This Valentine's day I spent time with my lovely husband and some great friends at the DC International Wine & Food Festival.  We were lucky enough to attend the posh Sparkle Event and then the Friday's Main Event where you could taste over 100 wines, various types of alcohol and tasty small plates. We had a blast listening to the live band, laughing together and tasting new wines. The ticket covers all you and drink and eat in a very positive environment.  I would definitely recommend that you check it out next year, if you can. The dress there was very eclectic but mostly dressy, so if you are attending an event like this, I would wear a cute dress.  I chose a cute emerald Calvin Klein sweater dress that worked out great.
