Briefs: Tierra Verde nibbles can be eaten in or out



Taste To Go is bucking local restaurant trends and the sluggish economy with the recent expansion of the wine, cheese and sandwich shop to allow for indoor seating. The shop now accommodates people who want to dine in, as well as those who prefer a deck that overlooks Pass-a-Grille Channel and the Gulf of Mexico.
