    I attended the Candy Sushi even this past Sunday and I had my 5 year old with me. This even isn't really for adults. There was a standby line, but most of them weren't able to enter the event. I think they took 2 people from standby.

    Glad to read your review. We are doing it for the first time next week and really looking forward to it! We have done the Italian and Mediterrean and were never disappointed in eithe one. This sounds like the trend will continue.

    We had the Italian Regional lunch yesterday at Tutto Gusto and it was very good. We were seated at a table with 12 other diners and we had the nicest time visiting while dining. Wine pours were small and there were not many refills. Food was very good, too.

    We enjoyed that one enough last year to repeat it this year. Sounds like repeating will be a good choice.

    We did that a few years ago. Talk about a lot of glasses. One beer and one wine for each course.

    Thoroughly enjoyed your review and your blog. Your straightforward writing style and nice photography made your review a joy to read. Well done. We'll be heading to the Festival (and the French Lunch) on October 19.

    Has anyone ever done the moonshine tasting? I accidentally signed up for this one think it was a wine event.:scared: I'm not much of a big drinker so I'm not sure what to expect. I have never had moonshine! :D

    We went today. Food was amazing and the wine was excellent. First two wines flowed. Last three did not. One pour and done. Not too pleased. If I had known I would have actually saved some to pair with the food.

    I've never done that tasting, but I work in the alcohol industry. The "moonshine" is really a type of flavored vodka. They'll probably make some cocktails out of it.

    Is that the one with the guy from Jack Daniels? We happened to be there and sat on a bench right outside of there and his presentation sucked me in. I watched most of it and really wanted the tasters.

    That was a fun read. Thanks for posting. I’m less than three weeks out from F&W and look forward to sampling many on your list.

    Have the run out of similar passholder gifts in years past? Won't be able to get mine until Nov. 3rd - day 4 of a 4 day trip. Never been a passholder before. Would really like to get one since I'm not sure when I'll be a passholder again. Won't be the end of the world if I don't, though. Just curious.

    Great day at F&W. The French family meal traditions lunch was amazing. fabulous food and well paired, delicious, free flowing wines. The desert was almost too pretty to eat. Helped that we were seated with awesome people. What fun!

    After lunch we picked up our cutting boards. Bigger than we thought.

    The kicker....got a fast pass for FoP. Sitting in nomad lounge now relaxing after another incredible day.
