    My husband and I went to the Brickell food and wine event on Sunday and were hugely disappointed! The venue was horrific ( it was on an open field with SOME grass, there was mostly dirt which you can only imagine as it was an extremely windy day). The VIP tents were a joke!!! The food in the VIP tent did not make you want to go back and try anything a second time. The VIP wine and beer tasting tent, I don’t know what you call only being able to sample two beers ( not very much of a sampling if I may say so).Upon entering we were given 10 $1.00 tickets each to be able to purchase food outside of the  tents. Some of the vendors on the outside should have been in the VIP area. It must have been embarrassing for them to be even put in the same category as most of the vendors there.
    Like I said earlier, it was a very windy day. There were tables with umbrellas that flipped over a few times with people sitting (did no one bother to look at the weather to better prepare for the event?). I will never go back to this event. It is a shame because when you think of Brickell you think of a posh area with very promising venues and restaurants that have really great food as well as their chefs. Maybe the Brickell food and wine event committee should reconsider who they actually put in charge of heading this event because whoever it was did a really poor job in representing their committee as well as this lovely city.

    This was the worse festival ever. It was not worth $50 or $ 100 in the VIP section. People were up-set at the lines and the poor quality of the food offered. If you wanted to eat anything decent you had to pay additionally. It was very very dissappointing. I will never recommend this festival to anyone in the community. Save your money and go to a restaurant instead. Also one of the vendors was stremely rude when I asked if I can had an additional cup of his juice he told me he could not give me one, that if interested he can meet me at my business and further discuss the product.  All of my friends were discusted…
