Our butterfly logo designed by Rebecca Heflin, is a symbol of resurrection, hope, joy, and new beginnings.  It is a symbol of rebirth, diversity and a transformation of change: meaning out with the old and in with the new.  Just like a caterpillar must go through stages of growth and development before it can become a beautiful butterfly, so must our neighborhood go through stages of growth and development to find its true purpose and get to a place of safety and beauty.

The Staten Island Advance’s Pamela Silvestri attended and had this to say about last year’s edition:

From the hot antipasto at Da Noi in Fort Wadsworth to rave-worthy pastrami on rye at Jimmy Steiny’s pub in St. George, North Shore restaurants turned out nibbles of their signature dishes on Sunday. For $10 a ticket, about 400 visitors bought themselves an afternoon of sampling by way of a “crawl” to 16 eateries.

The inaugural event was intended to capture new audiences to the Bay Street corridor and neighborhoods like Stapleton, St. George and Livingston.

“The idea is to get people to appreciate the restaurants down here,” said Bobby Digi, president of the North Shore Business Association, the group sponsoring the four-hour affair, which started at 1 p.m. Tickets were sold online and at participating restaurants.

“I’m very enthused…and hungry!” said Dr. Sherman Helber of West Brighton early in the afternoon. He planned to start his crawl at 120 Bay Cafe in St. George, tempted by a plate of fried calamari, ravioli, a jalapeno popper and a mac ‘n’ cheese ball.

 

Having sold out of tickets to last year’s crawl, it’s a good idea for you to get your 2014 North Shore Restaurant Crawl tickets now. They’re available now on Eventbrite
