Wine me, dine me sets the table for the Cincinnati Food & Wine Classic: a foodie's dream come true

Julie Niesen Gosdin, the voice behind the wine me, dine me food blog, usually serves up a "Pick of the Week," when she visits a local eatery and samples a signature menu item. This week, she's picking her favorite events at the Cincinnati Food and Wine Classic.

This year is the very first for the event, headed up by former Cincinnati Magazine dining editor Donna Covrett and food blogger-turned-cookbook-maven Courtney Tsitouris. 

They had the difficult job of checking out food festivals around the country--where they ate, drank, and met a ton of great talent whom they're bringing to Cincinnati.

The festival sets up at Washington Park on Sept. 12-13, with other events around the city. A VIP Indulge Pass is $380, which gets you into everything (plus one after-party), but what if you don't have the time for a two-day extravaganza, or if you just don't have it in the budget to do the VIP pass?
