This is a trip I picked since I was invited by Smith Devereux Wines. The dinner was great. Met with the Cedric the Entertainer, the Ian Devereux and the Melier family.
And I made great friends there from the next table over and we had a few pictures taken with Cedric the Entertainer. We had several wines but the main wine was the Cedric’s Zetta Wine named in honor of Cedric’s mother. You can read the details here on Zetta Wine.
I have a handful of pictures from the event here – just click on the pic below or the link under it to go to the picture page:

[26-30 January, 2022 Key West, FL, US]
So this is the 13th Annual Key West Food and Wine Fest 2022. My 12th time here 🙂 I missed the first one ever last year in 2021 due to COVID. Oh well…
Every year, the weather is different, from blasting hot, just right, to cool to cold. This year, it tended to be mostly cool during the day and cold at night.
There were a lot of events and there were less attendees than normal. Hopefully in 2023, we will get back to normal crowd levels. Anyway, enough words, let the pictures do the talking. Pictures are in chorological order. I left some brief comments under some pictures. So you can click on the pic below or the link under it to go to the picture page:

[January, 19-26, 2020 Key West, FL, US]
So this is the 11th Annual Key West Food and Wine Fest (2020) and my 11th time here 🙂 Here are the pictures from the fest. Not as many as usual, but there are a few interesting shots. Went to the “Beer and Grilled Cheese” event on Thursday, the aquarium for the Grand Tasting on Friday and even thou the weather was rather horrific (wind and rain), went to the Duval Street Wine Crawl.

[25-27 October, 2019, New Orleans, LA, US]
The Vampire Ball at the House of Blues thrown by the Endless Night krewe has come to another end in New Orleans. This is my fourth Endless Night in New Orleans (one in New York). I usually go for the Friday and Saturday night events and fly back on Sunday; however, I decided to do the Sunday night dinner and the gathering. Sunday was more conducive to talking with people as the music wasn’t blaring at maximum 🙂 Plus the food was great at the House of Blues New Orleans. I forgot to take pictures of the food – sorry about that…
So here are the pictures, click on the pic below or on the link:

[26-Sep-2019 Abbey Road Studios, Westminster, UK ]
Time for something crazy. Went to London to attend a two hour event. Okay, it was in Abbey Road Studios to listen to The Beatles’ Abbey Road album – with wine and food on @6th of September, one day before the international release of the remastered album (vinyl records and CDs). Thanks to Hilton Honors for throwing this gala event. It was inside Abbey Road Studios. No pictures in the hallways! But we were allowed to take pictures in the mythic Studio 2 – where The Beatles recorded about 90% of all of their songs.

so I took a ton of pictures. Oh, and I thought I was crazy. No. I met Jane at the studios – she came in from Siberia – traveling 4 days on the trans-Siberian railroad to Moscow, then flew in from there just to be at Abbey Road one day on the 26th of September! Now, that is insane dedication to The Beatles!

After the Abbey Road experience, I heard Paul and Ringo were going to show up so I stayed a bit. A “bit” equals over 5 hours! Got pictures of Peter Jackson (director of “The Lord of The Rings, etc), and then Ringo and then Paul!

So, please go see all of the pictures! The images chronicles the whole trip from the plane, hotel, visiting Platform 9 3/4 at Kings Cross to the whole Abbey Road experience. Click on the picture below or on the link to see them all!
