Food and Wine Festival At National Harbor

Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending Food and Wine Festival at National Harbor. It was a lot of fun. There was wine tasting, beer tasting, liquor tasting and food. Lots and lots of food.  Plus, I got to hang out with Carla and Ariane from Top Chef Season 5.
