Scottsdale, AZ, May 30, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- The Valley of the Sun will ‘Sizzle, Sip, & Swizzle’ this Fall when Savor Scottsdale introduces Eats3, Arizona’s new celebration of food, wine, and spirits.
Eats3 invites the world food and wine community to celebrate a ‘uniquely Arizona’ epicurean experience at SouthBridge in downtown Scottsdale, October 23 – 25, 2008. Dozens of acclaimed Arizona chefs will present their finest cuisine along with international talents including culinary legend, Jacques Pépin.
The ‘S to the third power’ tongue-twister refers to the weekend’s food, wine, and spirits focus. “Sizzle, Sip, Swizzle; it’s certainly a mouthful, but that’s the idea,” says Peter Kasperski, noted Scottsdale restaurateur and Eats3 board member. “It’s a party for the palate. We’re giving the world’s foodies a taste of ‘big city’ dining Scottsdale style.”
Eats3 will thrill guests with an exceptional event schedule, including: a cocktail-infused ArtWalk; exclusive in-gallery dinners by famed Scottsdale chefs; a high-energy kick-off party; the national Domain Charbay Iron Bartender competition; a Grand Tasting featuring over thirty master chefs and more than one-hundred wine makers; and the signature BBQ & Bubbles Finale.
“Scottsdale now offers world-class dining experiences with one-of-a-kind flavor and style,” says Savor Scottsdale director Kerri Conlon. “This event captures the spirit and momentum of our booming dining scene and promises to secure Scottsdale’s reputation as a major international dining destination.”
Eats3 is a non-profit event benefiting Grow for Good and Waste Not. Event details, travel information, and tickets are available at www.eats3.com.
