mix and match however you'd like and use them for small plates, desserts, cocktails or beverages."

Tickets can be purchased online for $30 or day-of for $35 in Ritz Park next to Mangia Italiano. Free parking is available in the South Grand lot behind Commerce Bank at 3500 Hartford.
