So if you have time to check things out, hop on over to the Taste of Edmonton website and check out Sip 'n Savour. There are still some neat pop up tastings they have going on the rest of the week, as well as workshops - which I believe you need to buy tickets for in order to attend. I hope they keep the Sip 'n Savour event for next year and come up with a whole slew of new workshops and themed pop up tastings to do. The only suggestion for improvement I would have for the Taste of Edmonton is to try to offer some workshops in the evenings as well. Although I'm sure they were scheduled during the day so that they wouldn't interfere with the pop up tastings in the evenings, I'm sure there are plenty of people who would be interested in attending a workshop, but are unable to as they work during the weekdays. Although there are workshops on the weekends as well, I know there were and still are several being held on weekdays that I'll be unable to attend.
Thanks to @yelpedmonton for inviting me to this moovealous Yelp Elite event, twas a fun time! Also thanks to Chef Shane Chartrand for taking the time to talk to me about the Aboriginal Cuisine pop up tasting, it was a very interesting and informative chat!
