looks like a tasty weekend! WOW...lots of very creative events combining food with theatre, film, art and all for a good cause! Reminds me of the NYCWFF with lots of individual events at different locations....much more fun than just a big tented event. Now to decide how many events i can realistically go to....Good work, CTbites!

This looks like a fantastic event. It is so nice that you thought to include activities for kids, and I've been wanting to see "Jiro Dreams of Sushi" for ages. Thank you for putting together a great weekend.
