Update January 2021: We will be putting a pause on any community events including our popular “Tasting For Tails” event due to Covid-19 restrictions for the near future. We hope to be able to resume our events soon. ~ Be safe everyone!

What is Tasting for Tails?

Tasting for Tails, previously called Taste of the East Bay, is a fundraiser for the foodie in all of us! This local food driven event is hosted at the beautiful and historic Hope & Main in Warren, RI, a place where food and community combine.

Tasting for Tails features tasting tables from some of the best culinary establishments throughout the state of Rhode Island! Each tasting table is expertly paired by Grapes & Grains with a wine, spirit or craft beer that brings out the best of each bite.

Will the proceeds help the animals?

Yes! All proceeds from Tasting for Tails will benefit the animals at the Rhode Island SPCA as well as help fund its critical community programs and services. The Rhode Island SPCA is a 501 (c) 3 not-for-profit animal welfare organization that receives no local or federal funding and relies on community support from friends and businesses. Fundraising events such as this help us care for the thousands of animals that we assist every year.
