Saturday night was the main event in the three-day American Wine and Food Festival festival that started with Red Hot @ Red Seven Friday and culminated in a chef's dinner on Sunday, Saturday evening's event was a full-blown extravaganza.

Held at The Universal Backlot, guests were given the opportunity to party amongst rarely-seen sets, such as Spartacus Square, European Square, European Streets, Court of Miracles, and East of Denver Street, I will admit I don't know what IS East of Denver, exactly. But the setting and lighting were spectacular, a fitting backdrop.

The large crowd, estimated at 2,000, were shuttled between the parking lot on the Universal trams, and when those things are not being attacked by sharks, earthquakes and flash floods, those suckers can really move! The wild ride was just a precursor for the wild ride that was to come.
