Toast with friends and raise your glasses this year at the 2016 Epcot Food and Wine Festival Beverage Seminars. It’s an absolute must do if you’re a connoisseur of wine or any other tantalizing adult concoction. Sommeliers and other beverage experts share their knowledge during the 45 minute presentations. Hipsters are able to indulge in the lesson of the day by tasting wines, beers, and liquors offered.

Wine Tasting at Whole Foods Market

Wine Tasting Whole Foods Market Carrollwood-Tampa

Disclosure: I was provided free wine and cheese from Whole Foods Market in Carrollwood based on my participation.

Another Tampa Tale is here for this ThemeParkHipster and I am eager to share my wine tasting journey at Whole Foods Market (WFM) in Carrollwood.

What a way to start spring than by having the opportunity to sip my way around the wine regions of Italy –Piedmont Region, Tuscany Region, Veneto Region, and the Umbria Region.

Radio City Christmas Spectacular Starring The Rockettes comes to Tampa!

A small piece of New York City has landed in the center of the central Florida ThemePark world. The Radio City Christmas Spectacular Starring The Rockettes premiered in Tampa this past Thursday to guests at the Straz Center. The guests were even treated to a grand red carpet event to welcome the lovely ladies, and Santa, as they were escorted down the aisle with Tampa Bay’s finest men in blue.

Tasting My Way Around the World at EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival

What do you call an experience globetrotting the many cuisines of multiple countries in one day??? I call it Tasting My Way Around the World at EPCOT! This year’s event was really peaceful and enjoyable. I guess it was due to the fact that I’d tasted most of the items from previous years so this time I was able to focus solely on trying new dishes, new cocktails, and new seminars.

2013 Resolution #2: EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival

I had the pleasure of attending the 2013 EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival, which actually turned out to be one of my best times at the park. The cooler temperature was balanced by the soft kisses of the Florida sun on my skin. Immediately upon entering EPCOT I was greeted by the beloved faces of the Disney brand enjoying they’re rendition of a colorful springtime bar-b-que.

“Vino, Vino, Vino! That’s why I love Epcot.”

I think I have found my new hidden adult play spot in EPCOT. Italy is slowly becoming my favorite Pavilion in the World Showcase. Why? Let’s start off by talking about the extensive wine selection at the newest addition to Italy, Tutto Gusto Wine Cellar.

“Riesling mixed with blogging….What kind of writing is that?”

Theme park hopping has always been a passion of mine since early childhood; however, I had to “crawl before I walked” in relation to the hierarchy of amusement parks out here. I wanted to visit Walt Disney World since my first conception of theme parks, but I started my early years out at places such as Board Walk and Baseball, SeaWorld Orlando, Cypress Gardens, and Universal Studios Orlando (which was absolutely awesome in the 90s).
