Our 8 Favorite Instagram Photos This Week

We divided and conquered this week: Team Los Angeles covered the LA Food and Wine Festival and Team Mexico hit Oaxaca's mescal distillery row for some "sampling." The result: Team Los Angeles burned through town in a brand-new Audi A7 and chowed down on food from all our favorite celebrity chefs, and Team Mexico fell in love with grasshoppers and ground up some charred agave hearts in the mud. Kind of opposite ends of the spectrum there, both good.

We checked out some of the exciting places our favorite Instagrammers found themselves over the weekend. Don't forget to follow us @foodrepublic and tag us if you see or eat something awesome.
