South Beach Wine & Food Festival

South Beach Wine & Food Festival Announces 2013 Food Truck Lineup

Now that Art Basel is over, it's time to start focusing on the imminent arrival of the South Beach Wine and Food Festival, which takes over our fair city February 21-24, 2013.

One of our favorite events last year was Trucks on the Beach, hosted by Travel Channel's Andrew Zimmern. Last year's official closing event was filled with energy, music, and food as food trucks parked on the sands of SoBe and served sliders, tots, and tacos for thousands of festival goers who traded in their heels for flip flops.

This year, the event has been moved to the mainland and renamed Diet Pepsi Presents Trucks on Midtown Tracks Hosted by Andrew Zimmern. Trucks, held Sunday, February 24, 2013 from 3 to 6 p.m., has Zimmern hosting the festivities again. This time, however, the famous adventurous eater has a dog in the fight -- his very own food truck, AZ Canteen, at the event. Also back is Ms. Cheezious, who will fight to retain last year's fan favorite award.

Wine and cocktails have also been added to the event, in addition to last year's Pepsi and beer (we're looking forward to snagging some more of those red, white, and blue straws).

Check out the food truck lineup, before it's even posted on the official SoBe Fest site:
