Mercedes-Benz Woodlands releases new 2018 S-Class Cabriolet at It’s a Guy Thing event
For my first Wine and Food Week article click here. In my opinion, #WFW2017 Houston was a huge success. Wine and Food Week started June 5th-11th and was held in the Woodlands, a city outside of Houston, TX. With 14 events in total (Wine Walk sponsored by HEB, Wine and Dine with Kirby’s, and Platinum Wine Vault to name a few), 75 chefs from all around the world including Head Chef Sergio Lopez Vega of Velas 10 in Los Cabos Mexico, Fernando Desa Executive Chef and Product Development Manager at Goya Foods, Sukina Rajani, Owner and Executive Pastry Chef of Macaron by Patisse and you can’t forget the incredible wine and champagne selections #WFW2017 had to offer.
Starting off #WFW2017, was the It’s a Guy Thing event was hosted at MBOTW. Being honest, guys love a few things; cigars, food, beer, and cars. All men have a certain DNA in our bodies that make us go crazy for different cars; big cars, small cars, and fast cars. Mercedes-Benz Woodlands gave the guest a real treat in viewing their new selection of 2017-2018 automobiles. From the crowd favorite G-Wagon, the sports sedan C-Class, and the S-Class Cabriolet.
To take home the new 2017 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S65 AMG Cabriolet is a smooth $200,000. Actually, to be exact, it’s $260,725 (don’t forget to add the tax). Not a bad price for this incredible car, right? But the Cabriolet isn’t just any car, it’s a spaceship. How so do you ask? What I noticed first in the S-Class was the Nappa leather and the black trimming around the seats, second, the Cabriolet has a very space-ish and clean cabin, sits 4 adults comfortably, has a wood and leather steering wheel, black soft top, and 20″ 10-spoke forged wheels. The engine in the S-Class is a 6.0L V12 Bi-Turbo 36V and a 7G-Tronic 7-speed automatic transmission. A beautiful car indeed, but what else would expect from Mercedes?
After drooling over German engineering came the fun part; eating and drinking. Events like #WFW2017 give you a great understanding of food and wine from different regions of the world. The Provisioners Tale provided a meatloaf burger that I never imagined I tried until attending #WFW2017. After eating my first meatloaf burger, I couldn’t help myself to have another and another and 4 more, they were that good. My favorite and only sparkling rose were by Mirabella Franciacorta in Italy. With tasting the brut and rose from Mirabelle Franciacorta, the rose stood out to me the most because of its freshness, little formation of bubbles and easiness to drink.
Wine and Food Week was an incredible event, and I am grateful to have been apart of it. For more information and to attend next years event click here.
