Ever wish you could be in two places at once, or that there were five of you? I have, especially lately, since there seem to be so many entertaining events happening simultaneouly. One specific event coming up that I can not attend, seeing as I will be out of town and cannot in fact be in two places at once, is the 20 Year Celebration of the Austin Museum of Art (AMOA) La Dolce Vita Food & Wine Festival on October 15th.
This event features delicacies from over 50 of Austin’s finest restaurants, and over 10 local wineries and spirits artisans. It will take place at the picturesque Italian villa and former AMOA residence, Laguna Gloria, and benefits exhibitions and education programs through the museum.
Today, I was invited to a preview event coming up next week: La Dolce Vita Preview Event this coming Monday, September 28th from 6:30-8 PM. Coincidentally, I will also be traveling, making my own ‘sweet life’, during this event that will preview several of the wines that will be served at La Dolce Vita on October 15th, and local bites from Primizie Osteria and Austin Cake Ball.
I would love to live vicariously through my readers since I am unable to attend this preview event. So, I am looking for 2 people to fill my spot at this preview event, and each selected attendee can even bring 2 guests!
1. Click here (and scroll down to the right side bar) for the listing of local restaurants and wineries/spirits artisans featured at this year’s La Dolce Vita.
2. Email a story about a positive experience you’ve had with one of the La Dolce Vita vendors listed to Rebeccammendations@gmail.com by Thursday, September 24th at midnight. I’m looking for the best meal you’ve eaten, or when you ate/drank too much, or you took your parents to one of the listed restaurants to introduce them to the bf for the first time, a proposal perhaps? Funny, entertaining stories are welcome and encouraged!
3. 2 of the best experiences shared will get to attend the La Dolce Vita Preview Event, and each of you can bring 2 guests with you for an exclusive event of food and wine tasting to get a sneak peek of what was voted the “Best Food Event” in 2008 by Austin Chronicle readers.
4. Winners will also have the opportunity to be featured as a guest blogger on TheRebeccammendations, if you so choose to write a review of the wine and food tasted at the preview event on Monday.
