SF Chefs. Food. Wine. This Week In San Francisco
SF Chefs. Food. Wine. is happening in this week in San Francisco at Union Square from August 6th through the 9th. It's going to be an amazing four day Food & Wine event of bacchanalian proportions, celebrating the unique and diverse bounty that San Francisco has to offer.
Proceeds from this event will go to four SF charities - Feeding America, a leading supporter of the SF Food Bank, Meals On Wheels, the Golden Gate Restaurant Association Scholarship Fund and Project Open Hand.
Another great aspect of this event is that they will be partnering with the SF Conservation Corps to try to achieve a zero waste event creating no landfill, by using recyclable products such as silverware and wine glassware made of corn resin. How cool is that???
So, you have NO idea how BUMMED I am to not be attending. My 3 favorite things and all in my old 'hood and I'm here in NY! Go Figure. Were I there, I would be attending, and if I didn't already have plans on this coast, I would've bought a ticket on Virgin America to fly out to attend. Trust.
So perhaps, my West Side Foodies would like to represent for me?
Here's hoping so...
Holla at me if you are interested.
Otherwise click here for the ticket deets.
Tickets run for $150 for a Day Pass and then it varies according to various Events - such as Receptions, Suppers and even an Urban BBQ. Damn! Just writing about this pisses me off that I can't go!
Whatever the case, if you're into Food and Wine and can make it, then I say, Go!
