Win International Wine & Food Fest Tickets!

Get your comments ready, folks. It's another tasty giveaway!

The 11th annual International Wine and Food Festival is coming up Feb. 11-14, and Metrocurean is giving away a pair of tickets to Sunday's Grand Tasting. (Perfect Valentine's Day date, yes?)

Leave a comment on this post by Thursday at 10 a.m., and I'll choose one winner at random to receive the pair of tickets. (You must be 21 to attend.) Check back Thursday to see if you've won.

The festival is filled with all kinds of delicious happenings — from a kickoff party at PS 7's to brunch at Ris for DC Central Kitchen — but the main attraction will be Saturday and Sunday's Grand Tasting and Street-Fare Food Pavilion, from 2-6 p.m. at the Ronald Reagan Building. (The winner gets tickets to Sunday's tasting and pavilion.)

At the tasting, 100 international wineries will pour more than 600 wines. The International Food Pavilion will serve dishes from around the globe (Australian lamb, mini falafel, gelato) paired with wines.

For complete information and tickets, check out wineandfooddc.com.

I'd love to go! My last experience at this festival was several years ago, when there was very little in the way of "Food" given it was billed as a festival partly of same, and much to the detriment of my health the next day.
