Eat, Drink (and Drink and Drink) and Be Pretty at Last Night's Scottsdale Culinary Festival

Page 2 of 2

Compared to last year, last night's Eat, Drink and Be Pretty seemed to place more emphasis in the beauty portion of the evening. While the fashion show was to be expected (no designer this year, just selected items from Caché), we don't remember there being a booth for Pearl Medspa or a hair styling team from Toni & Guy -- and really, who gets their hair cut at a culinary festival? The ones who have been drinking, that's who.

In all fairness though, that wasn't hard to do given the fact that alcohol made up a good portion of the evening's offerings with wine, champagne, and cocktails often overshadowing the selection of Jamaba Juice smoothies, cheese and crackers, and über casual chain restaurants like Zoës Kitchen and Pita Jungle.
