The weather in Atlanta has been fantastic the last few days. A slight breeze, fresh air and sunny skies for the Atlanta Food & Wine Festival. The weather has accentuated what a great location Atlanta is to celebrate Southern food, wine and hospitality.
The weather has taken a slight turn today. But a little drizzle won’t stop the wine connoissuer, foodie or family celebrating Mother’s Day from enjoying festivities of the day. You never know where you’ll find your next priceless moment, so get out there and savor some of the best food and wine the South has to offer. And don’t forget to bring your Delta medallion card for expedited access to the tasting tents.
Thank goodness for the excellent festival planning team and Loews hotel which will allow activities to continue as planned. The cooking classes, technical cocktail labs and tasting tents will all be open and on schedule.
