11/13-15: Fabulous Food Show at IX Center



Nothing like unleashing the Fabulous Food Show on us right before the holidays. Then again, what’s a few extra pounds gonna hurt with all the gorging we’re gonna be doing over the next six weeks? The fourth annual foodie blowout features more than 200 vendors dishing out everything from candy samples to cooking gear. Organizers are promising more than 100 ongoing demonstrations, so there’s probably gonna be something cooking, baking or frying nearly every second of the three-day fest. Celebrity chefs — like Guy Fieri, Bobby Flay and Tyler Florence — will also be on hand with cooking demos that’ll either inspire or discourage you from whipping up similar eats at home. Hometown hero Michael Symon will also be there. But we’re most excited to visit Sweet Street — which includes everything from gut-busting cakes to tooth-decaying chocolates — and the Grand Tasting Pavilion, which boasts more than 300 wines, beers and other tasty drinks. You’re gonna put on the pounds in two weeks anyway. Just think of this show as a test run. The Fabulous Food Show takes place at the I-X Center (One I-X Center Dr., 216.265.2665) from 10 a.m.-8:30 p.m. today, 10 a.m.-8 p.m. tomorrow and 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Sunday. Tickets: $25-$65. — Michael Gallucci
