You guysssss, it’s that time of year again! Also know as one of my FAVORITE times of year. The Denver Food + Wine Festival is fast approaching (September 6th through 11th) and I literally cannot contain my excitement. It’s essentially a week of uber foodie events here in Denver that I have been going to for the past four years.

Every year I look forward to September for this endless week of gorging myself and indulging in so much food, wine and spirits that I can barely eat or drink anything for a full week after.

Well, you all know I don’t have any self-control. Can you really blame me for going balls to the wall insane when this event rolls around each year?

One of my favorite events of the entire week is the Grand Tasting. It’s an afternoon of delicious bites, wines and spirits from all over Colorado and beyond. I mean, there’s over 700 different wines and spirits and food from about 40 of the top restaurants in Denver to dig into. What’s not to love about that?

This year I’m hitting up the Grand Tasting, AND the Shake Down cocktail event (I can’t even contain my excitement about what the Williams and Graham team is going to come up with! Basically all the major boozy events because… well, again people, you know me and my affinity for cocktails.

    Have to start with the spirits!

    I usually start with the spirits!

    I would probably start with the food because then you can drink more cocktails later! Plus savory things are my jam. But really, I’d be happy to dive in anywhere.

    Food, then wine! This festival is so amazing, I would absolutely love to go back!

    Gotta start with spirits to whet the appetite.

    Seasoned food event attendees should be able to double fist a plate and a glass!

      YES! I like your style 😉

  7. Aaron — August 15, 2016 at 9:11 pm (#)

    I would start the adventure with spirits!

  8. William Snow — August 15, 2016 at 9:38 pm (#)

    Definitely would have to start with a cocktail – Probably a Manhattan or Old Fashion.

    Wine, food, spirits, food, wine, food, spirits, etc. 🙂

    I will have to start training my stomach now!!! 😋

  11. Angie — August 18, 2016 at 3:45 pm (#)

    Also, I would definitely start out strong with the food to set the stage for all the wine and spirits! 🙌

  12. Emily S. — August 18, 2016 at 6:13 pm (#)

    Food! With the best chefs all in one place, spirits will have to wait!

    Divide and conquer. I’m pretty sure this is why I got married — I’ll scope out and shove my face with the yummies at the food tables while my husband can grab me a killer cocktail to wash it all down. Then I can send him back to the food tables to grab seconds of what I loved. 😉

      Aw you’re just making me blush now! Good luck! 🙂

    Nothing should ever come between me and delicious food…not even a delicious glass of wine. Food first!
