I’ve always wondered why they didn’t put out more seating and tables at the Food & Wine festival. I know that we would spend more time/money enjoying the kiosks if we could find a place to relax and enjoy it. I was so excited to find out they are offering a new way to experience the festival. We booked it for the week of October 6th, and we picked the Thursday Late Night Live party. It was really hard to book it when I called - it’s so new that the CM didn’t know much about it, and she was trying really hard to give me the correct information. It took over an hour, but I really didn’t mind - we are just so excited to try it out. We have 4 adults and one 10 year old in our party. We purchased 5 packages. Here is more information on the package -

I still have lots of questions, and not sure how it all works. I will post a review and lots of pictures when I return.
