No, don’t worry – I won’t break into a rendition of the track from The Pointer Sisters. I’m not THAT cruel and, of course, my singing is banned here in the Sunshine State.
Tomorrow I’m headed down to sunny South Beach for the 2009 Food Network’s South Beach Food & Wine Festival. Granted, I’m crazy tired from the daily grind but when a gal hears that some of her fave personalities (and bloggers) will be in the area, well then – one needs to go.
Sadly, one of my fave chefs/blogger buds, Bren won’t be attending this year (girl – you better be going to the NY event!) but, don’t worry B. – I’ll be texting from the stands.
I pinky swore that I’d take pics and, don’t worry – I’m armed with cameras, cell phone, etc. I plan on catching as many of the chef demos as I can. Tomorrow they have: Sunny Anderson, Ingrid Hoffman, Michael Symon, Marcus Samuelsson, Anne Burrell, Morimoto, Tyler Florence, the Neelys, Cat Cora, Paula Dean, Bobby Flay etc. etc. As quite a few of these peeps are on my Tivo on the regular, I’m going to be bouncing from stage to stage. However, as Bobby Flay is closing the show – I don’t know if I can catch his demo however, I will try (if time allows. Sadly, I still have a 4 hour drive back and have to be home Sun. night… :::sigh:::) Somehow, I also need to hit up those tents too to give you the inside scoop. So, the stilettos are NOT going with – those can be saved for another day.
Can’t wait – talk to y’all on Monday!!!
