Erin Perkins is the editor of Eater Carolinas.

The BB&T Charleston Wine + Food Festival released their list of events for the upcoming 2014 long weekend, and over 5,000 visitors logged onto the site. Tickets always go quickly, so Eater predicts the can't miss happenings that are sure to sell out first. Sales start on Wednesday, September 18, so set your reminders now.

1. Charleston GI presents "Perfectly Paired Dinners" featuring Gramercy Tavern chef Michael Anthony and FIG chefs Jason Stanhope and Mike Lata. When the talent behind New York City big night out destination Gramercy Tavern teams up with the dynamic duo from Charleston farm-to-table staple FIG, you're sure to have a meal you'll soon not forget. (Friday, March 7, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. Tickets: $175)

2. Charleston GI presents "Perfectly Paired Dinners" with Cúrate chef Katie Button and Maverick Southern Kitchens chef Joseph Palma. The plates will be served at High Cotton for this pair and should be interesting. On one side, you will see Button's Spanish tapas influence and on the other you will have Palma's Southern heritage. Perhaps Button will bring some melt-in-your-mouth jamón ibérico from her Asheville restaurant. (Friday, March 7, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. Tickets: $175)

3. Charleston GI presents "Perfectly Paired Dinners" with Miller Union chef Steven Satterfield and Husk/McCrady's chef Sean Brock. Both Satterfield and Brock have a love of all things Southern. It's predicted that Atlanta comfort food chef Satterfield and Charleston chef Brock will concentrate on ingredients sourced south of the Mason-Dixon line. (Friday, March 7, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. Tickets: $175)

4. SCE&G presents "Small Batch Bourbons + Hog Heaven Cooking Demonstration + Tasting" with chef Edward Lee. Bacon and bourbon—what else do you need? Louisville chef Lee returns to the BB&T Charleston Wine + Food Festival to demonstrate Southern favorites with a Korean influenced twist. (Saturday, March 8, 2014 at 1:30 p.m. - 2:15 p.m. Tickets: $45)

5. SCE&G presents "Southeast Asian Street Foods: A Day Trip to Thailand Cooking Demonstration + Tasting" with chef Andy Ricker. Those who have tasted the fish sauce wings from Ricker's Pok Pok restaurants will attest to the chef's skill with Southeast Asian flavors. Expect authentic Thai cuisine and exotic cocktails. (Saturday, March 8, 2014 at 3:00 p.m. - 3:45 p.m. Tickets: $45)

6.Charleston GI presents "Perfectly Paired Dinners" with Houston's Underbelly chef Chris Shepherd and The Macintosh/Oak Steakhouse chef Jeremiah Bacon. Between Shepard's in-house butchery at Underbelly and Bacon's predilection for pork, Eater predicts a meat-filled meal. (Saturday, March 8, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. Tickets: $175)

7. "Edmund's Oast Beer, Wine + Cocktail Dinner" featuring an entire cast of characters. Forthcoming brew pub Edmund's Oast isn't set to open until December, but that shouldn't stop you from getting excited for this event. Edmund's chef Andy Henderson will join with Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo, chefs/co-owners of Animal in Los Angeles to create a one of a kind progressive dinner for guests. Co-owners of Edmund's, Scott Shor and Rich Carley, along with the Edmund's brewmaster Cameron Read will collaborate with Jeppe Jamit-Bjergsø of Evil Twin Brewing, Micah Melton of The Aviary and Paul Greico of Hearth to guarantee perfect beverage pairings. This will be the dinner you'll be talking about until the 2015 BB&T Charleston Wine + Food Festival. (Saturday, March 8, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. Tickets: $175)
