Put on your walking shoes and come hungry: The fourth annual Coral Gables Wine and Food Festival gets under way tonight, from 7:00 to 9:00. The area between Ponce de Leon Boulevard and Galiano Street will show why its nickname is restaurant row by hosting more than 25 booths of enticing food from world-class dining destinations, and select vintage wines from vineyards around the world. And unlike other local culinary fests, youre guaranteed to get a taste.
We cap tickets so people arent standing in line for food and wine, says festival director Paula Ettline. The event, presented by the Miccosukee Tribe of Indians of Florida, benefits the American Lung Association of Florida-South Area (ALAFSA) and pulmonary research at the UM Miller School of Medicine. A pre-festival VIP reception from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. features fine wine, hors doeuvre, a fancy gift bag, and street festival admission.
Thu., March 29, 7-9 p.m.
