Yesterday, the hordes invaded Miami Beach for 96 hours of drinking, eating, and schmoozing their way across the sand. The South Beach Wine & Food Festival (SoBeWFF) has finally arrived. And Short Order will be there to clue you in on the craziest, drunkest, most gluttonous moments of the weekend.
Past years have seen Paula Deen riding Robert Irvine like a horse, Anthony Bourdain planting an undercover operative in the crowd, and Debi Mazar battling security. These are moments you don't want to miss. Luckily, if you can't attend the festival or are too shitfaced to pay attention, you can follow Short Order for a real-time feed of all things interesting.
Whatever your social media pleasure -- Short Order is on it.
Don't be afraid to say hello if you spot one of the Short Order crew out and about.
Also, if you're at the festival and happen to see Bobby Flay fall face-first in some foie gras, be sure to tag us in the pic. Our hashtag is #shortordermiami, and the official South Beach Wine & Food Festival hashtag is #SOBEWFF.
Finally, if you're hitting up the Grand Tasting Village, Short Order is helping make the madness even more interactive. Attendees will be able to vote for their favorite dishes via text -- so remember which ones you liked best.
See you out there, fellow foodies.
