Staten Island, New York – Organizers of Forest Avenue Spring Stroll will highlight West Brighton’s vibrant dining options at an upcoming two-hour tasting event. The ticket gets body samples from the neighborhood restaurant and spirits scene in the hope that visitors will come back for more.

The entertainment and picnic itself is free and open to the public.

The owner of the automatic machine said the project has been delayed and will open the second or third week in July. Forest North Funeral Chapel made a home at 747 Forest Avenue.

The last space is used by the caterer, according to a worker on the premises, and is not open for a la carte service.
