Weekend food & drink events - September 9th - 11th 2011

On Thursday, one of my favorite weekday wine bars Cru Cellars is hosting an 'Italian Food Flight Night' from 6:30pm featuring flavorful pairings of Italian food and wine. Always educational, the event costs $25pp and you can RSVP by calling or emailing owner Jen on 813 831 1117 or 

Friday night is cheese night at Cheese Please, where you'll get to sample eight difference cheeses of the hot and spicy variety this week. I love cheese. I really, really, really do. The event starts at 7pm and costs $20pp. You can RSVP by calling 813 766 0060. 

If you're a spice fiend, be sure to stop by the 'I Like It Hot Festival', which kicks off at 10am at Minnreg Hall in Largo. Taste and judge the amateur salsa and hot sauce competitions, purchase goods from a variety of tangy vendors, listen to live music and watch (or participate if you're insane) in the spice-o-riffic jalapeno eating competition. Tickets are just $5pp and the festival goes on until 5pm. Take water. Lots.

Sunday is a cooler deal altogether at the 6th Annual Fall Wine Festival in Lithia. Sample more than 100 wines and plenty of Park Square's bistro fare. It's a free event too. We LOVE free. 

If you're in the vicinity of the Whole Foods on North Dale Mabry Hwy this weekend, it'll be worth popping in as it's the store's official Customer Appreciation Weekend. There will be sales and special offers galore as well as free gift bags for the first 100 shoppers, samples, cooking demos and free five minute massages from 1-4pm. Don't mind if I do.
