Yes. And yes.
Both of those will be available to enjoy in abundance (but responsibly) at the Rocky Mountain Wine and Food Festival taking place Friday, Oct. 12 and Saturday, Oct. 13 in the BMO Centre at Stampede Park.
What is it? What can you expect?
How about offerings from more than 40 area restaurants, and more than 350 wines from 20 different countries, as well as 291 beers.
More specific? OK, we’ll let organizers of the two-decade-plus annual event give you a little, er, taste:
“From sweet treats by Cōchu Chocolatier and Sweet Tooth Ice Cream to Mini Lobster Rolls from Red Plate, Butternut Squash Ravioli from Cactus Club Café, Raw Oysters from Rodney’s Oyster House, Pumpkin Pie with Maple Bourbon Cream from Starbelly Open Kitchen + Lounge, pizza from PZA Parlour, Beef Tenderloin from Saltlik – and new to the event, Midtown Kitchen & Bar who will be serving up Pork Belly Sliders and Steak Tartare, and Two Penny Restaurant and Bar who will be plating Scallion Pancake Rolls with Braised Beef, there’s something for everyone during the event.”
Guess what? We have tickets to the Friday night of the event and we want to give them to YOU. Yes, YOU.
It’s a very, very quick turnaround so again, we’ll do it this way: Head to our Facebook page, and just comment under this post, tagging a friend that you would like to wine and dine. We will let the winner know via direct message before noon on Friday, so make sure you’re free for the evening and have an appetite and thirst. (Please note: This is an 18+ event.)
