Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival 2012
I took the entire week off this week for a little staycation. Much like the last time I did this, my goal for this week was to avoid as much responsibility as I could and do as little as possible, and I’m happy to report that I have been quite successful on this front. Other than volunteering at the kids’ school a bit and watching Parks and Recreation on Netflix, about the only thing I’ve managed to do this week is make our annual trip of extreme gluttony, aka, the Epcot Food and Wine Festival. Here’s the photo heavy wrap up.
Mrs. Lo and I started with a trip to the Festival Welcome Center to purchase gift cards (it is way easier to use these while making the rounds instead of cash or debit/credit cards) and have our traditional prosecco toast. This event coincides with our anniversary each year, so that toast allows us to mark another year off the calendar as well as kick off the day in style. We couldn’t have picked a better day to go, as the sun was shining brightly and the crowds were sparse on a Tuesday afternoon.
Roll the food porn. After hitting the craft beer stop for an IPA, first up was Greece and Canada.
After that warmup, we hit our favorite section of the festival, the tasty murder’s row of Ireland, France, and Belgium.
After the nap that may or may not have taken place, we quick took it easy and did some window shopping at the next several booths, only stopping a couple of times until we hit America for a Samuel Adams sampler flight.
After the lobster roll we wound down a bit and watched the American experience show, which I expect to receive an edit fairly soon due to the fairly prominent placement of one Lance Armstrong. Nothing to see here, let’s move on.
And with that, another great trip to Epcot’s Food and Wine festival was over. Until next year. Or maybe Sunday – I’m still pretty hungry.
