Sure, being a foodie can be a lot of fun. Jetting off to the hottest new restaurants and trying eclectic chef creations sounds like a blast -- until you realize you just spent $30 on an entree that tastes worse than something you could have microwaved at home.
Save time and money in your foodie adventures at Forks and Corks. More than 25 of the Valley's most well-known executive chefs, brew masters, and sommeliers will get together to offer samples of their finest booze and grub, giving you a little more leverage when deciding where to plunk down major moolah for nibbles next time.
The event also features music by jazz artists Doc Jones and Nayo, plus a silent auction benefiting scholarships for the Arizona Hotel and Restaurant Education Foundations.
