Fella named Eddie Zubric e-mails all the way from Vienna to say:
Hi Fred. My sons and I are going to be in South Florida in May. We’d appreciate information about some nice wine festivals there. Thanks a bunch.
Eddie, you’re just in time. The outdoor wine festival season is winding down quickly as hurricane (sigh) season approaches.
But there’s a good one on Thur., May 1. The Las Olas Wine and Food Festival takes place from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on Las Olas Boulevard between Southeast Eighth Avenue and Southeast 11th Avenue, with 44 wine and spirits tables and 57 restaurant tables. Price is $75.
And there’s a VIP Reception from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Las Olas and Eighth Avenue. Price is $200.
“We’re cutting off attendance at 2,000,” says event director Paula Ettline. “There won’t be any feeding frenzies.”
