Tater Tot Trot hits Southport corridor on Saturday

SHARE Tater Tot Trot hits Southport corridor on Saturday

To some, tater tots recall days of lunch in the school cafeteria. To others, they’re the world’s most perfect food. We’re guessing the creators of this Saturday’s Tater Tot Trot are in the latter group. The third annual event (theme: “Let Fried Tots Shine”) will include visits to four tot purveyors along the Southport corridor — including 2008 Golden Tater Award winner Newport Bar & Grill. If you think you’re an expert on crispy potato goodness, well, you shouldn’t be anywhere else. The schedule:

4 p.m.: Schoolyard Tavern

5 p.m.: Southport Lanes

6 p.m.: Justin’s

7 p.m.: Newport Bar & Grill
