Because the third time is the charm, (and this is their third year of “Toasting” although I don’t know how they’ll top last year’s event-what a blast!) the food and wine is superb, and it’s to support a very important cause which is really hurting this year, the San Francisco Food Bank. PLUS, to make it even more enticing, check out the early bird savings if you sign up ASAP! C U there.
What: A music, wine and restaurant extravaganza! While listening to the sounds of live jazz, taste 500 premium wines and spirits from over 70 domestic and international producers and savor the culinary creations from over 30 top Bay Area restaurants- from Ana Mandura to Zinnia, all in the glamorous setting of the San Francisco War Memorial Opera House.
