OC Weekly hosted their annual Decadence – A Celebration of the Senses this past Friday night at the Fairmont in Newport Beach. Touted as an upscale gala that tingles all of your senses, all lucky attendees could sample food from over 30 local restaurants, drink from the many beverage vendors, dance to the funkiest beats in Orange County, and more. At first glance you would think of a giant party, but in the end, guests pretty much attended a food fest. OC Weekly mentioned free parking on their website; however, everyone who drove there found out about the $5 parking fee. OC Weekly also enforced a dress code, which I found unnecessary because of the nature of this food fest, and that some guys did not dress up at all. Also, throughout the entire night, I never once witnessed any art exhibits. Surely they head in the right direction with having guests experience food with all their senses: seeing it, hearing it cook, smelling it, picking it up, and tasting it.

Check out this montage of photos I acquired from Decadence:

Will you come back to Decadence next year? For such a low price for all-you-can-eat AND drink, what have you got to lose?
