We came, we ate, we conquered. This year's Music City Food & Wine festival was off the charts epic—and here are the social moments to prove it.

Every year, some of the country's best chefs and artisan purveyors gather in Nashville for the three-day bacchanal known as Music City Food & Wine. This weekend, we witnessed the festival first-hand and checked out epic demos hosted by culinary stars including Jonathan Waxman, Hugh Acheson, Andrew Zimmern, Jimmy Bannos, Tim Love, Susan Feniger, and Marcus Samuelsson

Here are some of the best moments from our weekend of sun, fun, and hot chicken overload.

There was barbecue—with caviar:

We ate all the wings. All the wings.

We got to hang with some of our favorite chefs, including Susan Feniger and Marcus Samuelsson.

We witnessed Andrew Zimmern's gravity-defying glasses first-hand.

There was frosé. What's a party in 2017 without frosé.

The frosé is flowing, Gale Mayes is rockin', and we are loving Gospel Brunch! #MCFW @elouanwines

Just look at this Bloody Mary and feel the fomo (or #fwomo as the case may be).

Our #BloodyMary DIY Garnish Bar is easy like Sunday morning... Give it a whirl at Gospel Brunch today @musiccityfw. 🎶 #MCFW

We stole this sign. JUST KIDDING we didn't steal this sign. But we thought about it.

We couldn't agree more, @kjwines. 🤣 #musiccityfw 📷: @midge.clark

Everything in these tents? We ate it all.

Thanks for an incredible night, Nashville! We can't wait to see you back at the festival tomorrow. #MCFW photo by @charles.reagan
