Strolling around with the masses, fighting the crowds on Abbot Kinney not your cup of tea? How about spending the day nestled deep in the Santa Monica Mountains, relaxing under shade trees amongst rolling hills and ponds, gazing upon acres and acres of vineyards just past the llamas and zebras? Is this more your speed? Then skip Taste of Abbot Kinney this year and instead head to The Food Event: From the Vine. Yes, sadly, you must choose because these two events fall on the same day this year. Los Angeles Magazine's 5th annual culinary extravaganza, The Food Event: From the Vine, takes place Sunday, October 24, 1-4pm at Saddlerock Ranch, Vineyard home to Malibu Family Wines. For one price, you can enjoy unlimited chef tastings from several Los Angeles top restaurants and wine tastings from over 30 local vineyards. There will be lessons from a Master sommelier in wine pairings, celebrity chefs perform cooking demonstrations and a Conversation Lounge where you can listen to the panels like the Top Chef Masters. This is a delicious way to spend a lazy Sunday and hey, don't you deserve an escape from the city?
