More Episodes

In this episode, Mark Baratto sits down with Mark Certonio, the creator of the Key West Food & Wine Festival.

We talk about when the festival was created, and what his driving force was to take on such a big undertaking. Mark also gives a great overview of what to expect as an attendee, and how you better get your festival tickets before they're all gone (he's not joking).

Mark also sits on the executive committee of the famed "Oldest House Museum" located on 322 Duval Street, which is where the interview took place.

**NOTE** If you want to hear a behind the scenes chatter, I kept the tape rolling as we rant about the future of Marketing,
