Starry-eyed food­ies are right in their el­e­ment when the South Beach Wine and Food Fes­ti­val lit­er­ally takes over SoBe and brings Food Net­work’s celeb chefs—the likes of Guy Fieri and Bobby Flay—to town for five days of sam­pling and sip­ping at more than 50 events. Our Pick: The glam­orous fun ranges from in­ti­mate din­ners and wine sem­i­nars to af­ter-dark beach par­ties. But for the first-time fes­ti­val­goer, the Grand Tast­ing Vil­lage held on the beach Satur­day and Sun­day of­fers cook­ing demos by the who’s who of culi­nary rock stars, wine sam­plings ga­lore and new prod­uct launches. Stay: If you can get a room here, the Loews Mi­ami Beach Ho­tel is on the edge of the sands where big tents for events are set up. It’s abuzz with ac­tiv­ity and a good spot to spy celeb chefs who of­ten stay at this 790-room beach­front re­sort with their en­tourages. sobe­
