The All-American Rejects

Saturday-Sunday, Feb. 23-24 – Downtown Food & Wine Fest

Noon-9 p.m. Saturday, noon-7 p.m. Sunday

Lake Eola Park, Robinson Street



More than 40 of Orlando’s finest restaurants serve up specialty dishes (over 100 menu items) at this year’s Downtown Food & Wine Fest. Lining the shores of Lake Eola Park, this two-day culinary adventure has guests tasting the likes of Fogo de Chao’s sliced picanha (top sirloin), Dexter’s street tacos and New England lobster rolls from Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse. Among the 14 different wine stations, Little Black Dress – the official fest wine – pours its Divalicious red and white varieties. Not into wine? No worries, Blue Martini, Pearl Vodka and others shake up cocktails in the Liquid Lounge Area, or you can grab a cold one and catch the game at the sports bar. A full music lineup packs the weekend, with Rosco Bandana and Tropical Street Drums on Saturday, followed by alt-rockers the All-American Rejects and pop singer-songwriter Andy Grammer on Sunday. You’ll leave this one with a satisfied palate and a full belly. – Shelby England
