Laguna Beach To Host Food & Wine Fest on March 10th

Is the recession over yet? Is it safe to spend major coin on food and wine festivals now? Because if it is, there's the Laguna Beach Uncorked! event happening on Saturday, March 10, from 1 p.m. - 4 p.m. on the Festival of Arts grounds, which might be worth the splurge.

The general admission is a whopping $75 pre-sale (if you buy it by March 9th). Or else it's $95 at the door. Or you could just throw your money at the VIP tickets which are $125 (psst, it's limited to 150 big spenders) which includes a 10 a.m. wine seminar with Master Sommelier, Peter Neptune, and an early 12 noon entrance to the event. For the premium ticket price you also get a Laguna Beach tote bag along with a commemorative wine glass that everyone who pays the general admission gets.

24 of Laguna Beach's finer restaurants and 25 wineries will be there. A full list follows.
