Lee Schrager Promotion to Include New Wine & Food Fest?

Mazel tov to Lee Brian Schrager, Grand Poobah of the South Beach and New York Wine & Food Festivals, who also happens to have a day job which just got much bigger today. Promoted from the Director of Media Relations and Special Events of Southern Wine & Spirits of America to Vice President, Corporate Communications and National Events, Schrager sure does have his work cut out for him. But nice work if you can get it, really. And while his new role will involve expanding the company's relationships in local markets, much of Schrager's job involves jetsetting around the globe scouting talent for large scale events. Speaking of which, the rumor mill is all abuzz with news that Schrager and SWS will launch another festival in a major food city within the next 18 months. Word is the fest will take place in a city Schrager has been spotted in recently. We know it can't be Machu Picchu, so the likelier suspects would have to be Chicago or Los Angeles. Stay tuned. We're so on it. [EaterWire]
