A couple of weeks ago my friend Alicia and I donned our Derby wear and headed up to La Jolla Cove for the annual Junior League of San Diego Food and Wine Festival.
A couple of my friends are members and for the last two years I’ve heard about this wonderful event. This year, I finally went to support. Within minutes I was sorry I hadn’t gone last year. Katie warned me I’d regret missing it – will I ever learn to listen to her?
Tickets run about $85 (I think VIP is $145) but once you’re in the white picket fence, there is tent after tent of tasty little nibbles.
I really enjoyed watching this artist work as I enjoyed my libation under the California sun.
They gave us these clever little plates with a wine glass holder to assist in the balancing act. I wasted no time grabbing everything from sliders to parfaits. I wasn’t sad to see that the “Food and Wine Festival” is a bit loose in their definition- we tasted spirits ranging from beer to Alicia’s favorite- moonshine!
The afternoon passed way too quickly, but only 50 weeks until next year’s event. I highly recommend it to locals, or visitors who happen to be around!
