This Sunday, we all gain an hour of sleep when daylight-saving time ends and we set our clocks back one hour. Which means, technically, we can start drinking at the Seminole Hard Rock Wine and Food Festival earlier.
Sample fare from 20 restaurants, including Martorano's, Bongo's, Sea Level, and China Grill, and enjoy tasting more than 300 wines.
Wines from all over the world will be represented, including Mumm Napa,
Georges DuBoeuf, LaCrema, Gloria Ferrer, Louis Jadot, and Cakebread, to
name a few (peruse a complete listing here).
festival runs from 1 to 5 p.m. VIP ticket holders get to waltz in at
noon for an extra hour of eating and drinking. In addition, the VIP
experience includes a special champagne reception hosted by celebrity
chef Steve Martorano. Then, Martorano, author of the cookbook Yo Cuz!, is going to make meatballs!
Tickets cost $45 for general admission, $85 for VIP. Purchase tickets at your local Walgreens or here.
Here's our tip of the day: After sampling more than 300 different wines, stay away from the blackjack tables. You'll thank us later.
