In February, the South Beach Wine & Food Festival will commandeer a broad swathe of Miami into the service of eating food and drinking (lots and lots of) wine. This has been going on for ten years. The other day we spoke to festival founder Lee Schrager about that which he is most excited.

Moët Hennessy USA presents Sobe’s 10th Year Anniversary Party “Let Them Eat Cake” hosted by Emeril Lagasse and Martha Stewart sponsored by Ocean Drive Magazine
Our ten year anniversary is the only official party. It's at a parking garage. It's a great big high ceilinged 360 view of the city. Emeril Lagasse and Martha Stewart are hosting. It's not overly sponsored. It's about celebrating ten years of what we created. KC and the Sunshine Band is performing. They almost beat The Touch. They are so South Beach and so Miami.

Tribute Dinner honoring Alain Ducasse presented by Bank of America
I am excited about Ducasse. He cooked at our first dinner ten years ago. He should have been honored long before our tenth year. It's extra special full circle.

Perrier-Jouët BubbleQ presented by Allen Brothers hosted by Emeril Lagasse and Friends
Bubble-Q put us on the menu. It's the final year for Bubble-Q. This is going to be the final year of Bubble-Q. It's ten years. I would never want to walk through the Bubble-Q and hear people say it is tired. I would rather put it to bed.

A Drunken Cooking Demo with Sandra Lee
Ms. Lee is not involved because all the changes in her life. We expect her to be in New York in the Fall. It's certainly something on my wishlist. I can tell you Sandra is always a big draw. Probably with her change in status she'll be a bigger draw.
