Excellent Affordable Wine and Food Phest

  • 4

April 10 at Bayside Expo, the Phantom Gourmet Wine and Food Phest. it is one great event and at $30 you cant beat it 30 foods 30 wines plus some crazy fun. This is prob. the best event for food and wine other than spending a ton of money at the Ct Wine events. So Ma. and Ct have great wine and food events. RI might someday have one . Check it out.

    1. The Phantom Gourmet Wine Phest is a joke. The wines are garbage, the lines are long, the food is mediocre at best. I made the mistake of going once. Never again.

        Chef makes the point that it is affordable. Affordable it the key word here. Yes there are many better wine events, but not at this price point. At this price one would expect to have to wait in lines. Maybe someone will learn about wine and become a foodie. We all have to start somewhere. (I've got to agree with the PG boys being all about themselves though, shameless selfpromotion at it's worst.)

          Why argue about an event which has already taken place? Frank was pushing it a week in advance, presumably so people could go. I know vino and Frank rarely see eye-to-eye, but it seems hyperventilating about something which has passed can't help anyone decide whether or not to go.
