Who is doing F&W this year? When?

OK, I know that this is more a topic for the Restaurant board but I'm wondering if any of the regulars here on the Podcast board are planning on doing the F&W Festival.

Val & I are currently targeting October 10-17th which is Wednesday-Wednesday. We figure that gives us several week days to hit the booths before the heavier weekend crowds. It also includes the Swolphin Food Fest on the 12th and 13th. As an extra added bonus there is the annual Downs Walk on the morning of the 13th so we will finally get a chance to come out and be part of Ferris' Funky Bunch.

Anybody else got plans?

I'm not sure. I was thinking of taking down the GKTW money and maybe doing F&W (I have never done), and then the buddy walk......however, after yesterday, I may like to take in the NE meet for the weekend in Sept. and then head to Orlando then.
Decisions, decisions

We will be there twice. Sept 28-Oct. 1 (mainly for the RunDisney event). Then again Nov.2-12. We will not do too much the first weekend, but will hit it hard in November!

Lots of good plans, but so far it doesn't sound like many of us are overlapping. Val & I wish we could be there for the entire thing.

Wait a minute.....

Originally we planned Sept. 29 - Oct. 21...then work messed that up, so now we're going down Sept. 21 - Oct. 8. The first week concentrating on our favorite restaurants, then the second week will be devoted to the Food and Wine Festival.

looks like 10/12 and 10/13 is Swan and Dolphin Food and Wine also. Jeff and Val you need to try this out. Each has its old flavor, but I prefer the Swan and Dolphin after going last year. Both are great.
