PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – It’s enough to make your mouth water: imagine putting Philly’s top chefs, their menus, and bars into one room — giving you all you can eat and drink. It’s happening next month.

If you love fine food and unique drinks, you’ll want your name on this guest list.

“There will be performances, and there are over 70 of the top chefs in the Philadelphia area providing free food. It is just a fabulous time,” says Richard Vague the second annual Philly Feastival is more than just an adventure in gastronomy (if not gluttony). He heads the organization that reaps the benefits from ticket sales.

“This is a fundraiser for the arts in Philadelphia — and in particular, for the Philadelphia Live Arts and Fringe Festival, which is a great, leading-edge avant-garde festival in the first two and a half weeks in September.”

The Feastival is on September 14th at Pier 9 on Penns Landing. Details at
