The BEST Night OUT of the year is coming back to Toronto. The Gourmet Food & Wine Expo is happening THIS coming weekend, starting Thursday November 18th - Sunday November 21st. It is not your typical stuffy wine and cheese party. The hip + urban girls and guys of Toronto literally get all dressed up and ready to party at this food and drink celebration. Our plan is to show up right at 6 PM and hungry. We hit all the food exhibits first and then commence with the wine, beer and cocktail tasting.
Thirsty Traveller, Kevin Brauch tells us how great it's going to be at the Media Preview
Take a cab. You're not going to be able to drive. Yes, you're going to think you're not drinking that much - but you will. The sampling is endless and you're going to want to try everything! Wanna come with Wendy and I to the VIP/Media Evening THIS Thursday night? Can't make that? How about Sunday? We are giving away the *last* two pairs of tickets from our blog. Follow the jump to find out how!
Lynn Crawford jumps in too!

If you're not that into wine, this is a great opportunity to learn more. I am big fan of cocktail lane, where you can sip on some great mixed drinks, frozen slushies and vodka coolers. Beer is also available for sample - it's not just wine. Admission is $16 everyday except for Thursday, which is $35 because it is a Preview Night. Once you're in, sample tickets are $1/each in sheets of 20 tickets. Drink samples average in the $1-3 price. The sparkling and the vintages will cost you more. Food can run from $3-5 and up, but it's gourmet fare at hot dog prices. Plan on spending at least $20-30 when you're there.
