Hi All,

The Food Festival is here :) www.westofwestern.com starts tomorrow!! hope everyone can make it. I'll be at the slow food booth sat and sunday from 1:30 to 3:30 if anyone wants to come by and say hi :


Everything is under big tents this year, so it should help if there's any rain. Rain Schmain, its about the food and wine anyway ;)

    I'm very skeptical about "rain-schmain". Last year was supposed to be rain or shine, but when we got there on Sunday, everything was closed down. Fortunately they were very good about issuing refunds, but this weekend looks like the same thing.

        just got back - wow what food :D lets see, what i liked - the 3 course tasting from digestif enoteca, the lobster bisque with truffle oil from a different point of view, scallops from view 360, pizza from grimaldi's, and the chocolate cups with orange essence cream from sweet pea bakery....aaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh yes :D

        so, the head of slow food phoenix had a death in the family, so i will be pouring wine for him. all be in the wine tent, furthest vendor.
