Aniruddh Gala wants to provide escapades of gastronomic delight for interested Ann Arbor denizens and visitors. By the Sidewalk, Gala’s new business venture, will offer two-and-a-half to three-hour walking tours of one to two miles that include information about Ann Arbor history, architecture and culture (as well as trivia) and stops at various Ann Arbor eateries for sampling. Cost is $47 for an all-inclusive tour, capped at 16 people. Tours now cover Kerrytown and downtown mid-day on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, but Gala hopes to expand to Tuesdays through Thursdays and include additonal locations. Gala doesn’t reveal the itinerary in advance, hoping to provide moments of surprise and discovery even for weathered Ann Arborites.

Registration for By the Sidewalk food tours happens at bythesidewalk.com or by phone, 734-548-9532.
