Since early this morning, restaurant staffers and festival workers have been setting up for Las Olas Wine & Food festival that gets going tonight just after 7 p.m., presented by Premier Beverage and benefiting the
American Lung Association.
The event will feature more than 70 restaurants and 40
wine / beer tables, plus that infamous New Times cupcake battle we've
been writing about for the past few weeks.
The photo is a quick pic from our How-To photographer, Christina Mendenhall, who's combing the festival grounds as chefs and staff ready for the event. The photo above is a section of the Cheese Culture's (literal) cheese cake: not just a decoration, but a display of what the shop is serving tonight.
Revisit the blog over the weekend for announcements of cupcake battle winners as well as slideshows of the event. In the meantime, it's too late to purchase tickets online, but you can learn more about festival logistics and $100 a pop tickets here. It's all for a good cause.
