The annual New Orleans Wine and Food Experience gets under way today.–You know, the past ten years of my life could be categorized as a “New Orleans wine and food experience.”–Anyway, the “experience” is a non-profit festival in its nineteenth year, and one of the most prestigious of its kind. It continues through the weekend.
Tonight at 7 are myriad wine dinners at notable restaurants throughout the city. Each dinner is accompanied by offerings from a different winery. The meals are all-inclusive and run between $75-$125 a head. Some of them are sold out. Here’s a link.
Before dinner, however, do check out Wine Lovers: a Musical. Apparently, it’s some kind of romantic comedy about a couple of yuppies people falling in love at a wine tasting. But, here’s the kicker: this show is interactive, and the price of admission includes six glasses of wine. Yes, six! The play is in conjunction with the festival, but is continuing its run at Le Petit Theatre past the weekend.
