Friday Freebie: Tix to the Great American Food and Music Fest!featured

Mark your calendars and start saving calories now, for a summer eatfest to end all eatfests. The Great American Food and Music Fest is coming our way Saturday June 13th!

A celebration of great American food, chefs, winemakers, and musicians, hosted by none other than Bobby Flay, the Great American Food and Music Fest promises to be a blowout event featuring the best food from around the country.

Like…legendary pastrami sandwiches from Katz’s Deli (NY), Junior’s cheesecake (Brooklyn), Tony Luke’s cheesesteaks (Philly), Anchor Bar buffalo wings (Buffalo), Pink’s chili dogs (LA), Graeter’s ice cream (Cincinnatti), Zingerman’s bacon sampler (Ann Arbor), Texas BBQ from Southside Market (Elgin), and more.

American classics from the best of the best.

Gnom gnom gnom…this is going to be one glorious food baby.

STARSTRUCK: There will be chef demos by Food Network celebs Bobby Flay, Guy Fieri, Anne Burrell, and Aida Mollenkamp, along with some of the Bay Area’s finest chefs, including Nate Appleman (A16), Nancy Oakes (Boulevard), and Bruce Aidells (Aidell’s Sausage).

FOR THE WINOS: A Grand Tasting Tent showcasing great American wines and seminars like “Pairing Wine with Food” and “Great Wines Under $15.”

HEALTHY & LOCAL: A mandatory Bay Area topic I suppose…topics on tap sound interesting though, like “Eating Organic on a Budget.” Also, look out of an Edible Schoolyard Exhibit (wonder if healthy & local icon Alice Waters will be there herself).

MUSIC TO EAT BY: Live performances by Big Bad Voodoo Daddy,
Little Feat, and Marshall Crenshaw.
