S.D. Bay Wine and Food Festival: As it is the largest of all food and wine festivals in Southern California, we think you should be in town for this one. The crowd of about 10,000 food and wine lovers will get to indulge in their favorite past time sampling eats from 70 of the city’s finest chefs and washing it all down with 800 different wines on display. Cooking and wine tasting demonstrations will be taught by celebrity chefs (keep your eyes peeled for Brian Malarkey and Sam Zien) and at the end of all the excitement one chef will be dubbed the champ of and receive $50,000.
Deets: The festival goes from November 17th to the 21st. The Grand Event is held on Embarcadero Marina Park North. Purchasing tickets can be tricky. First you need to decide which day you’re going or if you want to buy a “Grape Escape” package for the entire five days and, of course there is always the “Very Important Person” option. You should note there are different events going on on different days so make sure you check out which ones tickle you taste buds.
