I am super stoked that my friend Kelly is getting to attend the Third Annual Clearwater Beach Uncorked – Beachside Food & Wine Adventure in my place next month. Clearwater is one of my all time favorite places in the world, and I just know she is going to have an amazing time. The Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Resort and Spa will be hosting the event this year which will include some of the best chefs in the area pairing their amazing food with amazing wines and spirits. The event will take place on February 8th and 9th, 2014 from 1p.m. to 5p.m. Tickets are available now and would make the PERFECT early Valentine’s Day gift for your sweetie! Sun, sand, food, and wine… it doesnt get much better than that.
Publix is one of the presenting sponsors of this fabulous event and will be bringing in their Apron’s Cooking School. In addition, a myriad of national brands will be participating including: Perrier, Buittoni, Haagen Dazs, Apple & Eve, San Pellegrino and many many others. Local restaurants are also involved, including Shor, Pier House 60, and Caretta – some of my favorites! You can check out the full list of sponsors and participants here.
Clearwater Beach Uncorked will offer the perfect pre-Valentine’s Day beach weekend filled with an extensive array of sweet and savory samplings complemented by an impressive selection of wines, spirits and craft beers from around the globe. South Gulfview Boulevard’s transformation will encourage guests to venture between the one-of-a-kind Uncorked Spirits Beach Bar and the Grand Tasting Village to meet and mingle with wine specialists, vintners & brew masters, and the areas best and brightest chefs. The Grand Tasting Village will include delicious samplings from the area’s top restaurants, wine from over 100 wineries and an exciting array of micro-brews and craft beers. Guests can also slip away to the Uncorked Spirits Beach Club to capture a breath taking view and sample spirits that will satisfy any tastemaker’s palate. This year a Decadent Dessert tent will showcase Bubbles on the Beach featuring bubbles, sweets, pastries and all things rich and gooey just in time for Valentine’s Day.
