Eating appetizers and drinking wine have become some of man's top recreational activities, just after contemplating infinity and napping in the fridge. Let piquant portions entertain you with today's Groupon: for $44, you get a one-day pass to the second-annual Boca Raton Food and Wine Festival at East Camino Real on Saturday November 12 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m (up to $100 value).
Epicureans attending the Boca Raton Food and Wine Festival test tidbits of wine and spirits from 50 tasting booths playing proxy for six world regions while sampling eats from 70 southern-Florida chefs. The festival commences at sunset with a saunter down a 1,635-foot stretch of East Camino Real, transformed into a global village of cuisine through lavish decorations, regional fare, and edible Carmen Sandiego Wanted posters. Journeys begin with the savory fare of France, sweep through Asia, South America, Italy, the United States, and Spain, before winding down at Sweet Endings Village, whose dessert-fueled pleasures give way to two stages of live music, entertainment, and dancing. Wines and spirits from distillers such as Evan Williams and regions such as Napa Valley make siren calls to the senses along the way, charming mouths to tempt their flavors with scintillating scents and charmingly rapped renditions of Homer. Classes conducted by a festival sommelier offer educational breaks from culinary consumption, as do a local farmers' market, shopping bazaar, and outdoor art gallery.
