5 Things to Do at LA Food & Wine This Weekend

August 7, 2012

If you haven’t already bought your tickets for the crazy LA Food and Wine Festival weekend, here are five big events to catch:

1. Get Drunk with Wolfgang Puck aka Lexus LIVE On The Plaza With Wolfgang Puck & Friends

August 11th from 7-10pm at Nokia Plaza at LA Live you can try wine from 80 vineyards and food from 30 chefs from around the country (including Michael Mina and Wolfgang Puck).

2. and 3. Get a Room, with a View aka Summer At The Shore Hosted By Graham Elliot and INDULGE – Santa Monica: Dinner at the Fairmont

August 10th from 7-10:30pm at the Fairmont Miramar, these two overlapping events will let you sample all the best Santa Monica restaurants in one beautiful location. First start with the Graham Elliot event in the hotel’s entryway, then switch over to the Indulge event at Fig. Then, get a room and spend the night in a food coma. Run it off beachside in the morning.

4. My Driver is Waiting Downstairs in My Maybach aka I Heart Champagne & Caviar at The Montage Beverly Hills

August 10th from 7-9pm at the Montage Rooftop in Beverly Hills leave your keys with your driver because the champagnes gonna flow like wine. Words like decadent and extravagant would typically be used for an event like this, but let’s call it what it is Father’s Office fun (Sang Yoon is hosting) but with caviar and champagne instead of burgers and beer.

5. Hasty is Hot aka The Magic & Seduction Of Chocolate With Jacques and Hasty Torres

August 12th from 1:30-2:45pm at the Diamond Ballroom Salon 4 at the JW Marriott downtown end your weekend with Hasty Torres’ outstanding chocolate. Oh, and Jacques will be there too…
