In other parts of the country, the season is starting to change. People are pulling out the sweaters and trading in their sandals for boots, but luckily for you, you live in Miami and that hasn’t happened just yet. Luckily for you, there are plenty of opportunities to get out into the city without worrying about the weather! One event to certainly take advantage of is the 8th annual Coral Gables Food Wine and Spirits Festival! Go out and explore the best food, the best drinks and craft beer in one of Miami’s best neighborhoods. This year’s festival will be November 8th to the 12th, and restaurants and bars all over the city will be participating with their own events and specials. Prices can range from $25 to $80, so be sure to check with the participating restaurant beforehand. On Saturday, the 11th, and Sunday, the 12th, the festival will host its Grand Sampling event between Salzedo Street and Le Jeune Road. There will be more than 300 beverages featured including craft beer, fine wines and specially prepared cocktails. There will also be dozens of restaurants on site with unlimited food samples. This event is $99. New this year, the festival will also feature an A La Carte area where you can pay as you like and only sample items of your choice. You’ll be able to purchase individual glasses of beer, wine or spirits and get food from on-site vendors and food trucks. Admission is $25 on site but is discounted if you purchase in advance. And of course, the festival will also have live music and entertainment to pair with your delicious food and drinks. If you’re coming into town for the festival or simply want to make a staycation out of it, we’ve got you covered. Our nearby downtown Miami hotel has free Wi-Fi, free hot breakfast every morning and is just a short drive away from the beautiful Coral Gables. Enjoy the food, spirits and wine, Miami!
