Let me tell you a story...

In the sad, dark days before the Memphis Food & Wine Festival came to town, Memphis foodies and wine lovers had to schlep to far and distant lands to experience this particular kind of event.

We were starved for such a snazzy evening of sips and bites from local and visiting chefs from around the world on a large enough scale that we wouldn't leave hungry or sober.

But hark! A few years ago, a light shone through the festival darkness, and Memphis Food & Wine fest was born. And there was much rejoicing! There were rave reviews from folks who'd experienced other such fests and were happy to finally have one at home.

But seriously, if you can splurge on tickets—and I realize most of us can't—it'll be well worth it. You must read this first hand account of the first event from Andrea LeTard to get an idea of what to expect.

I would love to go because great food and wine and being outdoors in Memphis in October would equal a near perfect night. Plus life could use a happy right now for me...being in a rut would be an understatement

I really want to have the whole Memphis experience I would share this moment with my best friend! I know we would have the most amazing time. Plus I really want to meet you!! I moved to Memphis last fall and still exploring all this great city has to offer. This is the best of both worlds. #ilovememphis <3 Sarah

Aside from eating allll the yummy food?! I’d love a chance to chat with chefs and hopefully find some inspiration for new serving-focused ceramic designs!

I want to hold my wine glass by the bottom of the stem and swish my wine around haughtily.

I’ve always wanted to go to something like this but could never afford it. I want to go because who doesn’t enjoy food made by some truly talented people...and wine! What a great opportunity to try new things and discover what Memphis has to offer!

I would love to have a wonderful, much needed date night with my partner (without the little one)!!! We weren't able to celebrate our anniversary this past month and this would more than make up for it!!

I should get the tickets because there arent many advocates for Memphis Food & Wine on my level. In addition to telling them about the ilovememphis blog, and its assorted guides, I literally send newcomers & some natives my own personal list of favorite restaurants & dishes when I meet them. Also, i need a pick-me-up after having an amazing day at Best Memphis Burger Fest that garnered a pretty disappointing turnout of festival goers.

I need these tickets because I will be very depressed after Navy beats our Tigers. My only chance to avoid abject depression will be to drown myself with good wine and bathe in the dopamine that comes from a belly full of good food.
