Two Ways to Break The Heat This Weekend

As most of you already know I love the NYC Food and Wine Festival. I can't wait until Fall to try out all the great food and wine at the Grand Tasting...that is I truly don't have to wait. Because the Atlantic City Food and Wine Festival is this weekend!!! It's only a few hours away and I have to say the beach is really calling me this year. I'm done with the steamy weather and just need a break so AC is where I'm headed!

I'm most excited about the Robert Mondavi Discover Wines Grand Market and Italian Village. It's no secret I love tasting and trying everything and this event should have over 125 different vendors. Apparently the "Discover" part of the event includes a wine cooking stage and Essence Station where you learn about the smell of wine along with cooking. I know a good amount about wine but I really need some help in the cooking department so I'm really looking forward to this event.

Also going on this weekend and until Labor Day is Restaurant Week! Most years its extended for a just a few restaurants but this year I would say about 85% are continuing the deal! Looks like more awesome lunches are going to be had. (BTW I had one more amazing on at Quality Meats that I still have to tell you about) Check out what places stuck around and plan a fabulous Friday dinner!
