let's eat @ Festival Epicure

This will be my sixth summer in Windsor and I've only had a chance to attend one Festival Epicure. We're usually on holiday but this year we'll be in Windsor and I definitely plan to attend. Anyone interested in joining me? C'mon Detroiters!

According to the festival's Facebook page:

2009 marks the 15th annual Festival Epicure: A Celebration Of Food, Wine and Music. Every year the bar gets raised higher and this year is no exception. With it's eclectic, high caliber approach to every facet of the festival, Festival Epicure continues to kick off the Windsor-Detroit region's summer festival season with a bang.

Last year's visitors enjoyed both scrumptious taster portions and fantastic full meal offerings from the Festival Epicure food vendors. Wine vendors also offered sampler servings or wine by the glass. Wiser's Canadian Whiskey and Polar Ice Vodka will be this years spirits vendors with a full array of spirits in their Summer Refreshment Tent! Of course, your Epicurean experience wouldn't be complete without entertainment! Festival Epicure 2009 will deliver toe tappin' tunes featuring the area's top R&B, pop, jazz, swing and Latin artists.

THE $5.00 MENU IS BACK AT FESTIVAL EPICURE 2009!!! All restaurants will be featuring incredible offerings from $4.00 - $6.00 CDN (excluding Woody’s full servings of their incredibly delicious ribs). Couple that with the best R&B/Jazz, blues, Motown, & indie rock, you have a can’t-miss weekend. It all culminates Sunday with performances by award winning nouveau flamenco artist, Johannes Linstead; legendary Motown artists, Rare Earth; and closing with the Kimmie Horne Show!!! Just bring your appetites, sunshine is always included.
See you July 10, 11 & 12.Portion of proceeds to benefit the Kidney Foundation of Canada. Visit for complete details.
