Food and wine festivals are a sure sign that summer is near, just like sunflowers in bloom or snowmen screaming in agony. Celebrate the eternal cycle with this Groupon from Key West Bacchanalia. Choose between the following options:

During the third-annual food-and-libations celebration known as Key West Bacchanalia, revelers descend upon the verdant island in droves, sampling renowned rums and locally-crafted eats while boogying to live tunes or watching chefs in action. On Friday, visitors can join and judge the celebrity cook-off between Chef Adrianne Calvo and Chef Tim Hadley. A cocktail by Rums of Puerto Rico kicks off a four-course dinner that the dueling chefs serve side-by-side (eight dishes total) with worldly wines and two more feature cocktails. On Saturday, visitors mill about the Grand Tasting Village, sipping unlimited handpicked wines, spirits, and Puerto Rican rums, including Zacapa. The aroma of burgers sizzling on nearby grills wafts toward waiting taste buds as industry professionals helm cuisine-related seminars and dynamic ditties spill out of Ricks Restaurant and onto the hips of partygoers.

Sunday’s festivities at Hog’s Breath Saloon pit Top Chef contestant Howie “the Bulldog” Kleinberg against fellow celebrity chef Norman Van Aken against each other in a battle to determine the culinary victor, awarding extra points for getting the burgers to flip themselves. Diners devour unlimited samples of certified-Angus barbecue (while supplies last) and swill beer and rum while voting for their favorite.

Showing its more serious side, the festival benefits the Darrell Gwynn Foundation, an organization that raises awareness and funds for victims of paralysis.

Key West Bacchanalia

Rum, spirits, music, sun, and food: the Key West Bacchanalia celebrates summer with all five. The festival pours out tastes of Puerto Rican rum cocktails and other select drinks, which guests sip while watching celebrity chefs whip up savory cuisine in the handheld form of burgers and barbecue. A portion of the event's proceeds benefit the Darrell Gwynn Foundation, an organization supporting individuals with paralysis.
