If you're in the Houston area, I highly recommend making the trek out to the Sugar Land Wine and Food Affair. There's an event for every gourmand. If you're a foodie, they have you covered. If you're into wine, there's an event for you. If you love cocktails, there's stuff for us, too.
And the tickets are inexpensive for an event of this caliber. For something practically in our own backyard, the Sugar Land Wine and Food Affair is easy to love.
