The inaugural Providence Food and Wine Festival Aug. 25-27 promises to be a belly buster of gastronomic proportions. Restaurants and chefs throughout the city are holding three days of nearly 30 tastings, events, and educational panels to showcase the city's culinary offerings. Opening night features "Red, White & Bleu, An American Wine Experience.'' Night owls need to check out the late-night venue program all three nights with free appetizers, drink, and music throughout the city from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Dine Around Providence Aug. 27 lets guests, for $40 per person, trek through downtown and sample food at more than 30 eateries. Educational panels include those on understanding wine, eating locally, hosting dinners, wine pairing, and more. On opening night, charity dinners will be held around town, including at The Capital Grille, New Rivers, Gracie?s, Gallery Z, The Federal Hill House, and Centro to support a variety of Rhode Island charities. For exact times and ticket prices, visit the Providence Food and Wine Festival website or call 401-440-8916.
