No recipes today, friends! We had quite a time last weekend at the South Beach Wine and Food Festival — and I want to share it with you! I was there with Scott and Emily along with my parents and friend, Nola! We ate (A LOT), sipped (A LOT) and had a few celebrity sightings along the way! Check out the vibe :
The South Beach Wine and Food Festival, started as a one day wine tasting event back in 1997, but expanded rapidly after Lee Schrager took the helm and brought to life his vision of hosting the festival on South Beach, featuring wine seminars, a series of dinners and the introduction of the Grand Tasting Village and the BubbleQ.
We only attended the Grand Tasting, but there were tasting, sipping, and hobnobbing opportunities from South Beach to Ft. Lauderdale.
Later that night…. We had sushi at Blade in the world famous Fontainebleau Hotel. I took these shots using an 8 second exposure instead of using the flash. I think they give a sense of what the beautifully renovated space at the Fontainebleau is like…
If you were there, tell me ALL ABOUT IT! If you’re interested in going, I’m happy to answer any questions about the event itself, where to stay and other hot spots to visit on South Beach! Send me a shout out!
