Win 2 Tickets to LA Times THE TASTE 2012 With Unlimited Food, Wine & Fun #TasteLA

I’m super excited about The LA Times “THE TASTE” 2012 on September 1-3, 2012.  I attended the event last year and tasted the best appetizers, food and desserts.  My taste buds are still dancing!  I was also  introduced to Watermelon Lemonade among other things.

This years event will showcase Los Angeles Top Restaurants, Cooking and Mixology Demos, Wine Seminars, Star Chefs, world renowned Food Critic panel discussions & more.  If you’re looking for ideas for Labor day weekend make sure to make time for THE TASTE and consider making it a weekend celebration!

I’m looking forward to going again this year.  LA Times “THE TASTE” 2012 is truly going to be a foodies paradise.
