Cupcakes were the most popular items from the 2011 Taste of the Town.

Update October 10th, 2012: Like every year, Taste of the Town was a great success. 

Thousands showed up to taste the goods from area restaurants, drink some good beer and wine, and of course to be seen. Below is a round up of last night that we've pulled in some tweets and local media stories about the 29th annual foodie and social event of the year.
