September Festivities

We generally post individually about specific events as they approach, but there are so many great festivals happening this month that we figured we'd do a round-up of a few we're especially looking forward to.

Depending on where you live, the second weekend in September should have something on tap for you. In San Diego, September 11–13, Spirits of Mexico will once again present some of the finest tequila and mezcals under one roof. If you're a tequila buff, this is always a great event to check out. In the middle of the country that same same weekend is the Epicurean Classic, where food and drink enthusiasts will converge to mingle with well-known chefs and authors in the scenic town of Traverse City, Mich. (check out more details in the post below). Heading east that weekend is Euphoria, a wine and food festival in the lovely city of Greenville, S.C., where you'll enjoy lots of tastings, demos and parties.

And, of course, one of the big events of the month happens September 16-21 in Bardstown, Ky., where the Kentucky Bourbon Festival will satisfy bourbon lovers with a knee-weakening array of whiskies from one of the most beautiful parts of the country. Whether or not you can actually make it this year, be sure to read up on the bourbon trail in the current issue.

Do you know how many tequilas will be at Spirits of Mexico?

There will be more than 3 dozen brands at the festival, at last count.

One day I will make it to the bourbon festival--there could not be a more tempting event IMO. And after reading Mr. Boudreau's bourbon article, I am seriously coveting those experimental bourbons from Buffalo Trace. Man, what I would do to get a taste of some of those.
