From February 20-23, Miami will host one of the biggest food events of the year, The Food Network SOBE WFF. It will be a good place to be because -- aside from it being so much warmer in South Beach than pretty much anywhere else -- the fest is its own vortex of taste bud-pleasuring fantasy. Want to eat as many burgers as you can in 3 hours from some of the best burger restaurants in the country? There's an event for that. Want to jam out to classic rock with Sammy Hagar while Emeril Lagasse serves you unlimited tequila and rum drinks? There's an event for that. Actually, there will be over 70 events where attendees can sample food made by some of the most talented chefs in the biz. Here are just 12 of the dozens and dozens of famous food people you can hang out with there: Bobby Deen, Giada De Laurentiis, Tyler Florence, Alex Guarnaschelli, Robert Irvine, Debi Mazar & Gabriele Corcos, Spike Mendelsohn, Kelsey Nixon, Rachael Ray, Mo Rocca and Michael Symon.
