Wow have we been busy! Before our recent travels and birthday celebrations, we had the opportunity to partner with Busch Gardens Food & Wine Festival. Plus, we took over their Instagram page to share in all of the fun for our day of #CorksAndCoasters!
Anything with “Food” and “Wine” in the name, you can count us in! One thing that makes Busch Gardens’s event so unique is their concert series. When they reached out, we took a look at the concert schedule and there was no doubt who we were hoping to see, our one and only 90s dream come true, TLC!
Disclosure: We received this complimentary experience through a Busch Gardens media partnership in exchange for this blog post and social media love. All opinions are our own.
We made our way to the park Sunday afternoon to experience all the food and drinks they had to offer, before hitting up the TLC meet and greet, and then concert! Their is e dedicated area of the park for the Food & Wine Festival. We made our way through BBQ, southern dishes, seafood and more before getting in line to head backstage. It was super fun to go backstage and meet the band, who was super friendly and snapped a pic with us. We wished them luck, then got a Rosé refill before heading to the VIP section for the show.
The show was awesome…we were taken back to our childhood when we heard the first few notes of Waterfalls! The girls has a dance troupe who were keeping things high energy as they performed some of their biggest hits. Our other obvious favorites were “Unpretty” and “No Scrubs”.
Check out highlights of the food and drinks (rosé all day, no surprise) that we enjoyed before the show! Some of out favorites included the Chicken Tostones, The Chimichurri Steak, and the Caulifower Cake. After the show, we made our way back towards the front of the park and obviously stopped to grab some dessert. We finished off the night with a an amazing sweat treat, a Cheesecake Griddle Sandwich.
If you want to check out the awesome concert lineup, you better hurry because there are only a few more left this season! Concerts are every Saturday and Sunday through April 29th and all concerts are included with your admission to the park. If you want an even closer spot for the show, then upgrade your tickets to VIP seating to get the best seats in the house for #CorksAndCoasters
