Outdoor festivals in the fall are some of our favorites—the weather is ideal, and it's always a great time to taste food and drinks that you might want to stock up on over the winter for gift-giving and entertaining. Which is why we're especially excited about The Gourmet Experience event that's kicking off in a few weeks in San Diego. With more than 250 exhibitors showcasing and selling specialty culinary products, The Gourmet Experience is a veritable gourmet shopping experience. Held at the Del Mar Fairgrounds on October 9 and 10, this event is a great chance to taste an array of food, wine, spirits and beer; try out cooking tools and gadgets; watch chef demos; and get lots of great entertaining ideas. And since we're a sponsor, Imbibe readers can save $10 off admission to this year's event—just enter discount code IMBIBE10 when you purchase your tickets online.
