At the Final Party, look for Cutler’s Artisan Spirits pouring tastings, as well as a specialty cocktail created just for the tour, the “A&WT’ini.”

Don’t worry, we’ll feed you — nibbles at every venue and more nosh at the Final Party: Brasil Arts Café; Cielito Restaurant, State & Fig, Enterprise Fish Company, Blush Restaurant & Lounge, Chase Bar & Grill, Los Arroyos Mexican Restaurant, Ca’Dario Pizzeria, Savoy Café & Deli, Chuck’s Waterfront Grill, Alchemy Café, Finch & Fork, bouchon Santa Barbara, Opal Restaurant & Bar, Sugar Cat Studio cupcakes, Caribbean Coffee and from the Santa Barbara Public Market: Crazy Good Bread Co., Culture Counter, Santa Monica Seafood and Wine + Beer.
