Spring fun at the food and wine festival of festivals: The Sugar Land Wine and Food Affair

Sugarland Wine and Food affair logoThis weekend the Sugarland Wine and Food Affair rolls into town and without question for me this is the most well organized and memorable wine festivals that Houston and the surrounding areas have to offer.  From bartender challenges to wines from all over the world to more food that can be conquered in a weekend the event offers the best of what local chefs and internationally wineries have to offer.

Starting tonight you can get in on the fun with the New Amsterdam Vodka On the Rocks Bartenders Challenge.  The event lets the creativity of five of the top local bartenders shine through as each bartender offers their unique spin on the featured ingredient.  As this year New Amsteredam Vodka is the main ingredient I am sure the variation of concepts will be mind blowing.

As TGIF rolls in the weekend offers an assortment of events all meant to give you the finest of food, wine, beer and cocktails.  Friday presents the premier event, the Grand Tasting.  Come hungry, thirsty and ready to have some fun.  As the event is inside it is the only opportunity you have to enjoy the pleasures the festival has to offer all inside, and sometimes climate control is a win in Houston weather.  With the festive crowd and the delicious cuisine inside it is an event not to be missed.

If being outside, or drinking beer, is more your cup of tea check out the Sip and Stroll on Saturday.  This events offers variation galore with food samplings sprinkled throughout the two building setup.  Even better for your beer lover there is a beer garden dedicated to give you the variation in familiar and new tastes of beers that you can get at a few other venues.

To wrap the weekend, the Bistro Brunch is a great way to not dread the end of your weekend as you are surrounded in the savory and sweet better known as brunch.  The brunch provides a smooth finish to a weekend of fun with live jazz in the middle of Sugar Land Town Square.

Barre non this event is the crème de la crème.  For more details of the fun of the weekend check out last year’s recaps!
