I just got back from a short walk through the OWFandB Fest. It looks like a lot of fun. There's a delicious mix of local food and drink in a party like setting with live music. Event organizers have done a great job bringing in interesting vendors from all over the state. I'm looking forward to exploring the different booths and sampling some of the spirits tomorrow while I man the Eat Salem Booth/Lounge. Thank you to @KandN and @millersf for manning/womanning the booth tonight. It was fun to follow your tweets. A special thanks also to @JillisOregon for including us in this wonderful event. Oregon is a state with an abundance of excellent food and drink and the Oregon Wine Food and Brew Festival is a great place to experience it. Stay tuned to this blog and follow us on Twitter for more. @eatsalem
