Cows ‘n Cabs, a charity-based event presented by ABC Fine Wine & Spirits’ David Larue and celebrated Chef John Rivers of 4 Rivers Smokehouse and The COOP, returned to Winter Park’s West Meadow at 150 North New York Avenue for the fifth time on Saturday, October 25, 2015.

The outdoor, Western-themed festival—founded in 2010 with the hope to break the cycle of poverty Central Florida— benefits the Community Food & Outreach Center and Elevate Orlando, which assists with fighting hunger and mentoring youth, respectively.

Anheuser-Busch, Southern Wine & Spirits and ABC Fine Wine & Spirits contributed to the evening with more than 200 wines, spirits and craft beers samplings. A selection of gourmet samples were presented by a group of 20 invite-only, local restaurants. 4 Rivers Smokehouse, Cress and K Restaurant, are among the many that have rubbed shoulders with the James Beard Foundation, while local newcomers include The COOP, P is for Pie and Txokos Basque Kitchen.
