It's still a month away, but it's never too soon to get your plans set for the Austin Food & Wine Festival. Sadly overshadowed by the massive SXSW, this two-day event is put on by Food and Wine magazine, and offers tons of cooking demonstrations, as well as places to try some small plates. Over 80 exhibitors will be available, as will plenty of wine and cocktail seminars, two lounges offering complimentary beer, wine, and cocktails — repeat: Free Beer! — and an autograph tent with chefs inside signing their Hancocks to some cookbooks. Tickets aren't cheap — they start at $250 — but they're totally worth it, even if you decide against Instgramming every bit you take.
