The lovely folks running Lake Carolina's Wine & Food Festival shot me an email and asked if I would put some information about their event on the blog. Rarely do I refuse a request to promote something local (and if I do, it's usually because it's lost in my inbox). Add to that the fact that all proceeds from the event go to Children's Charities of the Midlands, and I'm totally on board.
The event is next Saturday, October 13 from 2 - 5 p.m. Meaing that you will totally be home in time to watch the Carolina / LSU game. For a mere $30, there will be live music, a tailgate tent (where you can watch football), food samples from local restaurants (including Solstice, which is one of my favorites), wine samples from area wineries, and a silent auction. And, if you're the running type, there is a 10K in the morning that you can register for separately.
Let's recap: $30, three hours outside on what will surely be a beautiful October day in Columbia, food samples, wine samples, a big screen tv for football, and live music. Plus it's for a good cause. Totally a no-brainer.
