Paella festival to celebrate 10 years of Jose Garces’ Amada

Hard to believe it was only 10 years ago when Jose Garces left his job at Stephen Starr's El Vez to branch out and start his own restaurant empire. Amada is celebrating its 10th anniversary ("Amadaversary," if you will) with a giant paella street festival on Sunday in Old City with live music, cocktails and tons of Spanish food.

Where: Amada at 217 Chestnut St.

When: October 18, 2015 from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

How much: $10
