Major Noms and Fun @ Greenwich Wine + Food Festival 2014: A Full Recap

29 Sep

We’ve just woken up from our food and drink coma courtesy of the 4th Annual Greenwich Wine & Food Festival. To us, as our friend Ken Tuccio who runs the Welcome to Connecticut Podcast said when we saw him on Saturday, this event is our Super Bowl. Seriously, right? There are great drinks to drink, awesome local restaurants and chefs to get to know, plenty of celebrity food people to interact with, and plenty of good vibes going around all in the name of raising money for Paul Newman’s Hole in the Wall Gang. All in all, this was our favorite year of attending and we feel like the festival was stronger than ever.  Here’s our four cents (we both get 2 cents to share, see?) about all three days of events that we were fortunate enough to attend.
