MADISON, NJ -What has long been called "Madison's largest cocktail party," The Taste of Madison experienced a packed house at The Park Avenue Club Monday night as local restaurants prepared food and wine distributors poured special wines for a crowd of hundreds. 

Accompanying the biggest sponsors of the evening, Gary's Wine and Marketplace in Madison, were small distilleries and local Madison wine purveyors who wowed the crowds with new and exciting micro brews, rums, scotches and whiskey.

Restaurants made small plate bites for guest to sample a "flavor" of what they offered on a larger scale in their restaurants and stores.
