My favorite dish was the pulled pork Gouda mac and cheese from Chops and Hops or perhaps the two authentic crepe makers showing how the work was done. Chef Jose Zambrano and his staff including Bela Steward at Girasoles did a fine job as well. If anything there was so much amazing food that you had to pick and choose about halfway through it.
The 2014 OCAF Wine Fest was an outstanding event with an auction and food from many of the area's finest restaurants and plenty of beer and wine to go around. With the special events permit as well as beer and wine pouring license proudly displayed, a gathering of a few hundred people dutifully lined up at 3:00 pm and had their licenses checked and auction cards filled out.
I hope they both end up in the Final Four this season.
I am happy that this once Watkinsville restaurant will be relocating next door to Cofer's Home and Garden on Mitchell Bridge Road, and it was great to talk to Stuart and his wife at the event as well. I can't wait until their November 1 opening at the new location.
It was nice to see Kumquat Mae owner and Watkinsville resident Trae Stewart, Sharon Dahlhaus and Trae's daughter Bela Stewart as well.
BrittnyTeree Smith was a wonderful person to run into there, as well as Ashford Manor Bed and Breakfast co-owner Mario Castro. Introduced Mario to my friend Brant Rackley of Athens who was their with his lovely wife.
Thank you to all the folks who asked about my campaign and how it is going so far.
