Austin Food and Wine Festival

April 27th-29th, ATX is going a little food crazy, with dozens of presentations covering everything from global street food (hosted by Andrew Zimmern) to curing hangovers ("Bartender of the Year" winner Jim Meehan of New York's PDT). Other highlights include a VIP tasting featuring Dallas's Tim Byres and Austin's Aaron Franklin, and the "Rock Your Taco Celebrity Chef Showdown", a battle royale wherein nine chefs including Tim Love and Morimoto will have no fear of stepping on each others' Dori-toes.
