Pebble Beach, long a destination for lovers of golf, horses, and classic cars, is turning its attention to gastronomes. From March 27 through 30, Pebble Beach Resorts will host its first Pebble Beach Food & Wine event (www.pebblebeachfoodandwine.com), which will bring together 35 prominent chefs and representatives from some 200 wineries to preside over cooking demonstrations, a rare-wine auction and dinner, tastings of more than 300 wines, and other activities. Ticket prices will range from $165 for a single event to $12,400 for a VIP package that will provide accommodations and access to all activities and to after-hours parties with the winemakers and chefs. The Fontainebleau Miami Beach (www.bleaumiamibeach.com), built in 1954, has begun a renovation that, the resort’s representatives say, will cost $1 billion by the time it is completed next summer. The project will expand the property from 920 to more than 1,500 rooms, including a 4,300-square-foot penthouse.
