Hey friends! I am back to share an exciting event with you all! Next week is the 12th Annual Wine and Food Week in the Woodlands.  This year’s theme is “A New York State of Mind” and will be held from June 6th through 12th at various venues in the Woodlands area.

When they said “WEEK” they were serious. Check out the jam packed schedule below!

Tuesday, June 7th 7-10pm “It’s A Guy Thing” includes food, drink and entertainment catered to the men such as poker, craft beers and cigars.  Everything about that has “guy party” written all over it.

Wednesday, June 8th 6-9pm “Women, Wine, & All Things Fashionable” it is now the ladies turn with a day centered around US and all the things we love.  This day will feature a fashion show, wine, food and even a fortune teller!

Thursday, June 9th 5:30-8:30pm “HEB Wine Walk at Market Street,” for this event patrons will sip and stroll through Market street to shop.  There will be about 40 tasting stations throughout which will include craft beers and food from 20 restaurants. Of course the event will feature music to make the strolling with wine even more fun!

Friday, June 10th there are a couple of events on Friday. For the ladies who lunch, from noon to 3pm there is a “Ladies of the Vine Tasting, Luncheon and Panel Discussion” which will feature wine tasting stations.  Then moving into the nighttime hours there will be an event from 6pm to 9pm called “Sips, Suds & Tacos” where guests will take part in the “Taco Takedown,” a competition to determine the best taco! As with the other events, it will of course feature wine, beer and live music.

Saturday, June 11th is the last day and the event planners have really filled this day up as well! From 4:30pm to 6:30pm the “Northwestern Mutual Platinum Wine Vault” will provide access to an exclusive tasting before the week’s grand finale.  The week long celebration ends with the “Wine Rendezvous Grand Tasting & Chef Showcase” from 7pm to 10pm.  This is an adult event that will include competition featuring more than 60 of the nation’s top restaurants.  There will even be a “Just Desserts” contest.  Best of all, this event benefits an organization called New Danville, a master integrated community for adults with intellectual disabilities.

Tickets for these events are still on sale and some will be available at the door!  A foodie friend went to a lot of the events last year and told me it is hands down one of her favorite food and wine events in the greater Houston area.  When I saw the list I was excited and willing to drive to the Woodlands for ALL of the events, but unfortunately I have plans for some of the days :(. As it tends to be though, my loss is your gain BGWB readers! That’s right, I will be giving away passes to several of the days I described above!  Most importantly, I’m giving away passes to the Grand Tasting.  Please do not underestimate this event! *pssst tickets are regular $125!!!* This isn’t something you will want to miss trust me.  I’m too upset that I cannot go myself!
