rocky mountain food & wine festival

Sadly, Foodie Suz is not travelling much.  She was in Victoria for a week, but it was at school, where I ate cafeteria food, bad pub food (twice) and really bad sushi (only once).

So let’s focus on food in my hometown of Edmonton, shall we?  I was fortunate enough to score an industry pass to the Rocky Mountain Food & Wine Festival last night, at Shaw Conference Centre.  What I liked most about that was not the free booze, but the fact that the doors were opened early, and the crowds were thin.  This was a contrast to the bone-crushing crowds that appear later in the evening.  I also gave away two tickets on my facebook page.  It was fun to make two guys in business suits happy.  People love free stuff.

A few photos from the event.  This isn’t cutting-edge food journalism folks.  It is a few pictures from a gal that drank vodka and ate cupcakes.
