JLSD Food & Wine Festival

IMG_6979A 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.

IMG_6964We spent the afternoon ambling from tent to tent under the sun, nibbling and sipping and (of course) popping over to the photo booth every chance we got!

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!
