I’m honored to once again serve as emcee for the opening event of the Latin Food & Wine Festival, Savor the Night. And again this year, it will be held at the Stirling Global Gallery on the top floor of the Plaza overlooking downtown Orlando. This was a terrific event last year, with lots of good Latin food, music by DJ Memo and live performances, wines and cocktails on the wraparound terrace. It’s one of the best views in town, and this is one exciting event.
The bad news is that Savor the Night is sold out. But the Saturday event, the Grand Tasting, still has tickets available. This year the LFWF is taking over Cranes Roost Park in Uptown Altamonte. And here’s the better news: admission is free. You pay only for the food and drinks you want to enjoy. No charge for the great music and cooking demonstrations.
The Grand Tasting kicks off Saturday, Oct. 15, from 4 to 10 p.m. Cranes Roost Park is at 274 Cranes Roost Blvd., Altamonte Springs, off of Altamonte Boulevard, just east of Interstate 4. Parking is free, too.
If you’ve already got your tickets to Savor the Night, I’ll see you Friday, Oct. 14, high above Orlando; be sure to say hello. If not, then plan on coming out on the 15th for the Grand Tasting. Here's a link to the Latin Food & Wine Festival website for more information.
