Clearwater Uncorked - Food and Wine Festival 2012
The second annual Clearwater Beach Uncorked Food and Wine adventure is taking place this weekend! This is the destination for foodies, wine aficionados and craft & micro-brew beer lovers. Local restaurants and hotels will be preparing food for the event paired with wines from over 100 wineries, micro-brews and craft beers.
The timing of this event couldn't be more perfect, my best friend is coming into town on Sunday and we were looking for something fun to do. We will be able to meet wine specialists, vintners and brew masters, along with some of the best chefs from across the Bay including Ralph Pagona from Hells Kitchen and Iron Chef. Along with amazing food and drinks, South Gulfview Boulevard will be converted into a street festival. Fashion tip: my friend Lauren says to wear flip flops instead of heals as you will be walking in the sand.
A portion of ticket sale proceeds will benefit two local charity partners of the event; the Abilities Foundation - helping Floridians with disabilities to obtain jobs and affordable housing; and Florida Restaurant and Lodging Associations' ProStart education program - assisting student between the 10th and 12th grade to acquire foodservice experience before graduation.
Tickets are $85 in advance, all sampling is inclusive. If you are reading this post on November 13th, you are in luck as today is the last day to purchase a Groupon for this event at 51% off face value.
