Does anyone if (or when) they'll announce the Cast Memeber preview for Food and Wine. I assume it will be on Thursday the 27th? I know in year's past that the preview took place from 1pm-5pm(ish) on the preceding Thursday to the start of F&W

They don't announce it publicly but it is always Thursday before opening. So, this year, the 27th.

I thought that was her...

And I don't have any desire to see anyone who EVER appeared on any "Housewives of ANYTHING" LOL! (Plus the word that comes to mind when I see her rhymes with "witch")

And I don't see a real connection here... I guess the Skinnygirl drinks but... we are streching again Disney LOL!

Someone called me from the Food and Wine staff today regarding our PFTS tickets. They asked if we had any allergies or had anyone we would like to sit with. So excited we leave one week from tomorrow!

Yep. Me too. She asked:
1. Anyone in our party have allergies?
2. Anyone in our party have special needs?
3. Is there another party going to the PFTS that you would like to sit near?
4. The call concluded with: "Great, you're confirmed for the Party for the Senses. Thank you!"

Jim Beam is a sponsor of the F&W Festival, and they purchased the Skinnygirl rights from Bethany for $$$$$$$$$$$$.

Yep.

And the Food & Wine Festival is now really the Food & Wine & Beer & Liquor Festival.

Hey all if your around for Oct 5th, can recommend the Kitchen Memories with Duskie Estes and John Stewart of Zazu Restaurant Farm if it's not sold out...we went last year and enjoyed the lunch thoroughly - food was pork inspired and the stories were interesting and fun ... we were in wine country last month and ate at their restaurant Zazu and it was great as well.... Also did Art Smith a couple of years back and again enjoyed both the food and the stories...
This year we are going with some 1st timer friends and PFTS is the big event so - until next year for Kitchen Memories... Have fun all!

Are you seated in the vine view loung or the reserved seating? Wonder if they will be calling everyone as their date gets closer

We are in the reserved seating, not WVL. Will be interesting to see how they set up the floor this year.

Actually she was a private chef specializing in healthy eating long before her days of creating the Skinnygirl Margarita. She's also written many books which focus on healthy recipes & eating habits. I'd love to hear her speak; she's highly motivating. I truly believe she used the Housewives platform to ignite her career & then backed out as soon as she found success in her intended career.

'Taste Your Way Around the World’ with a Disney Gift Card

There's an article posted on Disney Parks Blog about the F & W gift card:

http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blo...nted-by-chase/

"Activate your Disney Gift Card for as little as $5 and just swipe to pay for food and more"

I hope that this statement means that $5 is the minimum amount you can put on the card, not that there's a $5 fee to use it.

You have to get a Disney Visa Rewards Card and use that to transfer the money onto the Disney Gift cards.
