WINNER: South Beach Wine and Food Festival Next to Art Basel, this annual event is the highlight of the season, and one place where famous and normal people eat and drink together, all while hoping to be seen. Drawing Food Network personalities such as Rachael Ray, Curtis Stone, Guy Fieri, Bobby Flay, Emeril Lagasse and the now-scorned Paula Deen, the four-day festival includes more than 50 events and 200 chefs, many of who are locals. There's food and wine to suit every palate and taste bud. Sure, tickets can be pricey, but they are worth every dollar. The next one is scheduled for Feb. 20-23.
