Sizzling grills, deep friers and kegs of beer took over Main Avenue last Sunday during the ever popular Taste of Durango. For four straight hours, food fans of all ages ate and drank their way from tent to tent, sampling fare from Durangos finest establishments. This year, the Taste raised more than $10,000 for Manna Soup Kitchen. Heres a look:
