Wine & Dine for the Arts 2014 tickets on sale

wine dine for the arts 2014 save the dateA heads up: This year's -- well, next year's -- OK, the next Albany Wine & Dine for the Arts Festival is January 16-18. That's a bit of a way off, but tickets for the festival went on sale this week. And because many of the events associated with the annual festival sell out, buying tickets earlier rather than later is probably a good idea if you're interested in attending.

This year's festival events include:
+ A grands tasting, with 70 chefs and restaurants and 250 wines, spirits, and beers
+ The "rising star" chefs pavilion
+ A reception and book signing with chef Suvir Saran
+ The Slider Slam -- 15 chefs competing to make the best sliders
+ The Barista Albany competition, in which local baristas compete
+ A mystery basket-style competition for chefs
+ A gala reception and six-course dinner

Some of the events require individual tickets, and prices start at $10 and go up from there.

The beneficiaries of the 2014 festival are: Albany Barn, Albany Institute, Albany Symphony, Capital Rep, and the Park Playhouse.
