Upcoming: Toast of the Town 2009 – March 26, 2009
For the third year, Wine Enthusiast magazine will be throwing its Toast of the Town wine event in San Francisco. This year features 70-plus wineries from all over the world plus food from 30 Bay Area restaurants, all inside the glorious confines of the San Francisco War Memorial Opera House.
Tickets are $75 to $185 (buy yours early for a deal) and proceeds benefit the San Francisco Food Bank. I’ll be on the scene, with a wine report after the event, so say hi if you see me there. Still, as good as the wine looks, it’s the food that really has me slavering. Consider these participating restaurants and you’ll see what I mean!
