The ‘Kick Off Your Flip-Flops Barefoot Beach Party’ will launch the 2013 Key West Food & Wine Festival January 24-27, four fun-filled days of culinary delights and funky events you would only expect to experience in Key West. The Beach Party takes place on Key West’s South Beach, where you can whet your appetite for the Festival with island favorite cuisine, wine and music overlooking the shimmering water of the Florida Straits while dancing and mingling with the locals.
On Thursday evening you can board the Old Town Trolley and ride through Key West’s Historic old town to take a stroll to some of Key West’s most famous and unique neighborhoods and sample food & wine from the island’s one-of-a-kind restaurants.
Other special events include “Bubbles & Bites” with Chef Alice Weingarten, tequila and tacos, Key West kitchen tour, “Let Them EAT Cake” French Masquerade Dance Party, coconut bowling and much more.
