This year, the Columbus Food and Wine Affair got in the spirit of cocktails.The new event, hosted in conjunction with the annual food and wine event at Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, offered guests a night of liquor and cocktail tastings as well as a mixology competition. While sipping spirits from national and local distillers, including Middle West Spirits and Watershed Distillery, guests noshed on appetizers created by the culinary team at the Hollywood Casino and enjoyed entertainment by DJ Ant. Proceeds benefited the Central Ohio Restaurant Association Foundation.
